You did it! You’ve found yourself on the other sideof Fractional Lazer and we are so proud of you! You already know how important removing your tattoo is to us.
The aftermath of laser can feel frac-ing scary, so setting you up for aftercare at home is equally important.
FOLLOW THESE STEPS FOR HAPPIEST HEALING
Keep the area covered with our fancy bandage for 24-48 hours.
As post-fractional wounds are a graze and bleeding is extremely common.
The wrap might look a little bloody but don’t fret, these are your own bodily fluids.
Once you remove the wrap, feel free to inspect how badass your new wound looks. Give it a gentle clean with a pH-balanced wash (no soap or fragrance *owie*).
Pat the area dry with paper towel and start applying a thin layer of antiseptic cream lotion. Even good ol’ vaseline can help keep the skin hydrated and happy.
Every zapper and every tattoo is different, there’s no hard and fast rule for how long you should lotion up fractional wounds! Generally, 3-5 days is plenty. You can then switch out to a Vitamin E oil over the area to help regenerate your happy skin cells.
ACTIVITIES TO AVOID UNTIL THE AREA IS HEALED
Picking & scratching!! (this can lead to scarring)
Direct sun exposure for 2-4 weeks
Spas, saunas & chlorinated water
Exfoliants and active ingredients in your skincare routine
Products containing soap or fragrance
HOT TIPS & TRICKS
If water is entering your wrap before it’s time to remove, please remove the bandage. Trapped water is not a happy sign of healing. Feel free to rewrap with cling wrap for a more cost-effective care, but it is not always necessary!
Derma rolling!! This is going to assist your fade so much at home
Water is your best friend, every day and especially while healing from lazer wounds
Anti-inflammatory & anti-histamine medications can help reduce your swelling
Apply an ice pack to the area, frozen peas work well too!
Wear SPF once the area is healed, especially on those sensitive skin areas like your face, neck, chest & hands.
