Li-FT® Saline Lightening Solution


What is Saline Removal? Saline removal is a procedure that uses a saline solution to lift permanent makeup pigment or tattoo ink out of the skin. It can be used to lighten or fully remove bad or unwanted pigmented areas.

The Li-FT®  Saline Removal Solution is a non-chemical, non-acid, high salt based, fruit seed extract saline tattoo removal solution that is so effective it can lighten a tattoo or permanent makeup procedure to the point it is no longer visible. was formulated in an FDA approved USA Lab by the team of female Chemists at Li Pigments.  We chose specific types of natural, clean salts and combined them in different percentages to achieve the ultimate saline removal solution and results. The salts are ground down to an exceptionally fine powder eliminating any grit and allowing quick and easy implantation and absorption. We added Aloe Vera and Calendula Extract to promote quicker healing and help prevent scarring. Keep reading for a full ingredient list.

How Does Saline Removal Work? It works by the process of Osmosis. Saline is salt and water. To simply put it, Osmosis is the natural and fascinating process of how water can actually move and flow from an area of lower salt amounts to an area of higher salt amounts. Our body contains a certain amount of salt and high amounts of water. So, when we implant a higher amount of salt in the area of the unwanted pigment then what exists in the body, the water will start moving upward to the higher amount of salt. The water moving upward to the higher amount of salt implanted will move and push the pigment upward as well.  The pigment collects in the scab and when the scab falls off, the pigment collected will go off with the scab. That is how saline removal works.

The exact level of higher salt amounts needed in order to create the most effective movement upward was studied thoroughly by our chemist who also holds a degree in biology. We then tested Li-FT® in different salt percentages until we determined with 100 percent confidence, the Li-FT® saline solution is the smartest, highest tested and most effective saline solution for the purpose of lightening and removing botched ink and unwanted pigment.

Does Saline Removal Work as Good as Laser? Yes and in some cases even better! While laser tattoo removal has come a long way and can be quite successful, it is not the best choice in many cases. Lasers are color sensitive and use a pulse of energy that penetrates the skin that is absorbed by the pigment.  The pigment absorbs the energy, heats up and then shatters into tiny fragments to be removed by the body’s waste and lymphatic system.  Saline however, lifts the pigment up and out of the body. Many people today are not comfortable with pigment being pushed down into the body and moving around the lymphatic system and choose saline removal for that reason.

The color white. Many cosmetic and tattoo pigments contains white, which is technically called titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide is used to create light colors. Titanium dioxide cannot absorb the laser energy and it will not lighten. Instead, the pigment tends to darken or turn black. Saline is not color sensitive and will not turn Titanium dioxide dark or black. The Li-FT® saline solution has proven over and over that it can successfully lighten and remove pigments that contain white

Your brow hair. Lasers present the risk of weakening, destroying and removing existing brow hair. Saline will never pose this risk. If brow hair is present, choose saline. Every brow hair counts and some are hanging on to their last few for dear life. Li-FT® has never cause a single brow hair to fall out.

Does Saline Work for Microblading? Yes. Saline removal works just as effectively for microblading as it does for traditional permanent makeup procedures. We have been exceptionally successful lightening and removing poorly done microbladed eyebrows.

Does Saline Work for Body Tattoos? Yes. The saline and the Li-FT®  saline solution has been very effective in lightening and removing small body tattoos. Notice I say “small” tattoos. With the saline removal method, tattoo needles are used to implant the solution into the pigmented area, just as we implant pigment.  Using needles and traditional implantation methods would not allow us to go over a large tattoo in a timely manner. For this reason, laser is recommended for large tattoos.  A body tattoo that is the perfect size for saline removal is about the size of a deck of cards.

Is Saline Safe to Remove Bad Eyeliners? Not all saline solutions are safe or can be used for the removal of eyeliner.  However, the Li-FT® saline solution is and it can be used to lighten and remove poorly done eyeliners. This was very important to us when formulating our solution. Teryn Darling is a world renown permanent makeup artist that is well known for her beautiful eyeliner work. She spent too many years turning away clients with bad eyeliners so it became her mission to make sure Li-FT® could be used for this manner. Because it was her mission, it became Li Pigment’s mission. Here we are today with hundreds of bad eyeliners lightened and removed credited to the safe, effectiveness of Li-FT® and the techniques Teryn mastered.

