If you recall your science class days you will recall learning about the process of osmosis.It is this same process by which saline tattoo lightening and removal works.Skin cells which contain tattoo ink are semi-permeable and when saline solution is entered into the skin it can pull the ink molecules out of the cells and upward toward the surface of the skin.It is not uncommon to see the resulting scabbed treated area coloured the same colour as the original tattoo.If scarring exists, the process also softens the scars.Saline can be done on all skin colours, and all tattoo ink colours.As with any invasive treatment some scarring and/or hyper/hypopigmentation can occur.This is very dependent on the area of the body treated as well as the client themselves.Fortunately, we are also able to address scarring with microneeding and dry needling and, provided the melanin cells in the skin have not been permanently destroyed, we can often stimulate them to begin producing pigment again.It is impossible to render the skin “virgin” after a tattoo and removal session.Many clients opt for this method of removal in order to create a canvas for a cover up tattoo.This respects the artist’s work and prevents the need for an overly saturated cover up which may not age well in time.Sessions take no longer than an hour and we often use near infrared light therapy on the treated area to expedite and optimize healing.
