Is there any possibility for laser removal of a shoulder tattoo to have an impact on hair follicles? I had a transplant done and continued laser removal one month after it. I wanted to know if the laser might bounce somehow from the shoulder skin to the transplanted area or if there are some other ways that the laser might do harm to the transplanted follicles.
I’ve asked this question to four different tattoo removal experts and they all say no way in a million years could it have any impact. So i guess it only has effect on the skin where the tattoo is and don’t really go anywhere from that. When you have put over $15,000 into two surgeries you become pretty stressed about the outcome.
I am by no means an expert in laser tattoo removal, but I don’t see how a targeted laser to remove pigment on your shoulder could cause any impact to your scalp hair (transplanted or otherwise). I wouldn’t be concerned.
