Had my right knee done 6 days ago and decided to try dermalize since it's a tricky place to heal. Artist applied cling film and I went off and did a few things and got home about 4 hours later, showered and gave the knee a thorough wash and wrapped with a few peices of dermalize with the help of my hubby. First night went well, my knee swelled like a bitch and a lot of plasma accumulated and I sprung a leak by morning so I had to wash and rewrap, but it was surprisingly comfortable to sleep on and way less sensitive than my previous experiences. By end of day 1 post tattoo I noticed I did a shoddy job of rewrapping and didn't overlap enough, so had broken the seal right where 2 peices joined, so washed it up and rewrapped again - a lot more carefully. Left the dermalize on for the next few days and went about my business, not having to baby the area and not having to wash, dry etc was fantastic - set and forget, no worries about kids dirty fingers and pets dirty paws, no irritation from rubbing and clothes sticking. I could bend my knee and straighten it and the seal stayed intact. Only drawback is I got a little 'rash' on the perimeters of the dermalize - I'm guessing due to pulling of the skin, a little itchy and raised but not too bad. After 6 days the knee looked like a weird prune due to the dermalize stretching during my initial swelling and then crinkled as the knee shrunk. Started noticing little hairline cracks in the tattoo under the wrap. Took the wrap off in the shower and it looks healed, still a little peeling to go but no scabs and it looks amazing for being so fresh. I had a small tattoo done 3 weeks prior with just black line work on my shin and my knee already looks better - I always tend to scab a little and take a long time to heal. It was so easy and fuss free, I'm never going back to the traditional way of healing again.
