Since lazer tattoo removal bypasses the epidermis and gets to the dermis is it possible to be scarred? I'm confused what to look up in terms of burns first degree or second. I had my first treatment and I'm African American after 7 days my scabs came off a lot of the areas are pink and its very striking and I'm worried as its on a large area the skin on-top is smooth and healed but its pink will this go away or am I basically scarred for life.
