Question Wrecking Balm- any one use it?

I am considering my options for tattoo removal on a small tattoo on my wrist I have. I am starting my masters for nurse practitioner and do not want any visible tattoos. I heard of wrecking balm but I want to know if this worked for anyone?

I heard from tattoo artist wrecking balm doesn't work, I know someone who removed an all black tattoo with high volume TCA peel, I told my PS about this, and asked if I could try it. He said "No way, you are burning flesh from your skin" . He told me today's lasers are the best and safest options. I want some ink removed, esp the dreaded ex hubby initials.

TCA does work. I have used it on my 4 yr old tattoo and it's almost gone. I only use 30% though because it is a really strong acid. I agree though, don't use creams, they are useless.

Could you please inform me of what TCA is? Is it just a regular chemical peel or is it something different? I would like to find out more information on cost and whatnot. Thanks in advance.

I just got some of my tattoos lasered yesterday and it was bearable, felt like being flicked really hard with an elastic band but afterwards it's been agony! On my way home it was BURNING like the fiery flames of hell! Lol
I've been too scared too look at it today, I have some blood on the bandage and I don't think I could handle looking at it if it has big blisters etc

I must add mine is 2 BIG tattoos on my back, I think a small one on your wrist would be fine
