Tattoo Removal Aftercare Instructions:


 Post Tattoo Removal Care


For the first three days, cover the area with a layer of antibiotic ointment. You can remove the bandage after three days, but keep the area as clean and dry as possible. Hydrocortisone cream or Aquaphor can also be used to moisturize the area and reduce itching as it heals.

Wear sunblock of SPF 30+ any time you go outside. Sun exposure is not good for the skin after a tattoo removal treatment. 

Once the bandage is off, you can shower, wash the area with mild soap, and pat dry. Avoid swimming, baths, and hot tubs until the area is completely healed.

Do not pick scabs, pop blisters, or shave the area until it has healed.
