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.


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 Fade and Tattoo Removal : Lesson 1

September 15, 2009
Nuviderm Fade and Tattoo Removal says do your homework

Nuviderm Fade and Tattoo Removal says do your homework

We are always getting mail from people asking questions about Nuviderm tattoo removal – specific questions about the removal process, advice on use of Nuviderm during pregnancy, while breast feeding, best time to begin a removal, or the minimum age of a tattoo before using Nuviderm tattoo remover.
This morning we received a question about removing natural skin pigment forming a birthmark and using Nuviderm to remove it.

Here is the question:


I have a birthmark on which I have already tried laser in an attempt at removal. Will Nuviderm work on my birthmark?

Thank you,




TCA, the active ingredient in Nuviderm is used every day by Cosmetic Surgeons and Dermatologists to remove fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, remove or reduce acne scars and some birth marks. Since we don’t know the specifics of your birthmark pigmentation we suggest you contact a Dermatologist for professional advice on using TCA for your specific situation.
There may be a skin fade cream that might help. Fade creams inhibit or stop melanin production and may work for you in this instance. Fade creams have their place, but as tattoo removal agents they do not and cannot reach the dermis layer of skin where the tattoo pigment resides. This is something else you may consult a Physician about.

Nuviderm Customer Service


The reasons for blogging about this are:

1). We always give straight, no B.S. answers to our customers or potential customers. Most of our competitors would not have responded and the remainder would have tried to make a sale without knowing all the facts about the birthmark. We make referrals all the time when we think there might be a better way or if more information is required to make an informed decision.

2). We suggested that possibly a skin fade cream might work, but to also consult with her physician about this before proceeding because of the many different types of birthmarks. Some would be unaffected by melanin inhibiting chemicals used in skin fade creams just as tattoo pigment us unaffected by skin fade creams claiming to be tattoo removal creams.

When researching tattoo removal don’t fall for all the hype on the internet about all the different products available.  Laser works, IPL works, Nuviderm works and is the affordable, effective alternative to laser. Dermabrasion  and  Salabrasion also work but are very slow, painful and will definitely leave a scar. So called tattoo removal creams and gels DO NOT WORK! They fade skin pigment, not tattoo pigment.

For cost effective results backed by a 6 month guarantee use Nuviderm. It is the only Doctor tested and approved Home Tattoo Removal product on the market.

Try Nuviderm, it works.

Tattoo Removal – Managing Expectations

September 10, 2009

Tattoo removal reality tortoise vs. Tattoo removal expectations hare

Tattoo removal reality tortoise vs. Tattoo removal expectations hare

If you’re looking for a one-visit solution to tattoo removal you need to adjust to the reality of a longer term tattoo removal process. Expectations of easy tattoo removal often leads to giving up without really trying.  Cold steel surgery, which involves removing the tattoo using a scalpel to physically cut it out of your arm, leg, chest, breast or wherever it’s located, is the only way to wake up with a tattoo and go to bed at the end of the day without one.

But what if the idea of having local anesthesia injected into some sensitive part of your body with a hypodermic needle, followed by someone slicing and cutting through multiple layers of skin with a sharp object bothers you? You have a safe and mostly painless alternative.

Nuviderm, the chemical-based liquid is formulated from the same substance that is currently used to treat acne scars and to perform beautifying face peels every day.

But while Nuviderm will remove or severely fade your tattoo, regardless of the colored pigments used, it doesn’t happen overnight.

When you received your tattoo the ink was injected into the second layer of skin, that’s what makes it permanent. You must first peel through the 1st layer of skin which takes 3 to 5 treatment cycles with each cycle lasting for 3 to 6 weeks.

Once you have peeled through the 1st layer you will begin peeling out the ink in the second layer of skin one thin layer at a time until the tattoo has faded enough for a cover up or is completely gone. The entire process usually takes several months. There is no fast way to remove a tattoo, even Laser removal takes several months.

Dermal abrasion and most other solutions take just as long, or longer, and come with far too many risks (and pain) to suit most people.

Best of all, with Nuviderm, you can do it all yourself! Each order comes with complete and easy-to-understand instructions. And no matter how thoroughly you search through the package, you won’t find any sharp objects!

Check out Nuviderm. It’s rapidly becoming the preferred solution to removing tattoos.

Nuviderm Tattoo Removal vs. Laser

September 9, 2009
A Nuviderm Faded Tattoo Compared to a Laser Faded Tattoo

A Nuviderm Faded Tattoo Compared to a Laser Faded Tattoo

Today’s blog records an individuals 7th laser tattoo removal treatment using her own words and photographs to describe what it’s like to undergo laser treatment for the removal of  a tattoo.

We begin the story on the day of the 7th session with a photo of the tattoo after 6 previous laser treatments followed by comments and photos of the tattoo after the seventh session.

