The result of laser tattoo removal depends on different factors. Sometimes, the process takes a bit longer to remove the tattoo completely. But, as humans lack patience, they cannot wait for much to see the result of the process.
At Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic and Medi Spa, you will enjoy quick and satisfactory results as we remove tattoo using the PicoSure® laser in as few sessions as possible. To further speed up the result of the process, consider the following tips.
- Avoid Exposure To Sunlight
Sun exposure increases the melanin levels in your skin. Due to this, the skin absorbs ultraviolet radiation. The increased level of melanin makes it hard for the laser to break down the ink as well as makes your skin prone to burning. It’s because the skin becomes more sensitive.
Your objective should be to limit the amount of melanin in your skin during the process. For this, you should keep the tattooed part of the skin shielded from the sunlight for at least six weeks before starting the treatment.
- Increase Physical Activity
Physical activity increases blood flow, which is very important during laser tattoo removal. Increased blood flow quickens the breakdown of ink particles in your skin. And if the breakdown of the ink is quick, the result will be quick.
To stay physically active, you should start with cardiovascular workouts and daily resistance training. It’s recommended to work out every day for a minimum of four times a week. Make sure you start this routine before the treatment.
- Maintain A Balanced Diet
The skin comprises protein, which is required to produce antibodies and reduce inflammation. But, this protein is not enough. If the protein intake is low, the recovery time of the skin slows down which impedes the tattoo removal process.
To get protein, you should maintain a balanced diet, including sufficient vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, and water. Other than this, you should take antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and probiotics.
- Quit Smoking
Smoking leads to vasoconstriction, which is a tightening of blood vessels. When blood vessels are constricted, they make it hard for the immune system to destroy the ink particles broken down by laser.
Quitting smoking is difficult for regular smokers. But, if you want to get rid of a tattoo, you should leave this habit before your laser treatment.
- Prevent Infection
Not just before, but you should be careful after the laser tattoo removal process as well. As the treated area is prone to infections, you should take care of it properly. Your goal should be to keep your body free from infections after the treatment.
To prevent infection, you should wash your hands regularly, shower every day, brush your teeth twice daily, cook meats properly, and carry a hand sanitizer with you all the time.
These tips will not only speed up the laser tattoo removal result but help the technicians as well during the treatment.
