Saline is the most effective and safe natural pigment lightening solution that is safe for permanent makeup on the face.
Saline tattoo removal is a process by which we penetrate the skin with a saline solution (salt + purified water) to break up the tattoo pigment and pull it out of the skin. The procedure is similar to tattooing or microblading but instead of injecting ink underneath the skin, we’re doing the reverse, which is pulling it out.
At Brow Spell Studio I use LI-FT. LI-FT is currently the most effective and safest saline solution out there. I want my clients to have the best results possible, which is why I only use the highest quality ingredients and techniques. LI-FT is mainly made up of purified water, salt, lemon and orange seed extracts and so is very safe for your skin.
Clients who are interested in getting a removal MUST send clear non-filtered photos in an email, to get approved before going ahead and booking a consultation appointment.
The amount of session varies per person and is unpredictable depending on how old the previous tattoo is, the previous artists technique, pigments/ink used, how deep the previous was, how many sessions were done on them. It can take anywhere from 1 - 6 sessions to reach the desired results. It can take more sessions with oily skin and less sessions with dry skin.
If all aftercare are followed perfectly, that can bring better results in fewer sessions.
Some may require more sessions than others.
It is critical that clients follow all aftercare instructions to prevent complications, scarring, and to achieve optimum results. I will provide you a thorough aftercare sheet to follow after our appointment. Remember results cannot be foreseen, predicted or guaranteed, but can be optimized by your care.
Our skin takes about 5-6 weeks to fully heal completely so it is recommended to wait 8 weeks before doing another session and nothing earlier. It is important to the integrity of the skin. No exceptions.
There can be times where the first 2 sessions can have little difference but this doesn’t mean it is not working. This lightening solution is a long process and will require a lot of patience but it is worth it.
YOU ARE AN IDEAL CANDIDATE IF:
· too dark
· too thick
· improper placement
· too much asymmetry
YOU ARE NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE IF:
If post-inflammatory pigmentation occurs, it is from the trauma of the needle, and not caused by the saline solution itself. PIP can occur with all forms of removal.
Fitzpatrick Skin Types 4-6 clients should come in for a patch test in an inconspicuous area, such as behind the ear. I will open the client's skin, and apply the saline solution for 10 minutes, clean the area then advise the client to come back in 6 weeks to see if any PIP (post-inflammatory pigmentation) has occurred.
These may or may not happen but it is a possibility. They can be temporary depending on each persons skin. I cannot guarantee or promise.
