Bruising after laser tattoo removal
It is not typical to get bruising and swelling of the arm after laser tattoo treatment on the forearm. It's not likely related to the laser itself, but instead an effect of either arm positioning or manipulation during the treatment process. Best to touch base with the provider who did the treatment.
