What is Saline Removal?
Let us share the tattoo removal process...
Effective on all pigment colours.
The original method of saline tattoo removal is exactly that, salt and water, the solution you might also use as an eyewash. Any kind of tattoo removal or lightening is a process. Although we’ve seen some great results after just one session, most clients will see improvements after 2-6 sessions.
For each layer of pigment that was healed into the skin, it will take up to 3 sessions for removal. If you’ve had multiple sessions of colour, then multiple sessions of removal will be required. During your consultation, we will assess how easily the pigment can be removed from your skin. Whilst we can’t give you an exact number of sessions to fully remove unwanted pigment, you’ll be able to understand the removal process and know what’s required. We find this so helps our clients. We offer the most advanced treatments in saline removal with Botched Ink®.
Effective in removing all unwanted colour, this system will lighten in 1 session but, if the skin is heavily saturated, it may take up to 6-8 sessions for full removal if the skin is heavily saturated. Botched Ink® works great for old saturated brows, discolored brows or SMP and can be used for emergency removals as well.
The beautiful thing about this system is there are NO THICK CHUNKY SCABS like other treatments. You can go about life normally with minimal downtime, and flaking is minimal as you heal. Notably, unlike other saline products, you can still shower. Your brows won’t look blotchy the next day.
Benefits of Saline Removal
Saline removal, also known as saline tattoo removal or saline tattoo lightening, is a method used to fade or remove unwanted tattoos. Instead of using lasers or other invasive techniques, this process involves the introduction of a saline solution into the skin to help lift and fade the tattoo pigment. While saline removal may not completely eliminate a tattoo, it can have several benefits:
Non-invasive: Unlike laser tattoo removal, which involves the use of high-intensity laser beams, saline removal is a non-invasive procedure. It doesn’t penetrate as deeply into the skin and doesn’t cause the same level of discomfort or potential scarring.
Low risk of side effects: Saline removal carries a lower risk of side effects compared to other tattoo removal methods. Since it doesn’t involve lasers or chemicals, the chances of complications such as skin discoloration, scarring, or infection are reduced.
Suitable for various tattoo colors: Saline removal is effective for various tattoo colors, including dark and stubborn pigments like black, blue, and green. It can also be used to lighten or remove permanent makeup or microblading.
Gradual fading: Saline removal works by breaking down the tattoo pigments, allowing the body’s natural healing processes to gradually remove them. This gradual fading can be beneficial if you prefer a more subtle transition or want to lighten a tattoo for a cover-up.
Compatibility with all skin types: Saline removal is generally suitable for all skin types, including sensitive or darker skin tones, where laser removal may carry a higher risk of complications.
Lower cost: In general, saline tattoo removal tends to be less expensive than laser removal. The procedure is simpler, requiring fewer sessions, which can make it a more affordable option for those on a budget.
Flexibility for modification or cover-up: If you want to modify or cover up an existing tattoo, saline removal can help lighten the tattoo and make it easier for a tattoo artist to work with the area. The faded tattoo provides a more neutral base for new designs or modifications.
It’s important to note that saline removal may not completely eliminate a tattoo, particularly if it’s large or heavily pigmented. Additionally, results can vary depending on factors such as the tattoo’s age, depth, and ink quality. Consulting with a professional tattoo removal specialist can help determine if saline removal is the right option for you and provide personalized advice based on your specific situation.
