How to reduce swelling in hand?

9 months ago I cut my left hand with blade. And by mistake it made a deep cut. I have swelling in the place where I made cut. But i want to minimise the swelling so that i can make permanent tattoo over that. Can u please suggest me what steps should I take to minimise it?

Consult a plastic surgeon and get evaluated. You can opt for a procedure called dermabrasion.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
