Nuviderm Review – Customer Complaint

January 14, 2010
Smiling customer service rep

At Nuviderm we do our best to handle complaints

Who can you trust when looking for a reputable company that sells an effective tattoo removal product? Unfortunately there is no rating system for all the different types of tattoo removal products and procedures and no ranking system on which company says what they mean, means what they say, honors their refund policy (if they have one), and in general treats their customers with courtesy, honesty and respect.

A good place to research all tattoo removal companies, their product effectiveness and  guarantees offered  is to monitor forums and read the essential parts of the company websites you are considering buying from.

Now, no company is going to please 100% of their customers because, human nature being what it is, it’s darn near impossible to please everyone, mistakes are made, and some people are just difficult to deal with no matter what the circumstances.

Tattoo removal is a slow process so Nuviderm Tattoo Removal offers a 6 month money back guarantee. This gives their customers enough time to see results.  They can determine if  the product is actually working to do what they want –  fade the tattoo enough for a cover up,  prefade before using laser to save money on fewer laser treatments or to continue with Nuviderm until the tattoo has completely disappeared.

According to Jonathan Scott, a retired tattoo artist and expert on tattoo removal products and techniques who currently consults for Nuviderm,  even though Nuviderm was the first home tattoo removal product to offer a 6 month guarantee, (much to the chagrin of their competitors)  they still occasionally receive complaints that the  time period is not long enough. Never mind that just about every other tattoo product on the market either has no guarantee, a 30 day guarantee or a so called guarantee that is so full of loop holes favoring the manufacturer that the effect is to have no guarantee at all.

Scott went on to say that any tattoo removal product that truly works will show results  within six months. Any tattoo removal product, especially the creams, which only offer 30 days are not being honest with the public. He noted that, in his opinion, there is no tattoo removal cream on the market that can actually remove a tattoo. He says they market to people uneducated in the ingredients needed to remove a tattoo and the time it takes to show results. Modern tattoo pigments and the depth they are deposited in the skin make a 30 day guarantee impossibly short. In his opinion it shows the manufacturer knows their product won’t work and reduces the chance they will actually refund any money.

Scott also emphasized that rubbing a cream onto a tattoo does nothing but give temporary peace of mind to the person using the product and fatten the bank account of the company manufacturing and selling the product. One such company with a short guarantee specializes in convincing phone in customers they have not given the product enough time to work and that they should buy another 1 or 2 month supply, not reminding them that the warranty period for all subsequent purchases began with the original purchase. By the time the customer realizes they have made no progress the warranty period is no longer in effect, in essence they have been had.

“At least we give our customers plenty of time to make a determination as to whether our product works for them or not”, he said.

He explained that skin pH effects the performance of Nuviderm. Customers with a higher than normal skin pH do not see the quality of results as someone whose skin pH is normal or a bit lower than average. Fortunately most people fall into the latter category and have no problem seeing results within the warranty period. This is borne out from the relatively low return rate of about 8% of all customers.

Tattoo removal, whatever the method used, is a time consuming process that requires patience and diligence.

Nuviderm Tattoo Removal – Useful Tips

Nuviderm tattoo removal helpful tips

Nuviderm Tattoo Removal is a liquid concentrate of a tattoo removal product that must be diluted, it should not be used straight out of the bottle. With each purchase is a precise set of instructions that explains the dilution process and how to tell when you have found the proper strength for you skin type.

Since Nuviderm home tattoo removal is a liquid it can drip or run from the area of the tattoo once it has been applied to the skin. One way to prevent “runners” is to apply a “barrier” around the area to be treated using a product such as Vaseline or any other skin lotion that covers the skin and will have a repelling effect so that any runners do not come in to contact with the skin.

Here’s an example. Say you have a tattoo on your arm between your elbow and your shoulder and you are sitting or standing when you apply Nuviderm to the tattoo you want to remove. There is a good chance the Nuviderm solution you apply will try to run down your arm. To prevent the Nuviderm solution from coming into contact with skin below the tattoo, apply the Vaseline or skin lotion below the tattoo in about a 2 inch wide swath which will protect the skin and prevent it from being affected in the removal process.

If you are removing a tattoo on your back or other location that requires that you lay on the floor or a bed while someone else applies the Nuviderm solution, have them completely encircle the tattoo with the Vaseline or lotion making sure they stay at least a quarter inch outside the area to be treated. If the Vaseline or lotion gets into the area to be treated it will prevent Nuviderm from having the desired effect on the tattoo, so be careful when applying the barrier coat.

