The Lymphatic System & Laser Tattoo Removal

What is the Lymphatic System?

The lymphatic system is a network of vessels, much like blood vessels. While the blood vessels circulate red blood cells, the lymph system circulates white blood cells. The two systems work together to keep the body feed and clean.

The plasma from your blood carries nutrition and oxygen into all your tissues. When plasma leaves your blood vessels and goes into your tissues, it is called interstitial fluid. The interstitial fluid washes your cells. It picks up toxins and metabolic waste. The interstitial fluid is then absorbed into lymph vessels. It is purified in the lymph nodes, then returned to the blood vessels. 

The lymphatic system does not have a central pump like the heart, so lymph circulation is dependent on other factors including exercise, muscle contraction, deep breathing, gravity and massage.

How does the lymphatic system effect Laser Tattoo Removal?

The  laser turns the ink from a liquid into small crystals. It is the lymphatic system that removes the destroyed ink from your dermis. That explains why it takes so long between treatments. It also explains why redness, scabbing and blistering is normal after a treatment. It is your body healing itself. 

What can you do to support your lymphatic system after a treatment?

  • Stop smoking. Smoking damages the vessels making it harder for the transfer of plasma. In an Italian study, smoking increased removal time by as much as 65%.
  • Hydrate. Your body is working hard to flush out the destroyed tattoo ink. Remember that plasma is fluid.
  • Take a walk. Your muscles will help power the lymphatic system.
  • Have a belly laugh. It compresses the diaphragm and promotes lymphatic drainage into the blood vessels. 
  • Elevate the area. In this case, gravity is your friend. 
  • Take a multivitamin.
  • Be patient. It just takes time. 


  1. I have gone through a laser tattoo removal (in Montreal and California) and I would absolutely NOT recommend anyone to do it...

    It has messed me up FOR LIFE both physically and financially!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE HEED MY WARNING!!!!

    If you go through the usual laser removal methods. Which I do not recommend, not only that it will leave marks on your skin, so in reality, the tattoo will still be kind of visible if you know where to look. It is a very long process. And to be honest, very costly.

    I had a hook up from a friend, and I have only paid 4000$ for 12 sessions. Which is a whole lot of money, but if I had to pay the full price, I would spend at least 6500$.

    This also depends on where do you live, but in general, it is costly. And it took ages to finish, they have recommended me at max one session per month. So I have ended up getting rid of this tattoo for more than a year and a half, and to be honest, the tattoo was quite small. It was significant as a can of coke. If I had a more massive tattoo, it would take a longer time and more session, which means more $$$$.

    Laserless tattoo removal is where it's at.

    Unfortunately, at the time of my tattoo removal, I did not know this, I know about this only thanks to my brother, which bought this program last year.

    This has a few pros and few cons. It works, and he was able to do it himself. Well, you have to do it yourself or ask someone to do it for you.

    It is a long process, but I believe he has spent just a couple bucks on this ebook. It is definitely way cheaper than any tattoo removal cream I have bought.

    And how long it will take to remove the tattoo with this method varies from person to person, their age and their skin. My brother got rid of his tattoo with in four months, I believe, and his tattoo was at least twice as big mine was.

    I am not sure, if he were supposed to do something to treat it every day, I would have to call him about it, but hey it works and out of all of these options it is the cheapest one and yes you might spend more time on this than on laser removal, but your tattoo will be gone sooner than if you would go with the laser removal option.

    To be honest, I do not know that many things about this, but I just did a quick google search and here is a great review of it:

    To my knowledge, this is the only 100% natural option out here in 2019 to get rid of your tattoos.

    I really hope this helps someone out there.

    Good luck!
