Tattoo removal and the colder months. It may seem fitting that we only worry or become aware of our unwanted tattoos in the summer…..but the colder months are quite ideal to start the process.
Why? Well several things.
Tattoo Removal makes the treated area UV sensitive. In the summer you MUST be diligent about keeping the area fully covered with sunscreen. In the fall and winter we tend to bundle up and not expose the area to these harsh rays. (Another blog post will go into why keeping it out of the sun is so important, especially for folks with lots of melanin)
Starting the tattoo removal process in the colder months is like preparing for bikini season. Most tattoos will be well on their way to almost gone by summer. Super Bonus. You can strut your stuff without feeling self conscious.
The Heat. Your tattoo is more sensitive to heat right after a removal. With the colder weather it’s a tad more comfortable to not irritate it in the scorching heat.
I know its hard to set aside money for tattoo removal during the holidays, but with packages (saves $$$) and spacing them 6-8 weeks, we can accommodate your budget without you putting your needs aside.
