What to Know About Tattoo Aftercare With Saniderm

What to Know About Tattoo Aftercare With Saniderm

 

While people traditionally just use simple shrink wrap to cover fresh tattoos, that isn’t always the best solution. This is especially true for tattoos in places where they may be in constant contact with clothing. For those tattoos, Cap1 Tattoos may use a special kind of aftercare wrap called Saniderm. Here are some things to know about this advanced tattoo wrap.

 

 

Basic Saniderm Information

For starters, some of the major things to know about Saniderm is that it’s latex-free and hypoallergenic, but it isn’t safe for those who have sensitive skin and are allergic to adhesives. Also, Saniderm helps to seal off your tattoo from the rest of the world and allows for your body’s natural healing elements to do their job.

 

Pros

When it comes to taking care of a new tattoo, few aftercare products can rival Saniderm. Here are just a few of the many pluses to using Saniderm.

 

  • Hypoallergenic
  • Facilitates quicker healing
  • Maintains deep blacks and vibrant colors
  • Waterproof
  • Airtight
  • Breathable
  • Flexible
  • Can be used regardless of tattoo places
  • Can be used for multiple days

 

Cons

With all the benefits, it’s hard to imagine what any disadvantages would be. In fact, there aren’t even enough to be worth putting in bullets. The first con is that it isn’t ideal if your skin is sensitive to adhesive, and the second is that it may hurt a little bit and pull out some hairs when being removed.

 

Once You Take the Saniderm Off

After the proper amount of time has passed and you choose to remove the Saniderm, clean the tattoo will with lukewarm water and unscented soap. After that, you can maintain your normal tattoo aftercare routine. While you may not need to apply any Aquaphor, you can still expect to need unscented lotion.

 

Tattoos are works of art and should be treated as such. Make sure you’re taking the best care of your tattoo possible. If you’re still thinking about getting a new tattoo, contact Cap1 Tattoos near Dallas, Texas to set up a consultation with Capone.
