Tattoo Removal

Hi Girls,

I have a small tattoo I want to get rid of!

Have any of you had laser removal? If so do you now have a patch of lighter coloured skin where the tattoo was or is it not noticeable.

My tattoo is quite small.

Thanks

I'm in the process of getting a tattoo removed on my lower stomach. I haven't had any scaring or white patches around it. It is actually taking the laser really well. I can post pics tomorrow of my progress if you'd like

I have had 1 tattoo removed (on the belly) and it did not leave a white mark. The tattoo was mostly black, and it slowly faded and disappeared after several treatments. Now the skin looks normal. I think the key to not damaging the skin is not be too agressive with the treatment and to be patient, letting it heal completely before each subsequent treatment. I am light-skinned already, so I'm not sure if that makes a difference. Good luck!

I had a tattoo removed - large on my breast, it did leave a white scar that is only visible when I tan - I got it removed prior to getting implants, the implants actually made the scar less visible.

This was back in 2002, and I think the lasers now are less likely to leave any scarring. My theory was always: I would rather have a light scar that is barely seen, than a huge boob tattoo I hate.

I am currently having a tattoo removed.. I have had 4 treatments and it hasn't left any scars or dis coloring.. Just be prepared that it will take a few treatments... Mine was very light but some of the colors take more to get rid of! Good luck girlie
