Picosure laser tattoo removal with blisters growing too big, able to reduce or minimize? (Photo)

i just tried the picosure (i had qswitch 3x before this) and started blistering the very next day, the blisters are getting larger by the day (on day 3 after picosure laser) even though i elevate and stay off my feet and clean the area and keep it moisturized with aquaphor(as directed) is there a way to reduce/prevent the blsters from growing more?

PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal Post Care Blisters

You do have significant blistering.  This is rare after a PicoSure treatment, but can happen.   We always recommend that tattoo removal patients avoid heat on the treated area for 24 hours post-treatment, and consider using ice, especially after the 1st treatment.  Blistering is more common on the  lower leg and foot than on the upper body because of reduced blood flow. The blisters should  be treated like those from a sun burn; do not puncture (pop) them.  If you must, use a sterile needle to drain the fluid, but keep the overlying skin otherwise intact and in place to protect the healing area.  We  recommend keeping it elevated as much as possible and avoid heat (hot tub, hard cardio workout, working outside in Texas in July, etc) for 24 hours after laser treatment and as long as you have blisters.
