Laser Tattoo Removal -1 answer
I had 4 laser tattoo removal treatments. After 4 weeks I have been suffering from a headache that does not go away. I have tried everything — migrane tablets, antibotics and nothing works. Could you please advise me on what to do? I've missed two weeks of work because of this.

Does the skin get uneven after peeling from laser tattoo removal?
Laser Tattoo Removal -1 answer
I have two tattoos on both hands. It's been 16 days since the first laser tattoo removal session. 40% of the ink from my one tattoo has been removed and the rest is fading. But while the skin dried up and peeled, the tattoo portion got uneven. I use A&D ointment and both the tattoos are very itchy now. The small one sometimes gets reddish. Sometimes the peeled portion gets white. Please suggest what to do.

Laser Tattoo Removal -1 answer
I've had 5 laser treatments to remove my tattoo. It's almost gone. But, I stopped treatment to have a baby. I've been reading and doing research. I'm just not sure if it'll get into my bloodstream and become damaging to the baby.

My skin turned dark red after the laser tattoo removal. Will the redness go away? It's been 3 months and it's still dark brownish red.
Laser Tattoo Removal -1 answer
I did microblading 3 months ago. I immediately regretted it and few weeks later I did laser tatto removal (Q switch). So far I did 3 laser sessions and every time it makes my skin red and it doesn't remove the ink. I tried at different places and it's always the same result. I now have two very red eyebrows with the tattoo. It's really bad.

Can laser break up oxidized and darkened eyebrow pigment inks? Particularly titanium and iron metals pieces.
Laser Tattoo Removal -1 answer
Are these metal pieces impossible to break up? I have had darkening of my semi-permanent eyebrow upon my first laser removal with Picosure yesterday. It has turned it from light brown to a darker brown.

I’ve had 10+ tattoo removal treatments on a small tattoo (black ink) on the upper part of my thigh. Skin is still itchy months Later. Is that normal?
Laser Tattoo Removal -1 answer
Sometimes my skin will form like a random weird bump in the region where I had treatments. I still have a few more to go. Should I continue? My complexion is darker, more of a dark tan complexion so the laser has taken away some of my pigment and it looks splotchy. Is the random itchiness and occasional bump normal? Should I continue until the tatto is gone? Also I was worried about developing some type of skin cancer if I continue, is that possible? Thank you!

I have had 2 tattoo removal sessions on forearm on blk and gray. a year later The area is sensitive to sunlight. it gets itchy and swollen. pleasehelp
Laser Tattoo Removal -1 answer
I had 2 sessions of tattoo removal and my last treatment was June 2016. It is just black and gray on my forearm. The removal seems to have worked. But now I have sensitivity to sunlight in the area. It gets itchy and swollen. They sent me to see their doctor on site and she did a biopsy to rule out sarcoidosis. But now she doesn't know what it is and has just prescribed me Eucrisa. It looks like this medication is just for swelling and I'm going to have to apply it forever. Please help.

I saw improvment after 6 sessions using picoway but had to move and use picsure for my 7th session and tattoo looks darker than before is this normal?
Laser Tattoo Removal -1 answer
Hi. I have been going to see doctors about my tattoo and have been using PicoWay for up to six sessions, and have I've seen marked improvement each time but as soon as I started using PicoSure, I realized that the tattoo got darker like a dark smudge, even where there was little to no ink. Is this ink or just bruising? I don't know where all that extra ink could have come from. Instead of improving, it got worse.

Laser Tattoo Removal -2 answers
My friend, Anthony, is a young man. He has had no parental support for years and has been trying to get ahead financially and personally. He has several tattoos, but one on his hand is uncoverable and holds him back from better employment opportunities. He makes about $11/hr at a warehouse job, but he is articulate and intelligent. He has so much potential. I want to help him. Are there any pro bono tattoo removal programs available to Anthony?
