Simple lifestyle modifications can expedite the course of treatment. Boosting your immune system is a way of aiding the body to be efficient in fading unwanted tattoo ink. The following tips will help to eradicate unwanted ink in the shortest possible time.

Avoid Sun Exposure - It's unsafe to treat sun-burned skin. Make sure to use sunscreen, bandages, or clothing to cover the treated area.

Quit Smoking - Regular smoking can reduce the effectiveness of the laser tattoo removal treatment. This is because your immune system is now doing two tasks at the same time. Removing smoke toxins and clearing off your tattoo. If it’s impossible to abruptly stop smoking, you should at least minimize your smoking.

Exercise - Working out will increase blood flow to the treated area. This will promote healing as well aid in breaking down ink particles in your skin.

It's important for anyone seeking tattoo removal services to know what to expect after laser tattoo removal treatments. They must be informed prior to the procedure because there really is much to consider about the post-removal state.

Immediate Post-Treatment

Right after the laser treatment, you will immediately notice a white frosting on the exact spot where the laser has made direct contact with the ink. You can observe a significant frosting on blank inks than other colored tinge. Since the skin is slightly irritated during the procedure, swelling in the area is expected even if the frosting is minimal.

A Number of Sessions Might Be Required

The number of sessions differs from person to person. In fact, the ability of the person to clear his/her tattoo greatly depends on his immune system. The variables that should be considered is not limited to amount, type of ink and the site of the tattoo but also his current health and medical history.


Unlike any other tattoo removal options, Dream Tattoo Removal MD's Cutera Enlighten Laser offers painless treatment. If there's any discomfort its really quite minimal. This is because there is very little heat that is produced by the laser. It is its speed that's making it effective in clearing the stain. Due to this fact, only very minor tissue damage occurs.


Blisters are rare but on some cases where it occurs, this only indicates that the body is sending the lymphatic fluids to the affected site. Also blisters are more prevalent on colored tattoos as they tend to induce allergic reactions more than black inks when treated. If blisters occur, keep area sterile and avoid popping it for it is prone to infection.


Bleeding is rare as well since laser tattoo removal system can send more energy into the tattoo with less trauma. On rare cases where bleeding occurs, this is due to clinician using intensive settings on stubborn inks.


Scarring is due to tissue traumatized due to aggressive treatment. The healing process is inconsistent and the tissue tends to form a hardened collagen on the surface of the skin. Since skin produces very little or next to no heat so the chance of scarring is very low.
