We use the best natural saline solution available, one of the most effective approach to lightening tattoos, scalp/hair micropigmentation and Microblading removal. It is safer and sometimes faster than other tattoo removal procedures. In addition, saline solution treatment is ideal for those with darker skin tones, those with sensitive skin, and those who have had an allergic reaction to tattoo pigment. This method can lighten/remove tattoos on any area, including around the eyes.
The first step of the salt/saline treatment is similar to the process of traditional tattooing: our technician will use same device as micropigmentation applying special saline solution into the treatment area. This punctures the top layer of skin, opening the area. Our technician can treat up to a 2-by-2-inch area in one sitting. The saline will draw the tattoo pigment to the skin’s surface and gently exfoliates it away. With this method of tattoo removal, clients can expect the tattoo to become lighter, but a full removal will take a few sessions depending on the pigment used, and how your skin heals. The skin can be re-tattooed after the treatment area heals. We had a few clients only needed one session because it was micropigmentation pigments and they are good healers. Carbon ink is the hardest to remove, it will require more sessions. Saline removal takes less sessions than laser removal and can be use on the eye area.
Treatment for Those with Tattoo Pigment Allergies. We require Clients should consult their doctor about the allergy prior to treatment. We will develop a treatment plan according to the severity of the allergy, the area to be lightened, and the doctor’s recommendations for the client.
1) What can the client expect during and after treatments?
During treatment, the client should expect some minor bleeding and a chance of bruising. The treated area will also be tender for a few days. The skin should scab over and heal over the course of a few weeks. Fading will happen gradually over several months.
2) What are the benefits of this procedure?
The tattoo will become lighter and may possibly fade completely over time. This removal technique is safe for all skin types. The saline tattoo removal is safer and has fewer risks of hypo/hyperpigmentation, blistering, and scarring than laser removal treatments. The skin may be re-tattooed once the area has sufficiently healed.
3) Who are the best candidates?
Scalp Micropigmentation, Hair Tattoo Changes or removal. Microblading, Ombre Powder Brows Micropigmentation or Brow Tattoo correction or removal.
Individuals who are patient and willing to follow aftercare instructions are ideal candidates. Clients pregnant or on blood-thinning medications or who expect immediate results are not ideal candidates for this treatment.
4) What final results can the client expect?
Clients should be realistic in their expectations. They should expect a lightening of the tattoo, not full removal. Clients should expect two to four procedures before they see desired results. May be more sessions if it's a large area.
5) How long is each session? Each session lasts for about 1 1/2 hours.
The speed of removal depends on the patient and their tattoo.
The Kirby-Desai scale is a popular and well-regarded tool for analyzing the number of treatments a tattoo will need for removal. The scale accounts for the following factors that affect the rate of removal:
Fitzpatrick skin type
Tattoo layering (if the tattoo is a cover-up)
Location on the body
Amount of ink (vividness of tattoo, if it was professionally applied)
The Kirby-Desai scale was published in 2009, and technology has improved since then to remove tattoos, but it continues to be an excellent tool for assessing where a patient stands on the bell curve. There are also other factors, such as patient health, that affect the speed of removal. If a patient is young, physically fit, and has a strong immune system, they will tend to see results faster than an older, obese patient with health problems. Encouraging patients to exercise, drink ample water, and massage the treated area (once healed) are good aftercare tips to share with patients looking to get the best results.
