The Importance of Good Circulation

May 12, 2017

Did you know that tattoos located farther from the heart tend to fade more slowly because there is less blood being circulated to the area? Good blood circulation is an important part of the fading process after having a tattoo removed. Here are a few tips to improving your circulation to help with post-removal healing.

We are often asked what can be done to help speed up the removal process in between each treatment. There are a few ways to help your system flush out the toxins quicker, which is especially important if your tatooo is located on an extremity such as an ankle, feet, or hand. These areas tend to have poor circulation, which can slow down the healing process.

Here are a few easy tips to help improve your body's circulation and cut down the healing time between treatments:

  • Drink lots of water! The average person should drink approximately 2 liters of water each day.
  • Increase your heart rate by exercising for at least 30 minutes every day. Exercise also helps to boost your immune system, which will help break down the toxins faster.
  • Once your skin is visible healed after a treatment (usually about 3 days), massage the removal area with a lotion or ointment to promote blood flow to that specific area. This also helps to moisturize the skin and improve the overall condition so you are better prepared for your next treatment. 

​We recommend following these tips during the 6-week wait between treatments to help promote faster healing and healthier skin.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to give us a call at 253-681-5330. We would be happy to consult you on the removal process and answer any questions you may have!

Tattoo ink exists deep below the first layer of skin. In order to reach all of the ink in the skin, multiple treatments are needed to break up the ink in layers. The size, depth, and color of the inked area is also a factor in the number of treatments needed. In your consultation, our Seattle Tattoo Removal Master Aesthetician will be able to give you greater insight as to what your tattoo removal treatments will entail.

In many cases, yes. However anyone seeking tattoo removal treatments should be aware that there are many factors which will determine the final results of laser tattoo removal treatments.

Get in touch. We'll set up a time to talk, or ask you to text us a photo of your tattoo. We'll work with you to put together an affordable, low-hassle tattoo removal plan so you know what to expect before you begin.

Patients who have received tattoo removal treatments with the Cutera enlighten laser compare the sensation to having a rubber band snapped against their skin. Not bad, right? But even better: Sound Tattoo Removal operates within Sound Vascular under the direction of a Medical Doctor. That means that unlike most tattoo removal centers, we can offer most patients lidocaine, a topical anesthetic to numb your skin. While your tattoo is being removed, you'll barely feel a thing.

Many patients report some redness and swelling. It doesn’t last long, and you can go about your normal work and family life immediately after treatment and throughout the process.
