    Why Lymphatic Drainage Massage Helps With Laser Tattoo Removal 1. Introduction Laser tattoo removal is a popular treatment for those who want to get rid of an unwanted tattoo. It is popular because it’s the safest and most efficient way. The treatment works by breaking up the ink particles in the tattoo with a laser. This can be a very effective way to remove a tattoo, but it can also be quite painful. One way to help reduce the pain of laser tattoo removal is to get a lymphatic drainage massage before the treatment. Lymphatic drainage massage is a type of massage that helps to encourage the movement of lymph fluid. This can help to reduce pain and swelling after the treatment. BROKEN-INK, Laser Tattoo Removal Clinic in Fishtown, PA has put a lot of time and research into tattoo removal, and we have some extra credit you can do for yourself throughout the journey to significantly speed up the fading or removal of your tattoo. To learn more about the science of why lymphatic drainage massage helps with laser tattoo removal, read on! 2. What is lymphatic drainage massage? Lymphatic drainage massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on stimulating the lymphatic system. It helps to move the lymphatic fluid within the body, which helps to reduce pain and swelling around the area that is being treated. The massage involves the use of gentle and slow strokes on the skin that help to stimulate the circulation of lymphatic fluid. The therapist may use cups, balls, or other tools to provide the massage. It is important to ensure the massage is being done by a properly trained and certified therapist to ensure the treatment is effective. In addition to helping with laser tattoo removal, lymphatic drainage massage can also help with reducing pain from bruises and injury, reduce water retention, and help to detoxify the body. It is a gentle massage technique that is safe for people of all ages and can be a great way to relax and reduce stress. 3. How does lymphatic drainage massage help with laser tattoo removal? The science of lymphatic drainage massage is related to the movement of the lymphatic fluid around the body. When the lymphatic fluid is not flowing properly, it can cause problems such as swelling, fluid retention, and sluggish digestion. This massage helps to provide the body with relief. Lymphatic drainage massage is said to reduce the amount of healing time required with laser tattoo removal. In addition, it can help reduce pain and inflammation associated with the process, as well as provide relief from bruising. The massage helps to increase circulation in the body, which is crucial when undergoing laser tattoo removal. It helps the body to better absorb and remove ink particles, resulting in a quicker, more efficient tattoo removal process. It is important, however, to speak to a qualified massage therapist in order to formulate a treatment plan, as lymphatic drainage massage should be done before, during and after laser tattoo removal procedures. 4. The science behind the lymphatic system The fluids present in the lymphatic system help protect the body from foreign organisms and protect us against inflammation. In addition to these functions, the flow of lymphatic fluid around the body also helps to reduce swelling and provides the skin with nutrients. The movement of lymphatic fluid within the body is aided by finger and hand pressure, which is what makes lymphatic drainage massage so effective when used in conjunction with laser tattoo removal. This type of massage also helps to stimulate circulation to help with the removal of toxins such as broken-ink particles (see what we did there?) and other waste materials from the affected area. As mentioned, lymphatic drainage massage should be used before and after the laser tattoo removal treatment for maximum effect. This type of massage helps the body to deal with the effects of laser treatment and provides it with the nutrients and fluids needed for the area to process the tiny ink particles as well as heal quickly and efficiently. By combining lymphatic drainage massage with laser tattoo removal, patients can experience the most effective and fastest results with their tattoo fading or removal.

  • Top 6 Tips to Speed-Up Laser Tattoo Removal Results

    Laser Tattoo Removal is a long-term commitment! Unfortunately, it’s not a one-and-done treatment. Money, time, and patience are the 3 things you will need during the process, but if you are committed to follow through with it, we have some great tips on how to speed up the results! BROKEN-INK, Laser Tattoo Removal Clinic in Fishtown, PA has put a lot of time and research into tattoo removal, and we have compiled a list of things you can do throughout the journey to significantly speed up the fading or removal of your tattoo. To break this down for a quick read, I will make this short and sweet. Laser Tattoo Removal consists of many variables, but there are two important things that need to happen. First, a laser needs to shatter the tattoo ink, second, your immune system must be effective at removing the shattered ink particles through your Lymphatic system. It really boils down to that! BROKEN-INK has state of the art lasers to break up that ink. We take care of the first step; the next step is all up to you and how effective your body's immune system is at removing that "BROKEN INK". (See what I did there?) Book your FREE Consultation today! _________________________________________________________________________________ Top 6 Tips to speed up the tattoo removal process 1 - Drink water. Water makes up most of you Lymph fluid. Lymph is the liquid that flows through your body and is the superhighway your immune system uses to help get those broken ink particles into the lymph nodes and out of your body. The more hydrated you are, the more lymph can flow to clear the broken ink. If you are dehydrated, then the lymph works slower – taking more time to remove the ink. This equates to more time, treatments and more money. 2 - Lymphatic Drainage Massage. After your laser tattoo removal treatment heals (about 1 week after treatment) on the outside of your body, it has been proven to be extremely helpful to massage the area of the treatment and perform self-lymphatic drainage massages once or twice a day. These are very easy to do and especially helpful for those tattoos that are in a location far away from the heart and lymph nodes. 3 – Exercise. Keeping you body healthy in turn keeps your immune system healthy. Better circulation leads to better lymph movement, which is good for removing the broken ink particles more efficiently. Try to get at least 30 minutes a day of some type of exercise – even a daily brisk walk can help improve results. 4 - Vitamin B. Taking vitamin B every day can improve your immune system. Some of our clients have gone to the next level and had Vitamin B shots. Vitamin B is a proven way to increase the immune system to effectively improve tattoo fading and removal. 5 – Eat Clean & Healthy. A clean diet rich with vitamins and minerals is a great way to keep a healthy immune system. Eat organic fruits and vegetables, and fresh fish (Salmon). Stay away from sugars, fatty foods and processed foods. 6 – No Smoking Cigarettes! The tobacco in cigarettes is horrible for your body. Not only does it put a tremendous strain on your lungs, but it also is taxing to the immune system. Tobacco slows down you circulation by constricting the blood vessels and makes your body constantly go into repair mode, robbing the limited amount of white blood cells to remove your broken ink – this will cause a significant slowdown in the tattoo removal process and undoubtedly add multiple treatments and months of time for the removal process. We highly recommend quitting smoking before starting laser tattoo removal treatments. It is best to quit 2 months prior to your treatment, as this is the average time it takes for your body to get back to a normal state. ________________________________________________________________________________ Remember to choose a Laser Tattoo Removal business that not only has the correct laser, but the knowledge and experience that goes along with it.
