Tattoo Removal: Essential Care After the Removal Process

After a laser tattoo removal process, it is crucial to follow specific care to ensure adequate skin recovery. Here are some general guidelines:

  1. Sun protection: Avoid direct sun exposure to the treated area. Use broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (SPF) to prevent further damage to sensitized skin.

  2. Avoid scratching or rubbing: Even if the area is itchy, avoid scratching or rubbing to avoid irritating the skin. This also reduces the risk of infections.

  3. Hydration: Keep your skin well hydrated using a cream or lotion recommended by your laser tattoo removal professional. This will aid recovery and minimize skin dryness. Some of the products we have available in our store.

  4. Avoid intense activities: Avoid vigorous physical exercise and activities that may cause excessive sweating in the treated area, as this may increase irritation.

  5. Light clothing: Choose light, loose-fitting clothing to avoid unnecessary friction on the treated area.

  6. Avoid swimming pools and bathtubs: Avoid submerging the treated area in stagnant water, such as in swimming pools or bathtubs, to reduce the risk of infection.

  7. Follow the professional's instructions: Your laser tattoo removal specialist will provide specific instructions. Follow them strictly to ensure a successful recovery.

  8. Follow-up: Schedule follow-up appointments as recommended by the professional. This will allow them to assess progress and adjust treatment if necessary.

If symptoms such as excessive swelling, persistent redness, severe pain or signs of infection appear, contact the studio immediately. These guidelines are general and may vary depending on the type and individual characteristics of each person. Consulting the professional responsible for the procedure is essential to obtain personalized guidance.
