New Laser Tattoo Removal Method in Las Vegas

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 includes 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.

I’m interested in the R20 laser tattoo removal method, however, I’m having a difficult time finding a doctor in Ohio (only ones who do the traditional method)…any suggestions?


Maybe the Cleveland Clinic?

Dear Doctor S,

Could you please tell ,me how much would it cost to remove 1″ tattoo in the hand?

Thank you.



$200 per treatment. Several or more treatments are usual. Please refer to our website pages on tattoo removal for more detailed information.

We also offer the R20 laser tattoo removal method, which costs $400 for a 3 treatment session in a single day. A single R20 session of 3 treatments may be enough to completely remove a small, dark tattoo. We offer complimentary consultations with one of our laser aestheticians. Thanks for inquiring.

Very exciting to see someone using the new r20 method. We offer tattoo removal in Billings, MT and are eager to give it a try. Can you tell me if you’ve adjusted your pricing, or how you will address the revenue issue?
Many thanks,
Michelle Qualls
Practice Manager


We charge our usual cost for 3 laser tattoo treatments minus 10%.

Recently, we ran a time sensitive special – Buy 2 and get the 3rd laser treatment FREE with respect to R20. So, the first R20 laser session will cost our usual price for 2 treatments.

Good luck.
