Saline Removal


$90 per session

Do you have older permanent cosmetics or a small tattoo that has faded or looks discolored? Have you been turned away from other artists because they feel there is nothing they can do to help you get better results? Have you outgrown the previous design? Well, Saline Removal may be your answer. This treatment is used to lighten or remove old work. It serves as a natural alternative to the well-known laser removal technique. 


Saline is simply salt and water. Mixing the two and depositing it into the skin lightens tattoos and when done in a series of treatments it will completely remove the pigment. Saline tattoo removal uses osmosis to persuade the cells to release the pigment and draw it out from under the skin. During this procedure there will be some minor bleeding and could potentially bruise. Please keep in mind when booking that the top layer of skin will scab. As it heals, the tattoo will gradually lighten.

How many sessions will it take to remove the tattoo?

The honest answer is, it depends. There are many factors that will affect your skin’s reaction. Some things to keep in mind: Treatment area, location, how the skin reacts and heals, how the client follows aftercare. Once you are fully healed from the first session we will better be able to decide how many sessions you will need.

The Differences between Laser and Saline Removal Techniques:

Laser treatments break up the tattoo ink and it is absorbed into the body. With Saline the ink is lifted up out of the skin through osmosis, therefore is removed from the body.

Laser treatment requires a different wavelength of light for each color and cannot remove white pigment. Saline removes all pigment colors.

Laser treatment can damage hair follicles. Saline does not.

Laser cannot be used around the eyes. Saline is safe to use around the eyes.

Some skin types, especially darker skin tones, are prone to burns or pigment problems, even scarring, with laser. Saline typically does no have these complications.
