LASER TATTOO REMOVAL - AFTER CARE

One of the most important rules - do not put anything frozen directly on the skin! Use a bag of frozen peas or a refreezable gel pack. Keep it very cold for a while, around 15 minutes and then take it off for a few minutes. Repeat for an hour, take a break and continue until the discomfort is gone. These time frames are guidelines, be aware of how your skin is responding. Don't let the area go numb, remove the ice pack for a while until sensation returns and continue cooling if needed. Try and do this as much as you can after the treatment. This will help reduce inflammation and reduce the chances of blistering

Dry carefully and keep the area as dry as possible for the first couple of days!  

The following day, if you don't get any blisters, you can either use a good Aloe Vera gel (99% pure) for the first few days until the skin settles down. Keep your Aloe in the fridge

When the skin begins to recover, start using some RoseHip Seed Oil (never use oils on broken skin) or Bio Oil. Use the oil in small amounts and gently massage it into the area. Don't use too much. Small amounts once a day, every day

If you do get blisters- don't panic! It's a normal reaction to the treatment. Keep the area clean with an antiseptic wipe or soap and water! Avoid infections and the skin will recover. Keep them covered with a low adherent absorption patch, like Melolin or Bactigras. Nothing with too many fibres, you don't want to be picking fibres out of blisters. Some may require antiseptic gels but some can get away without any products at all. It can take up to two weeks to recover and scabs to fall off

Do not rub or scratch the treated area and do not pick any scabs that appear

Avoid sports or any other activity that could cause injury to the treated area

Avoid swimming, soaking or using hot tubs / jacuzzis / whirlpools until the skin heals

Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of hyper-pigmentation (darker pigmentation) or hypo-pigmentation (white spots)

Use sun block (SPF 50+) at all times throughout the course of your treatments

Remember about Rose Hip Oil or Bio Oil after 7 days, 2 times a day to reduce the chance of scarring, pigmentation and uneven skin tone. This is a key aftercare procedure - massaging the tattoo can increase blood flow to the area, thus allowing more ink to be re-absorbed and the tattoo to fade faster

Contact your doctor if there is any indication of infection (redness, tenderness or pus)

LASER PIGMENTATION REMOVAL - AFTER CARE

PRECAUTIONS

Erythema (redness), edema (swelling), scabbing, flaking, irritation or blistering in the treatment area will most likely occur. This may persist for several days. A white-gray discoloration of the treatment area may appear immediately following treatment and last for a few minutes to a few days. Your pigmentation may darken, lighten, fade or even appear to have no change immediately post treatment. Laser pigmentation removal works by eliminating pigment in the surface of the skin through the body’s lymphatic system. On average, it takes 4-6 weeks for your body to process the pigment. Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results

Discomfort may be relieved by taking an over the counter pain reliever or by using ice packs or cool compresses in 20-30 minute intervals if necessary

Avoid sun exposure to the treatment area throughout the course of your laser treatments. If sun exposure is necessary, keep the treatment area covered with a non-adherent dressing. Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight, and do not use UV tanning beds at all for four weeks after treatment

Once per day use a gentle soap to cleanse the treatment area and pat dry. To keep the treatment area moist, apply Aloe Vera gel or Hydrocortisone cream ( Hc45) twice per day for 7-10 days post treatment, or until the treatment area is healed

If scabbing occurs, it is very important not to pick, shave, rub, scratch or aggressively wash the area to prevent possible scarring. If blistering occurs, do not drain blisters. Allow them to dry and heal on their own. Care should be taken to prevent trauma to the treated area for the first 7-10 days following treatment

Physical exercise (sport activities) should be discontinued for 1 to 2 days. Rough physical activities (playing football) should be discontinued for 10 days post treatment

For the first few days avoid any abrasive skin products at the affected area, or subject the skin to high heat (e.g. saunas and hot showers)

Avoid activities like swimming, which exposes the skin to a higher risk of infections. 

In some cases, the skin will blister and peel off – this is normal, and means that your skin is healing and regenerating new skin. During this time, you will want to take care not to pick at the blisters as this could introduce bacteria and cause infections. Let the skin peel off by itself

 

 

PREVENTIONS

Avoid exposure to the sun. Use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to protect the skin and stop hyperpigmentation from becoming darker

Avoid picking at the skin. To prevent hyperpigmentation from forming after an injury, avoid picking at spots, scabs, and acne

Use regularly face scrub at home 

Ask your therapist about the best skincare and professional treatments
