I have a black scar on my nose from an old piercing that has been gone for about 4 years. I was wondering what would be the best options to get this removed?
We have treated this problem quite a few times at our clinic using the Medlite or Revlite laser. This helps to break down the pigmentation from the piercing in the skin. Usually it takes a few sessions to remove it completely.
It is akin to how we remove tattoos using laser.
