Salt/Saline Treatment Process.. The first step of the salt/saline treatment is similar to the process of traditional tattooing: a technician will use a device similar to an ink-gun to tattoo the salt/saline solution into the treatment area. This punctures the top layer of skin, opening the area. Then, a salt paste is applied to the skin, which draws the tattoo pigment to the skin’s surface and gently exfoliates it away. Clients should expect three to four procedures before they see desired results. With this method of tattoo removal, clients can expect the tattoo to become lighter, but a full removal should not be expected. The skin can be re-tattooed after the treatment area heals.
WHAT CAN THE CLIENT EXPECT DURING AND AFTER TREATMENTS?
During treatment, the client should expect some minor bleeding and some bruising. The treated area will also be tender for a few days. The skin should scab over and heal over the course of a few weeks. Fading will happen gradually over several months.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THIS PROCEDURE?
The tattoo will become lighter and may possibly fade completely over time. This removal technique is safe for all skin types. The salt/saline tattoo removal is safer and has fewer risks of hypo/hyperpigmentation, blistering, and scarring than laser removal treatments. The skin may be re-tattooed once the area has sufficiently healed.
WHO ARE THE BEST CANDIDATES?
Individuals who are patient and willing to follow aftercare instructions are ideal candidates. Clients on blood-thinning medications or who expect immediate results are not ideal candidates for this treatment.
WHAT FINAL RESULTS CAN THE CLIENT EXPECT?
Clients should be realistic in their expectations. They should expect a lightening of the tattoo, not full removal. Clients should expect three to four procedures before they see the desired results.
