Salt saline removal is done with a cosmetic tattoo machine. We use a fine needle to deposit salt saline in the upper layer (epidermis) of the skin where the old tattoo is present. The salt saline remover slowly breaks down the old pigment and disposes of it through the scabbing after the treatment and lymph drainage system of the body.
Multiple sessions will be needed to completely remove your old microblading/permanent makeup depending on the density of the old pigment remaining in the skin. After each session you can expect the treated area to be slightly lighter when healed.
If you are unhappy with your previously done semi permanent makeup, we recommend you to book a consultation so that we can discuss your options in more detail. In most cases it is possible to correct your previous work.
Things to remember before your treatment:
– Avoid sunbathing, waxing, skin peels around the area and laser treatments at least 2 weeks before your treatment.
– No alcohol, caffeine or blood thinning (for example aspirin) medicines 24 hours before your treatment.
– Inflamed skin (around the treated area).
– Area will be slightly bloody with a white residue because of the salt saline after treatment, so take this in consideration when you make your booking.
– Do not discontinue any medication without your doctor’s consent.
– You cannot donate blood up to 6 months after your treatment.
Consultation, treatment and aftercare:
Before Annette starts doing any cosmetic treatment she has an in depth consultation with her client. She offers expert pigment removal treatments and you can rest assured that you are in safe hands. You will have the option for a patch test if you have any concerns of an allergic reaction. If not, the procedure can be done on the same day.
Once we are happy to proceed, we will apply a numbing cream that stays on for 20 minutes. During the treatment we will use a secondary anaesthetic to control the sensation. You can expect the treated area to be slightly stingy as we inject and apply the salt saline remover onto the skin. The area will appear slightly bloody with a white residue after the permanent makeup removal procedure. This will disappear after about 1 – 2 days. During this time (1st week) it is recommended to avoid touching the area, use of cosmetic creams, sunbathing or wet the area. You will be a little bit more scabby and have more lymph fluid than the usual permanent makeup treatment. We recommend dry healing for this treatment. You can clean the area with clean cotton wool and cooled boiled water once or twice a day. It takes up to 7 -10 days for the scabs to heal and 4 – 6 weeks for the area to lighten and completely heal. We will book in your next appointment 4-6 weeks after your initial treatment.
