According to board-certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schusterman, if you want to get your tattoo removed, the best way to have it done today is through laser tattoo removal. Though it affectively helps remove most tattoos, it is essential you follow the right aftercare to ensure there are no complications after the tattoo removal process.
Negligence on your part may lead to superficial burn wounds, bruising and swelling. Sometimes, scabs, crusts or blisters may develop, which generally last for about 2 weeks. It usually takes about 6 to 8 weeks for the complete healing process of laser tattoo removal.
Here are some laser tattoo removal aftercare tips you have to adhere to after getting your tattoo removed.
While these are the common precautions to take, and things to avoid after laser tattoo removal, you have to remember that each person is different. So it is necessary that you pay attention to any skin changes after the procedure.
It is normal to undergo bruising, burning, whiteness, redness, crusts and swelling for 1-2 weeks after the surgery. However if the area gets excessively inflamed, or a rash or small pimples develop, don't neglect; seek medical attention immediately.
