After getting a laser tattoo removal treatment, you may see some marks and minimal discomfort in the areas where the laser is applied. For fast recovery of the affected body part, here are some tips to speed recovery:

  • Keep the area clean and dry to avoid infection. Change dressing daily.
  • Aquaphor and Neosporin can be applied in the site to provide just enough moisture to the skin while it provides extra protection from infection.
  • Apply cold compress to site to reduce swelling and redness.
  • Boost your immune system to help speed up the tattoo removal process. Eat nutritious food particularly high in Vitamin C and do regular exercise.
  • Avoid scratching for this can cause scarring.
  • As much as possible, avoid stress. The success of laser tattoo removal procedure greatly relies on the patient's immune system. After the laser disintegrates large pigments of tattoo ink, the immune system flushes the smaller particles out of the body since they consider them as foreign matter. Stress can weaken your immune system and there's a great possibility that the tattoo won't totally fade out when the body defenses are weak.

Non-Laser Tattoo Removal Treatments to Avoid

Laser tattoo removal is currently the most effective and safest way to eliminate tattoos. However, due to its cost and some wrong notion about the procedure, many are having doubts about the treatment. Instead they go for other methods which can be unsafe and even cause greater damage to your skin.

Here are list of methods that should be avoided:

Topical Cream

Unknown creams and lotions which claim effective in removing tattoos may actually have dangerous properties that can irritate or burn your skin. You might end up getting a scar from it.

Acids / Cryotherapy

Some people believe that the way to remove tattoo inks is by killing layers of skin. Acids and cryotherapy are commonly used to destroy skin layers. These are dangerous methods as it often results in scarring, infection, or even more severe problems. Not only they are dangerous, they are very painful as well.

Dermabrasion / Surgical Excision

Dermabrasion is a process of rubbing the skin using a wire brush or sand paper to scrape out the tattoo off your skin. This is rather painful process and scarring is very likely to happen. Surgical excision on the other hand, is done by cutting out the tattooed skin and stitch it thereafter. The body cannot naturally heal the open wound and this will always result an unpleasant scarring.

Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment is still by far the safest and painless invasive method to get rid of tattoos. It can clear out various tattoo inks without compromising the integrity of the rest of your skin. Your tattoos are completely removed without any signs of scarring or marks.
