I am a 45-year-old-man who had a tattoo removed from my forearm six months ago. The scar is very prominent, and I heard that dermabrasion is an effective procedure for tattoo scar removal. Would it take more than one appointment to remove the scar?
At The Naderi Center for Plastic Surgery and Dermatology, we are face specialists and work predominantly on the face. I am Board Certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. Some conditions such as hyperpigmentation affect the face, neck, back, chest, hands, and extremities and my skin care center staff do offer IPL photorejuvenation for such conditions. However, for dermabrasion or scar revision to the forearm, I would recommend you find a top Board Certified Plastic Surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
