Post-Care Instructions for 3D Areola Tattoo:
Initial Healing Period: We will apply a breathable dressing to apply on top of the area immediately after. You will be advised to leave it for 24 hours. Keep the treated area clean and dry for the first 24 hours after the procedure. Gently blot any lymph or excess fluid that may appear with a clean tissue. Avoid touching or scratching the tattooed area to prevent infection. You will be supplied a second dressing to apply for the 4 to 7 days thereafter.
Aftercare Products: Apply a thin layer of the recommended aftercare ointment or cream for 10 days once the area is exposed to air.
Physical Activity and Water Exposure: Avoid swimming, saunas, hot tubs, or activities that cause excessive sweating for at least two weeks after the treatment. Keeping the area dry helps prevent bacterial growth and ensures proper healing.
Sun Protection: Protect the tattooed area from direct sunlight by wearing loose clothing that covers it or using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF. Sun exposure can fade and distort the tattoo's color. Once fully healed, continue protecting it from the sun to maintain longevity.
Avoid Picking or Peeling: Refrain from picking, peeling, or scratching the tattooed area, as it can disrupt the healing process and affect the final result. Let any scabs or dry skin naturally exfoliate on their own.
Makeup and Topical Products: Do not apply makeup, creams, lotions, or any other topical products directly on the tattooed area until it is fully healed. These products can interfere with the healing process and introduce bacteria.
Follow-up Sessions: Depending on the individual and our artist's recommendation, additional touch-up sessions may be necessary to perfect the result. Attend any scheduled follow-up appointments as advised by your tattoo artist.
