In our quest for personal expression, tattoos have gained prominence as potent symbols of identity and storytelling. Yet, there can be instances when these inked artworks no longer resonate with us, calling for professional cosmetic tattoo removal services. Enter Zapatat, a leading provider of tattoo removal services known for its commitment to safe and effective procedures.

In this guide, we will delve into the crucial phase of skin care after tattoo removal. Here, we will shed light on the importance of investing in skin care products and following a dedicated regimen to ensure a fast, healthy recovery.


Understand Your Skin Post-Removal

The skin goes through a healing process after a laser tattoo removal procedure. It is usually reddened, swollen, and sensitive. Blistering is common on the first treatment. Treating this “new” skin gently and meticulously is imperative to prevent complications and expedite recovery.


Maintain Cleanliness

Keeping the treated area clean is paramount. Gently clean the area with lukewarm water and a mild, fragrance-free soap. Pat the area dry; never rub, as it can irritate the skin.


Never submerge compromised skin!

It’s fine to shower but submerging can cause serious complications like sepsis. So no swimming, hot tubs,baths etc until the skin is fully healed!


Use Appropriate Skin Care Products to

How you care for your skin while healing will impact the treatment’s effectiveness and side-effects.  Anything you put on your skin while healing should be hypo-alergetic and fragrance free. Do not use antibiotic ointments unless you suspect infection.Opt for skin care products specifically designed for post-procedure care. These products often contain healing ingredients like aloe vera, Vitamin E, and chamomile. Zapatat recommends consultation with a skincare professional to determine suitable products for your skin type and condition.


Stay Hydrated

Skin hydration is not just about applying moisturizers. Drinking plenty of water enhances your skin’s elasticity, increases blood flow and accelerates healing.


Protect from Sun Exposure

Shield the treated area from the sun’s harsh rays for at least 2 weeks after any laser treatment.. When necessary, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least an SPF of 30. Sun exposure can  cause pigment changes (hyperpigmentation).


Follow a Healthy Lifestyle

Adopting a holistic lifestyle can expedite your recovery process. Eating nutrient-rich foods aids skin repair, engaging in physical activity improves blood circulation, and getting ample sleep boosts your body’s regeneration capabilities.  All of these make treatment more effective. Vegetarians and Vegans tend to have slower removal because they may lack some key minerals and vitamins in their diets. Nicotine of any type will reduce blood flow to the skin and will always make removal take longer. Thus, an overall healthy lifestyle significantly affects effective skincare for  tattoo removal.


Avoid Picking or Scratching

As your skin heals post-treatment, it might itch or form blisters or scabs. Resist the temptation to pick or scratch, which can lead to scarring or infections. It’s important to let blisters or scabs to remain as long as possible (your skin is repairing itself). For itching we recommend Hydro-cortizon and antihistamines.
