Aloe is a popular plant that has a variety of benefits such as healing sunburns, removing makeup, cleansing skin and treating dry or cracked skin. Aloe also has earned a place in the laser tattoo removal world. Aloe is great for healing your tattoo site after a laser tattoo removal session.
There are many parts to the aloe plant, but the one we want is the gel. Aloe gel is obtained from the cells in the center of the leaf and has a jelly-like consistency. There are many beneficial properties in the aloe gel that can help with wound healing and inflammation that may be experienced post laser tattoo treatment. Not to mention – cold aloe feels amazing on skin that is burned or healing!
Aloe leaves can be purchased in the produce section of most grocery stores. There are many methods to getting the gel out. We have found that the easiest way is to cut the top third of the leaf off, remove the spine and scrap the gel into a container. Aloe gel should be stored in the refrigerator for that extra “cool” blast. Trust us – it feels really good.
Aloe can be applied to the tattoo treatment site once the bandage is removed and used a few times daily until fully healed. Using aloe can help speed healing, help your laser tattoo removal site to feel better and is affordable, natural and very easy! Got leftover aloe? Try it as a facial wash or a shampoo!
