In brief: NO

Laser tattoo removal is a very nitch practice a quality laser will cost about 100k and you will likely need a second one for other colors such as green or blue ink.
It isn't cpst effective to layout this much money on lasers that basically only remove tattoos ( no hair no resurfacing, no scar reduction) so many derms don't bother. Its best to find a doctor that specialized in ltr.

In brief: Tattoo removal laser

Not all dermatologists have tattoo removal lasers.
If your dermatologist does not, ask them to recommend a colleague who does. Laser tattoo removal can be a complex process, with risk of burn and scarring if not performed properly. Go to a place that specializes if removing tattoos.
