For a complete removal of your permanent tattoo you need at least 5 to 10 treatment while it may be a bit painful but if you take care of your skin properly then there are higher chances of removing your tattoo earlier. Remember that while the treatment a surgeon does his part of the job but you also need to take care of the things so that you can heal your skin properly for better results.
After each treatment, your skin requires some time for healing while you should follow a healthy routine in life. With a better healthy body, you have a better chance of removing your tattoo.
Here are some of the simple steps which you need to take between sessions of laser treatment.
No need to panic
The effect of laser treatment of tattoo removal may work differently on the different person. So even after 3 or 4 treatment, you did not find a major change in the fading of your tattoo, you do not need to panic.
There are certain cases where people need to take 10 or 12 treatment to completely remove their tattoo permanently and some colored tattoo can take some time for complete removal as all the colors could not be able to absorb the different wavelength of the laser light. While after some more treatment you can be able to see the result by yourself.
Apply icing to skin
After each treatment session, your skin may feel a bit hurt while you need to take proper care of your skin to heal it properly. You can apply icing to the tattooed area after the treatment process while taking 20 minutes of an interval between each icing application. This process soothes your skin and makes the treated area of skin heal faster.
Keep the tattooed area clean
It may be a bit difficult to wash the area of skin after the treatment while the direct contact of high stream water can cause you more pain. You need to be careful while washing your tattooed part of the skin and apply warm water with soap gently on the skin surface.
Do not shave that area
After a treatment, it might take 3 to 4 weeks for the complete healing of your treated skin while in this period you should avoid putting extra pressure on the skin which can cause you injury. Usage of a razor blade in that area can cause damage to the skin while you should avoid it before total healing.
Direct contact with sunlight can cause tanning of skin which makes your skin extra sensitive with the laser light while you should avoid sunlight in the treated area. You can use sun protection cream on the treated area.
The most important thing is you need to think positive, if you do any work without a positive frame of mindset then the chances of becoming success become lower while you should try to be happier and follow a healthy lifestyle which also helps you in removing your tattoo easily.
