Does the tattoo need to be of a certain age before it can be removed with the Picoway laser?

Age of tattoo
It is best to wait a few months to remove a tattoo. When it is new it does not go away as readily or as well. An older tattoo goes away better than a new tattoo. If it is just placed, you should allow it to heal and this can take several weeks. We usually recommend waiting around two months post placement to remove the tattoo
