WHAT IS the process of REMOVAL?

Originally developed for removing tattoo ink, saline solution tattoo removal turned out to be super-efficient for permanent makeup, too. This is a removal technique that implies opening the skin and extracting the unwanted pigments by implementing a chemical solution based on sea salt. The ingredients vary from brand to brand.

You can use saline solution to fade microblading and other eyebrow PMU, lip, lipliner, lip blushing, and even permanent eyeliner!



Saline removal is arguably the most efficient way to remove PMU Pigments because it allows the technician to target the remnants precisely and extract them while damaging the skin as little as possible. The effectiveness of the results depends on the saturation of the unwanted pigment, its age, the depth at which it was deposited, its formula, and the quality of the saline tattoo removal products used.




In most cases, multiple sessions are required, but with repeated extraction significant improvements can be achieved!




How Does Saline Tattoo Removal Work?

This procedure has some similarities to both tattooing and microblading, since it involves puncturing the skin to deposit a liquid. The specialist is essentially tattooing the area with saline. Usually a tattoo machine is used for saline tattoo removal, although some cosmetic artists may use microblading pens. Tattoo ink has remained in liquid form after being deposited into the skin, and saline tattoo removal uses an osmosis effect to draw it out.
Through osmosis, saline removal persuades the cells to release the ink or pigment. Osmosis relies on the principle of equalization. When there is a semipermeable membrane that has a more highly concentrated solution on one side, water tends to move across the membrane toward that concentrated solution in an 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 the 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.
