Has Anyone Experienced the R20 Protocol for Tattoo Removal?

I was recently reading up on this process but would like some actual testimonials. I have undergone two sessions for removal, my skin has responded very well no scars or hyperpigmentation and 1 of the tattoos is almost completely gone. The other areas that are being treated have been a bit more resistant. I would like to know if the R20 will actually get it off for good. I just feel like this has been such a long drawn out process!

Some companies are doing well with this, but 90% of the removal process is based upon the immune system of the client. With that being said, the only clinical studies done utilizing the R20 was about 15 years ago, in the UK, on 12 people using a Q-switched Alexandrite laser and waiting 3 months between treatments. There is an increased possibility of short term tissue damage and almost always short term surface damage with this procedure.

I tried tattoo removal for a mural on my back. The process to get the tattoo took about three months, having it removed actually took a year. I have very sensitive skin and removal was painful but it was well worth it. My back looks darker than the rest of my skin, but its amazing how well the tattoo came off. **removed link to 3rd party site***

I'll be going in for my second r20 in a few weeks. Been 90 days already but work precludes getting the treatment any sooner. Spent just under $2000 usd on the first session. Tat is all black, ten y/old and big. First pass was most painful, couldn't take more than 10 seconds at a time, last (4th) pass was nearly painless, laser never stopped unless the tech needed to adjust. Tat is fading nicely, they say can fade up to 70% after first treatment, mine is def more than 50% gone. Wife says I wasted money, she doesn't believe it will ever be all gone. I'll make a proper post another time w pics.

Hi, i think that there is a lot of people interested in this method. It would be good that someone testing it post how its going and what we can expect from it! Thank you.

I am testing this method at the moment. All I can report at the moment is that it does cause more epidermal (surface) damage than the conventional method. This results in more blisters and loss of the upper layer of the skin surface. But it is still early days.
