5 tips to speed up your tattoo removal journey
The speed of your tattoo removal process is down to a number of factors, including the size and colour of your tattoo, the health of your immune system, your daily habits, and even how much water you drink.
Healing after tattoo removal takes a different amount of time for each individual and your body art. However, there are a few things you can do for a rapid removal with optimal results.
How can I speed up tattoo removal?
Wondering what helps speed up tattoo removal? The truth is, there’s no quick fix. This is important to remember if you’re considering invasive actions such as harmful skin creams or other corrosive treatments.
Whilst we understand that in some circumstances you might wish to remove your body art as soon as possible, the overall priority should be ensuring that your skin is well looked after during the process, something that we take incredibly seriously here at NAAMA.
Every person and every tattoo is unique, so everyone reacts differently to treatment.
5 tips for a quick tattoo removal process
These five tips will help you heal faster and achieve an optimal tattoo removal result.
1. Choose laser removal
Laser treatment is the safest, most efficient, and quickest tattoo removal method. At NAAMA, we use our very own, best-in-class LightSense technology. Due to the fast speed at which our laser pulsates, there is less downtime needed between each session, meaning you can get your tattoo removed more quickly than other types of treatment.
2. Use aftercare creams
Appropriate aftercare creams will help the skin heal faster and keep it hydrated without the risk of infection. At NAAMA, we have a dedicated aftercare treatment range to help speed up healing after tattoo removal and provide optimal results. Additionally, using Vaseline on the area will help to keep it moisturised and protected.
3. Avoid sun exposure and humid or hot environments
Exposing the treatment area to sunlight as it will put more pressure on your skin and potentially damage it. Similarly, activities such as swimming, steam rooms, and saunas should also be avoided due to the risk of infection. You should be fine after your skin has had a chance to heal, but it’s essential that you give it some time first.
4. Live a healthy lifestyle - sleep, water, smoking, drinking
A huge part of healing during the tattoo removal process depends on your immune system and how well it is able to break down the tattoo ink.
After being shattered by the laser, those ink particles must be processed by your body and ultimately flushed out. In order for your body to do this quickly and effectively, you should look after it. That means maintaining a good diet and exercise regime, drinking plenty of water, getting enough sleep, and avoiding cigarettes and alcohol.
5. Maintain a regular removal schedule
It’s incredibly rare for a tattoo to disappear after just one session and this is why it’s important to plan your removal schedule with one of our expert dermatologists, who each have years of experience in laser tattoo removal.
Our consultants will be able to advise you on how many treatments you are likely to need, which will give you a good idea of how long the entire removal will take.
Alternatively, you can take our tattoo removal quiz to get a better idea of the process and whether or not it’s right for you.
