Skin Grafting & Tattoo Removal
I am covered in freckles, mostly arms, face, and legs - mostly genetic, not skin damage. I had a tattoo on my arm lasered off in 2008. Unfortunately (and regrettably), it has left me with no freckles on a section of my arm. With that being said - I'd take the scarring and lack of freckles over the tattoo.
I currently draw on freckles with eye liner to blend the skin tones and make less noticable. My friend recommended skin grafting - or something along those lines. I dont know what another less-surgical procedure would be called. My arm is fully healed, so there's no open skin. Is it at all possible to 'graft' a patch of freckles/skin on the back of my leg and reconstruct on my arm?
Please help. Greatly appreciated.

that is a very good question. i don't know if they can do that or not. in todays world they can do almost anything so i imagine there may be some hope.

Yup that can be done. But you may still have scar and in some cases it might be even ugly than ur current. I can't see the pic properly (very small), if u could post a larger one we might suggest u for more alternatives, but i guess its better to get suggestion from a dermatologist regarding"repigmentation therapy", like in vitiligo using psoralen or any tanning accelerators, they might work well in some cases.

any additional info is greatly appreciated. i suppose i wouldnt care if the scarring was worse than now, as long as it wasnt overly obvious that something as stupid as that tattoo was lasored off!
