The area seems to have dried out. Although a typical scab has not formed a rough skin has. It feels similar to what I remember dried Elmers glue feels like. There is no pain or discomfort of any kind. The skin it tight, and a little area has cracked due to ankle movement from walking.

I am putting lotion on the area daily. I want to get to the store and get some vitamin E lotion when I can.

Application One…………………………Application Two

(One Week)

When in comparison to applications one and two’s first week I see more similarities with the first application. The area is not nearly as red as with the second application. Although, this time around the area doesnt seem as dried out and scabby as the first application.

We will just have to see how the healing process goes from here.

 

Nuviderm At Home Tattoo Removal: Week One (Second Application) July 8, 2008

Second Application………………First Application

I am surprised. There has been no blistering during the second application. Instead of blistering it dried up and should start peeling soon. The red line outlining the tattoo will probably result in scarring, but we will see. The second application is much redder when compared to the first application, as of right now I cant say if thats a good or bad thing. There is sporadic sharp stinging in the treated area, but it only lasts for a matter of seconds and are few and far in between. The skin is dry and tight, and can be uncomfortable. The insides of the tattoo isn’t as dry as the edges, and will probably take a little longer to start peeling. Compared to week one during the first application the healing process up until now has been a lot less painful. I think the blistering has a lot to do with that. I can’t say I know exactly why I have not blistered this time around, but I did use 43% solution instead of around 50%, I was more careful when applying the TCA (not letting it dry in between layers, and less layers overall). This time around, instead of putting a cool cloth on the treated area after the application, I put it under a freezing cold tap (bathtub) Which might have deterred the development of blisters, who knows. I better knock on wood though, I’ll probably wake up tomorrow with blisters. ha.
