Non-laser removal, also known as saline removal, is a method of removing pigment from skin cells using simple solutions rather than lasers. Saline removal actually removes ink from the body, whereas a method such as laser removal, breaks up the ink into smaller fragments and may push pigment deeper into the skin, only to then be processed by your lymphatic system.

  • Will this work for my tattoo?

    This works on both cosmetic tattoos and conventional tattoos, done with any type of machine or manual tool. Your tattoo must be at least 30 days old before removal. UNLESS you do an emergency removal within 48 hours of getting your tattoo. This is because the skin is not closed yet and we can soak the tattoo in our solution.

    Saline removal is not suitable for medium-large tattoos. Black tattoos are often more resistant to removal, meaning you may need an extra session or two. If your unwanted tattoo is covered in thick scar tissue, it may require more sessions to remove.