Teryn’s techniques for eyeliner removal can be learned on the Girlz Ink Academy. Teryn is featured in a full length procedure video removing a migrated eyeliner with the techniques she revolutionized. Yes…even migrated eyeliners can be lightened and removed. Before Teryn started experimenting and developing the techniques to remove a migrated eyeliner, it was thought industry wide that it could not be done. It can be done and we are doing it.

How Is the Saline Solution Applied? The saline solution is implanted and tattooed right into the skin, directly into the area of the unwanted pigment just as pigment or ink is implanted into the skin to create beautiful eyebrows or a body tattoo.  A machine or hand tool method can be used.  Can I

Can I have Saline Removal if I Already Had Laser Treatments? Yes, absolutely. Laser has not been successful for many people or it hurts way too much to continue so they seek out saline removal in hopes of better results and less discomfort. Saline removal and in particularly Li-FT® accomplishes both.  Li-FT® will successfully lighten and remove pigment where laser failed to do so and it will be much more tolerable.

Does it Hurt? While everyone has a different threshold for discomfort or pain, most clients are quite comfortable during the entire procedure. Saline is salt and salt can sting. With that said, most technicians use a good numbing cream to pre-deaden the area before beginning the procedure and will apply an additional numbing agent during the procedure to keep the client comfortable. A small hand fan can be used to alleviate any stinging sensation. Every single client that has experienced laser removal before having a saline removal procedure claims that there is no comparison when it comes to laser vs. saline…laser hurts and hurts really bad. Saline removal is a piece of cake compared to laser.

What Can I Expect After the Procedure? Depending on the sensitivity of the skin, it may appear pink, very red or anywhere in between. The pink and redness can last up to three days before subsiding. It may feel slightly tender for up to three days.  The area must remain clean, dry and no makeup applied to the area so a good scab can form.  The pigment will be moving upward and collecting into the scab so scabbing is good and must be protected…no picking!  The scabbing process is done in five to seven days.  Technicians should be giving all clients a detailed and thorough healing information and instruction sheet.  Some technicians will give you the cleansing product and healing oil included in the procedure price while others will direct you where to purchase these two products.

How Many Sessions Does it Take? To be very honest, no one can predict how many sessions it will take to reach each clients individual goals.  Just as lasers, including the best lasers available can take up to 10 sessions, so can saline removal.  With that said, now that we have several thousand healed cases and data, the clients goals on average is being achieved in 3 to 4 sessions using the Li-FT® saline removal solution and techniques taught on the Girlz Ink Academy. In many cases, it is taking only one session and in other cases it can take 6 or more sessions.

How many sessions it will take depends on many factors; How deep was the pigment implanted? If the pigment was implanted too deep then more sessions may be needed. Is the color dark and solid? If so, this may require more sessions.  Does the pigment contain titanium dioxide? If so, this may require more sessions. Is the skin thin or thick, oily or dry in the area of the unwanted pigment? Pigment tends to remove more quickly with skin that is thinner and drier. Does all of the pigment need to removed or does only a portion or percentage of the pigment need to be lightened or removed?  In many cases, only a percentage or portion of the pigment needs to be removed in order to correct the shape or correct the color.  How the client cares for the removal procedure during the healing process can also play a role in the results therefore how many sessions it may take.

Although a number of sessions cannot be guarantied or predicted due to all the outside variables, what we can tell you with certainty, is that numerous technicians offering saline removal services are leaving the other saline brands and moving over to Li-FT® due to the effectiveness and results of Li-FT®.


Li-FT® is EU REACH Compliant and here is our complete list of ingredients.

We paid special attention to the consistency and viscosity of Li-FT® making sure it worked excellent for both machine and manual users. It is thin enough to work with all machines and thick enough that it sticks to the hand tool.

Li-FT® is safe to use on all procedures including eyeliners. Just like our anesthetics, although they can be used around the eye area, if any gets into the eye, the client may experience some stinging and burning. It is important to protect the eye. We recommend applying a drop of Lubricant Eye Gel to the eye prior to the procedure to coat and hydrate the eye. Always keep a bottle of Sterile Eyewash handy for flushing during the procedure.
The formulation, the safety, the effectiveness, and the versatility of Li-FT® is why it so quickly became the number one saline lightening product in the industry and just keeps proving itself worthy of that title.
