After 15 treatments is it likely that Picosure could cause permanent hypopigmentation?

Hypopigmentation is a risk

Hypopigmentation is a risk of laser tattoo removal. It may six months or longer to resolve on its own but if it doesn't improve you may want to consider skin bleaching creams to help blend the hypopigmented areas, or even have skin colored tattoo. Sometimes exposure to UV light may help stimulate melanin production and bring back some color naturally. You can also use cosmetics to blend the area while you wait to see if it improves. Sincerely, Dr. Rosenberg.
