Before your Tattoo Removal


Tattoo Removal Aftercare

This first week is when most of the healing process takes place, please be very careful with the area treated and do contact Laser HRH if you do have any concerns.


What to expect after Tattoo Removal Treatments


Frosting & Small Blisters

Immediately after the tattoo is treated with the laser there is a process that happens called frosting. The frosting is a reaction of the ink and laser that causes tiny little bubbles and creates a white or frosted appearance to the colour. Blisters may also form in this time frame. Frosting typically resolves from 15min to a few hours after the treatment.


There is sometimes a little bruising under the skin which we call pinpoint bleeding. This is a normal response to the treatment.

Swelling & Redness

The skin around the tattoo can sometimes show signs of swelling and redness up to a 1 Week after treatment. Heavy exercise should be avoided for the first 2-7 days or until the swelling has been resolved.

*Failure to follow these after-care instructions may result in undesired side effects and may also affect your long-term results.
