Saline removal is a technique when ink is pulled out of the skin into a scab that comes off versus with a laser where the ink is being absorbed by the body. It is used to lighten or fully remove tattoos. The way that saline removal treatment is done is with the use of saline otherwise known as salt and water, which is proven very safe by nature.
How is it done?
The treatment is very similar to being tattooed
We apply topical anesthetic to numb the skin prior to treatment and tattoo over old PMU work with saline solution
Through osmosis, saline removal persuades the cells to release the ink or pigment. Osmosis relies on the principle of equalization when there is a semi permeable membrane that has a more highly concentrated solution on one side, water tends to move across the membrane toward that concentrated solution and attempt to create equal conditions on each side. When saline is injected into the skin, water is pulled up from the cells of the dermis, and some of the pigment comes along for the ride. A scab forms on the open wound created by saline injection, and the pigment becomes part of the scab. New cell growth begins below and the scab eventually falls off. Other than creating a temporary wound, the process has no harmful effects on the body. It affects only the specific area treated, unless severe infection occurs. Proper aftercare is essential to prevent that from happening. This process is often repeated multiple times to achieve the desired results, while allowing time for the skin to heal in between.
