Tattoo Removal Creams Fly Off Shelves: See Comparison to Laser Removal

Updated: Friday, May 2 2014, 07:28 PM EDT

The tattoo removal industry is booming and new products are hitting store shelves, claiming to "fade out" ink without the use of painful lasers.

One product flying off the shelves is called "Wrecking Balm." The product consists of several creams and a vibrating device to "sand" the skin. The box does not say how long to use the product, only that "results may vary." Tueller says the electric sander broke after only about a month.

36-year-old father Bob Tueller started regretting the baseball tattoo he got in high school when his kids started asking when they could get their own.

Tueller tested the product on one half of his tattoo for a few months, three times per week. He then went to a laser removal location and received three laser treatments on the other half of the tattoo.

Watch the video to see the results, side by side, of the cream and laser.
