Saline Tattoo Removal vs. Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal uses a laser to break down the pigment into small particles and then are absorbed and expelled into the lymphatic and waste system. Saline Removal lifts the pigment/ink up and out of the body using the natural process called Osmosis. Osmosis is a natural process in which the natural salts in our body become attracted to the higher concentrated amount of salt in the saline that is being placed in the skin and then pulls up and out to the surface of our skin. Some people do not like the idea of the pigment being absorbed by the lymphatic system and opt for Saline Removal.

Tattoo removal can cause scar tissue and can permanently remove brow hair. In many cases you may not be able to re-tattoo over that particular area again due to the skin trauma. Saline Tattoo Removal does not cause scaring or remove existing brow hair when down by a certified technician and allows you to re-tattoo over that area again.

Laser removal can only target specific colors to break down and does not remove titanium (white). Saline Solution recognizes pigment/ink uniformly so it removes all colors including white.

With every other form of removal, there are risk of hyper-pigmentation and scarring if not done by a certified technician.

What to Expect During and After Saline Tattoo Removal?

During the Procedure:

  • Stinging (Saline does have salts)
  • Some people bleed and get red, which is normal.
  • The skin might swell

After the Procedure:

  • Aftercare is essential to the success of a saline removal.
  • You will get the detailed aftercare and a follow-up appointment.
  • The area can stay red or discolored for a few weeks as the area heals.

The scab is the most important formation after the procedure. This is where the pigment lifts up through the skin and attaches its self to the scab, So keeping the scab intact is very important.

If you are looking for a less invasive method to remove unwanted cosmetic tattoos and body tattoos, Saline Tattoo Removal is a great choice. Always remember to look for someone reputable in the business especially when working on your body.
