The first step of the saline treatment is similar to the process of traditional tattooing: a DermaHealth technician will use a device similar to an ink gun to tattoo the 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. Our technician can treat up to a 4-by-4-inch area in one sitting.
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.
