When removing a tattoo with the proper laser the risk of scaring is under 5%. Recently I have had patients
present to the office with severs burns and one scar that has limited the motion in his arm!
In every instance they were at a place that was not physician run, one had no physician the other a phantom physician seen once in a rare while.
This is dangerous and a risk to your overall mental and physical health. Always look for the doctor before you start and make sure they know about tattoo removal. Just because you are an MD does not mean you are a laser expert.
