Contrary to popular belief, it is very rare to scar from getting a tattoo removed. A scar shouldn’t be left when using the correct type of laser. It is safe and effective on ALL skin types and has been successful in treating almost all colors. Tattooing itself may scar or change skin texture, an effect often hidden by the dyes. If laser removal uncovers skin changes, you may be left with what looks like a “ghost” of your old tattoo, although rare. Of course, it is important to follow aftercare recommendations to ensure a fast and healthy healing process.
