Do not expose to the sun the areas you plan to treat (even for 1 hour).
Be extra careful of the effects of snow and water. You should apply UV protection 8 weeks before and 2 to 3 weeks after a laser tattoo removal session.
Finally, self-tanning creams that involve an increase in melanin are also forbiden on the treated area to avoid any risk of burns.
