Healing Times and What to Expect
Days 1-7: some minor bleeding, tenderness, bruising or swelling.
Week 2-4: swelling may intensify, you will begin to see white yellow discharge
Week 4-6: swelling will begin to subside & we suggest stopping in for a check-up around this time to see if any adjustments need to be made to your jewelry.
For Oral Piercings
Use mouthwash after anything you eat, smoke, or drinks with exception of water for 4 Weeks. Make sure to rinse your mouth completely out once a cleaning with mouthwash is done.
Avoid Pools, Hot Tubs or Submerged water of any kind for the first 6 Weeks. Submerging any piercing in dirty water is not advised.
Remove wrap after one hour.
Wash with antibacterial soap and warm water. Rinse with cool water. Pat excess and let air dry for 10 minutes.
Apply a light coat of auqaphor or approved tattoo aftercare product.
For 2-3 Days, Wash Tattoo as instructed above and apply Aquaphor/ or Approved Tattoo Aftercare product as needed.
After 3-5 Days, Switch to an Non-Alcohol/Non-Fragrance Lotion. No Pools, Hot Tubs, or Submerged Water of Any Kind.
Clean and dry the new tattoo and surrounding skin (lotions or ointments are not necessary).
Cut the Saniderm tattoo aftercare bandage to allow at least 1 inch of Saniderm to be in contact with undamaged skin. More extra room is suggested in highly mobile areas.
Peel off the paper backing to reveal the adhesive side.
Gently apply the bandage using light pressure. For best results, ensure that the skin is in a neutral position.
Remove the plastic backing, leaving only Saniderm on the skin.
Wear the first bandage for 8-24 hours, depending on how much the tattoo weeps. Remove the first Saniderm bandage, clean and dry the area, and apply a second bandage.
