Nuviderm Tattoo Removal – Proper Use

April 22, 2010

Any tattoo removal product powerful enough to remove a tattoo should be used with caution and a full understanding of the instructions included with the purchase.

The use of laser is the most popular and well known method of tattoo removal. Proper laser use requires a trained technician using the most up to date laser technology available. The major drawbacks of laser use are cost,  pain and the inability to remove lighter shades of tattoo pigment without repeatedly treating the same area over long periods of time. White should not even be attempted to be removed with laser unless the pigment is 5 – 10 years old and had time to fade a bit.

There are many home tattoo removal products available, but many are ineffective creams that may feel pleasant on the skin, but do nothing to tattoo pigment injected into the dermis.

To remove tattoo pigment, a home use tattoo removal product must have the ability to penetrate the skin and over time fade away an ink deposit that was meant to be permanent. Any product with such power has the ability to harm the skin if not used as directed. It must be understood from the beginning that there are possible side effects to any tattoo removal process that actually works whether it be laser, ipl, salabrasion, dermabrasion or tca.

Some products claim to be able to remove ink by just rubbing it on the tattoo once or twice a day and that there will be no discomfort or inconvenience associated with the process. Anyone who believes that still believes in the tooth fairy. That is one reason why it is wise to think long and hard before getting a tattoo that, statistics say, you will one day regret.

Application of  Nuviderm

1). Be prepared to read and understand the instructions or don’t buy it.

2). Following instructions, always use the weakest strength that will cause your skin to peel.

3). Always allow the proper interval between treatments.

4). There is no need to apply the Nuviderm solution way outside the borders of your tattoo. Why peel more skin than necessary? The smaller the treated area the less discomfort experienced.

5). It may be desirable to rid yourself of your tattoo as soon as possible, but do not use a stronger peeling solution than necessary just because you may become impatient. Using to strong a solution may damage the skin.

6). The active ingredient in Nuviderm is the same product used in facial peels. These procedures have been done for many years with excellent success rates and no scarring. There is no reason tattoo removal should be any different.

7). When peeling through the pigmented layer of skin it is possible to experience hypo-pigmentation, which is a lightening of the skin in the treated area or hyper-pigmentation which is a darkening of the treated area. It is also possible that neither will be experienced.

Always educate yourself about the product chosen for tattoo removal so that you do not enter into such a serious undertaking with unreasonable expectations.

New Tattoo Removal Product?

November 19, 2009
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.

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.

Later…

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.

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.

Nuviderm works.

Tattoo Mistakes Require Tattoo Removal

August 30, 2009
Holy Cow!...This thing is so ugly tattoo removal isn't good enough, the guy should have a beer belly-ectomy.

Holy Cow!...This thing is so ugly tattoo removal isn't good enough, the guy should have a beer belly-ectomy.

I’ve seen many awful tattoos, some home made some professionally done. Some “professionally” done tattoos are so bad the only reason they can be called professionally applied is because the so called “artist” got paid to do it.

So, as in sports, if you are really  an amateur tattoo artist, but someone pays you to perform that makes you a professional. That is what I call a distinction without a difference – if you suck, you suck no matter your official title.

Since today is Sunday and I really would rather be doing something else I will make today’s entry short and sweet. I am going to log on to Google Images and find what I think, at that particular moment, is the ugly tattoo of the day.

I will say this, the tattoo artist who did this is good, but the subject matter could be better.

Nuviderm Removal of a Tattoo

August 28, 2009
Removal of a tattoo should not be done with a hot iron

Removal of a tattoo should not be done with a hot iron

How many time do I have to say this?

  • Nuviderm is made from a product that has been medically tested and proven to remove tattoos…30 years ago!!
  • It’s what they used to remove tattoos before some guy invented the laser.
  • Nuviderm may be the old way to remove tattoos, but it’s also a hell of a lot cheaper – same result, way, way lower price – what’s not to like?
  • Lasers are inconvenient – you have to go to them.
  • Nuviderm comes to you and you have complete control over where and when.
  • It takes just about as long to remove a tattoo with Nuviderm as it does a laser, but at about 4% of the cost.
  • What you do with the money you save is your business.
  • Like laser removal there are certain procedures that must be followed when using Nuviderm.
  • Each purchase of Nuviderm comes with a little instruction booklet that explains everything you need to know.
  • It takes about the same amount of time to remove a tattoo with Nuviderm as it does with a laser, but with a heck of a lot less burning.
  • Lasers remove tattoos.
  • Nuviderm removes tattoos.
  • A one ounce bottle of Nuviderm tattoo removal concentrate contains about the same tattoo pigment removal power of about $1000.00 of laser treatments.
  • Nuviderm works.
  • This Nuviderm review of itself recommends that you buy Nuviderm and skip the high priced brand.
  • Don’t get me started on tattoo removal creams – they don’t work.
  • Buy Nuviderm.
  • The End

