7 Ways To Get The Most Out Of Laser Tattoo Removal

7 Ways To Get The Most Out Of Laser Tattoo Removal

So, you’ve booked your first session of tattoo removal. You’re all ready to go. The date is in the diary and you’re excited to finally fade or remove your ink. 


Now what can you do to prepare your body?

Your immune system plays a massive part in removing ink. It’s a vital system that allows the body to keep healthy by attacking germs and toxins. Here’s what you can do to make sure it’s in good shape before you begin your laser tattoo removal journey.

Water bottle

Drink water

95% of the fluid in the lymph system (the part that clears toxins away) is water, so it’s important you stay hydrated. The recommendation for good health is to drink at least 2 litres of water each day.


Get moving

Contraction of the muscles and joints propel fluid through the lymph system, making it work better, so get in some exercise.

 Foot massage

Try a massage

Lymphatic massage targets your lymphatic system, making it work harder and better. Plus, it’s a nice treat after all that exercise.

Protect your skin when in the sun

Simply, protect your skin with a sun-safe skincare routine and use a moisturising sunscreen with high SPF and UVA 4* or above protection when exposing your  treatment area to direct sunlight.
Exposing your skin to direct sunlight without protection whilst it is still recovering can lead to changes in pigmentation.

Avoid smoking

Avoid smoking, limit alcohol

Any toxins reduce the burden on your system, leaving more capacity to clear your ink.


Eat well

Think leafy greens, nuts, fatty fish, whole grains and dark chocolate. Processed, unhealthy foods just add to the load on your system.


Try not to stress

We know, it’s easier said than done. Stress causes lymph congestion, which makes the whole system less efficient; so try to keep calm, get some sleep - and laughing always helps.
