Is home tattoo removal safe or even possible?
It isn’t possible for home tattoo removal to be 100% successful. What's more, it isn't always safe and you run the risk of harming your skin.
If you’ve recently had a tattoo that you regret, or you’ve come to dislike an existing piece of body art, we understand that you may want to get rid of it as quickly as possible for the most reasonable price. Laser tattoo removal is the safest and gentlest way to clear unwanted ink.
It’s absolutely essential that you don’t try home tattoo removal using a DIY method. So-called ‘quick fix’ methods are often dangerous and may lead to serious scarring that looks worse than the original unwanted ink.
How can I remove a tattoo at home fast?
There are countless ‘at home methods’ that claim to remove tattoos, like tattoo removal creams and other DIY methods involving salt, lemon juice, hydrogen peroxide, and even sandpaper. These methods have very little science behind them and will usually involve scrubbing at your skin or peeling away layers, which can be detrimental to your skin’s health, as well as your overall health.
Additionally, these home remedies won’t actually remove your tattoo, because it’s highly unlikely that you’ll be able to get to the deeper layers of skin.
At-home tattoo removal methods can often leave your skin raw and exposed, which are perfect ingredients for infection and scarring.
Tattoo ink is located in the dermis, the middle layer of the skin. Scrubbing away at the superficial layer will not remove it.
Our laser tattoo removal uses a low-energy laser which significantly reduces any chance of blistering, scarring or lasting damage and accurately targets the ink inside the dermis.
What can you do instead of home tattoo removal?
When it comes to getting rid of unwanted tattoos, professional tattoo removal is by far the best option, and for a fast and safe tattoo removal, laser removal is the only truly effective procedure to get rid of your unwanted tattoo. NAAMA’s unique laser technology operates at incredibly fast speeds but uses safe and low energy, meaning it’s less painful than most other laser systems and minimises lasting damage.
One of the biggest concerns that our clients have when it comes to removing tattoos is how to get rapid removals, and thanks to our unique tattoo removal procedure which means minimal downtime between each laser treatment, you can get your body art removed much quicker.
Another important element of speedy tattoo removal is the aftercare schedule you follow. By drinking plenty of water, keeping the area hydrated and staying out of the sun, you’ll be helping your skin heal faster.
