This works on both cosmetic tattoos and conventional tattoos, done with any type of machine or manual tool. Your tattoo must be at least 30 days old before removal. Saline removal is not suitable for medium-large tattoos. Black tattoos are often more resistant to removal, meaning you may need an extra session or two. If your unwanted tattoo is covered in thick scar tissue, it may require more sessions to remove. In that case, microneedling over the area between sessions will help to break up the scar tissue and make for more effective removal appointments.
Why should I choose it over laser tattoo removal?
Traditionally, this is just as effective as laser tattoo removal. The hypertonic saline inspires skin cells to release pigment and rise to the surface. It is more so a matter of how many sessions are needed to pull the pigment out completely, than whether or not it is possible. Whether your tattoo is 1 year old or 30 years old, saline removal will get it out. It does not permanently damage the tissue like lasers do, and is more affordable and less painful than laser treatments. Particularly if you plan to cover the area with a new tattoo once healed, saline removal will be in your best interest, as lasers can cause damage that prevents the skin from accepting/holding any new pigment.
How long will the procedure take?
Each session takes about 1 hour. Depending on the size of the tattoo and the pigment used in it, 3-6 sessions per 1″x1″ section are typically needed to remove the tattoo completely. You must wait 30 days between sessions on the same spot, and 2 weeks between sessions on different sections of the same tattoo.
