On Second Treatment of Laser Tattoo Removal and Im Starting to Notice Areas on the Black Ink Starting to Turn Brown?

Laser tattoo removal
There might be a few potential explanations for the brown you are noticing. The most likely explanation is that you are experiencing some post-treatment dyspigmentation. This is a possible side effect and is usually temporary. Of course, I presume you are seeing someone that has expertise in the laser treatment of tattoos such as a dermatologist or are you seeing someone in a medical spa or a general practitioners office? Having someone with expertise as above will minimize your risk for scarring and other potential side effects.
