How Active Can I Be After My Tattoo Removal Treatments?
Exercising immediately BEFORE your laser tattoo removal treatment is no problem and recommended. But after you should be looking to avoid things that will induce or increase swelling after your treatment.
For smaller tattoos located on the torso, take one or two days off following your treatment. If there is no swelling, feel free to resume your normal workout routine. After your workout, take a shower and reapply ointment.
For larger tattoos and tattoos on extremities, exercising increases blood flow and can cause additional swelling and possible blistering. Avoid exercise for 48 hours or until swelling and tenderness in the area has subsided.
Be mindful that exercise includes activities that involve a lot of movement of the extremities like walking, and running or playing with your kids to the park. Just think of it as a guilt-free day of taking it easy!
Once the swelling has subsided we strongly urge you to exercise. Stimulating blood floor to the treated area can speed up the process by flushing out those unwanted ink particles!
