Customer Question
Hi i was wondering...

Hi i was wondering if you new whether it was safe to use TCA peel to remove tattoos, most reviews are good but then theirs some cons so i don't know what to believe and don't have money for laser.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I haven't seen a doctor about this, i'm not taking any medications only Sertraline which im pretty sure dosn't counteract with TCA.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Im not allergic to anything i take sertralien daily.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, but under the tattoo i have some scars, just thin nicks from previous harm,.But there healed now.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
