Permanent Makeup & Tattoo Removal
Some mistakes you don’t have to live with
Li-FT® Out Unwanted Ink
Li-FT® is an all-natural saline solution for removing old or poorly done permanent makeup including eyebrows, eyeliner, lip liner, faux freckles and lip blush. It’s also an alternative to laser tattoo removal for small to medium-sized tattoos.
How LiFT® Works
Unlike laser tattoo removal which uses high-intensity energy and heat to destroy ink molecules, Li-FT® breaks down the pigments and lifts them out of the skin by osmosis. During the procedure, the saline solution is tattooed into the skin manually or with a tattoo pen, causing the area to open and then scab over. As the scab heals and falls off, it takes some of the pigment from the tattoo with it. The process is repeated several times until the tattoo or makeup (PMU) is faded to the desired level. This technique is considered to be less painful, safer and more affordable than other tattoo removal methods and is not known to cause burning or scarring (unlike laser).
What to Expect
The process begins by prepping the treatment area with a local anesthetic. Once the area is numbed, the saline solution is placed under the skin using the same methods as tattooing and permanent makeup. Afterwards, the skin will begin to heal itself and may scab over. The scabbing is important because the pigmented ink rises to the surface of the skin where it becomes trapped inside the scab. The healing process takes about eight weeks by which the scab falls off with the ink particles, and the underlying skin heals itself.
Results are understandably dependent upon a number of factors including the types of ink/pigment used, particle size, saturation, depth, number of layers, skin color, texture and quality, how much ink is present, the person’s ability to heal and more. Due to these factors, the number of sessions needed to remove a tattoo or permanent makeup cannot be predicted or guaranteed. Please schedule a consultation for an evaluation of the permanent makeup or tattoo you would like removed and to discuss realistic expectations.
Emergency Li-FT® removals may be done on ink and pigments within 48-72 hours of treatment. Results cannot be guaranteed but removal success rates are highest immediately after the ink was placed.
