How To Prepare for Laser Tattoo Removal by PicoWay

To prepare for your laser tattoo removal treatment you should follow these instructions:

  • Avoid Sun Exposure: Minimize direct sun exposure and avoid intentional skin tanning in the treatment area for a minimum of six weeks prior to the commencement of treatment, throughout the treatment period, and immediately after the treatment. This precaution is essential to reduce the risk of complications and enhance treatment efficacy.
  • No Topical Agents: Cease the use of any potentially irritating topical agents, including but not limited to retinol, high-concentration acids, and active ingredients, for 2-3 days before the scheduled treatment. This measure is to prevent any adverse reactions or increased sensitivity during the treatment process.
  • Skin Preparation: Attend the treatment session with thoroughly cleansed skin. Ensure that the area to be treated is free from makeup, lotions, perfumes, and bath or shower oils. Clean skin is critical for the successful application of the treatment and to avoid the risk of infection or irritation.
  • Stop Antibiotics: Refrain from taking any antibiotics for at least one week before the treatment unless otherwise advised by your healthcare provider. Antibiotics can potentially interfere with the treatment's efficacy and increase sensitivity to the procedure.

By following these guidelines, you will optimize the outcomes of your laser tattoo removal treatment. Our team is here to help you if you have any questions following your tattoo removal treatment.
