Burnt tattoo with laser hair removal. (photos)

Two weeks ago I accidentally burnt myself with my at home laser Belair removal system. I went over one of my tattoos without realising and it's left a bad looking burn. I'm on penicillin for something else which I thought would help but it doesn't seem to be healing well. Should I get it checked?

Laser hair removal burn on a tattoo

At this point, I would use a combination of Plato's Scar Serum and Melarase cream to help smooth out the scar and promote normal healing. There is a risk of hypertrophic scarring.
