How to speed up your tattoo removal

Speed up your tattoo removal

What can you do?


Tattoo removal takes time. And there are no guarantees on how long it will take. 


The good news is there are things you can do to make the process go faster and smoother.  


Put simply - the healthier you are, the faster your tattoo removal process will go.


Your body heals during the tattoo removal process. The healthier you are, the better your body is functioning, and it will process the healing more efficiently. 


Practical steps


During your laser removal session, a laser targets the ink in your tattoo and breaks up the ink. Your body then flushes the ink out of your system. 


That's why tattoo removal is a healing process. It takes several sessions to completely remove a tattoo and your body will be more efficient at removal when you are practicing good health.


Tattoo removal is a major decision. Whether you’re removing an old tattoo or lightening a tattoo for a cover-up, your skin is important to you (and us)! A big decision is worth doing right.


Be in better shape for your removal by following these general guidelines:


  • Get sleep                     

A good night’s rest is one of the most important factors in a healthy immune system. It’s also one of the most overlooked. And who doesn’t like a good night’s sleep?


For better results, get your sleep schedule in good order when starting your tattoo removal.


  • Get exercise 


A healthy body is an active body. Whether it's sports with friends, after work gym sessions, or taking the dog for a walk before your coffee, find a way to be active. 


Find a fitness routine that you know you can stick with over time. The removal process takes time and you want to be consistent throughout.


  • Stop smoking 


Smoking has a major negative impact on your immune system and on your body's cells. Stopping smoking will have a major impact on your tattoo removal.


Look, it's hard to stop smoking, but tattoo removal is a major life decision. Now is as good a time as any to commit to an overall plan for your body's health.



  • Stay hydrated 



Drink lots of water. This helps your body flush out toxins faster, which aids the tattoo removal process. 


Plus, if you start carrying around one of those huge water bottles, everyone will think you're one of those gym junkies...and that's half the battle. 



  • Protect against sun exposure 


The area where you receive laser removal will be sensitive after each session. Protect this area from sun exposure and treat it like you would a normal sunburn. 


The more you care for your skin between sessions, the faster you'll be prepared for the next laser removal session.


Best practices


At Nuleaf we want to give you the best information possible. To be clear, there is no guarantee on a time schedule when it comes to tattoo removal. 


Every body is different. Every tattoo is different. 


However, by practicing good health, your tattoo removal process will go faster and more efficiently than it would otherwise, generally speaking and for the most part.


Tattoo removal is a serious decision...why not make it a total commitment?
