Jessica is a highly skilled advanced technician who is able to advise on Tattoo removal and colour correction. We are able to help women who have undertaken permanent make up treatments by other clinics who are not satisfied with the work that was carried out and advise on the best course of action.
We are proud to use Xiled, a gentle pigment lightening solution that does not contain ingredients that harm or cause damage to the melatonin skin pigment. This hypertonic salt solution releases the ink bond, during the scabbing process the ink is pulled to the surface by the scab, It is the body’s natural healing process that removes or lightens the pigment when the scab falls off.
We normally recommend 2-6 sessions spaced 4-8 weeks apart to fade the ink depending on ink depth and quality of ink used. Xiled is safe for the eye and lip area.
Jessica Amanda is also able to advise in colour correction if the pigment has faded to an unwanted colour, all which can be discussed during a complimentary consultation. Treatments are affordably priced and start from £150.
What is saline tattoo removal
A specialized, all-natural saline solution (I use Li-FT by Li pigments) is implanted over your existing permanent makeup Li-FT contains finely milled sea salt, purified water, lemon seed extract, orange seed extract, and aloe. Implanting the solution into the skin breaks up the healed pigment, and begins to lift the pigment out of the skin by osmosis; a process by which molecules of a solvent tend to pass through a semipermeable membrane from a less concentrated solution into a more concentrated one, thus equalizing the concentrations on each side of the membrane.
The pigment is slowly pulled to the surface of the skin and heals into a scab. When the scab falls off, that pigment falls off with it, leaving a lightened tattoo.
What are the main ingredients in LI-FT?
Lift contains: pure sea salt, hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC), lemon and orange seed extract, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, aloe, barbadensis leaf juice and purified water; which is a non-toxic, non-acidic fading solution. Liftdoes not contain ingredients that harm or damage the client’s melatonin skin pigment.
What is the difference between laser and saline tattoo removal?
1.With laser the removed pigment/ ink is absorbed into the body, in comparison to with saline removal where most of the pigment id lifted up through the surface of the skin.
2. Each Laser machine emits certain wavelengths of light targeting only certain colours within the pigment mix, saline removal does not just target one colour meaning by using saline removal all colours can be removed from the skin.
3. Laser tattoo removal cannot target white ink which is included in many saturated colours in permanent make up pigment whilst saline removal can as a general colour I not targeted through this method.
4. Laser is often more expensive then Saline removal. Laser can often cost £200-500 per session and if you are under going Laser removal some colours will not be diminished.
Dry healing has resulted in optimum results, however, if you are active in high-risk areas an occlusive wound dressing for several days is required to prevent bacterial invasion of the wound. Some high-risk areas would include but are not limited to:
• Exercise Gyms
• Home care facilities
• High public traffic areas such as hotels, airports, grocery stores, etc.
Written aftercare instructions should include the need for the client to 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 slightly moist paper towel
The procedural area should be cleansed with a product such as Cetaphil or Cerave; gentle products without fragrance, acidic ingredients, etc.
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, and also require removal which entails contact with the crusts of the tattoo lightened area.
The treatment area must be kept dry when bathing. Blot moisture away with paper towel.
Underno circumstances should the crusts that develop over the wound be removed. The crusts will become less noticeable with the natural exfoliation of the dead skin cells that are naturally replaced by the body during the healing process.
Clients should be advised that if any sign of infection is seen, they should consult their physician
Is LI LIFT Saline solution safe?
This removal technique is safe for all skin types. The salt/saline tattoo removal is safer and has fewer risks of hypo/hyperpigmentation, blistering, and scarring than laser removal treatments. The skin may be re-tattooed once the area has sufficiently healed.
Does saline solution hurt?
As the saline is introduced to the pigment, the ink will be extracted from the skin. Unlike other types of tattoo removal, with saline eyebrow tattoo removal, the skin remains intact and the process is much less painful than other removal processes. Waiting periods between treatments are between 4 and 6 weeks.
