How to Speed Up the Tattoo Removal Healing Process
You’re probably eager to see your skin healing as quickly as possible, and we completely understand your desire to speed up the process. Boosting your body’s overall health will help the area treated with laser removal to heal more quickly.
For the best results, follow all of these tattoo removal aftercare tips consistently throughout the entire removal process, which takes place over multiple sessions spaced at least six weeks apart. It’s critical to keep your body and skin in optimal health throughout that time—starting from the very first session. These steps will help you to kickstart the laser tattoo removal healing process immediately after leaving the clinic.
Maintain a Healthy Immune System
Caring for tattoos after laser removal means boosting your body’s overall health. In other words, keeping your immune system strong is a vital part of tattoo removal aftercare.
Why? Your laser session is just the first step of the process. Afterward, your body has to work hard to flush out the ink and regenerate new skin. White blood cells rush in to remove the ink that the laser removal process has shattered into tiny particles, flushing them out of the skin. Here are some tips for strengthening your immune system, benefiting your healing and overall health.
Drinking enough water will improve your circulation, bringing lots of those white blood cells to the affected area. This will ramp up both ink removal and skin repair, helping your skin heal as efficiently as possible!
Eat healthy foods that give your body lots of nutrition. This will give your body the fuel to regenerate healthy skin cells. Eat lots of veggies and choose lean proteins to provide your body with the vitamins and minerals it needs to regenerate.
Make sure you’re eating regular meals, too. (Don’t skip breakfast!)
Though you need to avoid intense exercise for the first day or so, regular exercise is essential for a healthy immune system. Thus, it’s an essential element of tattoo removal aftercare. Exercise strengthens each of the body’s systems, which can then work together more effectively. When each system is healthy, none of them is demanding too much help from the immune system, which could take away valuable resources from the healing skin.
