ENHANCED TATTOO AFTERCARE New tattoos are an open wound and because of that, tattoo aftercare is very important. Wounds heal faster and better when they are kept moist and clean. That is why people put lotions and ointments on cuts and abrasions and new tattoos. The problem is that lotions and ointments dry up quickly and you have to put them on about 5-6 times a day, and your tattoo still dries up between each application. Studies have shown that wounds that are kept moist can heal twice as fast as wounds that are left dry. When a new tattoo dries up, scabs form, your skin cells become dehydrated, and cells die. This causes fading, distortion of colors and design, and longer tattoo healing time. You body tries to keep a healing wound moist by sending fluids and enzymes to the site of the wound, but these fluids and enzymes become ineffective when they dry up and are actually what forms the scab. The purpose of the scab is to protect the wound from environmental contamination. But, at the same time, scabbing has some disadvantages. A scab forms a barrier to the generation of new tissue. Studies have shown that under the influence of scabbing the regenerative wound healing processes take more time, thus increasing the risk of scarring. Saniderm tattoo aftercare, when used properly, will lock in your body’s natural fluids and enzymes to keep your healing tattoo moist, and it will prevent scabbing. With your body’s natural fluids and enzymes locked in, your cells will stay hydrated, tissues that are already dead will be broken down and removed more effectively, damaged blood vessels will re-generate more quickly, growth of new cells is stimulated and pain is significantly reduced.
