R20 Laser Tattoo Removal

September 11, 2013 |  by

It’s always the same reasons… I was too young, I didn’t put much thought into it, I got it on holiday, I thought we were in love… and all the while you normally have some one in the background saying you will regret it!!! Occasionally they are right. Nowadays Laser tattoo removal is becoming more and more common among people of all ages, with some interesting stories behind each one!

If it’s to get it removed or even faded for a cover up (please seriously think about this time!!!) then this is how it all starts. Firstly you would need a consultation so you can go through the do and dont’s. Once you are happy to go ahead get your self booked in. Be prepared the treatments are uncomfortable but not unbearable.

The way it works is the laser penetrates the tattoo ink and shatters it into small fragments which then allow our bodies to break it down… Very cool stuff! The after effects are pretty much like having a tattoo, it will be red, a little sore, and it can scab and also itch.

Normally you would have one treatment every 6 weeks which means it can take up to 2 years to get the results you want, which is not ideal! However the latest machines on the market are now presenting the R20 method and brand new technique that allows you to have up to 4 treatments in one day… Exciting huh!? After your first pass you will have to wait for around 20 minutes to allow the skin to calm and settle then it’s time for another round. The results are fantastic and will get you to your desired end point a lot quicker!

The R20 method is available at Epsom Skin Clinics, so get on-line, have a look and get yourself booked in… Have no regrets!
