How to Speed Up Tattoo Removal Tips

To understand how you can speed up the tattoo removal process, it’s important to know how it works. Tattoo removal works by breaking apart the ink particles into tiny fragments for your body’s natural immune system to carry away. Over time with continued sessions, the laser breaks apart layer by layer of particles for your white blood cells to naturally remove. Now, how can you speed up that process? Luckily, there are safe, healthy, and natural ways for you to help the process move along quicker. Making little changes to your everyday life can help your body process the treatments more effectively. Check out these tattoo removal tips!

Get Active

Getting your body up and moving will increase blood flow, which helps to break down the ink particles in your skin faster. Try to add more physical activity to your daily (or weekly) routine and you’ll be more likely to see better results from your treatments.

Hydrate. Hydrate. Hydrate!


Increasing your water intake can greatly impact how well your treatments work. Decreasing alcohol consumption will also be beneficial to your treatments because of alcohol’s dehydrating effect on the body. Staying hydrated makes it easier for your body to process the ink, therefore fading your tattoo faster.

Put it Out

We understand that quitting smoking can be a long and difficult process. However, smoking decreases the effectiveness of treatments by 70%! That’s a lot more time and a lot more treatments to get your tattoo removed! If quitting is not an option for you, we recommend trying to cut back on smoking to get the most out of your treatments. Many people have found that making the commitment to tattoo removal is a great motivator to quit smoking. Ultimately, the choice is yours!

Keep it Covered

Your technician will tell you time and time again to keep your tattoo out of the sun throughout your treatment process. If you get sun exposure to the treatment area you may either be denied treatment until your skin goes back to normal, or you may receive a lighter, less aggressive treatment as to not damage your sunned-skin. Having to reschedule your treatments will prolong the process, and receiving lighter treatments will require a greater amount of treatments. Make sure to keep your tattoo out of the sun with sunscreen, bandages, or clothing.

The laser can only do so much to remove your tattoo. The rest is up to you! Treating your body right and making healthy choices in your everyday life can greatly speed up the tattoo removal process.
