The first piece of Dermalize Protective Tattoo Film can be left on the skin for up to a max of 24 hours. The exact time will depend on the amount of fluid buildup that the wound exudes: this will vary from person to person. In case of copious bleeding or weeping, the film can be replaced with another piece before 24 hours (a change after 4, 6 or 8 hours is also possible). In most cases people choose to wear the first piece for the first 24 hours, but it is advisable to change it whenever it gets dirty, too loose or full of liquids. When removing the film, make sure to carefully wash the area with suggested soap and water, and gently let the tattoo dry for 30 minutes.
This will also make it easier to remove it later on. Any further application of Dermalize can be kept on for a variable amount of time, depending on the client’s need, changing it when you deem it necessary. The total suggested use time of Dermalize, covering all applications, is between 6 and 7 days. If the Dermalize is hard to pull off the skin, simply let some warm water run under the tattoo film, so that the glue becomes weaker. Making removal of the film is easier. After the removal of the film, the tattoo will be dry. This is normal, and one should the tattoo with some lotion, coconut oil, or bepanthen to avoid alleviate any dryness.
