Below I have listed some general aftercare methods for branding and scarification. I will explain care in more detail upon a consultation or booked appointment.

Please use discretion when selecting your method of aftercare as the more irritation you create on the wounds the higher risk or infection and increased and prolonged pain. P icking and scrubbing your wound can illicit a stronger immune response, giving your body more opportunity to react or over react and create more scar tissue. Please be aware that every body will scar differently and occasionally no amount of skin irritation can guarantee a raised scar.

Method #1 , fastest and least painful healing method.

  • Clean the wound with soap and water twice a day and apply a bandage until the wound is completely healed.

Method #2 , slightly prolonged healing and can be somewhat painful

  • Clean the wound with soap and water twice a day
  • While cleaning remove any scabbing that may have formed using either clean hands or a toothbrush soaked in peroxide.
  • Apply a bandage until the wound is completely healed.

Method #3 , longest healing, very painful, increases risk for infection, not always recommended.

  • Clean the wound with soap and water twice a day
  • While cleaning remove any scabbing that may have formed using either clean hands or a toothbrush soaked in peroxide.
  • Apply an irritant such as sesame oil, 3% hydrogen peroxide, lemon juice or salt.. This will aggravate the wound and ideally increase scarring. Many irritants can be applied and their results will vary.
  • Apply a bandage until the wound is completely healed.

Aftercare products

For smaller pieces plain glycerine soaps should suffice
For larger pieces or people with weakened immune systems I recommend using an anti-bacterial product such as Technicare, Dial Anti-bacterial soap or even tea-tree oil soap.
