Here are a few things we want you to be aware of before coming in to get your tattoo removed. A quick shot for anaesthesia and a few minutes under ouurnifty q-switch laser isn’t all there is to it; there’s plenty of aftercare involved and it’s on you to look after your skin in between sessions.
For the first 24 hours after your session, keep the spot elevated and covered with cold compress to prevent inflammation. Similarly, don't get into any physical activity and avoid hot water— but do consume lots of drinking water to help heal properly!
For the next three days you’ll have to continuously apply ointments and disinfectants, which you can also obtain from us. You’ll also need to change the dressing every day.
For the next two weeks, avoid direct sunlight, hot baths, pool and salt water. If scabbing, swelling or blistering occurs on the area, apply ointment or call your appointed specialist. Tylenol will help with lessening discomfort, but other aspirins and pain management tablets may increase risk of bruising and/or bleeding.
One thing we advise our clients to do: apply sunscreen to the tattoo spot before and after sessions! This will reduce any darkening effect that might occur. Before treatment, and for the next four to six weeks after your session, avoid self-tanners, spray-tanners etc.
A daily massage for around 10 minutes for the next two weeks will help the ink to absorb.
Our specialists will walk you through more detailed, individualised after care; all you need to do is get in touch!
