What Happens After Tattoo Removal Treatment
The laser tattoo removal process, although non-invasive has a noticeable effect on the skin around
the treatment area. During the first couple of hours after the treatment you may observe the
Slight inflammation or swelling around the tattoo area
Skin discolouration showing a pale or white hue
The tattoo will likely be a little sore to the touch and appear red like sunburn
You may also experience some pain for which you may require some pain medication. Applying an
antibiotic cream will also help to speed up healing and prevents scars from forming. The antibiotic
property will also help to prevent infection.
Laser Tattoo Removal After-care
Just as you receive aftercare instruction from the tattoo parlour, there are aftercare instructions
you need to follow after laser removal treatment. Here is what you need to remember:
Cleanse the tattoo area gently with warm water
Apply the antibiotic cream
Be on the lookout for continued swelling and redness which could be a symptom of
infection, call your doctor immediately if you suspect an infection
Avoid touching and picking at the tattoo treatment area
During the next couple of days and weeks you should expect the area to remain somewhat
reddened. Flaking may begin to occur in a week or two with scabs forming, do not pick at these as
its the skin going through its healing and renewal process.
Lightening or darkening of the skin may occur, depending on the size of the tattoo treated and the
area affected. Ensuring the area is not exposed to the sun until completely healed is paramount as it
prevents further skin damage. Over a period of between 4 and 6 weeks you can expect the tattoo to
gradually fade. Looking at before and after pictures is usually the best way to appreciate the extent
of fading. Several treatments may be required and that is why it is recommended to wait 4-6 weeks
between treatments so you give your body the chance of getting rid of the ink.
