Laser treatment has been popular for hair removal procedures, as nearly one million laser hair removal treatments were performed in the U.S. last year, but laser tattoo removal is now becoming just as popular.
If you are considering laser tattoo removal, other tattoo removal methods, or any specific treatment care for your skin, you should do everything you can to ensure a healthy recovery.
Here are a few things you should do after your laser tattoo removal appointment.
Avoid direct contact to the treated area
Try to keep the treated area untouched for at least a few days after your tattoo removal appointment. Don’t wear any tight clothing that will come in contact with the area where the tattoo once was. Also, avoid water contact for a few days and don’t put on any make-up, perfume, or any acne treatment products on the treated area.
Limit direct exposure to the sun for a few days
If you let your treated area come into too much contact with the sun, you could seriously injure your skin. Because the skin area will be so vulnerable, you will be much more susceptible to burning. In addition to causing severe sunburn on the treated area, you will jeopardize the actual tattoo removal process.
Take care of the rest of your body
Although it’s important to take care of the specific part of your body that you had to treatment on, you should also focus on your general health to ensure a successful recovery. Make sure you exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep each night, and stick to a healthy and balanced diet following any major skin treatment.
It’s time to get rid of that tattoo that you’ve regretted for years. Don’t ruin your skin anymore than you already have, though, so be careful in the days and weeks that follow your tattoo removal appointment.
