Let us look at the pros and cons to know how well does this work.
- It is formulated to apply on all tattoo colors.
- It is cheaper than laser treatment and can be done at home easily.
- It can be used on all skin types.
- Unlike the laser treatment it does not need any prescriptions to buy and it requires no medications to be followed after application.
- It only fades the tattoo and does not remove the tattoo completely.
- There is no guarantee for the product to be used.
- It contains salicylic acid which is a harmful ingredient that damages the layer of your skin.
