R20 Tattoo Removal Laser

Before and after 3 sessions images of a patient who successfully underwent R20 Treatment for tattoo removal on the hand.

As anyone who has looked into laser tattoo removal options knows, it can be a lengthy and frustrating process. While the most effective method of removing unwanted body art is with laser tattoo removal, it can still require multiple office visits and sometimes with mixed results. Some tattoo inks can even require up to ten removal treatments to remove. There is no way of knowing how long the process will take for your specific type of ink, as tattoo artists use many different types of materials in their ink and some are harder to remove than others. This can be an unwelcome surprise for many people trying to get rid of their tattoos in an expeditious time frame.

The Fastest Removal Treatment

Thankfully there is now a faster removal option that will let you say goodbye to the ghosts of spring break and old flames in just one or two in-office treatments. Past removal treatments could take up to two years to fully clear a tattoo – but our dermatology providers can effectively accomplish almost complete tattoo removal in only one session. Sound impossible? It’s not. Here’s how it works: Rather than using only a single pass of the Q-switched laser to remove tattoos, Schweiger Dermatology Group’s “R20” method of completing four treatments in 20-minute intervals during one office visit allows the laser to reach greater depths. In clinical studies, one treatment was sufficient to nearly clear a tattoo of black ink. The passes of the laser are done with 20-minute breaks in between to allow for the tiny bubbles on the surface of the tattoo to disappear. This allows for the laser to target the pigment even right after the treatment, as opposed to coming in for another office visit. Four passes in total are completed in one visit with the R20 Technique, which is often times enough to completely clear an unwanted tattoo in just one visit.
