Laser Tattoo Removal Precare

Everything You Need to Know Before Your Laser Tattoo Removal Appointment

Excited to ditch that ink? We hear ya. But before you show up, you need to make sure you’ve read and understand everything on this list. Otherwise, there’s a chance we won’t be able to treat you, and no one wants that.

Stay Out Of The Sun

Avoid incidental or direct sun, tanning beds, spray-tans and self-tanners on your tattoo. When you are outside, protect your tattoo by applying sunblock (SPF 50+) and using barrier protection such as protective clothing or an adhesive bandage.

Prep Your Skin

Tattoo cover-up makeup, lotion, sunscreen and literally everything else you might put on your skin must be removed from the area being treated before your appointment. If you forget this one, we’ll have wipes on hand. If your tattoo is in an area that grows hair, please shave in the direction that the hair grows with a clean razor.

A Few More Things We Need to Know

Any changes to your medical history

New diagnosis? New pregnancy? New medications? Please tell us, as some medical conditions and medications are not compatible with laser treatments. It may be necessary to reschedule your appointment, as your health and safety are always our top priority!
