LASER VS. SALINE REMOVALS
Updated: Jan 30
Laser Removals vs. Saline Removals
The Laser tattoo removal process works by directing the laser energy toward the skin using highly concentrated colored light beams. The laser energy breaks down the ink particles into small fragments, which are then absorbed into the body and flushed out over time, your body's immune system will absorb the pigment and you will see the lightened tattoo.
Several sessions may be required to reach optimal results, and the exact number required will depend on various factors and circumstances. There are no incisions required with this procedure and laser tattoo removal is relatively bloodless. Only the pigment from the tattoo is targeted with this treatment so that the surrounding skin and tissue is not harmed.
Hyperpigmentation (excessive color) and hypopigmentation (excessive fading) are possible side effects associated with the procedure. There is also a risk of infection and a small risk of permanent scarring as well. The skin may appear like it has been sunburned for a few months after the treatment, but this will eventually go away.
With Saline removal, most of the tattoo ink is lifted up through the surface of the skin. Saline removal is color-agnostic, which means it works on ALL colors
When utilizing Saline Removal, your brow hair will remain intact. Laser tattoo removal will remove the hair on your brows and it may or may not ever grow back.
At Microblading Los Angeles by Tinted Liquid Beauty Lounge, our Permanent Cosmetic tattoo removal service is less painful, less expensive and produces better results than any laser removal. Our procedure is done by utilizing a hand-held pen or an electric hand-held pen to gently open the colored tattooed skin area and applying a removal serum or paste to lift the unwanted pigment. The unwanted pigment is slowly pulled to the surface of the skin and heals into a scab. When the scab falls off, that pigment falls off with it, leaving a lightened tattoo.
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.
