PicoWay Tattoo After Care
Postoperative treatment care
- Immediately after treatment, there should be a “slight frosting” on the area that is treated. Erythema (redness) and edema (swelling) at the treatment site can occur and may last up to 2 hours or longer. Pinpoint bleeding may also occur.
- An ointment (Aquaphor, bacitracin, or even Vaseline) should be applied to the treated area and covered with a non-stick bandage (Telfa).
- After the treatment, the skin can scab over. It is very important not to pick, scratch or aggressively wash the area to prevent possible scarring. This crust should flake off in 7-10 days.
- Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of hyper-pigmentation (darker pigmentation)
- Use sun block (SPF 30+) at all times throughout the course of your treatments.
- There are no restrictions on bathing except to treat the area gently, as with any other wound.
