Saline removal is achieved by using the cosmetic tattoo machine to implant a sterile solution of finely milled sea salt, purified water, lemon seed extract, orange seed extract, and aloe into the tattooed area. . The lightening solution creates a scab over the tattooed area causing them to naturally scab off as the skin is healing. Saline Removal works on the theory of “Osmosis”. During the healing process the unwanted pigment attaches to the scab and is effectively pulled out and out by the scab.
• Saline removal is safe for most skin types, as opposed to alternative methods that can lead to blistered, hypo/hyper pigmented or scarred skin.
• It tends to be less painful than laser removal and typically, even less painful than when the tattoo was first applied.
• Saline removal is not colour specific, unlike laser, meaning you may have better success treating commonly difficult to remove colours (red, orange, yellow, pale blue and white which can be base colours in cosmetic tattoo pigments).
• Saline removal actually removes ink from the body, whereas a method such as laser removal, breaks up the ink into smaller fragments and may push pigment deeper into the skin, only to then be processed by your lymphatic system.
• You can easily get another tattoo on the same place once it has healed up, which may not be possible with methods like surgical removal or if scar issue has been left behind by laser treatments.
