TATTOO REMOVAL AFTERCARE

IT IS CRUCIAL TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS AFTER YOUR REMOVAL PROCEDURE:

DAY ONE (DAY OF THE TREATMENT):

  • The treated area will be coated with ointment before you leave the studio. If the product is absorbed or accidentally removed, you should reapply it using a clean cotton swab.

  • Thirty minutes after the procedure, rinse the area with water to remove lymph from the skin and then reapply the ointment. Use a cotton swab to apply a thin layer of ointment to coat the fresh lines. You do not need to use a lot of product.

 

FOR THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS AFTER YOUR REMOVAL PROCEDURE, IT IS IMPORTANT TO FOLLOW THESE CARE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Wash your face as you normally would.

  • Apply the ointment (or Aquaphor healing ointment or fresh aloe vera gel from the plant if you run out of the ointment provided by our studio) to your eyebrows a minimum of 3-4 times per day.

  • Use a cotton swab to apply the ointment and avoid any aggressive movements or manipulation of the skin.

  • Be sure to clean your hands thoroughly before touching the treated area.

IT IS ESSENTIAL TO AVOID THE FOLLOWING ACTIVITIES &

SUBSTANCES DURING THE FIRST NINE DAYS AFTER YOUR REMOVAL PROCEDURE:

  • Using any decorative or hygienic cosmetics on the affected area for 10-14 days after the procedure

  • Participating in sports or other physically demanding activities

  • Taking hot baths (use lukewarm water instead)

  • Swimming

  • Gardening

  • Coming into contact with animals

  • Using any laser or chemical peel treatments or products containing glycolic acid or Retin-A on your face

  • Picking, peeling, or scratching the scab - allow it to fall off naturally

  • Being in high dust environments (such as while cleaning a garage or basement)

  • Visiting a solarium, sunbathing, or going to a pool for 2 weeks after the procedure

  • Receiving any facial or body treatments for 3-6 weeks after the procedure

  • Exercising or receiving massages on the face or body for 7 days after the procedure

  • Touching the treated area, except when rinsing or cleansing it or applying aftercare treatment with a clean Q-Tip.

 

During the first seven days after your tattoo removal procedure, it is normal for some itching and flaking to occur. However, following the care instructions outlined above can help reduce these symptoms. It takes approximately six weeks for deeper wounds to fully heal.

Please note that tattoo removal typically requires multiple sessions to fully remove the old pigment. During this time, you may choose to undergo another procedure instead of the tattoo removal.

If you experience any signs or symptoms of infection, such as redness, swelling, tenderness at the procedure site, red streaks radiating from the site towards the heart, a fever, or pus drainage from the site, it is important to seek medical care immediately.

It is important to protect the treated area from sun exposure, the use of retinoids, peels, laser treatments, and other powerful exfoliants, as they may cause the pigmentation to fade prematurely. If you do not follow the aftercare instructions provided, you may be at risk of infection, pigment loss, or discoloration. It is crucial to follow these instructions carefully to ensure the best results.
