How can a healthy lifestyle speed up your tattoo removal?
Not many people realise the connection between a healthy lifestyle and speeding up your tattoo removal.
You’ll be surprised at how a few simple lifestyle changes can speed up your tattoo removal and help your skin heal. A healthy lifestyle means a strong immune system, and that’s the key to flushing out the unwanted ink particles from your body after laser tattoo removal treatment.
At NAAMA, our unique laser technology breaks down your old ink and your body then relies on white blood cells to carry these smaller particles away. The best way to boost your white blood cells and speed up your tattoo removal process is to embrace a healthy lifestyle.
6 tips to boost your immune system
Try one or more of these lifestyle changes to experience the fastest results with your tattoo removal journey:
1. Avoid or reduce alcohol and tobacco consumption
When you indulge in a glass or two of wine or smoke a few cigarettes, your lymphatic system is working overtime to flush out the toxins. This slows down your tattoo removal treatment. To speed things along, consider giving your lymphatic system a break by reducing alcohol intake and tobacco usage.
2. Get moving
Daily exercise is a great way to get your blood pumping and flush out unwanted ink particles. This will speed up your tattoo removal treatment time and may mean less sessions are needed.
Protect your skin with a sun-safe skincare routine.
4. Stay hydrated
Never stray far from your water bottle and remember to use the hydrating aftercare creams recommended by your qualified dermatologist or consultant. A hydrated body is a healthy body, so remaining hydrated will help you with your tattoo removal journey.
5. Stay safe in the sun
By avoiding the sun before treatment, it means we’re treating your natural skin tone and not fighting against the extra pigmentation caused by the sun. Immediately after treatment, we advise you to avoid direct sunlight and use a high SPF with UVA 4* and above protection.
6. Lymphatic massage
A gentle lymphatic massage can help increase the flow of ink particles towards the organs that help flush them out of your body, which speeds up your tattoo removal. You can easily try a massage at home following the advice of a qualified professional.
