Question

My nose piercing left a dark spot on my nose because the nickel from the nose piercing bleed into my skin like permanently tattooing my skin.

Can this dark spot be removed by doing a punch excision on the nose so that all of the area where the piercing will cut out from the nose?

Answer

I think your first port of call would be to discuss with a tattoo removal laser specialist whether it can be addressed in the same way.

Surgery could be used but will leave a small scar which may be avoided if laser treatment is suitable.
