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.

 

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.

 

Nuviderm At Home Tattoo Removal: Week Three (First Application) April 22, 2008

Day 19 V. Day 1

Most of the scabs have peeled off by now. The tattoo seems to be brighter and darker than it was before, as you can see in the before and after picture. Most of the skin surrounding the tattoo is just a little pinker than my normal skin color. Half of my tattoo has a distinct dark red outlining as well. I remember reading that after doing a initial TCA peel the tattoo will look darker and brighter since the ink is closer to the outter layers of the epidermis, that sounds good to me, I’ll stick with that.

It should be another couple of weeks before I am able to apply my second application of TCA.
