White outline on tattoo - can I still get the whole tattoo removed?

A Cautious Approach
Tattoo removal white and black
I would recommend a test patch on your first visit to see how the white ink responds to the laser. The Picoway is amazing at removing tattoos. That being said the darker the ink the easier it is to remove the discolorations. The white ink can turn darker with laser therapy so a test should be performed to see how the ink responds to the laser. If the ink turns dark then it will respond better on future sessions to the laser therapy. Hope this helps.
PicoWay Removes All Tattoo Colors
The PicoWay fractionated laser is a safe way to use high-power energy to break up and remove tattoo inks of various colors. Black is the easiest to remove. You don't mention if you want the white dots removed also, but if so PicoWay can handle those, too. Please talk to a board-certified dermatologist with many years' experience with successful tattoo removal; you will probably require at least five sessions.
