Tattoes arms holding an appleMuch like healing a tattoo, it is important to pay attention to the healing process of your skin post-tattoo removal.

But did you know that what you put into your body after the fact can affect the way your skin will heal? It may sound crazy to some, but healing your skin starts on the inside.

To help you keep your skin healthy, we at EradiTatt have created a list of things you can do to help support your body while it’s healing.

Boost Your Immune System

When you go into a tattoo removal session with a healthy immune system, it can make it easier for your body to start the healing process. There are a ton of great things you can do to help improve your immune system’s function. Eating lots of fruits and veggies, drinking water, getting enough sleep and exercising are some easy ways to get an extra boost!

Promote a Healthy Liver

Your liver is a key player in tattoo removal. When your tattoo is zapped with our PiQo4 laser, white blood cells carry the ink particles to the liver where they are processed for removal from your body. Certain foods are great for promoting healthy liver function and detoxification, here are a few:

  • Grapefruit – Did you know that this fruit helps to increase the natural cleansing process of the liver?
  • Garlic – Garlic activates liver enzymes that can help the liver to flush out toxins.
  • Citrus – High in vitamin C, fruits like lemon and lime can help your body turn toxic materials into substances that can be easily absorbed. Try squeezing some in your water in the morning!
  • Avocados – This fruit produces glutathione, a compound which the liver needs to filter toxins.

Avoid Smoking

Smoking can cause your blood vessels to become constricted, which in turn makes it harder for your body to break down the ink and carry it out of your body. So, if you’re getting a tattoo removed, it is beneficial for you to cut your cigarettes back as much as possible. This will help your body when it’s pumping out those pesky ink particles.

Getting Your Tattoo Removed

Although these tips can help your body in the healing process, the best way to make sure your tattoos lift as much as possible are with consistent removal sessions.

After your next tattoo removal session, try some of these practices to help the process. Don’t worry, if you need to set up a tattoo removal – we’ve got you covered. EradiTatt can help remove unwanted tattoos. Send us a photo of the tattoo or come in for a free consultation. No matter the tattoo, #WeCanHelpWithTatt.
