HOW TO HEAL AFTER
LASER TATTOO REMOVAL

DAYS ONE TO SEVEN

Redness and blistering is normal- do not be alarmed.

 

Wash with Tattoo Lovers Care Foam Soap (or a mild unscented soap) once a day and then apply a thin layer of Tattoo Lovers Care Salve (or another unscented tattoo moisturizer)

  • Avoid high pressure water on wounds, and do not submerge in bodies of water

  • Take Tylenol for pain management (not ibuprofen to prevent bruising)

  • You can use a cold compress for 10 minutes to reduce inflammation 

If you develop a fever, the wound is hot and very red, there is a yellow gold crust or you begin to develop symptoms like a flu (cold sweats, chills, nausea) - contact a doctor immediately

DAYS FIVE +

Wash with Tattoo Lovers Care Foam Soap (or a mild unscented soap) once a day and then apply a thin layer of Tattoo Lovers Care Salve (or another unscented tattoo moisturizer)

  • Do not pick scabs or blisters

  • Avoid high pressure water on wounds, and do not submerge in bodies of water

  • Apply Tattoo Lovers Care Cream (or another mild unscented moisturizer) once a day as needed to prevent dryness and speed up complete healing 

  • Apply SPF 30+ Sunscreen for at least 30 days when exposing the wound to sun

  • Healing is usually complete in about 4 to 8 weeks, depending on the patient’s aftercare, immune system, and level of treatment.

  • Scarring, which can be hypertrophic or even keloid, can occur but is very rare. Loss of skin pigment (or excess gain of skin pigment) in the treated area may occur, but is temporary in almost all cases.
