SALINE TATTOO REMOVAL
Saline tattoo removal involves tattooing a specialized saline solution over your existing tattoo. The solution lifts the existing pigment molecules from the skin by the process of osmosis. A scab will form, which further lifts the previously placed pigment. The number of sessions needed depends on the saturation and size of your tattoo.
Why Saline over Laser? Saline is all-natural removal method, typically costs 30-50% less than laser tattoo removal, requires fewer sessions, and is less painful. It is also color-agnostic, so it works on all colors of ink. Saline is also gentler than laser and best suited for the delicate eye area.
How much does it cost?
Removal is priced on a per-session basis, and multiple sessions will be needed depending on the saturation of your current tattoo. Each session is $200, and this applies to either previous eyebrow permanent makeup, previous lip permanent makeup, or a 3"x3" body tattoo. For pricing quotes for larger tattoos, please schedule a consultation.
Does it hurt?
We use two topical numbing agents to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. That being said, everyone is unique in their pain tolerance and sensitivity to numbing.
What will it look like immediately after the procedure?
While every client is different, your previous tattoo can look darker or brighter while it is healing. Once the scabs come off, you will see the tattoo has lightened.
What is healing like?
Expect brightness, darkness, bleeding, and bruising in the procedure area. Your body will form a scab which will pull pigment from your tattoo. Prematurely removing scabs will affect healing time.
How many sessions will I need?
This is completely dependent on the saturation of your current tattoo and your removal goals. Typical removal requires anywhere from 1-5 sessions, with 3-4 being the most common. Sessions are spaced 8 weeks apart.
How old do I have to be?
Under California law, you must be 18 years or older to book an appointment.
What if I’m pregnant or nursing?
Purely as a precaution, we will not perform procedures on pregnant or nursing women.
