Areola Repigmentation Aftercare Instructions 

Congratulations on your Areola Repigmentation at El Zorro Tattoo! To ensure the best results and a smooth healing process, it's essential to follow our aftercare instructions diligently. Here's a step-by-step guide to guide you through the healing journey:

Immediate Post-Procedure Care:

  1. Gentle Cleansing:

    • Clean the treated area gently with a mild, fragrance-free cleanser using a cotton pad or swab. Be cautious not to rub or scrub the newly pigmented areola.

  2. Application of Healing Ointment:

    • Apply the recommended healing ointment to the treated area immediately after the procedure. This helps in keeping the skin moisturized and promoting healing.

  3. Avoiding Sun Exposure:

    • Shield the treated area from direct sunlight. If you need to be outdoors, wear loose clothing that covers the areola or use a gentle sunscreen.

First Week After Areola Repigmentation:

  1. Avoiding Water Exposure:

    • For the first week, avoid exposing the treated area to water as much as possible. Be cautious during showers, and avoid swimming or hot tubs.

  2. No Scratching or Picking:

    • Resist the urge to scratch or pick at the healing skin. Allow any scabs or dry skin to naturally fall off to prevent pigment loss or scarring.

  3. Wearing Comfortable Clothing:

    • Opt for loose-fitting clothing to minimize friction and irritation on the treated areola during the initial healing phase.

Weeks 2-6:

  1. Moisturizing Routine:

    • Continue applying the recommended moisturizer to the areola to keep the skin hydrated. This helps maintain the vibrancy of the pigment.

  2. Limited Sun Exposure:

    • Even after the initial healing period, be mindful of sun exposure. Use sunscreen on the treated area if it will be exposed to sunlight.

  3. Gentle Physical Activity:

    • Avoid strenuous activities that may cause excessive sweating, as sweating can impact the healing process.

Follow-Up Appointment:

  1. Schedule Your Follow-Up:

    • Around 6-8 weeks post-procedure, schedule a follow-up appointment with us. This allows us to assess the healing progress, make any necessary adjustments, and ensure you're satisfied with the results.

If you have any concerns or questions during the healing process, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. Your comfort and satisfaction are our top priorities.
