Tattoo removal in one meeting with the new R20 method
A novel, faster / quicker laser tattoo removal method has recently been described and published in the February, 2012 issue of the prestigious Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology (JAAD).
This new protocol, called the R20 method by it's authors is truely innovative. Q-switched lasers continue to be the gold standard in scarless tattoo removal. Although scarless tattoo removal has been available since the early 1990's and advancements in q-switched lasers have created stronger, faster lasers with additional wavelengths for more effective treatment of a greater variety of colors, treatment protocols have not changed much since this time.
Traditional laser tattoo removal requires mutliple treatments at 6-10 week intervals until satisfactory clearance is achieved. The R20 method invcludes 3 or 4 treatments 20 minutes apart on the same day. After 3 months, clearance was significantly better than with one treatment. Some patients achieved near complete to satisfactory clearance with one session. No patients had any adverse side effects, such as scarring. Otherwise, healing was similar to the traditional interval treatment protocol. Repeat treatments maybe repeated in 3 months with the R20 method, if needed.

Tattoo Removal by Q-Switched NdYag- Laser "Revlite"
Medical laser treatment serves to remove many kinds of tattoos, permanent make-up and so-called pigmentation by foreign particles interspersed in consequence of accidents.
With "Revlite" made by ConBio (Cynosure), we use the goldstandard technical equipment for tattoo removal.
Its excellent technical performance characteristics of four different wave lengths (light colors) pooled in one laser allow for the improved removal also of multicolored tattoos (even including light-blue and green) in less treatment sessions.
However, even if this fast high-performance four-color-laser is being deployed, it usually takes a series of treatments at intervals of eight or more weeks in order to achieve complete removal of all pigments.
In order to mutually define the ideal treatment for your specific tattoo removal, profound consultation is indispensable. Please call us to make an appointment for a meeting free from any obligations on your side (044 387 99 20).
