HOW TO BEST ASSIST YOUR BLISTERS TO HEAL after a laser tattoo removal procedure:

Medilase Laser Tattoo Removals, has thousands of removal procedures “under its belt”, and every procedure on every person is unique and matters to us a great deal.

Sometimes blisters can emerge in the early stages of treatments.

When the blisters emerge, we really want you to be mindful and to take special care measures.

The body’s healing system is a very good one, and your blisters will heal and settle on their own as your immune system gets to work.

However you must take the time and care to prevent infection, to assist in minimizing scarring and to assist your cells to accelerate the healing process.

Medilase Suggestions to assist healing of blisters:

  1. Be mindful and don’t purposefully pop them or allow them to get injured.
  2. Allow fresh air to assist healing the unbroken blisters by leaving them uncovered by bandages.
  3. If the blister does break open, leave the flap of skin in place over the underlying layers of skin, and cover them with a loose bandage. Loose is the magical word! Air to move within the area.  Never use a waterproof covering.
  4. Gently pat dry with a new clean piece of gauze after your showering, spray the area with a sterile saline eye wash solution, and allow the fresh air to dry. Once dry, you may wish to dust some “Medipulv” antiseptic powder over it.
  5. Cover the injured area. Our suggestion is do not allow the gauze pad of the bandage to  sit flat on the blister; rather, make an umbrella type shape so the gauze sits above the area by  gently pressing the surgical tape on either side of the blister covering and allow the gauze pad to “sit above” by just a few millimeters over the skin.
  6. There are 2 reasons for doing this: Is to prevent unwanted organisms from the environment from contaminating the area, and 2. Is to allow the skin to breathe, for the air flow.
  7. It’s looking un-natural, very sore, ooze, and not feeling or looking like a normal heal for you? Straight to a diagnostic MD, This is a recipe for scarring, and unwanted contraindications.  Don’t hesitate!  Straight to you GP who has the knowledge and can legally prescribe what is required to assist you.
