Aftercare is very important and we will only suggest using the Light Soothe laser cream which has been clinically proven to assist in the healing process of any laser treatment. We will not advise any other cream/lotion should be applied.
Skin will be raised, red, slightly sting and can blister for up to a week.
Apply cold packs to the area to assist with the aftercare.
8-12 weeks is recommended between each treatment.
Amount of treatments needed depends on age, colour, size of tattoo and type of ink along with your lifestyle eg alcohol intake and smoking.
The treatment itself is quick, a small tattoo can take a couple of minutes to treat.
The skin should not be in heat for 24 hours after treatment, this includes saunas, steam rooms, hot baths or showers and avoid intense activity where the skin could become hot and sweat.
If you reacted to having the tattoo you may find the same reaction happens upon removing your tattoo. This is your body's way of removing the ink particles. Some people can feel flu'y and some find the area can be raised for a while.
Laser removal does not cause scarring so if scars are seen in the area during fading this is probably down to the tattoo artist who applied it.
