There is of course the risk that no benefit will be obtained & as with other tattoo removal processes there is the risk of scarring, hypertrophy (abnormal overgrowth), hypo-pigmentation (permanent loss of skin colour), and potentially other unforeseen forms of permanent damage to the skin. Because the skin is broken there is also the risk of infection, even though care is taken no guarantee can be given as to the outcome of the procedure. The client accepts all liability and risks of the procedure and any adverse outcomes.
