Tattoo Removals





If you have a previous cosmetic tattoo, or small body tattoo that you would like removing, Cleo’s Clinic is here to help. 

From old eyebrow tattoos to eyeliner, lip liner and hair line tattoos, I offer effective and safe saline tattoo removals in Bath for all kinds of clients. This method is a very safe and effective way to help lighten and remove pigment that has been implanted on the body. I can also perform an ‘emergency’ removal where the work has been done within 48 hours.

Usually when we think about removing old tattoos we tend to think about laser removal. There’s a few instances where laser may be a better option than Saline removal, however, in many cases saline would be a preferred solution.

Why Saline over Laser?

  • Tattooing skin after it has been lasered is often unsuccessful due to scar tissue, Saline method is gentler without scarring 
  • Laser can remove hair permanently, Saline method does not damage hair follicles
  • Laser can oxidise titanium white to a black or grey colour, different wavelengths are needed for different coloured pigments whereas the Saline method is not colour restricted 
  • Laser uses different wavelengths to break up the pigment into tiny fragments which then is removed by your body’s immune system whereas the Saline method 
  •  works by Osmosis, it pushes the pigment to the surface of the skin
  • Pain level with Saline is more tolerable and a topical anaesthetic is used
  • With the Saline method a tattoo can be removed within 48 hours of the procedure or a selective removal of a tattoo.

If you need help deciding on the best course of action, you are welcome to book a consultation with no obligation whatsoever.

Is there a patch test requirement?

Yes, there is a requirement although you do have an option to waiver.

How long does the procedure take?

A treatment can take anything from 2+ hours as we will have to include the discussion of the chosen procedure, which includes consent forms to be discussed and signed, and aftercare explained. Then we do a pre-draw on skin and go through colour choices and the numbing process.

What happens during the procedure?

We will discuss the options and decide which will be the best for you. I will then do a pre-draw/design on the area, before we choose a colour or colours. I will then numb there area and wait until you are ready to proceed. I will also explain how many sessions you will need for your desired look.

Will it hurt?

I want you to be completely comfortable during the procedure. I apply a topical numbing agent beforehand, and I frequently check in with you before and during the procedure for your comfort level. More numbing agent can be applied if necessary. This procedure should not cause any pain, although the degree of tolerance varies from person to person. The discomfort should not rate more than 5 out of 10, if that.

Will I be able to go back to work straight afterwards?

Yes. Typically the area will be red, swollen and with some discomfort, which will last a few hours. If you are wearing a mask then I would recommend that you give it a day before returning to work.

What to expect for the first 2 weeks and after?

Immediately after you may experience slight skin sensitivity, redness, and swelling. This should not last more than 2-3 days. An epithelial flaking of dried pigment and fluid may form of the area in the first few days. The tattooed area will be dark and this can last up to a week, the colour will soften as it heals, you will see the true colour come through within the first 4-6 weeks. I will go through the aftercare procedures with you, and you will be given a pamphlet to take home.

Do you provide aftercare?

Yes. To ensure the best results the responsibility will also rely on yourself to follow the aftercare procedures. These will be explained to you in full detail and you will be given a pamphlet to take home with you. I will answer any questions or provide information you may require.

 How long does it last?

There is no definitive answer to the longevity as it depends on a few factors as well as the pigments used, environmental factors as UV exposure, and your health and physiology.

As with any tattoo or pigment in general, fading does occur, which can require periodic maintenance every 2-5 years. This is recommended but not always necessary. Every individual has unique skin and will heal and tattoo differently.
