Caring for tattooed skin
More and more patients are asking their dermatologists for skin care tips that will keep a tattoo looking its best. Here are some tips from dermatologists for keeping tattooed skin healthy and vibrant.
If you no longer want a tattoo, talk with a dermatologist. Many tattoo removal kits are available online, but the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns that it does not regulate these products. Some kits contain acid, which has caused permanent skin injuries. By talking with a dermatologist, you can find out what options are available for removing your unwanted tattoo.
