I had two laser tattoo removal sessions for a black tattoo on my forearm. I think I got burned from the third treatment. I have a reddish purple color that turns white when pressed. Will it ever go away? I'm using aloe vera lotion on it everyday.

Post-inflammatory erythema not uncommon after laser procedure
Most likely you have experienced post-inflammatory erythema (PIE), which is not uncommon after laser procedure. It should eventually fade over time. You can apply antioxidant green tea and/or vitamin C serum/creams to facilitate resolution. Worse case scenario, you may consider PDL laser to minimize PIE.
