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).

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

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.
