Do you have Itchy Skin After Laser Tattoo Removal?

no scratching your tattoo Itchy skin is quite common after a tattoo removal procedure and is a normal part of the healing process. It should be seen as a good sign, as your immune system is kicking in and starting to heal the treated area. The laser also causes some dehydration to the skin which can result in itchiness.

We urge you to try your hardest not to scratch the area.

In most cases the itchiness is not too bothersome, try using a non scented moisturizer or our after treatment balm – these can provide great relief.

In some cases, however the itch can be quite intense and it seems to be usually at night when you are trying to relax.  If you have tried moisturizing the area with no relief go to your pharmacist or medical professional and seek advice on using an antihistamine.

Scratching may also break the skin and create a wound, which will lead to additional scarring or risk infection.
