Salabrasion tattoo removal methods remove unwanted tattoos by sanding down the skin past the point of bleeding, with a salt or salt-like substance and water mixture. For many years salabrasion tattoo removal was one of the few tattoo removal methods available, but this method is rarely used today. Salabrasion tattoo removal is often considered the most painful and dangerous tattoo removal method and therefore professionals highly discourage anyone from attempting to perform this method. With current technological advancements, laser tattoo removal has become the standard due to the highly effective and relatively pain free nature of this method. Salabrasion tattoo removal is an outdated method that should no longer be a consideration with so many other reliable tattoo removal methods available.
