Laser Tattoo Removal during the Covid-19 Lockdown

‘Help! I can’t attend my next laser session on my tattoo because of lockdown.’

If like many others, you are feeling disappointed about this, we understand. It’s frustrating to have what is already a slow process drawn out even further. But be reassured that once the laser treatment course has commenced, your body will continue to gradually clear the lasered ink, even if you are overdue for your next session.

By helping your immune system operate more efficiently, you’ll not only help fade your tattoo faster, you’ll also be in better health should you become exposed to coronavirus.

Here are some things that you can do to help the process and ensure you are ready to resume laser treatment once the clinic re-opens:

 

1. Get Active
Exercise increases blood flow to your skin and all around your body, which helps move the lasered ink particles away from your skin faster. The government is encouraging us to exercise once a day during lockdown for our physical and mental well-being.

2. Stay Hydrated
Increasing your water intake can greatly impact how quickly your treatments work. Decreasing alcohol consumption will also be beneficial to your treatments because of alcohol’s dehydrating effect on the body. Staying well hydrated makes it easier for your body to process the ink, therefore your tattoo will fade faster. Two litres/day is ideal, though you should increase this if exercising intensely.

3. Eat Healthily
Food is more than fuel; the human body requires vitamins and minerals, proteins, carbohydrates & fats to keep the body functioning at its best. Try to avoid an unbalanced diet or one with a lot of processed food. Aim instead for a whole-food diet, mostly plant-based with colourful foods you prepare from scratch. But of course, it’s OK to enjoy an occasional less-healthy treat!

4. Get Enough Sleep
There’s no excuse not to get enough sleep while pubs, clubs and socialising is off-limits. Sleep is a well-documented means of strengthening the body and immune system – it’s when we recover both mentally and physically from the day. Adults need 7-8 hours’ sleep per night.

5. Quit Smoking
Of course, this is easier said than done, but regular smoking significantly decreases the effectiveness of your laser treatments. If your immune system is already working to remove smoking pollutants, it can’t work so well on your ink. If quitting is not an option for you, try to cut back on smoking to get the most out of your treatments. Making the commitment to tattoo removal can be a great motivator to reduce or quit smoking.

6. Avoid the Sun
If you get sun exposure to the treatment area, you’ll need to wait four weeks before you can have your next laser session. So use sunscreen, dressings or clothing to cover your tattoo as we head into Spring. Avoiding a tan in the treatment area will also reduce the chance of laser-induced pigmentation changes.

Picosure’s laser tattoo removal technology is the most effective currently available and looking after yourself day-to-day can speed up the tattoo removal process.
