The side effects of laser tattoo removal are actually very minimal. Occasionally, people will experience some skin colour changes. You could have hyperpigmentation where the skin goes a little bit darker. That usually resolves in about a year.
You could have hypopigmentation, where the skin loses a little bit of colour. And again, that usually resolves in about a year.
One of the other potential side effects is potential hair loss in the area, although that is very rare.
The short term effects – you might expect to see a little bit of pinpoint bruising, we call it, a little bit of swelling and redness to the area. Those effects usually resolve in about 24 hours.
Occasionally, some blistering will occur. That is a natural effect from the pressure of the laser beam hitting the skin. It’s to be expected – nothing to worry about and you treat it like any minor wound.
