Salt/Saline SPMU Removal Treatment


A salt/saline solution is a common, effective approach to lightening tattoos.

The treatment Process

The Salt & Saline Tattoo Removal process is a simple and effective way to lighten and often remove tattoo pigment. It’s a slow process, but it’s one that many people use because it’s safer than other forms of tattoo removal.

A salt & saline treatment is most successful when used in the removal of Semi-Permanent Pigments, however it can be used on Permanent Pigments too -  to lighten and in some cases, entirely remove a permanent tattoo.

The treatment begins by numbing the chosen area to be treated. Once the numbing cream has been on the skin for 20 minutes, a digital machine with sterile needles is used to gently puncture the dermis of top layer of skin. The salt & saline solution is then implanted into the dermis in small, circular motions to gently exfoliate the pigment away, instead of depositing the ink into the skin like a laser does. A secondary anesthetic is then applied  and the process repeated.

To complete the treatment the solution will be mixed into a paste and left to sit on the treated area for 5-10 minutes to soak into the pigment.

Depending on the area to have been treated a loose sterile gauze or a large plaster will be placed over the treated area to protect it whilst healing commences. This should be changed at least once a day for five to seven days. The area needs to be kept clean yet dry from ointment and moisture to enable a scab to form which in turn pulls pigment out with it. It is extremely important not to pick or aggravate this scab during the healing process so as not to cause scarring.


The initial treatment will heal in about four to six weeks. Once complete healing has been achieved, another treatment can be applied to the same tattoo. Lightening results should be achieved within three to four procedures, and if desired, the area can be tattooed again after the skin heals.
