The Non-Laser technique of removal is beneficial for clients who are not suited to laser, have unwanted cosmetic tattoo, clients who require a correction but the old tattoo is too dark or bright to go over with new tattoo. This technique can even partially remove a session of an old brow tattoo that doesn't sit into your new shape correction. A salt solution is 'tattooed' into the skin at the site of the old pigment. The technique performed, creates a wound that can dry up into a hard scab which acts as a sponge to draw out the pigment particles which have been agitated by the needle and draw out of the skin by the hypertonic state of the solution and osmotic pressure. Laser Tattoo Removal however works by using light to break up the pigment (ink) that penetrates deep enough down into the skin and then absorbed by the pigment. The intense light breaks up the pigment into tiny fragments and it removed by the body’s immune system. Non laser Saline removal brings the pigment up and out of the skin.
Sessions MUST be placed 6-8 weeks apart. There is no telling how many treatments will be required, but you can expect visible and wanted results in 3 to 6 sessions. How many sessions needed will depend on how saturated the pigment is, how it is implanted and how much needs to be removed for the desired result. In many cases only a percentage of the density needs to be lightened/removed and then we can continue the correction process but colour correcting. Please remember, results cannot be foreseen, predicted or guaranteed.
Why not come into clinic, meet Katelan, and have a chat about all questions and concerns. A 30min consultation can be arranged where Katelan will cover treatment information, healing process, contraindications and any questions you may have in regard to a particular treatment. It is also very important to know, that not all styles are suited to every person. Various techniques are used which can be limited to certain skin types.
This is a great option if you simply want to know more and Katelan encourages this to ensure you know whether you would like to go ahead with a treatment.
Non-Laser Removal is ideal for clients wishing to remove semi-permanent cosmetic tattoos. In certain circumstances, some clients require Laser removal as well as non laser removal. This is dependent on how long the cosmetic tattoo has been in the skin for. If your unsure, contact Katelan to arrange a complimentary removal consultation.
Non-Laser Removal requires patience and commitment. There is no telling how many treatments but you can expect visible and wanted results in 3 to 6 sessions. How many sessions needed will depend on how saturated the pigment is, how it is implanted and how much needs to be removed for the desired result. In many cases only a percentage of the density needs to be lightened/removed and then we can continue the correction process but colour correcting. Please remember, results cannot be foreseen, predicted or guaranteed.
Sessions must be spaced 6-8 weeks apart to give the skin time to heal in-between.
You can be tattooed again, however, in most cases microblading will not work due to the change in the skin structure after all the removal sessions. A Powder or Ombre Style is usually advised. We suggest, at minimum, 6 months is waited before tattooing the skin again for the best results. This will be at Katelan's discretion, however it is advised that any scar tissue has turned white, and is not still pink from healing as this will run the risk of more scarring and colour rejection.