The reason for showing a laser removal on a blog that advocates the removal of tattoos with Nuviderm TCA is for the purpose of comparison. A laser beam creates a severe burn, reaching temperatures up to 900 degrees Fahrenheit in the dermis and surrounding tissue, not a pleasant feeling. It literally creates a micro explosion when the laser beam strikes the tattoo pigment. That’s why, as you read the story below, the young lady is concerned that the topical pain killer applied before the procedure has not had enough time to fully deaden the skin before the procedure begins.

By comparison, Nuviderm gradually peels thin layers of skin beginning with the epidermis, or top layer of skin, down to the dermis, or second layer of skin, where the ink pigment resides. It doesn’t involve the pain of laser removal and it is certainly far cheaper. A one ounce bottle of Nuviderm has the ink removing power of $750 – $1000.00 or more of laser treatments and costs $39.95. Nuviderm can sometimes blister the skin and itch like crazy as the skin peels away, but that is nothing compared to what you are about see and read in the story below.

Laser is the high tech way of removing a tattoo so people naturally assume the high cost means it’s better, safer, less painful, less likely to leave a scar and more likely to work. Well, on all counts the preceding statement is wrong because, as we all know, sometimes the best way to get something done is also the simplest and least expensive.

“On Friday at 5pm I had my seventh tattoo removal appointment. I was a little nervous because the numbing cream had not been on my skin for as long as usual. She was extra punctual this time and I had been counting on those extra 15 – 20 minutes in the waiting room. Sure enough, it hurt a lot more this time than last time. Above is my first tattoo, which I got in 1993. I have never been happy with it. I always had a different vision for it and it never looked like I wanted it to. My dislike for this tattoo is what initiated my reconsideration of having any tattoos at all. This is how it looked on Friday during my lunch break, a few hours before the seventh treatment”.“This is Friday night. After the laser, the tattoo gets a thick coat of triple antibiotic ointment, then a cold pack, then a wrap. This photo was taken at home after the ice pack melted. The ankle tattoo always blisters pretty badly. I think its the location. None of the other tattoos blister like that and I am quite thankful. It’s really nasty and sensitive. This photo was taken just when I was going to remove the wrap and noticed some ooze. I figured you’d want to see it, so…

“This is how it looked Saturday. Know what I did on Saturday? Worked. Eight hours of overtime. It was actually kind of fun because the guy I share an office with wasn’t there so Alex let me borrow his small speakers and I played music all day. It was kind of great. I got a lot done.”

“The next tattoo photo is pretty gross, so to lessen the impact, please take a few moments to view this photo of Porro from this morning. I was sitting on the edge of the bed, ready to apply some ointment to the tattoos, and I noticed him next to me having a bath. He paused momentarily to allow me a photo. See how sweet?”

“This is the gross photo! That’s a large-ish blister in the center and it is surrounded by smaller, less threatening blisters. I say the center blister is large-ish because you haven’t seen what they looked like before! I hope to post photos of the earlier treatments to track progress but I have to first organize the photos on my computer. Yes, they were big and nasty. This is still how it looks right now, approximately 53 hours after the treatment. The blisters will gradually go down and the outer layer of skin gets dry and rough. Then it peels off, revealing a fresh faded tattoo. I’ll post more photos in a week or so. Ready…set…go!”

Tattoos and Summer Holidays

September 3, 2009
Good Tattoo Location

Good Tattoo Location

Here it is early September and next Monday will be the first Monday of September, traditionally celebrated as Labor Day. It signals the end of summer and getting back into a regular routine, whatever that may be for you.  There will be friends over, firing up the grill, having a few beers and maybe even a tattoo for those so inclined.

If you’re thinking of getting a tattoo make sure it is something you like, something you love, because it will be there when you go to your grave unless you decide on a tattoo removal at some point.

Make sure it is in a location you can live with. If you think you want a tattoo, are not quite sure, but are going to have  one planted anyway be sure to put it somewhere that is easily covered with clothing, including short sleeve shirts and shorts. That way if you later develop a case of tattoo regret at least no one, other than those who see you shirtless or pant less, will be able to see the thing.

Take the advice from someone who’s been there. You can express a certain feeling or a specific expression of individuality in a private location and receive just as much satisfaction knowing it’s there without the whole world seeing it.

If at some point you want a tattoo removal then no one will know about that either.

It’s a win/win in my book and those are the best kind.

Nuviderm review of the preceding …. 2 thumbs up!

Nuviderm Reviews – Beautiful Tattoos

September 2, 2009
Beautiful tattoo, no tattoo removal required

Beautiful tattoo, no tattoo removal required

We’ve recently written about ugly tattoos so I thought it only fair to write a few words about good looking tattoos…they’re everywhere. A  well done tattoo done by a true tattoo artist can be a true work on art, until the canvas gets screwed up which is inevitable. The older the skin the more it sags, it’s just a case of gravity, old age, UV radiation and whatever else can happen to skin, especially skin exposed to the sun on a regular basis.

