TATTOO REMOVAL AFTERCARE
© London Tattoo Removal 2011

Before Treatment

• Avoid exposure to sunlight and sun-beds for at least 4 weeks.

• If the tattooed area is covered by hair, please shave the area 1 day before treatment.


• Do not apply any self-tanning products for 1 week prior to treatment.

48 Hours after treatment

• Avoid restrictive clothing or excessive friction of the area.

• Avoid applying creams, perfume or body lotions to the area.

• Avoid hot baths or getting the area wet.

• Avoid heat treatments such as saunas and steam rooms as well as jacuzzis.

• Avoid going swimming as chemicals in the water may cause a skin reaction.

• Do not lie in the sun or use sun-beds as this activates the melanin in the skin and can lead to    pigmentation marks.

If the area feels tender or warm


• Apply cold compresses of ice, or a pack of peas from the freezer wrapped in a clean
  cloth.

Do not apply ice directly onto the skin as this can cause a burn!

• Do not apply any creams/lotions to the area other than that recommended by your
  Laser operator.

• Clients should notify the studio of any change in medical conditions, medication or
   pregnancy.
