This last application was easy to slack on the updates because the healing process was quick and uneventful (just how I like it). Literally after the first week blog-post the scab peeled off (with the help of tubing and jet-skiing) within the following 1-2 weeks (from week 1 application 3 post). There was no swelling, pain, additional scarring, blistering, or discharge of any sort.
I am going to wait to do a fourth application until the weather cools down (I dont want to be sporting shorts and/or capris during the healing process).
I wanted to apologize about the lack of updates for this application. Being that I’ll be back at school for the fourth application I think it should be easier for me to keep up with updates and not put it off to enjoy the wonderful weather outside!
I hope everyone is having a great summer!

I have a hard time getting the lighting the same for each picture. There has definitely been fading since the third application of Nuviderm. I adjusted the colors and contrast in the pictures a little bit to make it easier to tell the extent of fading. I think these pictures look closer like what the area actually looks like versus having to struggle with the varying lighting situation from picture to picture.
My skin does have a wrinkley texture to it currently (treated area only). This may or may not lessen with time and/or with a cover-up tattoo. We’ll just have to see.