Nuviderm Reviews – Tattoo Pigments -Part 2

August 26, 2009

Nuviderm reviews tattoo pigments  - a solid waiting for the liquid "carrier"

Nuviderm reviews tattoo pigments - a solid waiting for the liquid "carrier"

Have you ever noticed that not one single company that markets a tattoo removal product ever mentions what tattoo pigments are actually composed of ? Could it be that they know their product will not remove these pigments and therefore  don’t want to bring up the subject?

Here is something all women can relate to – how the new fingernail polishes, when correctly applied, can last a very long time and require finger nail polish remover (acetone), which is a powerful solvent, to remove the paint pigment? Sure, the finger nail paint may chip or scratch ,but if left alone it would be there for a very long time.

You may have guessed where this is going – the pigments in fingernail polish and tattoo ink are sometimes made of the same thing. Epoxy finger nail polishes are a form of plastic and many tattoo pigments are a plastic base held in liquid suspension for easy injection into the skin. Plastic tattoo pigments have become popular because of their vibrancy under the skin and resistance to fading by sunlight.

Do you think rubbing a tattoo removal cream on your fingernail polish would remove or even dull the finish? Heck no, wouldn’t happen unless the cream had a grit in it and then you are basically slowly sanding the paint off. It would still take quite a while to remove the old paint before you could put on a fresh coat.

The same goes with rubbing tattoo removal cream on your skin to remove tattoo pigment that is deposited BELOW your skin. For the cream to work you must also exfoliate with a gritty cream or use an exfoliation pad or a powered exfoliate of some kind. The exfoliate does the work while the cream may work to fade only your skin pigment – not tattoo pigment.

As I’ve heard said before, you could just skip the cream and simply exfoliate until the tattoo pigment begins to fade and that will take a very long time, longer than Laser,IPL or Nuviderm. As a matter of fact you’ll have several birthdays before you’ve accomplished you goal.

Below is a list of common tattoo pigments, many of the same pigments used in house paint, car paint and yes, fingernail polish.  After you read the list ask yourself how a tattoo fade cream could remove iron oxide, cadmium oxide, copper, aluminum silicate,  titanium oxide or any of the other minerals and chemicals on the list. Even laser and IPL have a hard time removing the whites, blues and greens, but Nuviderm can remove them all because it is a chemical peel, plus it costs hundreds maybe thousands of dollars less than laser or ipl.

Visit Nuviderm.com for more information.

The Composition of  Common  Tattoo Pigments

  • RED:  cadmium red, iron oxide, or napthol. “Iron oxide is also known as common rust. Cadmium pigments are highly toxic. Fewer reactions have been reported with naphthol red than the other pigments.
  • BLACK:  of iron oxides, carbon. Magnetite crystals, powdered jet and soot. Black pigment is commonly made into India ink. Logwood, found in Central America and the West Indies.”

  • GREEN: chromium oxide , Malachite, Ferrocyanides, Ferricyanides,  Monoazo pigment, Cu/Al phthalocyanine, or Cu phthalocyanine.
  • YELLOW: made of cadmium yellow, ochres, chrome yellow, or disazodiarylide. Reactions are commonly associated with yellow pigments because more pigment is needed to achieve  bright color.”
  • BROWNS: made of ochre. Ochre is composed of iron  oxides mixed and clay.  When dehydrated , ochre changes to a reddish color.”
  • ORANGE: made of disazodiarylide, disazopyrazolone, or cadmium seleno-sulfide.
  • BLUE: cobalt blue, or Cu-phtalocyanine. Blue pigments from minerals include copper  carbonate , sodium aluminum silicate, calcium copper silicate  and chromium oxides. The safest blues and greens are copper salts. Copper-based pigments are considerably safer or more stable.
  • WHITE: lead carbonate, titanium dioxide, barium sulfate, or zinc oxide. Titanium oxides are one of the least reactive white pigments.”
  • VIOLET:  manganese  quinacridone,  and various aluminum salts.  Dioxazine and carbazole are the most stable purple pigments.”

If You Exfoliate Do You Really Need A Tattoo Removal Cream of Gel?

