Treating your skin properly between tattoo removal treatments is vital in maintaining healthy skin and allows for the procedure to continue the process of breaking up the particles.
Tattoo artists layer the ink. Lasers cannot safely break down all the layers in one treatment. Your body needs time to flush out the ink. The laser light penetrates heat into the skin, causing the tattoo ink to burst and shatter.
Time between treatments is necessary for your health. Skin needs time to heal. After laser treatments, you may see some redness, swelling, and a little blistering. Apply Aquaphor for 3 to 5 days after each treatment.
Stay hydrated. A healthy immune system is made possible by the removal of toxins from the body and the regeneration of blood cells.
Stay out of the sun.
Wear clothing that covers the area. Limit smoking as your immune system has to work harder.
Be sure to keep all of your appointments to achieve the best results. Each treatment removes more ink.
