Aftercare at NAAMA

How to ensure optimal results

Post-treatment care is an essential yet often underestimated part of tattoo removal. Thankfully NAAMA’s laser technology is skin-safe so there’s no downtime, making aftercare simple. Here’s our advice for aiding the healing process and achieving smooth, healthy skin.

Treatment dressing

Treatment dressing

We apply medical grade dressings that stay on for 72 hours to protect and hydrate the skin.

Sun protection

Sun protection

In the days immediately following treatment, do not expose the treated area to direct, intense sunlight. Use a moisturising, high SPF with UVA 4* and above protection.

Aftercare creams

Aftercare creams

Keep the area well moisturised by applying NAAMA’s aftercare creams, which have been specifically formulated to aid the removal process. Alternatively use Vaseline.

Gentle skin routine

Gentle skin routine

Skin should remain cool and calm in the days following treatment, so avoid intense exercise, steam rooms, saunas and hot baths. Minimise skin irritation by not exfoliating, waxing, tweezing or threading.

NAAMA skincare

Try our aftercare creams to protect, soothe and aid the skin’s natural regeneration process.

Post treatment massage

Our expert consultant explains how lymphatic massage can help your immune system to flush ink particles away after treatments.

Frequently asked questions

What tattoo aftercare do you suggest?
We design bespoke aftercare plans for each customer, including regular check-ins with your NAAMA Consultant, topical creams and gels to revive skin and gel-based wraps to hydrate and protect the treated area.
Can I touch my tattoo between treatments?
Yes, although we advise that you take great care in your aftercare regime.
Who do I contact if something doesn’t seem right?
Please call NAAMA straight away to talk to a consultant.
Does my immune system influence my removal?
Yes, the health of you and your body impact the removal process.
Can I get a new tattoo after removal?
Absolutely. Because NAAMA’s low-energy technology doesn’t damage skin, you can easily tattoo over a faded or fully removed tattoo in the future. And your tattoo artist will thank you! There’s nothing quite as challenging as having to tattoo over scarred or damaged skin, as can be the case when undergoing tattoo removal using high-energy tattoo removal devices. We also partner with leading tattoo artists who welcome the opportunity to cover-up tattoos. We’re happy to recommend an artist for your next piece if of interest.
