I've been having laser tattoo removal treatments for 3 sessions now all 6 weeks apart and I've just started a course of doxicyllin for acne going on 2ish weeks. I had the treatment and realised I probably shouldn't have.... What are the side effects? And what can I be doing to help a fast recovery?

Doxycycline and Laser tattoo removal
The medication makes your skin more sensitive to the laser. If you didn't have side effects from the laser immediately, then don't worry. This is something you need to discuss with the provider because settings will need to be adjusted in some cases.
