Laser Removal Aftercare

 

1: Skin should be treated gently for 4-5 days after treatment, avoid excessive rubbing, ensure you apply your antiseptic cream 3 times per day, this will allow your skin to recover & prevent infection.

After around a week, your skin will become itchy (this is completely normal) apply your hydra-gel to soothe. The tattoo pigment will begin to fade about two to three weeks after the treatment.

 

2: Sun Screen should be used on exposed areas after treatment (even if it is not a sunny day). Also avoid sunbeds and self-tanning lotions for the treatment period.

 

3: Make-up can be used immediately after treatment as long as the skin is not broken

 

4: Avoid any heat treatments; ie. sauna, steam etc. also avoid exercise (as this heats up the body) for 48 hours after the treatments
