If you have a tattoo you’d like to remove, you may have heard of various DIY techniques that claim to remove tattoos without having to visit a specialist. Many of these techniques are unsafe, ineffective, or not evidence-based.
However, tattoo removal with INTRACel is a much better option. Its dual-pronged approach that combines microneedling and RF energy is effective in dissolving tattoo ink, leading to the gradual fading of your unwanted tattoo.
Some of the DIY tattoo removal techniques you may have seen include:
- Chemical peels – While chemical peels do rejuvenate your skin to a certain extent, by removing the top layer and allowing it to grow back fresh and new, they are not effective on tattoos. This is because tattoo ink sinks deep into the dermis, much deeper than a typical chemical peel can reach. You might be dismayed that after all that effort, your tattoo looks the same as before.
- Commercial removal creams – Tattoo removal creams are not FDA-approved and generally ineffective. They contain harsh chemicals and acids that purport to dissolve tattoo ink, but are more likely to damage your skin. These creams are best avoided.
- Homemade techniques – Some techniques popularized on social media, such as the use of salt and lemon juice, are painful and highly damaging to your skin. They will likely leave a scar, and the wound is at risk of becoming infected.
If you need to get a tattoo removed, it’s best to get the job done right by a professional. INTRACel is effective at removing tattoos because its RF energy penetrates deep into the dermis, breaking apart molecules of tattoo ink through the consistent application of heat. Next, the microneedling stimulates collagen production in the skin, allowing it to heal with a smooth, supple texture.
Successful tattoo removal depends on many factors, such as the color of ink used and the tattoo’s placement on the body. Though we cannot guarantee complete removal, INTRACel does demonstrably fade tattoos while actually rejuvenating your skin and treating it gently, unlike the harsh chemical methods described above.

So I’ve been on hormone therapy for a few years and but hated having to constantly inject myself every 2 weeks and the hormone fluctuations were rough sometimes. I decided to look around from pellet therapy and found Dr. Mack provided what I was looking for. When I finally got a chance to meet her, she was so sweet and really attentive, not only that, she noticed my hypothyroidism from my blood test (something I totally forgot to ask her about when I was there!)
I started my journey to better health in January of 2015. Since then I’ve lost 60 pounds and feel great. As well, I’ve started working with their functional medicine doctor, Dr. Mack. She is compassionate, kind and oh so knowledgeable. Every step of the way I’ve been monitored physically and nutritionally… I cannot express it enough that if you are looking for a journey to better health this is definitely the place you should start!
