Hi do you offer Surgical excision of tattoo’s
we do not surgically excise tattoos, however we do remove tattoos via laser
treatments. We have several lasers at VCI, so that we may tailor the laser
specifically tattoo colour(s) and your skin type.
10-20 treatments are often required for a professional tattoo, and less for an amateur
Surgical excision of tattoos are really only suitable for smaller tattoos in areas that are not prone to excessive scarring. We can recommend a suitable plastic surgeon should you wish to do this though.
