R20 Tattoo Removal
A fast and effective treatment for tattoo removal using the new R20 technique, we can remove your unwanted tattoos in just a few visits to the clinic. Regular treatments are normally spaced up to 6 weeks apart but with R20 technology, we can treat your unwanted tattoo up to four times faster than normal.
How does it work?
Traditional methods of laser tattoo removal use a one pass technique during one visit to the clinic however with the R20 technique, 4 treatments of laser tattoo removal can be done on the same day, with one session every 20 minutes. The laser is used to break up the large ink particles of the tattoo and small whitish bubbles appear immediately which the laser cannot penetrate through so you have to wait 20 minutes until they disappear. This allows the ink to be picked up by your immune system and filtered out through the body’s normal waste removal processes.
What results can I expect?
Complete removal is not always possible and some clients will be left with slight “ghosting”. A stubborn or colourful tattoo can take as long as 1 year plus.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required will vary greatly dependent on the size and type of tattoo but with the new technique, you will be able to remove your tattoo within a much smaller period of time. You can have R20 laser tattoo removal in one visit to the clinic which would have normally taken 24 weeks using existing methods and return after 8 weeks for another treatment. A personal plan will be discussed in your consultation.
This treatment requires a patch test to be performed 24hours before the treatment. This is an essential part of our duty of care to protect you and your skin.
