Your video shows a refrigerant label R410a.

If the gas has leaked then yes it will need repair and recharge.

Check cost before agreeing to work.

No refrigerant circuit, be that AC/Portable AC/Refrigerator/Whatever, needs "recharging".
The only time gas has to be added is if the original gas has leaked out.
(And, no... No system should leak)
Refrigerant does not "go old", "loose performance" or any such thing.
If the system looses performance because of the gas then it is because the gas leaked out.

Now when we got that out of the way...
Any and all refrigerant circuits can be recharged by an engineer that knows what (s)he is doing, otherwise they wouldn't be able to charge them at the factory.
