Is it easier to remove a new tattoo or an old one?
This is a common question from our patients. What we have found is that if it is brand new (within a few weeks), it does seem to respond better to laser therapy than if it is older than that. Ideally, if you have a tattoo you dislike from the outset and you want it removed, don’t wait long to do so because you’re only prolonging the number of sessions. We have treated ones as new as a few hours old, and some that have been on a person for over fifty years.
