Saline Tattoo Removal

What Is Li-FT Removal?

Saline solution is a common, effective approach to lightening tattoos. However, it is a slower process than other treatments, this method is popular because it is much safer than other removal procedures. Li-FT saline product has recently been developed to remove unwanted pigment from tattoos. This service is done using the same traditional equipment (machine, needles, etc) used in the tattooing process. However, instead of pigment, this saline solution is implanted into the skin. A sterile solution is tattooed into the skin to make the skin reject the pigment.

Microbladed eyebrows are one of the most tricky procedures to reverse, because of more aggressive pigment implant method and trauma caused by the cuts from the microblade. Not all clients who have had previous permanent makeup procedure are good to refresh clients. Sometimes their past color is too saturated to get them their desired look, whether it is softer, a different color or just light hair strokes. A saturated brow will not hold good color.

The procedure is basically an osmosis process. Li-FT works using osmosis and your body's natural healing process to lift pigment up to the surface. This method of removal decreases the chance of causing lasting damage to your melanocytes (color-producing skin cells), and permanently affecting the integrity of the skin. This type of removal is safer and has fewer risks of hypo or hyperpigmentation, as well as blistering and scarring than laser treatments.

It can benefit those who have had an old permanent cosmetic tattoo procedure, some mistakes as well as remove other blurred, discolored or misshaped eyebrows. The healing time is similar to initial pigmentation. Relatively nontraumatic to the client with little to no downtime.

Clients should expect three to four procedures before they see some results. Clients must be realistic in their expectations, they should expect a lightening of the tattoo, not full removal. Many time it is only necessary to remove a small part of the color in order to give new eyebrows. This is why a consultation is necessary to determine what level or removal or lightening is best.

 

Results will vary depending on but not limited to:

  • The client’s skin condition

  • Health profile

  • The ability to heal well

  • The type and color of the pigment to be lightened

  • Depth of pigment placement

  • Compliance with the Li-FT aftercare instructions

 

Some tattoo lightening procedures will be more or less successful than others based on these factors. Once an acceptable amount of pigment is removed, you can opt for a new eyebrow procedure.

Aftercare

Clients with special events, travel plans, or who work in an environment with the probability of high bacterial exposure should choose the right timing for the lightening procedure so aftercare instructions do not conflict with these activities or work schedules.

  • You must heal a minimum of 8 weeks between each removal sessions and 12 weeks before re-tattooing the area.

  • Keep the treated area dry

  • Avoid exercising, swimming, sweating, gyms, high public traffic areas such as hotels, airports, grocery stores, etc.

  • Avoid contact with the procedural area directly with hands that have not been thoroughly washed.

  • For several hours, and in some instances longer, the wound may weep lymph blood and fluid. These fluids can be blotted off by applying pressure (no rubbing) with a clean paper towel or tissue

  • The procedural area should be cleaned with a gentle product such as Cetaphil, Neutrogena or Cerave (gentle products without fragrance, acidic ingredients)

  • Topical cosmetics may not be applied over the procedural area to diffuse or hide the appearance of the wound. Cosmetics may contain ingredients that are contraindicative to healing wounds, may contain bacteria

  • Keep the tattoo lightened area dry when bathing. This is more difficult for body art tattoos. While showering, people who have had cosmetic tattoos lightened may turn their back to the shower spray and gently blot off any moisture with a paper towel.

  • Under no circumstances should the crusts that develop over the wound be removed.

  • If you will notice any sign of the infection consult with a doctor

Q&A

Is it less painful then Laser removal?

Yes it is, since we are not using a laser machine that is made to produce a pulse output beam. Essentially the tattoo is tattooed over and implanting with the LI-FT pigment lightning solution. Technician is allowed to numb the area before and during the procedure with numbing products

Is LI-FT removal better than Laser Removal?

LI-FT removal is perfect for smaller removals such as eyebrows, lips. Eyeliner, areola/nipples and simplistic tattoos. Laser is perfect for larger very detailed tattoos

What to expect from LI-FT removal?

Some clients (not all) will bleed and get very red this is normal for some. You may experience swelling, redness, bleeding and some more then others. Everybody heals differently. Depending on how your skin reacts with any removal you do run the risk of scarring and Hypo/Hyper-pigmentation.

Can we remove migrated PMU?

Yes, as long as your technician is properly trained. Added risk are pigment can be caused to migrate deeper into the skin. 

How many sessions will it take?

It all depends on if titanium is present in the pigment, how many layers, how saturated the pigment is, where is the removal located, integrity of clients skin, healing history, aftercare and how much pigment needs to be removed

What is the healing process like?

The area can stay pink or discolored for several weeks or on some people it might take a few months for it to completely go away. You do run the risk of hypo/hyper pigmentation. You will experience some scabbing which is totally normal and is a good sign. The unwanted pigment will be drawn up into the scab so it is important to keep the scab as long as possibly. Let it fall off naturally


How long in between do I have to wait per session?

Under no circumstance is a lightning procedure  to be performed again within 8 weeks. Skin needs time to heal
