Using Aquaphor Post Op HT for quicker healing?

Recommended Posts

I am now 3 days post op and was wondering what you guys think of using Aquaphor to make the healing process go even faster? I have a full sleeve tattoo and my Tattoo artist had me use this to help heal post treatment. I was thinking of just very gently applying a thin layer to the grafted area. Any pros or cons? I'm thinking you when you guys read the ingredients you will say no...but it worked amazingly on my tattoo.


Active Ingredients: Petrolatum


Inactive Ingredients: Mineral Oil, Ceresin, Lanolin Alcohol, Panthenol, Glycerin, Bisabolol
