Saline Tattoo Removal (Priced Per Session)



Please take the time and acknowledge that you read Look Before You Book

Are you tired of the shape or color of your tattooed brows? Or, maybe you just want to start fresh with some new brows without the undertones of previous work. This is also great for people who want to fade that old body tattoo to prep yourself for a more seamless cover up tattoo or PMU (tattoo must be smaller than a deck of cards).


NOTE: This procedure is not offered for eyeliner or lip blushing tattoo.

Pigment is removed from the skin using a saline solution mixed with soothing ingredients. It is implanted over existing permanent makeup or small tattoos using a tattoo machine in a manner similar to the manner the tattoo or permanent makeup was applied. Implanting the solution into the skin breaks up the healed pigment, and begins to lift the pigment from the skin toward the surface of the skin becomes a scab. The scab then falls off and leaves a lightened tattoo.

In some cases, one session can significantly lighten or remove a tattoo, but in most cases multiple sessions are needed (with 6-8 weeks of healing in between). After your skin has healed following your first session, we can better determine how many sessions may be needed. There are several factors that determine how many sessions of removal is needed -

  • Depth in which the previous artist implanted the pigment into the skin
  • Pigment type and color
  • Skin type
  • Age of tattoo
  • Client’s skin
  • Client’s adherence to aftercare instructions

Why Saline Removal Over Laser Removal?

Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors with a high-intensity light beam. In some cases, such as with black ink, laser can be very effective at lightening color. Lasers are among the most common tools used to remove tattoos. Lasers can be extremely painful and cause scarring. When used on the face, there are limitations for removal, such as near the eyes. Also, it can change eyebrow hair color permanently, and/or cause hair to temporarily or permanently fall out. Lasers can also make cosmetic tattoos darker instead of lighter. 

Finally, if someone desires to have another tattoo or cosmetic procedure after removal, sometimes they will be unable to do so over lasered skin. This is because sometimes the skin will no longer accept pigment after being lasered.

Do I Qualify For Saline Removal? 

The simple answer is, anyone that has had poor permanent makeup or small tattoos that they want removed from their bodies may qualify for laser removal. That said, there are certain people who will be poor candidates for saline removal - 

  • People taking blood thinners/bleeding disorders may bleed lightly during this procedure and should consult with a doctor before proceeding.
  • People with skin irritations near the area such as sunburn, severe acne, eczema or psoriasis would be extremely sensitive to the procedure and it will be painful, resulting in poor retention. If they have this issue when they come in for an appointment they will have to reschedule for when their skin returns to normal.
  • People using acids, anti-aging, acne and retinol products - These will make them bleed more and make them very sensitive. These should be stopped at least 2 weeks prior to the appointment.
  • People who have used Accutane within the last year as this compromises the skin and therefore makes it unsuitable for tattooing procedures.
  • People with a history of keloid scarring may POSSIBLY be candidates, assuming they’ve had tattoos with no evidence of keloiding. As with any injury, it’s possible they could develop keloiding.
  • People with uncontrolled auto-immune deficiencies - Lupus, Alopecia, etc. 
  • Pregnant women are not candidates due to the chance of an infection during after care which could harm the baby or cause pregnancy complications.
  • Patients undergoing chemotherapy will need to wait until their treatment is complete and they are healthy.
  • Individuals with melanated skin or those prone to hyperpigmentation have an increased risk of hyperpigmentation as a result of saline removal.
