The best thing you can do after your treatment is be your lymphatic systems best friend.This intricate highway of vessels moves lymphatic fluid throughout your body. It helps regulate the balance of all fluid in your body. And it’s most important function? Detoxification.
It’s the lymphatic system’s job to pick up and flush out cellular “trash” like bacteria, viruses, and most importantly in the tattoo removal process TOXINS, aka ink particles in your body. Once the laser makes contact with your ink it breaks it up into smaller particles so that your body can metabolize it.
Here are some quick and easy tips you can do between treatments to keep your lymphatic system stay at its best to be able to sufficiently flush out your ink pigments.
One of the best and easiest things you can do during your tattoo removal process is stay hydrated. It is recommended to drink half your weight in ounces of water a day. Without adequate water, the lymphatic fluid cannot flow properly. And one of the most common causes of lymph congestion is dehydration.
A big chunk of your body’s hydration needs should come from water dense raw fresh fruits and vegetables. This fluid, along with water throughout the day, helps keep your lymphatic system lubricated and draining properly. Leafy greens are always a good idea, such as spinach, broccoli, mustard greens, turnip greens, and kale. These deep greens have intense cleansing properties that help the lymph fluid make its way through the body.
Another easy thing you can do is to sleep in loose fitting clothing and undergarments. Nighttime is when the body naturally goes through its biggest detoxification process, so make sure you’re allowing the lymphatic fluid the most freedom to move. Try to avoid garments that are restrictive, especially under the arms and groin area where you have lymph nodes.
Lastly, move, move, move! Any sort of movement increases the pressure in lymphatic vessels, which helps move the fluid along. Walking, biking, yoga, jogging are great for your lymphatic system. Jumping can also be very effective. Using a trampoline uses gravity and movement to your lymph’s benefit and encourages good flow.
