How to fix Laser Tattoo Removal Scar

currently the most effective treatment for hypopigmented scarring is the 1540 or 1550nm Fraxel laser.  It does help to blend the hypopigmentation and also improves the texture, so find a dermatologist that has Fraxel laser.

Could just be the faded tattoo

This could be just the faded tattoo. If it is thinned skin or raised, it could be a scar. The phyisician who removed the tattoo should see it and suggest treatment. It could require use of a silicone gel or maybe even surgery.
