Laser Tattoo Removal Scars Dallas|Plano|Frisco|Addison
When tattoos are removed with Q-switched laser treatment, scarring is unlikely as long as the procedure was properly carried out and there is good aftercare. Tattoo removal scars after laser tattoo removal may occur as a result of the following:
• If your skin is predisposed to kelloids formation
• Infection of the affected area due to poor aftercare
• A pre-existing scar on your skin
• A scar from a previous tattoo or tattoo removal procedure
• Injury or trauma to the affected area while healing
