Q11. Will laser tatoo removal leave a scar?
A11. The risk of scarring is low but is there nevertheless. Some people are pre-disposed towards scarring and will experience mild scar formation whereas others will be fine.
Your clinic will ask you about your medical history beforehand to identify if you are a high risk client. If you are prone to scarring or keloids then laser tattoo removal may not be suitable for you.
The biggest risk is that of skin pigmentation loss. This is where the treated area loses its natural colour and so looks paler compared to the rest of your skin.
However this tends to last for a short period of time before returning to its natural colour.
