After that time, remove the film and gently wash with antibacterial soap. Dial, Cetaphill or such. Pat dry and after the area dried completely, open and apply the new Tegaderm film. Leave on for 5 days. 

If NOT Using Tagaderm

  • Absolutely NO cleansing creams, makeup or chemicals may be applied to the pigmented, treated areas for the first 3 days.

  • No hot, steamy, full pressure showers, saunas, excessive sweating, Jacuzzis or swimming in chlorinated pools.  These things can hinder the color bonding process.

  • No Retin-A, bleaching creams, glycolic acids, fruit acids or AHA acids on the treated area.

  • If crust appears on the procedure area, do not pick or peel the crust off because color will be removed along with the crust.  Do not touch the procedure area with fingers as the fingers could transmit bacteria onto the area and lead to infection.  This could ultimately incur some additional expenses to you.
