What is R20?

R20 is a treatment technique where multiple laser sessions are administered at one appointment, usually 20 minutes apart. R20 is an effective way to maximize laser treatments because 50-70% more ink can be removed than in a single treatment.

The ideal candidate for R20 is a someone who wants a faster removal and has a heavily inked or dark tattoo. Usually, any tattoo on the first treatment would benefit from R20. However, as the tattoo fades and there is less ink, single treatments are more effective.

Each treatment is spaced 20 minutes apart to allow any gasses that have formed under the skin to dissipate. Gas formation, which is the result of the laser energy transfer, turns that tattoo temporarily white. The white color deflects the laser.

Single session laser tattoo treatments are usually spaced at 4 - 8 week intervals to allow the body time to clear the destroyed ink. R20 treatments are sometimes spaced at 8 - 12 week intervals due to the greater amount of destroyed ink to be removed.

R20 can not only be a faster method of achieving your tattoo removal goals, it can also be more economical. The first laser treatment is priced like a single session and the subsequent treatments are 50% less. For example, if a single treatment is $150, R20 with two treatments would be $225.

    1. I have gone through a laser tattoo removal (in Montreal and California) and I would absolutely NOT recommend anyone to do it…

      If you go through the usual laser removal methods. Which I do not recommend, not only that it will leave marks on your skin, so in reality, the tattoo will still be kind of visible if you know where to look. It is a very long process. And to be honest, very costly.

      I had a hook up from a friend, and I have only paid 4000$ for 12 sessions. Which is a whole lot of money, but if I had to pay the full price, I would spend at least 6500$.

      This also depends on where do you live, but in general, it is costly. And it took ages to finish, they have recommended me at max one session per month. So I have ended up getting rid of this tattoo for more than a year and a half, and to be honest, the tattoo was quite small. It was significant as a can of coke. If I had a more massive tattoo, it would take a longer time and more session, which means more $$$$.

      Laserless tattoo removal is where it's at.

      Unfortunately, at the time of my tattoo removal, I did not know this, I know about this only thanks to my brother, which bought this program last year.

      This has a few pros and few cons. It works, and he was able to do it himself. Well, you have to do it yourself or ask someone to do it for you.

      It is a long process, but I believe he has spent just a couple bucks on this ebook. It is definitely way cheaper than any tattoo removal cream I have bought.

      And how long it will take to remove the tattoo with this method varies from person to person, their age and their skin. My brother got rid of his tattoo with in four months, I believe, and his tattoo was at least twice as big mine was.

      I am not sure, if he were supposed to do something to treat it every day, I would have to call him about it, but hey it works and out of all of these options it is the cheapest one and yes you might spend more time on this than on laser removal, but your tattoo will be gone sooner than if you would go with the laser removal option.

      To be honest, I do not know that many things about this, but I just did a quick google search and here is a great review of it:

      To my knowledge, this is the only 100% natural option out here in 2019 to get rid of your tattoos.

      I really hope this helps someone out there.

      Good luck!
