What You Need to Do Next
Laser tattoo removal doesn’t just stop when you finish the session – the right aftercare really counts too!
So, you’re going to go ahead and have your tattoo removed with laser treatment. It’s one of the most common cosmetic procedures being performed in the UK today, and it’s incredibly safe and straightforward. What a lot of people don’t know, however, is what to expect afterwards. Well, here’s everything that you need to know!
Soreness and swelling
After your tattoo removal session, you can expect some soreness and redness. Some people say that it’s a little similar to sunburn. You may also notice some swelling too. If you do, there’s no need to panic. Just use a cool compress to bring down any swelling and redness and keep an eye on the affected area. Of course, if you’re very worried seek medical attention – but in most cases it does clear up on its own with a little TLC.
Scabs and blisters
Tattoo removal can be a little harsh on your skin, and that can result in some scabbing and blistering. If you do experience one or both of these, the most important thing to do is to not pick them. Apply something like Vaseline to the affected area and give it the time it needs to heal. Picking at scabs and popping blisters will only lead to scarring, and that’s not what you want after time and investment!
One thing that you should be aware of is that your skin will be much more sensitive to the sun in the days and weeks following your laser tattoo removal. If you’re a sun worshipper, then it’s time to stay in the shade and cover up. You’ll be much more susceptible to burning, which could complicate the healing process. So stay sun safe for the best possible results. You should continue to do so afterwards anyway!
It’s a good idea to rest
Some activities may be off limits after you have gone through laser tattoo removal treatment. Strenuous activities aren’t recommended for a few days, so if you play sports it’s time for some downtime! If your job is very physically taxing, then it may be a good idea to have your treatment just before a weekend or take a few days off, so that you can really just relax and recover with no added pressures.
