MEDICAL & SCAR CAMOUFLAGE.
➵Keep the scar or breast area dry & covered.
➵Apply a thin smear of Protat (2 times a day). The area where the tattoo has been applied must be kept moist for successful healing, without scabbing.
➵Cover your tattoo with Vaseline when bathing. Rinse the area gently and pat dry.
➵No picking at the tattooed area as colour can come away whilst bonding.
➵No soap or cleansers to be used on the treated area for 5 days after the procedure (as this may cause fading or colour change)
➵ No sun, sauna, jacuzzi, swimming (pools or ocean) for 5 days after the procedure (as this may cause fading or colour change)
➵ Colours will appear brighter and more sharply defined immediately following the procedure.
➵ Colours will lighten and soften in 3-10 days after your treatment.
➵ Within 2 weeks, your tattoo will have mostly healed. The initial intensity and thickness will fade and the desired colour shade will begin to appear.
➵ You may feel like the colour has lightened too much. This is why it is recommended that you wait 4 weeks to have your ‘touch-up’ procedure.
➵ If you would like to make any changes to your tattoo or fill in any areas requiring modifications (some area may have faded/lightened), this would be the time to do so.
➵ During ‘touch-up’ the original procedure will be repeated. This encourages the pigment to embed more permanently in the skin for a long lasting tattoo.
➵ You should not require another appointment (touch-up/colour refresher) for a least 1 - 3 years.
