Nuviderm Reviews – Temporary Tattoos for Halloween

Temporary Halloween Tattoos

Temporary Halloween Tattoos

Temporary tattoos that are applied with water fade after a few days.  Usually, these are applied to children for fun  or adults who may want to try wearing a temporary tattoo before going for the real thing. Some can look quite real and can give a hint as to what reactions they will generate from  friends or family members.

Most contain cosmetically approved additives approved for use on the skin, but in the past, alerts have been issued for foreign made  temporary tattoos because they are not labeled with a mandated ingredient list. Also, past imports of henna products for skin use have been banned because of no mandated labels. Henna is approved for use as a hair dye and not as a skin dye for tattoos. Black and blue  henna are somewhat suspect since natural henna normally produces a reddish brown tint. These black “henna” tattoos contain p-phenylenediamine other wise known as coal tar and are unsafe for long term contact with skin, especially children.

Always make sure  any temporary tattoo given to your kids comes in a package printed with a list of ingredients. We don’t want something fun for the kids to be harmful.

As for the ingredients that go into making real tattoo pigment,  always ask the shop owner or artist giving you the tat what’s in the pigment. These days there is usually nothing to worry about, but it never hurts to be safe.

Nuviderm – Does It Work?

October 19, 2009
Nuviderm Tattoo Removal

Nuviderm Tattoo Removal

Tattoo removal has come a long way in the last 10 years, there have been some advancements and there have been more than a few steps backwards.

The advances include greatly improved laser tattoo removal techniques, IPL, tattoo displacement products such as Rejuvi and refinement in the use of TCA products like Nuviderm.

Backward steps include the so called tattoo removal creams or gels that do nothing but fade skin pigment and what I would refer to lateral moves, not forward and not backward. Those would include the products that combine tattoo removal creams with exfoliation. The exfoliation is an improvement on just rubbing a skin fade cream onto your skin but  exfoliation isn’t the most efficient way to remove a tattoo. I would compare it to ocean waves pounding into the shear rock cliffs of some island in the Pacific Ocean. Eventually that rock will be worn down to sand and create a nice sandy beach, but who has time to wait for that to happen?.

When TCA was first medically tested as a possible method of tattoo removal the techniques the Doctors used were not nearly as refined as current techniques. Over the past few years the satisfaction rate for TCA has risen to about 93% of all users. That’s not perfect , but it does prove there is an in home tattoo removal product that is being used successfully every day by people just like you. One ounce of Nuviderm has the tattoo removal power of $750 – $1,000 worth of laser treatments. In times like these that’s a significant cost savings. Plus, Nuviderm is guaranteed…but not all laser removal clinics guarantee their work.

Nuviderm works, it’s guaranteed and it puts you in control of your tattoo removal process. What more could you want?

Tattoo Removal Options – IPL

October 13, 2009
IPL can also be used for Tattoo Removal

IPL can also be used for Tattoo Removal

Although tattoo removal is not high on the list of researchers looking for ways to improve the human condition, there are at least three high tech methods of tattoo removal including Laser, Skin Seeding and IPL.

Pioneered by Dr. Patrick Bitter, IPL tattoo removal is becoming a popular method of tattoo removal among Dermatologists and skin care professionals. IPL emits high intensity light pulses (not lasers) to penetrate the skin and do away with tattoo pigment. As a result of this process there may be some scarring involved along with dark or light spots on the skin depending on the skin color of the patient. In many cases the light or dark spots fade with time.

IPL therapy is not the same as laser therapy. IPL sends short bursts of intense light through a prism into the skin and causes the tattoo pigment to break up and be absorbed by the body. It is said the farther from the heart the tattoo is the longer the healing process when using IPL to remove a tattoo.
Light skinned people of European descent with dry, non-oily skin make the best candidates for ipl. Dark skinned nationalities have a higher chance of hypopigmentation of the treated area.

The average professional tattoo requires 5 or more treatments with dark pigmented tattoo requiring the most number of treatments. The treated area swells and turns a pale color immediately following treatment, but the swelling subsides quickly followed by blistering and scab formation. Skin tones return to normal after about two weeks and the treated area should be protected from the suns’ rays for six weeks following the treatment.

Overall IPL is very safe with less than a 2% chance of scarring or pigmentation change.

IPL is new and has yet to reach its full potential.  If high tech methods are to expensive for you at this time Nuviderm offers an effective and affordable method of tattoo removal as evidenced by this testimonial:

November 8, 2008
Hi,
Just wanted to drop a line to let the staff know that I’m into my 4th or 5th treatment on all five of my small tattoos, and Nuviderm is working great! I could not be happier. I regret ALL of my ugly lapses of judgment and thought I would have to spend thousands on laser removal. Obviously, not true. One of the ones on my chest is almost completely gone, and the others have significantly faded or broken apart thanks to Nuviderm. Thank you sooo very much, I am a complete believer!!! Regret getting my tattoos, but do not regret taking a chance with your Nuviderm tattoo removal system.
