Useful Aftercare Tips for Laser Tattoo Removal

The best way to get rid of that unwanted ink is to get a laser tattoo removal. However, make sure that after every session, you prioritise caring for your skin to speed up the healing process. Aftercare is essential to avoid irritation, infection, and other side effects like hyperpigmentation.

These aftercare suggestions address the timeframe and aftercare immediately following the laser treatment. This is an important period for the skin since it requires quick action, an immediate immune system boost, as well as overall and appropriate care.

If you don’t have any idea of how to do an aftercare for your tattoo removal, then read on for our usful tips. This aftercare practice is appropriate for the delicate, treated skin to ensure that it recovers quickly and effectively, avoiding any possible inflammation or scarring.

Be Extra Careful Especially for the First Two Days After Tattoo Removal

The first thing to do after every tattoo removal session is to wear loose, clean clothing to prevent anything catching or rubbing your skin. It is also important to not use wool fabrics because they are fluffy and itchy. Aside from that, wear a dressing or bandage for the next 24 hours or as advised by your practitioner to prevent infection.

Always Keep the Area Clean

Hygiene is crucial after laser tattoo removal since your skin is more susceptible to infection. Throughout the healing process, it is advised that you thoroughly and frequently wash the entire treated area with warm, clean water. Your practitioner might also advise using an antibacterial solution and you should avoid exposing the skin to any irritants such as perfumes and soaps.

Don’t Remove Any Scabs

If scabs or crusty skin develops over the treated area, resist the urge to pick them. This will slow down the skin healing process and increase the risk of infection and other problems. After tattoo removal, blisters and scabbing are common, but if you suffer any unusual discomfort or bleeding, you should see your doctor immediately.

Protect Your Blisters

If you have blisters, it means that your skin is healing. However, you need to be extra careful and refrain from soaking the area completely. Avoid hot tubs and baths, and don't spend hours in the shower! It’s also common for your blisters are bursting, but you shouldn’t put too much pressure on your blisters because doing so will not speed up the healing process and will only make them itch worse. You may apply an ice pack, a soothing cream, or aloe vera gel to the sore spot to ease the pain.

Sun Exposure is Not Advisable

Your skin will be more sensitive to sunlight than usual in the days and weeks after treatment, so keep the area covered up with clothing or use a high SPF sunscreen to prevent sunburn and discomfort.

Laser Tattoo Removal is a simple outpatient procedure. To achieve the best possible result, you must pay attention to the aftercare recommendations. Carefully follow the aftercare tips above to reduce the possibility of unwanted side effects.
