HOW TO USE

 

APPLICATION STEPS

 
STEP 1 - Clean and dry the new tattoo and surrounding skin (lotions or ointments are not necessary).
 
STEP 2 - Cut the Saniderm tattoo aftercare bandage to allow at least 1 inch of Saniderm to be in contact with undamaged skin. More extra room is suggested in highly mobile areas.
 
STEP 3 - Peel off the paper backing to reveal the adhesive side.
 
STEP 4 - Gently apply the bandage using light pressure. For best results, ensure that the skin is in a neutral position.
 
STEP 5 - Remove the plastic backing, leaving only Saniderm on the skin.
 
STEP 6 - Wear the first bandage for 8-24 hours, depending on how much the tattoo weeps. Remove the first Saniderm bandage, clean and dry the area, and apply a second bandage.
 

Tips for Saniderm Tattoo Aftercare

  • For maximum comfort, ensure skin is in a neutral position when applying Saniderm. When applying to elbows and knees, the joint should be in a neutral position — neither straight nor completely bent.
  • Shave, shave, shave. Peeling Saniderm off of hair is unpleasant. Shave the entire area, plus an additional inch all the way around the site of the tattoo.
  • Practice before you apply. If it's your first time using Saniderm, it may be a little tricky to work with. It doesn't hurt to practice with a small section first, just make sure you shave the area.
  • When cutting the bandage for application, remember that rounded corners provide the best adhesion.
  • It's okay, when using multiple Saniderm bandages, to overlap them by 1/2 inch (1 cm).
  • If using a glycerin soap, such as green soap, be sure to rinse thoroughly, as any residue will react with the adhesives and can cause binding and irritation.
  • Avoid loofahs or scratchy wash cloths.