Once the Nuviderm has had the desired effect as described in the directions, apply a previously mixed solution of baking soda and water to the treated area to instantly neutralize the Nuviderm solution. The baking soda solution should not be so thick that it is difficult to apply, but not so thin that it runs off the treated area, it needs to stay where you place it. Leave the mixture on for 2 or 3 minutes and rinse or wipe off. The baking soda mixture will be very soothing and ensure an even depth for the tattoo removal treatment.

Nuviderm is a cosmetic acid used hundreds of times every day by Doctors, health spas and individuals for various cosmetic reasons. It is also used to remove warts, stretch marks and other medically related treatments, sometimes in a Doctors office and sometimes as an at home remedy.

Even though the active ingredient in Nuviderm does not require a prescription it is always prudent to read and follow instructions carefully. If the instructions are not clear and easy  to understand, call or email for clarification. Any product powerful enough to remove tattoo ink should be taken seriously.

Nuviderm works and has a 92% satisfaction rate and a tattoo removal cost that is one of the lowest of all tattoo removal options. It has a track record and can be trusted to issue a refund to anyone dissatisfied with the product for whatever reason as long as they follow the easy to read and understand  refund instructions listed under the Guarantee tab of the website navigation links.

Trust Nuviderm – it works.

Nuviderm Tattoo Removal

As everyone knows, this is a blog about tattoo removal, specifically about the use of Nuviderm to remove a tattoo at a reasonable cost with a high degree of success – if you follow instructions –  instead of  using laser tattoo removal. In the course of every day we talk to people about their tattoos and sometimes we speak with tattoo artists about various matters related to tattoo application and removal.

Recently we spoke with Mary and Gabe who run Tattoonow in Easthampton, Massachusetts. They run  Tattoonow as a tattoo shop, but they also have a website, Tattoonow.com where they display their work  and the work of other tattoo artists and they have some of the finest artwork we’ve ever seen. They have formed associations with some of the finest tattoo artists in the world.

One thing we liked about the way they operate is from time to time they will bring in a laser tattoo removal technician with a machine so their customers can remove a piece they no longer like for a replacement piece or cover up. Some people just want to “clean the canvas” in a particular location with out replacing what was there.

We like the way they operate and the integrity of  their beliefs and the way they run their website and other tattoo related endeavors which include hosting tattoo conventions or gatherings where they provide seminars, workshops, discussion panels and, of course, custom tattooing.

Responsible tattoo education is the aim of the gatherings.

They’re last one, the Paradise Tattoo Gathering ran  Sept 17 – 20 in Hancock, Massachusetts .

When considering getting a tattoo always remember:

  • Make sure you like the design
  • Tattoo pigment is “permanent” and very difficult to remove
  • Check out your artists’ resume to make sure the skills are there
  • Make sure the tattoo shop is clean and proper protocols are followed

If you get tired of your tattoo and want to remove it you should:

  • Use laser if you can afford the cost
  • Make sure the laser clinic has state of the art equipment that can remove the pigment colors of your tattoo in a reasonable number of sessions
  • Use Nuviderm tattoo removal if you can’t afford laser
  • Read and follow instructions for a successful tattoo removal

Nuviderm reviews says checkout Tattoonow.com for great body art and for effective, affordable tattoo removal use Nuviderm.

Nuviderm works.

The Season for Tattoo Removal

November 24, 2009
Tattoo Removal Season

Tattoo Removal Season

Historically, tattoo removal has been a seasonal activity. Every year as the weather begins to warm people who have been contemplating tattoo removal begin the process in the spring and summer months. Why anyone would want to begin such a process when they are more likely to be wearing less clothing and possibly exposing the tattoo removal site for everyone to see is hard to understand. It must be a lack of planning.

If you have decided to remove a tattoo the best time to start is in the fall when temperatures begin to drop to more comfortable levels. Comfort should be one of the main considerations when starting a tattoo removal because tattoo removers that actually work will involve some discomfort, there is no way around it.

Here’s why…

After about 60 days the tattoo pigment used to create your tattoo has been effectively trapped by a network of connective tissue in the fibroblasts, a type of cell found in connective tissue that produces fibers such as collagen.  Fibroblasts are thought to  last the lifespan of the individual receiving the tattoo and that is what makes tattoos permanent. The tattoo pigment is so tightly bound to the connective tissues of the dermis (second layer of skin) that they could be considered a pigmented tissue graft much like a skin graft for a burn victim or an artery graft for a heart bypass patient. Man made, but permanent, and very difficult to reverse.

