Hypertrophic Scar After Laser Tattoo Removal

I just recently had tattoo removal that left me with hypertrophic scarring on my upper arm. The tattoo was lasered pretty deep into my skin. Then the ink was picked out. What type of revision or scar removal will work?

i'm not sure why the pigment was picked out. With laser removal we let the body's healing response do its own work. If you have developed a thick scar, silastic gel sheeting dressings, and Vbeam laser meay help.
