The red isn’t as vibrant today. There is no pain at this point. Last application I was worried right when I saw how red the area was after applying Nuviderm, and that is not the case here, yet anyways. I will do a side by side comparison at 4-Days to show the differences between the previous applications and this one.

I was worried to take a hot shower this morning and the pain that was come from it, but it didn’t hurt at all. This differs from the previous treatments too. During the previous applications, if I covered the area with a blanket it would be somewhat uncomfortable, and warm/hot water running over it was painful; so far so good I think. The changes I have seen already at day two look to be positive.

Update

I think I spoke too soon. It’s been about 5 hours since the last photo. The area is becoming redder and there appears to be slight small blistering.  The area is not painful.

I also included a closer shot of the bottom area of the tattoo. You can see the slight blistering, and the funky texture of my skin currently. The color also seems to be getting darker (as it did with both my previous applications).

Nuviderm At Home Tattoo Removal: Day One (Third Application) March 29, 2009

I finally broke down and applied the third layer of Nuviderm today. I did the application quite different this time around.  Instead of sticking with 50 some percent strength like before I increased the strength per layer. Also instead of putting on 12-20 layers of TCA I put on 3. Instead of leaving it one for 3-5 additional minutes like before I washed the TCA off after I finished the third layer.

The First layer I applied was 46% strength.

The Second layer I applied was between 46% and 56%.

The Third layer I applied was 56% strength.

Surprisingly the area didn’t really frost when I was applying the TCA. It also didn’t sting much at all when I was applying the peel which was different then the first two application I did. After rinsing the area with cold water the stinging started.

Once I finished the application the area started to slowly frost. I had a hard time getting the legs frosted, similar problem that I had during the second application.

It has been about a half an hour since I applied the solution. The stinging has completely stopped.

Supplies! (Small Glass, Nuviderm, Measuring spoon (don’t know where the dropper went), Vaseline, alcohol wipe (provided by Nuviderm) and Neosporin. I also used Q-tips -Not Pictured-

-I used the Vaseline around the tattoo to help prevent dripping.

The last three pictures were AFTER the application of TCA.

***HAHA I have to share my thoughts on this one!

So, Nuviderm has an ‘official’ wordpress blog now. Apparently they are trying to get everyone to ask their questions to this site. Now, what I find hilarious is I am curious how many of the Nuviderm reps have actually used the product???

Personally, I would rather talk to Joe Schmo who used the product for advice than some corporate employee whose paid to sell their product.

Hmmm…Just had to throw in my two-cents.

And…I did post the ACTUAL directions Nuviderm sent me…I did not just make those up (Previous Blog Entry).

**Thank you everyone who has followed my Nuviderm journey so far!**

UPDATE:

After about 5 hours the frosty white turned to pink. It looks and feels like a bad sunburn. Not painful. The area is warm to the touch.
