Traditional Aftercare Instructions:
Keep your new tattoo bandaged for approximately two (2)hours. Then carefully remove bandage and wash entire area with mild soap and cool water. Dry the area, and re-apply a mild skin lotion. Use only a very thin coating and continue to re-apply it two-four (2-4) times daily for at least three (3) days. Do not rebandage the tattoo, as it could stick to the bandage and damage can occur.
Avoid sunburn, salt or chlorine water, or hot tubs until your tattoo is completely healed. In the event mild scabbing occurs, do not pick at or attempt to “wash off” the scab. Allow it to do so by itself. You may apply a mild skin lotion to keep “flaking” to a minimum.
If you have any questions or concerns, contact the body art facility where your tattoo was performed. In addition, you should seek medical attention if the tattoo site becomes infected or painful, or if you develop a fever shortly after being tattooed.
Saniderm Aftercare Instructions:
-The first piece of Saniderm can be left on your new tattoo for 8 to 24 hours. If you notice excessive weeping or fluid under the Saniderm, replace it with a new piece.
-At the 24-hour mark, remove the Saniderm gently. Wash the tattoo area with a mild antibacterial soap removing excess ink and fluid and allow the area to dry. Once dry, apply a second sheet of Saniderm. This will stay on for up to 6 days and see you through the peeling stage.
-Do not use a washcloth, loofah, or sponge to clean your tattoo. These can be painful to clean a new tattoo with and may harbor bacteria.
-The best way to remove Saniderm is to find an edge of the bandage and then to pull it back over itself in the direction of hair growth. Pulling upward on the Saniderm can be painful, so we don’t recommend it. We suggest removing the Saniderm in a warm shower. The warm water will loosen the adhesive and make it easier to remove.
-Make sure that you properly apply the Saniderm bandage (all edges are sealed) and leave at least 1 inch of buffer area around the tattoo.
-Rounding the corners before application will help reduce pulling or peeling of the adhesive edges.
-If you recognize an allergic reaction, red/ itchy/ hives remove immediately and contact the tattoo studio for other healing methods
Can I shower while wearing it?
Saniderm stays on skin even when immersed in water… so you’re able to shower as normal. It is waterproof, however excessive exposure to water should be avoided because it could weaken the adhesion.
How many pieces should I use?
We recommend using two to three pieces per tattoo, in order to allow ample time for healing. Your first piece may be used for 8-24 hours, and the next pieces should be used 1-6 days each, depending on how much fluid the tattoo weeps. If fluid breaks the seal on the Saniderm it must be replaced to avoid any bacteria entering the bandage
Can I sunbathe with it on?
Saniderm does not contain any kind of sun protection, so you should avoid prolonged sun or UV ray exposure. We do not recommend exposing your new tattoo to UV rays, ever – with or without Saniderm. Even after your tattoo is fully healed, continue to use sun protection to maintain the integrity of your tattoo colors.
Avoid sunburn, salt or chlorine water, or hot tubs until your tattoo is completely healed. In the event mild scabbing occurs, do not pick at or attempt to “wash off” the scab. Allow it to do so by itself. You may apply a mild skin lotion to
keep “flaking” to a minimum. If you have any questions or concerns, contact the body art facility where your tattoo was performed. In addition, you should seek medical attention if the tattoo site becomes infected or painful, or if you develop a fever shortly after being tattooed.
Saniderm locks in the body’s natural moisture and healing enzymes, allowing the body to heal itself in the most efficient manner possible. After skin has been injured, healing elements are produced to help break down dead tissue and rebuild new tissue. Under normal circumstances, these healing elements dry up and evaporate which reduces their effectiveness. When this happens, longer healing times are required and scabbing and scarring may occur. Saniderm locks in these healing elements, and allows the skin to continue to function as normal because the bandage is permeable to oxygen and water vapor (breathable). In addition, Saniderm protects against dirt and germs while eliminating friction and other irritations that might further interfere with the healing process.
