Are you doing dermabrasion or excision for tattoos.

Asked on 17 August 2011


Can you tell me if you do dermabrasion or excision for tattoos. I do not want laser?


I have never carried out dermabrasion for tattoo removal. Direct excision is an option, primarily when related to the relatively small tattoos. It does however leave visible scars, and this should be carefully weighed against alternative treatments.
