What personal restrictions during treatment?
Multiple treatments will be required to remove your tattoo. During your course of treatments it is essential that you avoid direct sun exposure on the treated tattoo and for 1 month after your final treatment. This includes sunbathing and tanning salons. In addition when the treated area is not covered by clothing you must protect the skin with sunscreen SPF50.
For your safety we cannot treat tanned skin (this includes the use of self-tanning products). Should you turn up to a laser appointment with tanned skin we will not treat you for safety reasons, but you will still be charged.
What risks are associated with treatment?
What can you expect after each treatment?
- Immediately afterwards there should be a slight frosting on your skin. Redness, swelling and pinpoint bleeding may also occur.
- A dressing will be applied which should not be removed or allowed to become wet for 24 hours.
- Blisters, crusts or scabs may develop within 8-72 hours and can last for 1-2 weeks. Blister fluid can look dark or coloured, but this is due to the tattoo pigment and is nothing to worry about.
- Do not pick blisters or scabs as this can result in infection and scarring. Any blistered area should be gently cleansed twice daily with warm water and mild soap and then patted dry. Vaseline can be applied to the area to prevent the risk of infection.
- Avoid contact sports which risk causing injury to the treated area.
- Avoid baths, hot tubs, swimming pools until any blisters or scabs have completely healed. When having a shower avoid high pressure water hitting the treated area.
- After 7 days (provided your skin is blister free) you can use Bio-Oil twice daily to reduce the risk of scarring.
- Avoid direct sun exposure to the treatment area to reduce the chance of hyper-pigmentation (dark spots) and always use sun block SPF 50 throughout the course of your treatment.
