Skin tanning after tattoo removal

Aftercare

If you’ve always carried a golden glow, then you’ll no doubt be asking, “will my skin tan after tattoo removal?"

The question of whether your skin will tan after removal, however, does depend on a number of key factors, including your aftercare regime in the days immediately following tattoo removal, and in the longer term.

Our qualified NAAMA consultants can give you a personalised treatment plan during your laser tattoo removal to ensure your skin receives the best quality care, including advice such as avoiding intense sun exposure and maintaining a healthy diet.

Your skin. Your story

Will my skin tan after laser tattoo removal?

Yes, your skin will tan again. There are a few steps you’ll need to take before and after your tattoo removal to help you on your way.

1. Choose a gentle treatment method

Our unique laser technology gives your skin the best chance possible to recover from tattoo removal treatment. Whilst other laser systems use high levels of energy which can blister and burn your skin, our LightSense technology emits ultra-low levels of energy to gently break down the ink particles in your tattoo.

This pioneering technology means you get precise, gentle and safe treatment that reduces the risk of scarring and blistering, giving your skin the best chance of safely tanning again after tattoo removal.

Our low-energy laser significantly reduces any chance of blistering, scarring or lasting damage, which means less downtime between treatments and fast tattoo removal results.

2. Take the time for proper aftercare

Your skin needs time to heal before you should consider tanning after tattoo removal. While your skin may look great after treatment, it’s worth taking the time to let it fully recover from the laser treatment.

It’s important to keep the area well-moisturised with our specialist creams, keep it away from direct sunlight and maintain a gentle skincare regime to keep the area cool, calm and hydrated.

3. Eat well

A strong immune system gives your body the best chance of breaking down the unwanted ink particles and cleansing them from your body, getting you and your skin ready to tan.

Your skin. Your story

How long do I have to wait after tattoo removal before I can tan?

You should avoid exposing the treated area to direct sunlight completely in the days immediately following your tattoo removal treatment.

If you can’t avoid the sun, you should use a moisturising SPF with UVA 4* and above protection and keep the area covered with loose clothes or medical grade dressings.

In most cases, it’s best to stay out of direct sun until the area has fully healed. Be aware that exposing your skin to sun without protection whilst it’s healing can lead to pigmentation changes.
