Is this blog really that confusing?? November 7, 2008

So I really don’t know if this blog is really that confusing to follow along? If I got a dollar for every time I received a comment requesting before and after pictures, a current photo, or having someone give me advice on how to use Nuviderm before I get started (is it really that tough to see that I have been tracking this process for almost 7 months now?) I also posted the exact instructions that Nuviderm sent me, I am very aware what the instructions state. My blog is current and before/after pictures are mostly on every single posting I have posted.

The URL below should show ALL the Nuviderm blogs at once….I really hope this helps, and if you are still confused…please don’t waste both of our time by making a pointless comment requesting the previously stated items.

I hate to be mean…but really? This shouldn’t be that complicated.

I am more than happy to answer any questions or to share advice, but please try and read through every post before commenting… Thanks.

Nuviderm At Home Tattoo Removal: Updated Before and After November 4, 2008

April 3 2008 (Before Nuviderm)…….Before using Mederma…………..November 4 2008

beforepictattoobeforemederma111_4_20081

I have to apologize, the lighting in all my pictures seem to be different, which show the color differently. But I hope they can still give you an idea of the entire healing and application process.

The black is coming out of the tattoo. Unfortunately the area is really scarred.  The faded parts of the tattoo are scarred and started to turn brown in color. I have been using Mederma the last couple of months, about 2-4 times a day. I have seen much improvement in the overall lighting of the area.  I am really hoping I can eventually turn the whole area a mono-tone sort of color, and hopefully be able to get it covered up by this next summer.  I I probably will apply another application of Nuviderm, but it wont be for a while longer. I really want to make sure my skin is healed more before re-applying. I have a another refill of silverdene left, so I figure why not.

 

Nuviderm At Home Tattoo Removal: Update! 3 months (second application) September 30, 2008

Let me begin by apologizing for how long it has taken me to post an update. Between packing, moving, unpacking and school; I just haven’t had the time to do much of anything.

The scab that formed over the tattoo completely came off (with the help of tubing on the lake) the second week of August.  The area hasn’t hurt really at all since I’ve gone to the doctor.

The area is scarred, but there is noticeable areas of fading and even areas where the outlining looks like it has completely faded away.  I am going to start putting scar cream on it in hopes to lessen the scarring.  I do plan on applying another layer of Nuviderm, but i am going to wait quite a while before I do so.  Luckily I have one more refill of silver sulfa at the pharmacy which i am going to get before I apply the third application of Nuviderm.

I will keep updating, but they are going to be more spread out, since its going to take a while to see any major differences.

Start of Healing (after Doctor’s Visit)—————————————–>

—————————————————————————>

——————————————————————>9/7/2008

I apologize, I missed about a week in between the second to last photo and the most current photo. It wasn’t a very eventful week though, the area scabbed, and this week it started to peel. There is no pain anymore, and the area is completley scabbed, and there is no oozing of any kind this or last week. The area itches. I cant really tell how faded the tattoo has become, but I’m anxious to see the results. I don’t think the area is going to be a huge scar, its healing up pretty nicely, so we’ll just have see.

***Day 5 With Prescriptions

So far so good.  The picture is kind of foggy, but o well.  The area doesn’t really hurt at all, it does itch, and sting at times.  Not much to share today…Healing is going good…I really hope it doesn’t look too bad once healed completley.

***Day 4 with prescriptions
Its looking pretty good today. I can tell that it looks a lot healthier than before I went to the doctor. It doesn’t hurt too bad at all, the treated area as well as the area around it itches really bad though.
Free Laser Tattoo Removal?
I just got a comment, which I thought was worth sharing…Especially anyone in the Southern California area.
Ian Says: Hello,
I just found your blog as well. I work for a laser removal company in Southern California called Dr. TATTOFF. If you or any of your readers happen to be in Southern California on Wednesday, July 30, we’re doing free laser tattoo removal all day long for anyone who comes into our Irvine, CA clinic. This is a community service we call Dr. TATTOFF’s Operation INK-OFF which we perform once a year at each of our three clinics, so potentially a person could have their tattoo completely removed for free if they came to each INK-OFF over the course of a couple years, or they could go to the events and supplement them with paid treatments to have their tattoo removed much faster.

Here are the details:

WHO: Any new patients who want free tattoo removal.
WHAT: Up to 6″ sq. laser tattoo removal. Patients treated on a first come, first served basis.
WHEN: Wednesday, July 30, 8am-8pm.
WHERE: Dr. TATTOFF, 15751 Rockfield Blvd, Ste 120, Irvine, CA 92618
WHY: Because everyone deserves something for free!

Feel free to spread the word – it’s our pleasure to help as many people out as possible by providing them with free laser tattoo removal on that day.

For more information, you can call 888-TATT-OFF (828-8633) or visit us online at http://www.DrTATTOFF.com.

If you’d like to be added to our mailing list to be informed of upcoming INK-OFF events and other promotions and news (including where new Dr. TATTOFF clinics are opening later this year and next year) please send a request to info@drtattoff.com

Best of luck with your removal,
Ian

I would just have to say, to keep in mind that one laser treatment will not completley remove a tattoo, be prepared for many treatments.  Second laser tattoo removal also does have a risk of scarring and skin discoloration.  If anyone is able to attend this, and receive free laser removal; you should really share your experience with me, I would love to hear how it went.

 

Nuviderm At Home Tattoo Removal: Week Three/Day 3 (Second Application) July 24, 2008

*** Day Three on prescriptions

The area is feeling much better, which I am very happy about. It does also itch really bad. All and all there really isn’t much to blog about today. The bandage this morning looked just like the one yesterday, so I’m not going to post that either. I am going to the doctor again here in an hour, hopefully everything will go fine. I also stopped using the pain killers, they made me extremely nauseous, and gave me headaches.

Update:

I just got back from the Doctor’s office.  I ended up getting a tetanus shot.  I have another scheduled appointment for August 4th.  I have been told to keep up with the silver sulfa for the next week.  I have 3 days left for the oral antibiotics, the nurse gave me 3 more 75mg Levaquin pills to take once I used up my prior prescription.  I was told that next week, if If the burn is looking better I can stop the use of the silver sulfa, uncover the area and let it dry out to scab.  We’ll see how things are looking next week.

A little bothersome though, the doctor recommended a skin graft.  Its more for cosmetic reasons, she’s really worried that my ankle is just going to look terrible after all this.  We are going to see how it looks at the next doctor office, and then we are going to look into skin grafting options.
