Using an over-the-counter topical cream or gel is the least expensive way to remove a tattoo at home. These topical creams and gels work by removing old layers of skin which will allow the tattooed layers of skin to slowly come to the surface. After many months of treatment, the tattoo will eventually be faded or erased.
The main reason people choose this option is due to the cost. When you compare the cost of using a laser tatoo removal treatment to using a topical gel or cream, you will find that laser treatment cost much more money due in part because they are required to be performed by a medical professional at a regulated site. This is much like how it is more expensive to dye your hair at a salon as compared with doing it yourself at home.
The big drawback to using a topical solution is time as this tattoo removal method often requires a bit of patience as it will take longer to fade or help erase a tattoo especially one that has hard to fade colors such as green.
After you have exfoliated the dead skin either by a pad, tool, or cream/gel, you will apply the tattoo removal gel and wait for the results.
