Looking after your tattoo following laser treatment

It is important that clients take care of their tattoo throughout the whole process. Luckily, we don’t ask you to buy any fancy creams or lotions to do this – it's actually very simple to look after your tattoo.

Everyone reacts differently to laser treatment, some people may develop blisters or scabs, some people may bruise, some people may just get itchy and dry skin.

We advise that you use Vaseline on the area for the first two days after treatment, and then switch to E45 daily until your next treatment.

Your skin may become dry and slightly itchy – just like when you got the tattoo – and may feel like mild sunburn for the first few days. It is very important to not pick any scabs or blisters as this can cause scarring.

We ask that you protect your treatment area from sunlight by covering it or using SPF50/sunblock when it is exposed to sunlight. This helps us to achieve the best results for you. 

We understand that it can be daunting for clients at first, as they do not really know what to expect the healing process to be like after their first session, so we are always on hand to answer any questions you may have. 

Still have questions?
