How to care for your new SPMU:
We have had the best results with the "Do Nothing" healing method and it makes it easier for everyone! We recommend washing the tattooed area GENTLY 2-3 times a day with lukewarm water and a disposable paper towel. Pat it dry and keep it out of the sun throughout the healing process. Do not apply any cosmetics in this area for AT LEAST 10-14 days. Just keep the area clean and let it breathe! If your skin starts to feel tight and dry around the third or fourth day, you may then use a SMALL amount of plain, fragrance-free lotion or moisturizer IF NEEDED. If you DO need to moisturize, please do so sparingly.
What to expect:
Immediately following your procedure, the tattooed area will appear to be darker and bolder in color and more sharply defined. This can last up to a week after the treatment while the initial healing process takes place. The treated area may feel a bit like sunburn afterwards but there should be minimal discomfort.
During the initial healing period, there should be minimal scabbing or flaking of the skin. If there is some scabbing or flaking, do not pick, and allow the scab or dry skin to come off on its own.
The complete healing process takes about 6-8 weeks, at which time the true color of the tattoo is evident. During this process, your tattoo will soften and lighten. Be patient, even if you think too much color has been lost, as your skin is still regenerating and naturally exfoliating. Wait at least 6 weeks to see the true color, as it seems to take on new strength, and it is only after 6-8 weeks that your touch-up/adjustment can be done.
