Tattoo Removal Review – New Technology

New, easy to remove tattoo ink

Tattoo Removal Review - Easier Tattoo Removal

It is estimated that more than 45 million Americans have at least 1 tattoo. Recent polling indicates that approximately 50% of all men and women under the age of 25 have a tattoo, but about 20% of all people with a tattoo regret getting it and are looking for a form of tattoo removal.

Laser technology has made significant advances in recent years, but it still requires several visits and hundreds to thousands of dollars to remove a tattoo via laser, depending on the size and colors used in the design. Nuviderm has never made a secret of the fact that we always recommend laser removal if it is within your budget and we, of coarse, recommend Nuviderm if Laser is to expensive.

If you read our blog with any regularity you will also know that we constantly warn against using so called tattoo removal creams because they don’t work, cost to much for what you get (soft skin where you apply it) and tattoo cream manufacturer warranties are either non existent or so full of loop holes as to be worthless. Tattoo removal creams are nothing more than a basic cosmetic with skin pigment fading chemicals included to fade the skin above the tattoo, but not the tattoo itself.

Freedom2Ink

Well, help is on the way although the pace may be a bit slow. A company called Freedom2Ink has been working on developing a new form of tattoo ink that requires about one half  the number of laser treatments for complete ink clearance.  They call this new tattoo pigment technology Particle Encapsulation and Enhancement (P2E) . Basically, the ink is encapsulated in small spheres that can be placed under the skin with  currently used tattoo equipment. The only difference is the ease with which it can be removed using current laser technology .

The bad news – after 10 years of development they have only perfected this technology using a biodegradable black pigment. Apparently  the the material used to make the encapsulating spheres is not compatible with currently used pigments and carriers so they estimate it will be several more years before they have a full color line available for use by the general tattoo loving public.

How It Works

The basic idea behind this product is that the biodegradable ink is micro-encapsulated in a plastic polymer bead. When the the laser strikes the bead it cracks open and the ink is released into the dermis where the tattoo resides and as a consequence of the release the body’s own natural immune system will help breakdown and dispose of the ink. The bead itself is hypoallergenic and will cause no allergic reaction or side effect.

Current tattoo pigments are not biodegradable, as seen here, which requires that they be repeatedly blasted by a laser over a much longer period of time in order to achieve maximum clearance. Many of the currently used pigments, the lighter colors in particular, are very difficult to remove and complete clearance using laser is impossible for many colors.

That is where Nuviderm has an advantage over current laser technology. Because Nuviderm is based on a medium strength cosmetic acid it removes all colors with equal efficiency, color makes no difference.

New Ink Specifics

  • Aftercare should be managed the same way, no special care is needed beyond what it normally done with current ink pigments tattoos.
  • Freedom2Ink is a premium ink and will therefore cost significantly more. This price will be passed on the the consumer.
  • The ink will be packaged in 5 ml bottles (1/6 ounce).
  • Tattoo removal costs using laser will be reduced by up to 50%
  • It is permanent yet removable
  • Colors claimed to be made from the highest quality FDA approved USP grade ingredients.

The Nuviderm Blog

Unlike other at home tattoo removal products, Nuviderm is concerned as much about new developments in tattoo removal as we are in selling our own product. I you go through our blog entries you will see several entries about new technologies on the horizon as well as what to avoid when purchasing a home use tattoo removal product. We are constantly researching new ways to improve tattoo removal techniques and report on these new technologies to our readers.

How many of our competitors encourage the use of other products when they know a better method of tattoo removal exists? None.

Nuviderm has alway encouraged the use of laser removal as the gold standard for tattoo removal. Unfortunately most people with tattoo regret cannot afford to use laser,  in which case we recommend Nuviderm.

New Tattoo Removal Product?

New and Improved Tattoo Removal Product

New and Improved Tattoo Removal Product

Invention and innovation – also known as progress, has been somewhat lacking in the field of at home tattoo removal, but we hear rumors of a new tattoo removal product in the works that will set a new standard for the industry.

Rumored to be a cream, this new product actually penetrates through the epidermis to the dermis where tattoo pigment lives and actually “pulls” the pigment out. Unlike other creams on the market today, it is not a skin pigment fade cream masquerading as a tattoo removal cream. This new product reportedly removes tattoo pigment without effecting skin pigment.

Also, it is able to be used on tattoos as young as 30 days old allowing those suffering from next day tattoo regret the ability to start the removal process much sooner than any other product currently on the market.

Hopefully this new product will prove to be as effective as we’ve heard. We will definitely keep you apprised of new information as it becomes available.

Until this new product is ready for the growing tattoo removal market use Nuviderm. There is no perfect tattoo remover, they all have their drawbacks – some admit their imperfections and others lie. Nuviderm may not be perfect, but at the current time the only alternatives are laser, which is costly, painful and includes the chance of scarring. The other most popular alternative is the  variety of creams that promise no pain, no scarring… no problems !! They neglect to tell you they don’t remove tattoo pigment. Some give the illusion of working by including a dermabrasion device  with the product, but a dermabrasion device could be used with water and achieve the same results. Don’t let their marketing fool you.

It is best not to get a tattoo unless you know for sure it is something you will want to live with the rest of your life.

Nuviderm is a cosmetic acid known as TCA. Used properly it will remove most tattoos. If you don’t like the results you can return the unused portion of the product for a refund within 6 months of the original purchase.
