Areola Tattooing Recovery
Areola tattooing does involve some minor breaking of the skin's surface, so there is some degree of recovery involved.
First Two Days
Expect some redness and swelling for the first two days after your areola tattooing. If it has not subsided by the fifth day, contact your provider.
You may also notice some degree of pain and tenderness. Your provider will advise you if a painkiller is recommended.
If the area is oozing, clean it by gently blotting it.
Scabbing will have developed over the treated skin, which may feel tight and itchy. Avoid picking at the scabs. Discomfort can be relieved through the use of a moisturizer.
The scab from your 3d nipple tattoo in Dallas will peel away. The process may take up to one week. As mentioned earlier, avoid picking at the flakes and scabs. Let them fall away on their own. Until then, the scabs serve as a type of natural bandage to protect the sensitive skin developing underneath.
Although the surface area may appear fully healed, some internal healing is still going on underneath, which could take up to seven weeks. At that time, you may schedule a follow-up appointment to check on your progress.