August 18, 2009
Nuviderm works without lufa pads or battery operated sanders. Trust Nuviderm

Nuviderm works without lufa pads or battery operated sanders. Trust Nuviderm

As all people looking for a tattoo removal product know, there are many such products on the market. The problem is wading through all the information available on each technique and figuring out which methods are B.S. and which methods actually work. You know we like  Nuviderm  tattoo removal, but there are other  products “out there”. Some work and some don’t and some combine a method that works veerrryy sloowwllyy with one that does nothing so they can jack up the price and make tons of money. Today we will concentrate on those  suspect “dual method” tattoo removers.

Now, you can go buy a skin fade cream marketed as a tattoo removal fade cream and rub that stuff on your tattoo until Halley’s Comet comes around again and all you’ll get for your trouble is soft faded skin and a bit of exercise from rubbing it in, all that stuff does is fade skin pigment, not tattoo pigment.

There are products that combine the skin pigment fading ability of a skin fade cream with a lufa pad or a battery powered exfoliator and call this the “dual method” –  a tattoo removal cream with an exfoliator. Some of the creams even have bits of crushed apricot pits or some other form of grit to help along with the exfoliation, the fade cream in the ingredient list is part of the magicians trick they use, but instead of the hand being quicker than the eye, it’s the eye that doesn’t quite know what it’s looking at.

You are instructed to use your sander or lufa pad and then apply the magic serum, or apply the magic serum and then exfoliate.  The order doesn’t matter unless the cream has a grit in it to help the exfoliation. A few weeks of this and the skin begins to fade, that is the skin pigment inhibitors in the cream prevent the production of your skin pigment, which fades the skin and “tricks” the eye into seeing a fading tattoo. It’s all hogwash, bullshit, trickery, deception or any other similar word you care to use. Sure, the skin is faded but the tattoo is as bright and shiny as the day you began this regimen.

The secret is that just by exfoliating and maybe adding a bit of weak acid – say lemon juice, you can make the same headway in fading your tattoo as you will by spending all that extra money on the cream.

These companies spend a lot of money trying to convince you to use their product beacause A) It’s easy;  B)It’s painless; C) It leaves no scars (exfoliating massages don’t leave scars), and D) It’s highly profitable for them.

The unfortunate news is the current state of the art methods of real tattoo removal are not easy, they are not without discomfort and in certain cases pain, some leave scars and some don’t,  some are highly profitable (laser) and others are just profitable otherwise no one would be marketing them and them is us… Nuviderm.

Nuviderm is the easy, effective and affordable alternative to laser removal. Nuviderm can involve some discomfort, but using your common sense, it is not comfortable removing a PERMANENT TATTOO.  It is easy because it’s used only once every three  to six weeks. No rosy scenario, just facts.

If you want to get rid of your tattoo and can’t afford laser, give Nuviderm a try.

Nuviderm works.

Nuviderm Reviews State of the Art Tattoo Removal

August 17, 2009

Nuviderm Reviews, Nuviderm Tattoo Removal, Nuviderm, Trust Nuviderm, Buy Nuviderm

Nuviderm Reviews, Nuviderm Tattoo Removal, Nuviderm, Trust Nuviderm, Buy Nuviderm

Nuviderm reviews state of  the art tattoo removal.

If you are considering going to a laser tattoo removal specialist, make sure that he or she is using current laser technology like these:

  • Affinity QS-Q Switch 532nm/1064nm
  • MedLite/RevLite – Q Switch 532nm/1064nm
  • Accolade – Q Switch 755nm

The preferred choice is the Affinity QS. It emits laser light in two wavelengths. The lower 532 nm wavelength is used to remove red, orange, pink and most light ink colors.

In order to remove black, dark blue, brown, and other dark colors, your tattoo removal specialist will use the 1064 nm wavelength. If the specialist you’re considering does not have a laser capable of handling all of the ink colors in your tattoo, find one who does.

Laser Tattoo Removal Pros

  • Laser technology has improved which has boosted success rates.
  • Most laser tattoo removal specialists are well-trained in both technical and safety procedures, thereby lowering the risk of a botched job.

Laser Tattoo Removal Cons

  • Laser tattoo removal is expensive. Sessions can run $300 or more and multiple sessions are required.
  • Scarring, burning and blistering are common. The procedure is painful. Don’t let anyone fool you.
  • Infections are common

Laser Tattoo Removal Alternatives

  • Dermabrasion/Salabrasion
  • Excision
  • Tattoo Removal Creams
  • Nuviderm- (Chemical Removal)

Before deciding upon laser tattoo removal, make sure you thoroughly understand the risks as well as the alternate technologies available.
