Wrecking Balm Tattoo Removal: Does it Work?

Wrecking Balm Tattoo Removal: Does it Work?

Tattoos are generally thought to be permanent, although there is a laser removal system that can take them off. Recently, some creams have hit the market claiming to help remove unwanted tattoos, and Wrecking Balm Tattoo Removal cream is one of those. Do these creams, and in particular Wrecking Balm Tattoo Removal actually work? A quick look at the theory behind them will help answer that question.

Like most tattoo removal topical applications, Wrecking Balm Tattoo Removal is a tattoo fading system that is designed to gradually reduce the appearance of the tattoo over time. Tricholoracetic acid, or TCA, is the active ingredient in Wrecking Balm. It is a chemical that is also used in chemical peels designed to remove thin layers of skin and reveal smoother, healthier skin beneath. Most people use these to reduce signs of aging and other skin problems. In the case of Wrecking Balm Tattoo Removal, the ingredient is designed to slowly remove the skin that has been infused with ink in the tattooing process.

There is some evidence that TCA is effective in fading the appearance of tattoos, however much of the information available from people who have actually tried Wrecking Balm Tattoo Removal indicates it doesn’t work as well as most had hoped. A chemical peel is generally not designed to reach the deep level of the skin into which a tattoo gun injects ink. Therefore many tattoos won’t see much fading from using the product. Old, already faded tattoos or those done with non-professional tattoo guns may respond better because they ink is closer to the surface.

Wrecking Balm Tattoo Removal is somewhat misleading in its name. It is not a true tattoo removal system, but rather a tattoo fading cream. Unlike laser treatments which go into the skin and actually remove the ink, this type of cream can only slowly affect the surface of the skin. While the company does promise to make your tattoo virtually disappear, the actual results are bound to be as mixed as the types of tattoos the cream is used on.

Certainly Wrecking Balm Tattoo Removal is far more affordable than a laser removal, but when you truly want a tattoo entirely gone, you are probably better off with the laser treatment. If you will be happy simply to see the tattoo faded and not quite as noticeable, then giving Wrecking Balm Tattoo Removal a try might be worth it. Don’t be surprised, however, if you don’t see the results you were hoping for.

Bear in mind that as with any chemical peel application, you may have adverse skin reactions to Wrecking Balm Tattoo Removal including redness and irritation. For most people, however, the cream is generally safe to use. Still, you should consider consulting with a dermatologist prior to using any home tattoo removal cream.

Tattoos are meant to be permanent and so it stands to reason that they aren’t going to be easy to use. Wrecking Balm Tattoo Removal is one of the possible options, but for the best results, consider laser removal.
