Getting The Most Our Of Your Treatment
First and foremost, realize that the laser treatment is only one step in the process. It is actually your immune system that is doing the heavy lifting. The pulsed laser breaks the ink into microparticles, but it is your lymphatic system that actually carries the particles away to be flushed out of your system. In order to speed the process, live as healthy and as you can and exercise moderately.
Drink Plenty of Water Daily
Drink plenty of water, even if you’re not particularly thirsty. We’ve all heard the old adage about drinking ample water every day, but now it’s even more crucial. Water will help flush your system, carrying away those microparticles of ink.
Get up off the couch and exercise.
Increase blood and oxygen also help to cleanse your body of toxins and helping to speed the revelry process between treatments.
Eat Right and Take Your Vitamins
Of course, we have no idea what your daily diet is, but if you’re like most people, it could stand some improvement. For best results and a speedy removal of your ink, stay away from fast food and sugary drinks. Eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Take supplements that contain antioxidants, amino, and essential fats.
This one is going to sound crazy, but science proves it. When your skin undergoes laser removal procedures it needs to heal, that one is obvious, right? Well to heal properly and speedily, your body needs protein. So cook up some good lean meat and enjoy a tasty meal.
Get Rid of Stress
Stress can damage your immune system and slow the healing process. It’s pretty difficult to get through life without some stress, especially in our fast-paced tech-savvy world, but we need to try. Consider meditation or Yoga, both of which will ease away the tension, reduce stress and help you heal that much faster.
Get Your Rest
Your body needs to rest, that’s a fact and depriving it of sleep will slow the healing process. As much as you can, get the rest you need every night, not only will it speed the healing of your tattoo removal, it will simply make you feel so much better the next day.
This one is mostly common sense. Wash your hands, keep clean, shower daily, brush your teeth often. If you get a cut, don’t say, “No big deal”, care for it, protect it from direct and germs. Use hand sanitizer often, colds and cases of flu are often passed via the hands touching a surface.
Stay Healthy During Cold and Flu Season
Try your best to avoid colds and the flu. Yes, I know, that’s something we all should do anyway, but for you, while you’re healing, it’s doubly important. In fact, if you get sick during a series of laser treatments, we’ll need to postpone any further treatments until you’re well. Why? Well, if you’re the body is busy fighting off a nasty cold, we don’t want to overtax your system with ink particles.
Quit Smoking Immediately
We all know that smoking is bad for us, but for you, while you’re healing, it will drastically increase the time it takes for your tattoo to be removed. And, if you’re thinking we’re simply anti-smoking zealots, we’re not, smoking causes vasculitis which narrows the blood vessels and slows the elimination of toxins, in your case, ink particles.
Remember this, laser tattoo removal is not an “Easy Button”. Certainly, it works, it’s proven, but it takes two to tango, and you need to do your part to help your body heal.
