The patient in this picture went to a tattoo studio and inquired about having his tattoo removed. They informed him that they could tattoo a salt solution into his tattoo and it would be gone in three sessions. Three sessions later he presented to our clinic requesting information on laser tattoo removal. As you can see, the strips where the tattoo was injected show crusting, scarring, and retained ink. In fact, the ink doesn't look lighter at all. Lasers are the gold standard for removing tattoos. Once he is completed healed from these injections we will discuss with him his other options including laser tattoo removal.
