The Saline Tattoo Removal is an effective method of tattoo elimination that has various advantages over traditional laser therapies. The Saline Method is effective on all types of tattoos, regardless of age, color, and location. All grades of tattoos including permanent makeup and “homemade” tattoos done with india-ink are also easily treatable. The saline method is relatively painless in comparison to other methods of removal which can cause blistering or potential scar formation. Treatment time and expense is also greatly reduced with the Saline Method because fewer treatments are necessary to obtain desired results.
Laser treatments are traditionally very expensive, painful, and cannot treat certain ink colors due to the lasers inability to breakdown lighter colors or colors that are very similar to the patients skin tone. Similarly, older tattoos are harder to remove and ink which has been placed in the deep layers of the skin is not reachable by conventional lasers.
How is Saline Tattoo removal done?
The Saline Method is applied using traditional tattoo equipment in a very similar fashion to how your original tattoo was first applied. In place of ink, a saline solution is used which penetrates the deeper layers of the skin to bond with ink molecules. As time passes the body naturally recognizes these particles as foreign and pushes them to the surface of the skin, forming a scab that later heals free of any tattoo dye..
