Cosmetic tattoos may be permanent and bring a lot of discomforts, and sometimes, people decide they want them off.
For instance, tattoos may bring up old memories or they may no longer suit your lifestyle or taste. Eyebrow and lip tattoos like old microblading or Lip blush done wrongly may not look good anymore or they were botched in the first place.
Whatever the reason for tattoo regret may be, saline tattoo removal offers a safe, convenient, and painless way to make it go away.
Many people wonder if saline tattoo removal works better than laser treatments.
Below you will find out more about saline tattoo removal, how it works compared to laser, and why it may be the right choice for you.
Laser treatment may be a faster way to eliminate a badly done microblading or old permanent cosmetics procedure. But there are cons and pros to consider.
The process of laser tattoo removal works by targeting laser energy at your skin with a high concentration of colored light beams. The laser energy breaks the ink particles down into smaller pieces, which are then absorbed by the body and cleared away. Over time, the pigment is taken up by your body’s immune system, and you see the tattoo lighter.
Several sessions may be needed to achieve the best results, with the exact amount needed depending on different factors and circumstances. There are no incisions required for this procedure, and laser tattoo removal is relatively bloodless. Only pigments in tattoos are targeted in this treatment, so surrounding skin and tissues are unharmed. Laser tattoo removal will remove hair from your eyebrows, that may or may not grow back.
Hyperpigmentation (excessive color) and hypopigmentation (excessive fade) are possible side effects associated with this procedure. There is also the risk of infection, and there is also a slight chance of permanent scarring. The skin might look as though it has been sunburned for several months after the treatment, but it eventually goes away.
With saline extraction, much of the ink from your tattoo is pulled back up from beneath your skin’s surface. When using Saline removal, the eyebrow hairs remain intact. At Brows&Lips, our permanent cosmetic tattoo removal services are less painful, less expensive, and yield better results than any laser. Our procedure is done using either a handheld or an electric handheld pen that gently opens up tattooed areas of colour-filled skin, then applies a serum or a remover liquid to lift off unwanted pigment.
The unwanted pigment is slowly pulled back to the surface of the skin and healed to form a scab. When the scab falls away, this pigment falls away with it, leaving behind a lighter tattoo. Clients should expect to have between three and four treatments before seeing their desired results. With this method of tattoo removal, clients can expect to see a lighter-coloured tattoo but do not expect to get the complete removal. The skin may re-tattoo once the treated area has healed.
With Saline tattoo removal you receive
After each session of saline cosmetic tattoo removal, you need to let the skin heal completely before the next session. This can take on average 4-8 weeks for saline.
A scab will form over the area treated with either treatment type, and it can take a few weeks to heal. Make sure to follow aftercare instructions, such as not pulling at the scab, to avoid scarring and infections.
How many sessions are needed will depend on how saturated the pigment is, how deep it was implanted and how much needs to be removed for the desired result. In many cases, only a percentage of the density needs to be lightened/removed and then we can continue the correction process by color correcting.
Saline tattoo removal can take several sessions to lighten the tattoo significantly. It’s possible to predict how effective the process will be for any individual after free online or offline consultation.
Before booking your appointment/ consultation please verify that you do not have any pre-existing conditions that interfere with Saline removal.