So, without further rambling,  I’m heading over to find a photo of a nice tattoo.


OK, this is supposed to be a tattoo, it was listed under beautiful tattoos at Google Images. It could also be a drawing listed as a tattoo, but if this is an actual tattoo it is beautiful piece of art.

If you have a tattoo you no longer consider art or anything close to being artwork you can always buy Nuviderm tattoo removal and make room for a cover up or just leave your skin bare.

IPL Tattoo Removal

September 1, 2009
IPL tattoo removal closeup

IPL tattoo removal closeup

IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is one of he newer forms of tattoo removal, but there are many drawbacks to the procedure and those considering IPL need to know a few basic facts before subjecting themselves to the procedure.

You are probably not a candidate for IPL if you:

  • are a diabetic because of the risk of poor wound healing and infections
  • take prescription blood thinners or any other form of anticoagulant, whether it be over the counter aspirin or herbal blood thinning remedies.  These should be stopped 10 days prior to any IPL treatment.
  • have hemophilia
  • are pregnant. Treatment should be postponed until after delivery.
  • have a dark complexion because IPL is likely to result in hypopigmnetation or a lightening of the skin at the treated location. If a spot of lighter skin does not bother you, then proceed with the treatment assuming you pass all other risk factors.

Treatments can be 3 – 4 weeks apart and can result in blistering and bleeding although the latter is rare.  Most IPL patients report significant pain and discomfort with the length of time for the pain varying from patient to patient.

IPL is not a fast process. Depending on the tattoo it can take up to a year to remove the majority of tattoo pigment deposited in the skin and another year following the final procedure before the skin returns to a more normal condition.


Homer Simpson: “Tattoo Fade Creams?” D’OH!

August 31, 2009
Tattoo fade cream cannot penetrate the epidermis to reach tattoos in the dermis. Even Homer Simpson knows that!

Tattoo fade creams cannot penetrate the epidermis to reach tattoos in the dermis. Even Homer Simpson knows that!

The content below is part of an ad for a British Skin Fade Cream made from the same basic ingredients that companies in this country sell as tattoo fade or removal creams and gels. The funny thing is the British company admits in this advertisement that these creams cannot penetrate the epidermis (first layer of skin) to reach the tattoo in the dermis (second layer of skin).

Read the ad, the confession, near the bottom, is highlighted in red.

.  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  . .  .

Diminish the appearance of dark spots & skin discolorations in 2 weeks*

Visibly lighten the appearance of:

  • Hyperpigmentation / Dark discolorations
  • Age / Liver spots / Sun spots
  • Freckles
  • Tans / Sun damage
  • Melasma / Chloasma
  • Acne marks
  • Old scars
  • Birthmarks
  • Dark elbows, knees, underarms, knuckles
  • Uneven skin tones

Four years ago, Civant Skincare embarked on a business plan to develop their most powerful skin product for dark skin spots, discolorations and hyperpigmentation. Not only was this formula meant to be effective, but also safe for normal use. Though the idea was simple enough, the research and development to create such a product was surprisingly extensive.  To keep the formula up to date, the research team is constantly improving their product line with new innovations.

Civant Skincare puts your safety above anything else. Our products contain absolutely no hydroquinone, mercury, steroids or other harmful bleaching substances. Full results generally appear after 2-3 months of regular use. Please follow the usage directions carefully to obtain the best results.

Active  Ingredients:  .    .    .Nuviderm analysis of ingredients.ingredient explanation copy

  • Alpha Arbutin
  • Gigawhite
  • Teqo Cosmo C
  • Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
  • Mulberry Extract
  • Bearberry Extract
  • Licorice Extract
  • Lemon Juice Extract
  • Emblica Powder
  • Kojic Acid
  • Lactic Acid
  • Glycolic Acid

Does it work on all kinds of hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation can occur on many different layers of the skin. Though typically epidermal, hyperpigmentation can occasionally be dermal. Dermal pigmentation (that’s what a tattoo is) occurs underneath the skin where as epidermal is actually on the skin. In the case of dermal pigmentation, topical creams can not penetrate below the epidermis to alleviate the problem. Normally, the melanocytes (skin pigment cells) are located in the basal layer of the epidermis and an increase in number or activity will cause epidermal hyperpigmentation. However, formed melanin may be transferred to the dermis or, in some cases, dermal melanocytes are present.

Topical creams are generally only effective on epidermal hyperpigmentation. To determine what kind of pigmentation exists in your skin, we recommend consulting with a qualified dermatologist.

.  .  .   .

What that previous section means is tattoo fade creams rubbed on the skin do not have  the power to penetrate beyond the top layer of skin to the dermis (second layer of skin) where tattoo pigment is injected to form a tattoo.

Need more proof ? Ask a Dermatologist.

Buy Nuviderm.
