FAQ REMOVAL

What is saline tattoo removal?


Saline lightening/removal is a method of lifting/removing pigment from the skin using saline solutions instead of laser. Li-FT is a unique saline removal formula like not other in the world made by Li Pigments. No chemicals, no acids. All natural salt and fruit seed extract.




Why should I choose saline removal over laser removal?


Laser works by producing a short pulse of intense light penetrating the skin breaking up the pigments into tiny fragments. Those fragments are pushed back into the body and removed by lymph or waste system. Saline is implanted over your existing healed tattoo or permanent makeup starting to lift up the pigment out of the skin by osmosis. The pigment is slowly pulled up to the surface of the skin healing into a scab. The scab then falls off leaving a lightned tattoo. Also: Laser can permanently remove brow hair Tattooing your skin AFTER it has been lasered is often unsuccessful due to scar tissue Pain level Laser pushes pigment back into your body, saline will lift it up and out of your body




Will it work on my tattoo?


Saline removal/lightning works on both cosmetic tattoos and conventional tattoos of any colour. While it is effective I don't recommend this procedure for medium-large sized tattoos. Depending how old, deep & dark the pigment is, several sessions will be required. A free consultation is highly recommend!




Does it hurt?


The removal procedure is done with a pmu device. The area will be numbed with a topical cream for maximum comfort. After the procedure you will feel some tenderness to the area.




How long is the procedure?


Each session is no longer than 1hr. But the removal process can take many month, as clients typically need 3-5 sessions spaced out by 8 weeks to achieve the desired results.




What is Emergency Removal?


Emergency saline removal can be done within 48hrs of the tattoo/permanent makeup procedure. The earlier the better. Since the skin has not formed its epidural crust great results come from emergency removal.
