Nose rings, tattoos, are you really sure you want to create more scar tissue?

One of the blockages to healing is scar tissue.  Hard to believe, but a simple mole removal on your head could cause a problem in your shoulder! In my clinic, we always test scars to see if they are blocking the body’s ability to heal.  If they are, we use a special oil and laser light to mitigate the effects of scars which include any extraneous metals that are embedded in the tissue, e.g., nose rings, eyebrow rings, and yes, tattoos.  I know a lot of people have tattoos and don’t want to hear how mutilating the body can have dire consequences.
