Saline lightening/removal works by Osmosis. The high concentration of salt in the solution draws the water underneath and surrounding the pigment up to the surface of the skin to be contained and removed via the scab, whereas Laser pushes pigment back down into the body to be removed by the lymph and waste system. Saline is not color restricted and will remove all colors including white (titanium dioxide). It is also not depth specific, meaning it will target and start lifting pigment no matter what depth it’s at.
The Saline solution is delivered into the skin the same way pigment is implanted during your permanent makeup (pmu) or body tattoo procedure. The healing process is about 7 to 10 days, similar to the healing stages of your pmu or body tattoo.
While Laser can permanently remove brow hair, Saline will not affect your brow hair at all. If you have tattooed brows you wish to have removed/lightened and you have brow hair present, saline is your best choice.
How many sessions it will take to lighten/remove your tattoo will depend on many different factors and it’s impossible to predict how many sessions it will take. Although many times we achieve amazing results in just one or two sessions, it is not uncommon for certain procedures to take up to four, five or even six sessions to reach the lightening/removal results wanted.
If you’ve had permanent makeup or a tattoo done that you are immediately unhappy with, emergency removal can be completed within a 48 hour window. Once the skin is wounded, we have a short period of time before the epidermal crust is fully formed. Until that epidermal crust is fully formed, the area can still be treated and is highly effective at removing fresh pigment.
