My eyebrow tattoo removal test spot went darker, should I go through with laser removal?
6 months ago
I have eyebrow tattoo's that I dislike and would like removed. They are about 8 years old and have been touched up almost every year in brown ink. A few months ago I had a test spot done with a dual wavelength Q switch Yag laser. The spot went darker, I would say grey/black. Should I go through with laser tattoo removal? I can imagine that after the first session they will go darker but will they eventually lighten after several treatments? Thank you,

If you got paradoxical darkening you may need to find an alternative approach. Picosecond lasers may help. Best, Dr. Emer.
