Frequently askedquestions.

What is saline pigment lightening?

Saline Tattoo Removal is a natural approach to tattoo removal. It is the least invasive and less painful form of tattoo removal. A natural saline solution called Li-FT is used, the solution is implanted with a machine over existing permanent makeup or small tattoos.

Implanting the solution into the skin breaks up the healed pigment. This process lifts the pigment out of the skin via osmosis. As pigment rises to the surface, a scab will form, and will fall off as the removal area heals, thus revealing a lightened tattoo.

How does saline tattoo removal work?

​We use a saline solution with lemon seed and orange seed extract, which aids in fading pigment and exfoliation. It also contains aloe vera which is aids in skin conditioning and helps the healing process. This solution is implanted in the skin via osmosis. Osmosis is the tendency of a fluid, usually water, to pass through a semipermeable membrane into a solution where the solvent concentration is higher, thus equalizing the concentrations of materials on either side of the membrane ( Through this process, the pigment is lifted up and out of the skin. The scabs that form contain the trapped pigment, thus the pigment is removed when the scabs fall off, resulting in a lighter tattoo.

how many sessions are needed?

There are different factors that contribute to how many sessions are needed. In some cases, one session can remove a tattoo, but in most cases a few sessions are required for complete removal. After your first session, we will have a better idea of how many sessions are needed.

factors that contribute to the need for multiple sessions

  • What type of pigment is to be removed

  • How recent the tattoo was done

  • How deep the pigment was implanted

  • How saturated the pigment is

  • What part of the body the tattoo is on

  • How sensitive the skin is

  • How well the skin heals

  • How well the aftercare instructions are followed

  • How much pigment is to be removed

aftercare instructions?

  • Keep area clean and OPEN to the air. DO NOT cover with a band-aid and DO NOT touch the area unless you have just washed your hands.

  • Apply the Saline wound wash 3 times a day for 3 days. Dampen a paper towel with saline then press and blot to clean the area.

  • DO NOT soak the treated area in water. In and out of the shower avoiding getting area wet if possible. If area does get wet pat dry immediately.

  • NO BATHING, SWIMMING, SAUNAS, HOT TUBS, TANNING OR EXERCISING DO NOT DISRUPT, scratch or pick the scab. The unwanted pigment will be drawn up into the scab so it’s important to keep the scab as long as possible. Do not pick and allow scab to fall off naturally 

  • TREAT AREA WITH TLC. Do not do anything that could compromise or cause problems to the treated area.

  • ONCE ALL SCABBING FALLS OFF apply one drop of Vitamin E Oil 3 to 4 times a day throughout the day for a minimum of 4 weeks. DO NOT start applying the Vitamin E Oil until all scabs have naturally fallen off.
