Waiting to Apply Tattoo Removal Cream on New Tattoo?

Hi. I got a tattoo on my wrist two days ago and I want to have it removed with tattoo cream. How long do I have to wait?

Tatto Removal Creams

Hi Snickers,

Unfortunately, whether you put the cream on now or in three weeks, the tattoo will not go away using this method. The only proven way to remove tattoos is with q-switched laser treatments. Starting early, as soon as the skin around the tattoo is healed will mean quicker results for you.
