Laser for Tattoo Removal
I would absolutely recommend using a laser to try and remove the tattoo. I prefer the Q-Switch Alexandrite laser, which has great success in 3-5 sessions on black ink. We typically apply a numbing cream and possibly a numbing injection, and the procedure is quick and comfortable. I wouldn't recommend an excision in that area, as it is filled with vasculature and the skin isn't particularly thick or lax, meaning healing could be problematic. Hope this helps. Best of luck!
