As a studio we recommend using Dermalize Pro for the initial stages of after care.
Dermalize is a Class 1 medical device (Reg.1338731/R e 1338737/R), a thin self-adhesive film that provides a moist healing environment during the initial, and most critical, healing stage of a tattoo wound. It is the new solution that replaces the alimentary cling film which has been improperly used in the tattoo aftercare so far. It protects the new tattoo from friction and provides a waterproof, antibacterial barrier that prevents pathogens and external contaminants from entering the wound. The film is breathable, letting oxygen in and allowing excess moisture vapoUr to be released from the wound. It’s light to wear, flexible and stretchable which allows it to be placed anywhere on the body and stay on, up to several days.
Your tattooist will cover your tattoo with the initial layer of Dermalize which will last 24 hours. we have a set of 5 sheets or a larger role for sale at reception for you to continue this process as another layer should be applied after the 24 hours and be left on 5 days. most tattoos will be healed by this point and then just a regular course of good moisturiser or cocoa butter should be used on dryer skin to complete the process.
