MicroBalm is used for every stage of conventional, cosmetic and/or para-medical tattooing. MicroBalm is designed to provide optimal hydration, and create a soft workable canvas for the artist to work.
As a pre- and post-care salve MicroBalm serves as an important tool for optimising the outcome of tattoo treatments. A 100% natural formulation with a pleasant fragrance derived from all-natural ingredients, MicroBalm supports the delicate healing process while maintaining the skin’s existing nutrients. These elements foster exceptional wound care and are designed to provide a clean, stabilising breathable barrier. MicroBalm is designed to reduce itching and maintain moisture while it feeds the skin nourishment without clogging pores or leeching colour.
MicroBalm has been infused with hand-selected, fresh, natural and organic ingredients such as select herbs, oils, energy-packed chlorophyll, antioxidants and other key ingredients with anti-bacterial and hydrating properties which are designed to calm inflammation, soothe the skin and reduce the risk of infection.
Directions for use: Wash hands thoroughly before each use, and do not share salve. Use a sponge applicator or microbrush to apply. Keep lid closed tightly when not in use.
Pre-Procedure: Apply a thin layer to treated area to keep skin soft and workable for optimal deposit of pigment. Ideally, ask clients to begin this process about 3 days prior to treatment after some light exfoliation.
Post-Procedure: Wait 6 to 19 hours to allow the wound to close, lock in pigment, and let tissue repair naturally initiate. Cleanse the area with cotton gauze soaked in Membrane MicroTonic and then apply a thin layer of MicroBalm to the treated area.
For oilier skin types (face only) initial use should be at 6 hours post-procedure and there should be no further application after 24 hours.
For drier skin types (face) a small amount (roughly the size of a grain of rice) should be applied 2 to 3 times a day for the first 7 to 14 days of recovery.
For body art, use of MicroBalm can continue as long as needed.
MicroBalm is free from lanolin, petroleum, and synthetic ingredients. It is scented only with essential oils of lavender, chamomile, lemon and orange.
As with any new product, it is good practice to ‘spot-test’ before using on a fresh tattoo.
