Some of us might regret getting a tattoo and now you want to get it removed. You will be surprised to know that there are 9 million American adults who want to remove the unwanted tattoo. The laser-based tattoo removal procedure is safe as well as effective. The laser is very safe as it does not affect the surrounding tissues as it only separates and removes the tattoo ink. On average it takes around 6 to 8 sessions to remove the tattoo.
Additionally, it also possible to speed up the process of tattoo removal surgery by boosting the immune system. This is because the laser removes the ink by breaking the small particles according to the normal response of the body’s immune system. Here are some ways in which the process can speed up.
• Quit Smoking

With this procedure also, smoking is not at all beneficial to effectively remove the tattoo. Smoking can also affect the healing process of the wound. This will eventually increase the number of sessions required which will increase the cost also. A study has shown that people who smoke need at least 10 sessions to get the tattoo removed which is more as compared to those who do not smoke.
• Do exercise
Adding exercise in your routine while getting the treatment is very helpful. This is because the blood flow is increased as well as the immune system becomes more strong.
• Sun Protection
Another thing which will help to speed up the process is protecting the skin from sun exposure. In case if you get a skin burn then you have to till the time it is healed properly then only you can get another session. Make sure between the sessions you avoid sun exposure. You should apply sunscreen of high quality which should have at least SPF 30+ and contain zinc oxide 7 to 10%. Also, cover your skin properly.
