I have a fairly new tattoo, and I was wondering, do I need to wait about a year or 6 months to have it removed? Also in the meantime, can I use a tattoo removal cream, and then get the rest lasered off? My tattoo is not big at all and its on my inner right wrist, and its all black, which I've heard is the easiest to remove. I just got it like this week. I'm wondering if it's better to remove it as soon as possible, and around how much would I be looking to pay?

Tatoo Removed Time Length
Depending on how fast your skin heals, at least 2-8 weeks, your doctor will asses it at the time of your consult.
How soon can you start Tattoo removal?
You can start treatment as soon as the skin is healed. This in my experience is roughly 2 weeks after it was placed. I would shy away from creams as they will not achieve what a Q switched laser can with minimal skin change. You are correct that black is a good color to have as far as removal, blue and greens can be quite a struggle even witrh the right lasers.
