Medical Supplies » SkinLock Hydrogel
SkinLock is a new, innovative solution for immediate care of a fresh tattoo. It was developed through the collaboration of a medical physician and a tattoo artist to create a truly revolutionary product that achieves harmony between creativity and medicine.
A unique hydrogel formulation meets medical standards as it helps to reduce drainage from the tattoo and promote healing. With application of SkinLock Sealant Spray, the hydrogel solidifies to form a thin, transparent, protective coating that eliminates the need for secondary dressings. This helps to keep dirt and bacteria out and keep the area clean to prevent infection.
Protect your client and your art immediately after the tattoo process by applying a thin layer of SkinLock followed by 1-2 pumps of SkinLock Sealant Spray. The sealing process occurs quickly and continues to strengthen for 30 minutes after the application. SkinLock stays on the skin for 2 hours, and then can be washed off and regular aftercare regimen recommended to clients can begin.
Each SkinLock kit contains 24 x 5 gram foil packs of Tattoo Hydrogel, and one 1 oz. spray bottle of Sealant.
Each foil pack of Hydrogel is enough to cover an approximate 10” x 6” surface area. The spray bottle of Sealant should last through the entire supply of Hydrogel contained in the kit, and then some!
SkinLock maintains a moist environment, while still allowing the skin and tattoo to breathe to enable healing. A wound that is not allowed to breathe is at risk to become a breeding ground for infection. And freshly tattooed skin that becomes too dry can result in the development of a crust which could damage the skin, the tattoo, and cause ink loss.
Since SkinLock forms a flexible coating on the skin, it is ideal for areas, such as elbows or hands, which are difficult to dress with traditional bandages.
A medically safe and sound treatment, SkinLock is also petroleum-free and manufactured with only USP grade ingredients that meet the highest standards of quality.
* NOTE: Sealant will cause stinging sensation for a short period (one to two mins) due to alcohol content.
