What is TCA Tattoo Removal?

Most people are familiar with laser tattoo removal. Some people are familiar with tattoo removal creams. Few people are familiar with TCA tattoo removal.

TCA tattoo removal is a very unique method that some people use in an attempt to fade their tattoos. TCA is an acronym for trichloroacetic acid.

The TCA solution used for tattoo removal is advertised to be a skin peeling agent. TCA has been used in the cosmetic industry. You may have heard of health and beauty spas that offer chemical peels.

This treatment is sometimes used for treating acne scarring, uneven pigmentation, blemishes, sunspots, fine wrinkles, and damaged skin.

When one receives a TCA treatment, the solution is applied to the skin which causes a peeling away of the top layers of skin.

When TCA is used for tattoo removal, a specially diluted solution of TCA is applied to the tattoo. This application is supposed to result in a slight inflammation of the skin. The TCA is then supposed to gently break the ink particles down. These particles supposedly then work their way to the surface of the skin and are removed from your body when the skin sheds.

The process involves several sessions of treatment. It's reported that the number of treatments really depends on factors such as size of the tattoo, the amount of ink in the tattoo, the depth of the ink, and the darkness of the tattoo. Faint, fine, outline tattoos may fade faster than deep black tribal type tattoos.

One popular brand of a TCA tattoo removing product is InkBusters., LLC is a company located in Kingman, Arizona.

You can find TCA solutions in varying strengths. Caution should be used in buying concentrated bottles of TCA for TCA tattoo removal. The risk of getting the potency incorrect is very high!

      TCA really does work. I tried it for the 1st time a few months back to finish fading three letters on my arm. I had already went through 3 treatments of laser removal but couldn't continue because of my RA medication. I found TCA on the inkbusters website, a little skeptical but I ordered it anyway. It actually faded more than I expected it to. I just applied another application, hopefully this will be the final app and will fade the rest of the tattoo completely.
