Best options for tattoo removal

Posted:

Have a tattoo you want to get rid of?  When it comes to over-the-counter creams and ointments, doctors are warning you get what you pay.

"If they're not used properly you can get a burn. There's scarring that's a potential and you also can get a pigment change, too light or too dark," dermatologist Miral Skelsey said.

Laser removal, on the other hand, is a slow process that breaks down the tattoo pigment.

It takes multiple treatments and can be painful, but experts say it is the best way to remove unwanted tattoos.