The only methods proven to remove tattoo pigment are Laser, IPL (intense pulsed light), Rejuvi, Cold Steel Surgery, Dermabrasion, Salabrasion and TCA. Laser, IPL, Cold Steel Surgery and Rejuvi are very expensive and painful. Dermabrasion and salabrasion involve the use of a grit (salt in the case of salabrasion) to sand or grind down the tissue holding the tattoo, a somewhat barbaric and painful experience. TCA tattoo removal gradually peels down to and removes tattoo ink over a period of months. Properly used, tca tattoo removal is virtually painless and leaves only  minor changes in skin pigment, especially in light skinned people. The darker the skin the greater the chance of hypopigmentation which is a lightening of skin color at the treated area. Scarring can occur when used at very high strengths, but scarring can and does occur with Laser, IPL and Surgery. An unfortunate fact of tattoo removal is that all effective tattoo removal methods carry with them the risk of scarring.

Tattoo removal creams have become popular because they promise no discomfort and no scarring, but they are a joke and a ripoff and companies that sell such concoctions should be considered the modern day version of the  “Snake Oil Salesmen” of the 1800’s when con men sold “Tonics” to cure every common ailment of the day. These creams are nothing but skin fade creams – they fade skin pigment which is located in the epidermis (top layer of skin) and cannot reach and would have no effect on tattoo pigment in the dermis (second layer of skin).

There is one so called tattoo removing “Balm” that is a combination of common makeup ingredients combined with skin pigment faders and grit used with a battery powered sander. It’s the sander and the grit in the cream that does the actual “removing”, but it would take years and thousands of dollars to sand down a tattoo with this product. You would be better off spending the money on laser.

Nuviderm TCA is the easy, effective and affordable alternative to laser tattoo removal and cooler weather is the perfect time to begin a tattoo removal. One ounce of Nuviderm concentrate has the ink removing power of up to $1000.00 or more of laser treatments. Nuviderm reviews and testimonials from past and current customers prove Nuviderm works. Backed by a 6 month guarantee, Nuviderm has a 93% satisfaction rate among those who have used it, to our knowledge, the highest success rate in the Do It Yourself tattoo removal industry.

Give Nuviderm a try , with our guarantee you have nothing to lose.

Nuviderm Reviews – Temporary Tattoos for Halloween

October 21, 2009
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 Home Tattoo Removal – The Correct Method

September 29, 2009

Follow instructions for proper results- for tanning beds and tattoo removal

Follow instructions for proper results- for tanning beds and tattoo removal

OK. You’ve done your homework and you’ve reached the conclusion that Nuviderm is the right product for your tattoo removal.

You place your order, wait 4 or 5  days, and it arrives.  You tear open the package, read the instructions, and begin your treatment.

You wake up the next morning and, hey wait a minute, that tattoo is still there!?!

First thing you should do is sit down and re-read the instructions.

OK, it takes anywhere up to 8 – 12 or more treatment sessions to fade or remove your tattoo. You calm down and continue your treatment program.

That brings us to the photo of the tanning bed.

If used improperly the UV rays emitted by a simple tanning bed can have the same detrimental effects on your skin as real sunlight.  Sporadic use will not have the desired effect and to frequent use can be harsh to the skin. The same is true with Nuviderm.

It often requires 8 to 12 or even 14 treatments for large tattoos before the ink is gone or radically faded. Read the instructions. Do people really believe that a deeply embedded tattoo will just disappear without any effort? After all it was meant to be PERMANENT which would indicate that it will not be easy to remove.

Or you could change to a tattoo cream, pay hundreds more and never rid yourself of that tattoo.

Now you’ve gone through 5 or 6 treatments and you’re not satisfied for some reason. Out of luck? Nope!

We believe so much in Nuviderm that we offer a 6 month Money-Back Guarantee. You can read about it right here.

We’re serious about tattoo removal and we know you are too. As professional tattoo removal specialists, we’re thoroughly familiar with all of today’s options. We offer Nuviderm because we know it works.

Nuviderm isn’t perfect, but there are 2 alternatives to removal – very painful and much, much more expensive laser or easy to use, refreshing on the skin but basically worthless tattoo cream. We give you an effective compromise between the two.

The choice is yours…choose wisely.

But don’t take my word for it. Find out for yourself, risk free. Order today.
