Laser Tattoo Removal Questions

Does the wavelength of the laser used to remove tattoos matter? Can the Picosure rid ink that is really deep?
Laser Tattoo Removal -4 answers
I am concerned that my small tattoo will not be gone. It was treated 8 times w/ a q-switch laser, and I'm now considering the Picosure. I have read that the Pico's wavelength is shorter, does that matter? I think the ink I have left is really deep.
