When discussing how to remove a tattoo with laser treatment, it’s essential to mention possible side effects. While side effects are much less common through laser treatment than other methods – such as dermabrasion or excision – you can still experience adverse consequences. Here are some possible side effects:
- Increased risk of infection on the site.
- A slight chance of permanent scarring on the skin.
- One hundred percent removal is often impossible, but removing black, blue, or red colours offers the best result.
- Hypo- or hyperpigmentation is possible, leaving the skin lighter or darker than surrounding areas.
