We have been hearing a lot of discussion about R20 tattoo removal in recent weeks. Many have been asking what R20 tattoo removal is all about? Let us take a deeper look into the subject and separate the myth from the reality.
First, what is R20 tattoo removal?
R20 tattoo removal involves 4 treatment passes, each pass separated by
20-minute intervals. Conventional tattoo removal uses a single treatment pass.
R20 tattoo removal starting gaining a lot of attention when the Journal of Academic Dermatology published a study comparing a single Q-switched laser treatment with 4 treatment separated by 20 minutes. Their conclusion was that R20 tattoo removal was much more effective than the conventional method and that R20 tattoo removal was able to remove most tattoos.
So of course, from a tattoo removal standpoint this sounds really appealing. When you are devoted to removing your tattoos you want them off as quickly as possible. But don’t let your desperation of removing that tattoo taint the reality of getting the most effective treatment. This study is not proof that more treatment passes equal more effective removal.
The reality is that this R20 study has several limitations. It is important to educate yourself and do your research on any tattoo removal process. Let us give you some of the basics surrounding this study. The study was only done on 12 adults and 18 tattoos. Now it doesn’t take an expert to know that this is a really small sample size. In short, the reliability and the generalizability of its findings are influenced by this sample size.
Now this is not to say that the results from this study cannot be achieved, because they obviously had positive results. It just means that the results are not supported with the type of scientific proof usually desired in order to establish a cause and effect relationship between variables (in this case, use of R20 tattoo removal and the use of conventional single-treatment).
To get back on topic, in the study, the tattoos were divided into two groups, one group received a single treatment the other received R20 tattoo removal. In conclusion, when the two groups were compared, the group that received R20 tattoo removal showed better results.
We know what you’re thinking, why doesn’t every tattoo removal business use
R20 tattoo removal then? Regardless of the above reasons that were mentioned, effective tattoo removal requires more than simply passing over a tattoo with a laser. Safe and effective tattoo removal ? whether conventional or aggressive ‘demands the right technology and the right person administering the treatment.
If either element of the process falls short, the results can be disastrous. Permanent scarring and discoloration of the skin are only some of the consequences that can result from using the wrong laser or having the wrong person remove your tattoo.

Does the 4-n-1 process increase the risks of side effects?
All laser tattoo removal procedures come with risks. Whether it’s a single pass session or multiple passes, these risks include hyperpigmentation or scarring. While hyperpigmentation is most often temporary and short-lived, permanent hyperpigmentation is always possible. These risks are greatly increased when poorer quality lasers or inadequately trained individuals perform the procedures.
