Missing colors in tattoo treatment
Tattoo removal works very well with the new lasers available. Perhaps the wrong laser was used since the red was skipped. Hydroquinones will not work since the ink is much deeper and will not respond to topical bleaching agents. I suggest you return to your treating physicians for evaluation and follow-up. As with all cosmetic procedures please make sure they have a great deal of experience with tattoos for the best results.
