The r20 system is a laser approach and not the name of a laser.
The r20 system is a laser approach and not the name of a laser. There are those who believe that a second treatment – 20 minutes after the 1st – the r20 approach – leads to better Q-switched laser results of tattoos.
R20 is not a new laser. It is a method of administering multiple treatments on the same day spaced 20 minutes apart.
