Laser tattoo removal works by using specific lasers to break up the pigment of tattoos into tiny fragments. These small fragments are then flushed out of the body naturally. Over a series of treatments, most of the ink fragments are removed and the tattoo is effectively gone. However, using traditional tattoo removal methods, this process takes an average of six to ten visits, with some people needing up to twenty treatments!
What is the R20 method of tattoo removal?
The R20 method of tattoo removal is an exciting development in tattoo removal technique.

The R20 method consists of multiple treatments (up to four) being performed during a single visit. This allows the treatment series to be completed much faster than traditional tattoo removal.
