Aftercare for Laser Tattoo Removal

We get lots of questions about tattoo removal aftercare. Here are some of the top questions we receive:

How long does it take to recover from laser tattoo removal?

Every person is different. For some people, it takes a week; for others, it can take up to two weeks to recover. In general, the more treatments you receive, the quicker you will recover. Recovery can also be sped up if you follow all aftercare precautions.

Can I take a shower after laser tattoo removal?

It’s recommended you wait at least 2 hours before showering after laser tattoo removal treatments. Avoid water from a high pressure shower head hitting the affected area directly. Avoid soaking the area. So no baths, hot tubs, or swimming until the area is healed.

Which cream to use after laser tattoo removal?

There are a number of creams that can be used post tattoo removal treatment. Some of the most common include Savlon, Bepanthen and papaw cream. Speak with your tattoo removal technician about aftercare cream options.

How long should I leave the dressing on my tattoo?

It’s recommended that you bandage the treated area for the first 3 days after treatment. Keep the area clean and sterile. Change the bandage regularly.

Can you work out after laser tattoo removal?

Yes, going to the gym and exercise in general is fine, as long as you don’t irritate the tattoo removal area.

How long do tattoo removal blisters last?

Blistering is a common side effect of laser tattoo removal. Blisters typically appear within the first few hours of treatment and can last a week or more. They will heal on their own with proper aftercare.

What are the laser tattoo removal infection signs?

While blistering and scabbing is normal, infection is not. If you notice discharge, additional redness and pain, the area may have become infected. Contact your doctor if you suspect the area is infected.
