Swimming - chlorine - and smudging over time?

Recommended Posts

I've been looking at the forum and the positive results posted for some time, however there's a number of concerns I have re. the longer term look. Will the treatment take on that smudge look like tattoos generally do over time? And what is the effect from regular exposure to chlorine as I swim regularly - thanks for any responses!

I've seen several folks with 6 year+ treatments and they still look good. There is always the

option for top-up work later on too so I wouldn't worry about fade/smudging. Not sure about swimming but think so long as you leave the work to heal then shouldn't be an issue and you could also wear a barrier cream if you are concerned. Overall the treatment is amazing and personally I wouldn't let these doubts put you off.

I would assume, a number of weeks or months after the treatment the skin has healed and the treatment is trapped. The top layer of skin should prevent any interference of chlorina in a swimming pool.

Hi, I go lane swimming 3 x a week and always wear a cap to, its been 2 years now since having my SMP and it has faded quite a bit to be honest, I can't be sure if it is the chlorine but I do wonder if it has speeded up the fading process.

I wouldn't let anxieties about chlorine stop you enjoying an excellent fitness routine. It is far more likely to be a vigorous immune system carrying the pigment off to the lymph nodes. Have you been back for a refresh? A short session can return an SMP to it's former glory.

Thanks ED, Yes I need to book in for a touch up ASAP, I love my swimming and do not want to give it up, but I also love my SMP its amazing what it does for a person and how you feel about yourself, no one has ever spotted it, I do wet shave 3 times a week after swimming I assume this OK ?
