Although tattoo removal is safe when performed by an experienced practitioner, tattoo removal side effects can be severe. Choosing a practitioner with experience and the right equipment is critical for a safe and effective outcome.
The main side effects of laser tattoo removal are hypopigmentation (scarring which lightens the color of the skin due to aggressive treatments), textured scarring (bumpy scars produced by overly aggressive treatments, resulting in bleeding and scabbing), and bumpy keloid scars (the raising of the skin similar to that seen in a burn).
In laser tattoo removal, the type of ink used as well as the type of skin being treated are factors that will determine the type of laser equipment required. Moreover, the practitioner performing the treatment must be experienced to assess the tattoo correctly and make the correct assessment on the type of treatment needed. Failure to select the right settings for treatment can result in tattoo removal side effects. Using the latest equipment and employing safe tattoo removal techniques by an experienced nurse or physician can minimize the possibility for any tattoo removal side effects.
