Tattoo Removal After Care

What to expect after your laser tattoo removal treatment

The first 24-48 hours you will experience a lot of swelling in the treated area. To help this discomfort we would recommend that you put an ice pack on the treated area to get as much as the heat out of the skin as possible. This will help reduce the risk of blisters.

Red marks or bruising, this is totally normal and you skin surrounding the tattoo will return to normal with in a week or two.

When your skin is healing you will experience slight to extreme itchiness. We recommend to apply a thin layer of Yayo chill as often as needed during this process and take a antihistamine if needed.

Tattoo removal stages

Blisters may appear, if they do, DO NOT POP, PICK OR SCRATCH THEM. Let them heal and go down in their own time. If the blister is large keep it covered in a paraffin-based gauze and keep it clean. Jelonet is a good brand and can purchase from eBay.

Message me with a photo of your blisters if you do get them please!

How to increase your fading process

  • Apply Yayo chill 2/3 times a day. Massage in the skin until scabbing appears. You may not experience scabbing at all.
  • Massage your skin to help break down the particles.
  • Drink at least 2 pints of water a day, this will help flush through your unwanted ink.
  • Exercise after 48 hrs as it increases your blood flow around the body picking up your ink particles.
  • Wear a spf of 30 or higher and keep the skin out of reach of sunlight.

What NOT to do

  • Bath, gym, sauna, steam room, swimming for the first 48hrs.
  • Pop your blisters.
  • Do not apply makeup/ lotion or perfume in the treated area for 72 hours
  • Pick or scratch your tattoo when healing this could lead to scarring.
  • Expose your skin to the sun. If you do it may cause blisters and slow down/stop your tattoo removal process.

Happy Fading!
