Following laser tattoo removal your skin will be super sensitive so we have provided some after care tips to help you get through the healing period for the best post laser results. Here we provide a list of the things you can do for comfort and the things to avoid while your skin is recovering.
We recommend you;
Wear loose clothing
Avoid going into direct sunlight for at least 2 weeks post treatment.
Apply a sterile cold compress to the area but not directly onto the skin.
Avoid vigorous physical activity for up to 48 hours.
Don't have a hot shower, sauna or spa.
Avoid swimming for 48-72 hours.
Elevate the area where possible to reduce inflammation.
Drink lots of water and get some rest so your body can heal.
Do not pop blisters, pick or scratch the area to avoid infection
Do not shave the area until it has completely healed
Avoid taking aspirins, ibuprofen, or other blood-thinning pain killers. Avoid alcohol before or after your treatment as this can increase the risk of bruising and/or bleeding including slowing down the healing process
Don’t use active self-tanners, bronzers or get a spray tan for the next 4 to 6 weeks before and after treatment.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Always wash your hands before applying your POST LASER CARE.
No need to apply a bandage but try to avoid tight or clingy clothing rubbing the skin.
Wash the area using a mild gentle soap, preferably free from sodium laureth sulphate and sodium lauryl sulphate as these ingredients which cause products to foam, can be harsh on the skin. Avoid parabens, alcohol, gluten and other known synthetic irritants and opt for products that contain calming and soothing plant extracts.
Apply a thin layer immediately after laser treatment following showering during the healing period. Use 4-5 times a daily or as needed to keep your skin hydrated and comfortable for the 6-8 week healing period.
Apply POST LASER CARE as often as needed to maintain skin comfort and relief. Keep in mind, size matters, the bigger the area, the longer it takes your skin to completely heal.
Remember if you notice any signs of excessive redness, swelling or discharge contact your treating studio or a healthcare professional.
