There are various reasons for a person to undergo laser tattoo removal; for instance to qualify for a new or better job, for health reasons or just because the tattoo is no longer wanted. Whatever the reason may be, most people opt for laser tattoo removal as it is a faster, safer and much more efficient means of removing a tattoo.

If you too are thinking of getting rid of your tattoo with laser tattoo removal, there are some things you have to do to get ready for the procedure.

  • First and foremost, inform your doctor if you are smoker. Smoking tends to make capillaries small, and also puts your immune system to a disadvantage. This can slow down the healing process after laser tattoo removal, and consequently, gives less favorable end results. If you smoke, stop smoking for a few weeks before and after laser tattoo removal for optimum results.

  • Inform your doctor if you are suffering from any active infection or inflamed skin condition. It is also advised not to take any aspirin or inhibiting and serotonin drugs for two weeks before and after the surgery.

  • Before undergoing laser tattoo removal, prepare a kit of gauze pads, medical tape, antibacterial cream and other first-aid supplies to help hasten the healing process It is better to use antibacterial soap to clean the tattoo region for a few days before the surgery. Plan on feeling somewhat less than par following the surgery and stock up on essentials accordingly.

  • Wear loose-fitting and comfortable clothing during the session so that your clothes don't rub against the removal site.

  • Clip finger- and toenails to prevent possible scratching and consequent inflammation in the region where the tattoo was removed.
  • With the help of these tips, you will be better prepared for your laser tattoo removal, and will not feel that much of a discomfort or pain because of it.
