Undesirable Scars and Tattoos


Scars are marks left on the skin as a result of the body’s natural healing process after an injury or surgery, whereas tattoos may be the remnants of a past memory or action you would like to remove.

If you’ve lived any sort of an active life, chances are better than good that you have some of the signs to prove it, from typical scars to eye-catching tattoos. Albuquerque is home to plenty of both.

It’s also home to people who might regret such marks found on their skin, or who find them distracting, frustrating, or generally unpleasant to look at. Fortunately, Western Dermatology Consultants offers ways to help erase the past, including microdermabrasionchemical peels, and lasers to reduce the appearance of scars, as well as lasers to eliminate tattoos.

Do you have undesirable scars or a tattoo you no longer want to wear on your skin? Albuquerque residents can learn more about how to get a fresh, clean start with help from Western Dermatology Consultants. Call 505-855-9267 or contact us online.

More Details on Unwanted Scars and Tattoos

Every scar is different, so there’s no way for the team at Western Dermatology to know how best to treat a particular scar without seeing if first. Some scars are raised, and some are depressed. Some are smooth and shiny, and some are rough.

It’s the same with tattoos, which come in a variety of designs and a rainbow of colors—and can be found just about anywhere on the human body an artist can fit a needle.

A consultation will be necessary for a member of our skin team to assess the size, shape, and location of the mark or ink to be treated.

Once an assessment is done, you will be able to get a better idea of the work involved in clearing your scars or tattoo, as well as the estimated number of sessions required, the time it will take, the cost, and other details particular to your unique situation.

It’s important to remember that while a scar from an injury, acne, or even surgery may seem like it will be around forever, it doesn’t have to be. And while people will warn you that a tattoo is permanent, we can improve the appearance of your tattoo so it is significantly less noticeable. Take control of your skin, and take control of your past by working with our team for all of your dermatological needs.
