Is Laser Tattoo Removal 100% Safe?
As with any cosmetic procedure, complications can happen. But as newer laser technologies have entered the market, laser tattoo removal has become far safer than such old fashioned tattoo removal methods as dermabrasion, excision and salabrasion.
The most common laser tattoo removal side effects include risk of infection and potential scarring, hypo- or hyperpigmentation, and incomplete pigment removal. You can minimize complications by carefully following post-procedural care instructions. This may include gently cleansing the affected area, applying topical antibiotic ointment, refraining from picking at any scabs or blisters, avoiding public swimming pools, and staying out of the sun. Between sessions, allow yourself six to twelve weeks to heal.
Certain populations have a higher risk of complications. This includes smokers, the immunocompromised, and the elderly. But all individuals should discuss their medical history and all potential risks with their physician prior to treatment.
