What is the recovery from laser tattoo removal?
Laser tattoo removal is a simple, outpatient procedure with no downtime. However, proper aftercare is essential for optimum results. You may experience redness, blistering, swelling, scabbing, or small amounts of bleeding. These minor symptoms typically resolve on their own within a few days after treatment. Cold packs can help relieve discomfort. Your upper layer of skin may turn white (this is known as frosting), but this will change when the skin peels off during recovery. It is important to boost your immune system with nutritious foods and exercise and to properly clean the treated area to help prevent infection.
