But having a great Laser Tattoo Removal treatment is only half of the story.

Water is the greatest tool in fading your tattoo following a laser tattoo removal treatment. Given that your body is made of 60 percent water it actually makes sense.

But why is this so?

Firstly, immediately after a laser tattoo removal treatment you should drink at least one to two litres of water so your body can use that water to cool and soothe the treated area from within. The body reacts to any trauma by pumping fluid to the area and with all that extra water in your system, the healing process begins immediately and recovery is much faster.

Following on from the laser treatment, your daily intake of water should be a minimum of 8 to 10 glasses per day. The more water the better.

Yes, it will make you run to the bathroom more often. That is EXACTLY what is required to maximise your tattoo fading.

Because the laser shatters tattoo ink into small particles that pass through the skin, the body’s lymphatic system then does the cleansing. To do its job effectively the lymphatic system needs to produce lymph to add to the bloodstream. The body needs water to produce lymph, so the more water, the more lymph is produced and so the better the fading as more lymph circulates within the body.

Drinking water not only improves the fading of the tattoo ink, it also greatly improves the skin by providing hydration and moisture. Dry skin is the enemy of great tattoo fading. So, the more water you drink, the better your overall health and well-being.

For fantastic results from your laser tattoo removal treatments just drink LOTS of water and follow our six simple steps for caring for your fading tattoo.
