People are often surprised to learn that tattoo removal does not stop after the laser treatment and initial wound healing are over. In fact, it is during the weeks following the laser treatment that the ink clearing actually happens.
It is your immune system that does that bulk of the work and a healthy lifestyle will help achieve faster results. This means drinking water, exercising, avoiding excessive sun, and avoiding smoking and alcohol.
It is not a good idea to drink alcohol before or after getting a new tattoo and the same rule applies for removal. Alcohol thins the blood, can impair your judgment, and drinking large quantities actually can hinder your liver and kidneys from flushing out the ink particles after a laser treatment session. If the particles can’t be flushed out, they will stay in your skin and your tattoo removal progress can stall.
Alcohol can be consumed in moderation, but your immune system is better off by you drinking a large glass of water and going to bed early. Your overall health is an important piece of your results from laser tattoo removal.
