STEEL N INK
The first stage is essentially considered the open wound stage. This is the period of time in which your body is still trying to seal its open skin. Your body will try to seal its open wound by excreting a substance, called plasma, that will help this process. It is natural for our bodies to produce this healing element, which helps to break down dead tissue and rebuild new tissue. Under normal circumstances, these healing elements would dry up or evaporate quickly, creating a scab. However, in tattoo healing, scabbing is detrimental to the design.
During the second stage of healing, the skin becomes tight and itchy. During this portion of the healing, the top layers of skin that were traumatized throughout the tattoo loosen and begin to lift off, giving the skin a peeling appearance. It will essentially look like a peeling sunburn. Again, keeping it moisturized during this process can help ease the itching and protect the tattoo from any additional trauma caused by drying out.
The third stage of healing actually takes place below the skin after the open wound portion of the tattoo has closed up. At this point, the ink begins to settle into the layer of skin called the dermis. Your risk of infection has passed at this point in the healing, however, it is vital to keep the area well-moisturized to prevent any early blurring as the tattoo wraps up the final stage of healing.
How it Works
Using products like Saniderm minimizes the risk of infection by protecting your tattoo from Airborne bacteria, dirt, dust, pet dander, and environmental elements. clear of household plastic wrap, as it does not allow the tattoo to breathe—a crucial part of the healing process! It is also not adhesive enough to prevent plasmas from seeping or drying to the tattoo. After all, plastic wrap is for leftovers, not tattoos!
By design, These tattoo bandages is permeable enough for oxygen and water vapor to pass through. Additionally, it protects against dirt and germs, offering protection from friction and other irritants including the lesser bandages moving around.
Lock your body’s natural healing fluids so your tattoo stays hydrated and heals quickly and efficiently with no scabbing and reduced scarring. These wraps are engineered to be permeable so your skin can breathe and get all the oxygen it needs to heal perfectly.
Another perk—because it is breathable, you can wear Saniderm for several days at a time while your tattoo heals. This allows you to skip out on the frequent washing and ointment applying involved with traditional tattoo aftercare.
Lotions and ointments dry up quickly, and they have to be applied multiple times daily.
When used properly, the bandage will seal in your body’s natural fluids and plasma to keep your tattoo healing. Lock in your bodies fluids and keep your cells hydrated so that they can break down dead tissue and remove it more efficiently. This, in turn, reduces the healing time and keeps the finer details of the tattoo crisp and clean.
