One of the main concerns of patients who undergo laser tattoo removal is potential side effects. Fortunately most patients don’t experience anything more than slight discomfort of the affected area. It is important to note that the removal site may be at risk of infection.
Hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation may also be concerns with laser removal. Cosmetic tattoos such as eyeliner and eyebrows may become darker after they are treated with lasers, but further treatment generally results in lightening.
