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?
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.

Tattoo Removal - 1 answer
I've done maybe more than 10 sessions of laser tatto removal on 5 small and medium tattoos. They are already blurred, but are still there. After my last session they became hyperpigmented. They're reddish and look burned. I'm already depressed because of them. I don't know what else to do to make them completely gone.

I had laser tattoo removal a few days ago. My ankle is swollen going down into foot & up into calf, and now large blisters, hot & sore.

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.
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.

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?
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
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?
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.
