Tattoo removal post-care

Congratulations on completing your tattoo removal! Now that you’ve taken the courageous step to say goodbye to unwanted ink, it’s time to embrace the final phase: post-care.

Proper aftercare is crucial in ensuring a smooth recovery and achieving the best possible results. Have a look at the below essential steps and tips to optimise the healing process and reveal your skin’s renewed beauty after tattoo removal.

Aloe Vera can be used twice daily or more to help cool the skin initially and aid in the healing process.
Savlon can be used to keep the area clean and free of infection.
If required, you can utilise a cold flannel or cool pack at home to help with any swelling or discomfort.
Antihistamines can be taken at the recommended amount to assist with any potential itching if required.
Avoid swimming, hot tubs etc as all these activities can increase the chance of infection.
Please wear sunblock with an SPF of 50 or higher for 3 months after treatment.
No sun exposure for at least 1 month post treatment to reduce any adverse affects.
Do not rub/scratch/create friction as this could increase the chance of blistering and thus the risk of infection.
Do not pick any scabs or burst any blisters, thus reducing the risk of infections.
Do not excessively soak your skin or leave it perpetually wet until it has healed.
Do not wear makeup, cream or medication on the area unless recommended by your laser specialist or a doctor for 48 hours.
Avoid high pressure water, only gently cleanse with mild or non perfumed soap, then pat dry.

Please note that if after tattoo removal you have any extreme reactions, you should contact 999 or go to the emergency department.
