Recently we talked about the getting the best results from laser tattoo removal sessions at Remove a Tattoo by drinking water. Another way to get the best results is to exercise. Exercise is important because it helps boost circulation, improves overall health and strengthens the immune system – all things that will help your tattoo fade faster!
Good circulation is an important part of the tattoo removal process. Increased circulation helps your body process and remove the ink after it is broken down by the lasers. This is why tattoos farthest from the heart, such as those on the ankle, fingers, or toes, usually fade slower – there is less circulation in those areas.
When you exercise your heart muscle contracts at a higher rate. This increases the blood flow to the veins and arteries. Doing this on a consistent basis will help keep your blood flowing and will keep your body’s functions, specifically the immune system efficient.
The immune system is a key player in the tattoo removal process. The laser breaks down the ink and the immune system does the hard work of carrying the ink out of the body. Exercise strengthens and supports the immune system. Exercise contributes to overall good health and overall good health contributes to a healthy and well-functioning immune system.
It is recommended that you incorporate both aerobic (cardio) and anaerobic (resistance) exercises into your routine to maximize your results from your laser tattoo removal sessions. Both are important for good circulation. Resistance training has been shown to increase muscle growth and stimulate the flow of blood.
For aerobic exercise try walking, running, swimming or biking 30-60 minutes 3-4 times a week. Resistance training can be done with weights or with bodyweight exercises such as pushups, squats and lunges.
