I suffered a severe 3rd-4th degree burns after receiving a laser treatment to my tattoo, can this be considered medical malpractice?

Question Details: This took place in a physician's office but was done by a technician who only had written permission to do a bikini hair laser removal. The technician offered to treat the tattoo as a kind act and didn't charge for it or ask for a consent form to be signed. Best case scenario I feel there will be a severe indent and scar approximately 2"x3". This occurred 3 weeks ago and I went to the physician about 2 weeks later; they were surprised that the tattoo was layered and she put me on oral antibiotics. I have had one follow up with the physician since that time.
