Non Laser Tattoo Removal Aftercare
It is critical to follow all aftercare instructions to prevent complications, scarring and to achieve optimum results. Please read carefully.
Keep the area clean and open to the air. Do not cover with a Band-Aid or anything else, leave open to air. Air/oxygen provides good and faster healing. You should not be touching the area at all but if you find yourself needing to please make sure your hands are exceptionally clean.
Keep the area completely dry to enable the scab to form…no sweating or swimming or dousing your face with water.
Do not disrupt the scabbing process (i.e. no picking, scratching, etc.) All scabbing needs to fall off naturally. If you force or pick a scab off, you will disrupt the process and possibly cause scarring.
Do not apply makeup creams or oils to the area
Once the scabbing has fallen naturally off, apply one drop Vitamin E Oil twice per day throughout the day every day for a minimum of 4 weeks, or until next lightening session. DO NOT start applying the Vitamin E oil UNTIL all scabbing has completely fallen off. It is our goal to keep the area as dry as possible until all scabs have naturally fallen off.
LIPS please drink all liquids with a straw until all scabbing has naturally fallen off. No whitening, no peroxide toothpastes.
Cut food into small bites….no biting into a sandwich. Try to keep mouth expressions to a minimum.
- It is important to the process and integrity of the skin that 8 full weeks of healing take place before another lightening session can be done. No exceptions
- Lightening and/or removing unwanted pigment is a long process and patience is required. This is true whether you are choosing a lightening product service or laser.
Please be patient and give the process a fair chance to work. Expect visible and wanted results in 3 to 6 sessions.
How many sessions needed will depend on how saturated the pigment is, how deep it was implanted and how much needs to be removed for the desired result. In many cases only a percentage of the density needs to be lightened/removed and then we can continue the correction process by color correcting.
In those cases, where we have pigment misplaced or in an unwanted area, colour correcting will not be an option and removing as much of the pigment as possible will be our ultimate goal.
- Results cannot be foreseen, predicted or guaranteed.
