Saline Removal Aftercare Information

Thank you for choosing The Skin Hub for your Saline Removal. Please read and follow these instructions carefully to ensure proper healing and optimal results. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call us at 0499 382 762.


It is critical to follow all aftercare instructions to prevent complications, scarring and to achieve optimum results. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

  • Keep the area clean and open to the air. Do not cover with a Band-Aid or anything else. Air/oxygen provides faster healing. You should not be touching the area at all, but if you find yourself needling to, please make sure your hands are exceptionally clean.
  • Do not soak the treated area in water. You can shower as normal, but keep the area out of the shower spray the best you can and do not let the area stay wet for more than a few minutes. No soaking in water or the scab will be destroyed.
  • No Bathing, Swimming, Saunas, Hot Tubs, Tanning or Intense Exercise.
  • Do not disrupt the scabbing process (i.e. no picking, scratching, etc). All scabbing needs to fall off naturally. If you force or pick a scab off, you will disrupt the healing process.
  • Treat the area with TLC. The edges can be wiped clean from any dripping blood, the site should be left alone and not get wet for 24 hours. Once the scab is formed, bathing is normal but wash the area gently with your fingers and soap and rinse. Keep the area clean and absolutely no creams. If it itches and it is a safe area other than around the eyes, dab with a little alcohol.
  • Once all scabbing has naturally fallen off, apply one pump of DMK Beta Gel twice per day throughout the day every day for a minimum of 4 weeks, or until next lightening session. Do not start applying Beta Gel until all scabbing has completely fallen off. It is our goal to keep the area as dry as possible until all scabs have naturally fallen off.
  • LIPS - please drink all liquids with a straw until all scabbing has naturally fallen off. No whitening, no peroxide toothpastes. Cut food into small bites, no biting into a sandwich. Try to keep mouth expressions to a minimum.
  • It is important to the process and integrity of the skin, that 8 full weeks of healing take place before another lightening session can be done. No exceptions.
  • Lightening and/or removing unwanted pigment is a long process and patience is required. This is true whether you are choosing a lightening service or laser.

Please be patient and give the process a fair chance to work. Expect visible and wanted results in 3 to 6 sessions.

How many sessions needed will depend on how saturated the pigment is, how deep it was implanted and how much needs to be removed for the desired result. In many cases, only a percentage of density needs to be lightened/removed and then we can continue the correction process by colour correcting.

In those cases, where we have pigment misplaced or in an unwanted area, colour correcting will not be an option and removing as much of the pigment as possible will be our ultimate goal.

Results cannot be forseen or guaranteed.
