WHAT IS SALINE REMOVAL?
Saline tattoo and permanent makeup lightening and removal is considered very safe and suitable for all skin tones and tattoo colours. Saline removal is less likely than laser removal to cause any pigmentation issues, though this can still occur with this modality, so clients must be advised of all potential downsides.
Saline removal is colour blind and can therefore be accomplished with ink colours that a laser device will cause reaction to.
The safety of this method rests in the solution itself. Hypertonic saline will not cause a skin reaction unless underlying health issues are not disclosed. Top quality saline removal solutions typically include skin calming and healing agents for the best possible results.
Just as with laser tattoo removal, several sessions will be required with mitigating factors being tattoo age and saturation level. Saline removal or lightening is not ideal for large tattoos since each treatment session can only cover a 2 to 3 inch square area of skin at maximum.
