Over 45 million people in the United States have tattoos. Of those, nearly 20% would like to have a tattoo removed. That means about 8 million people are looking for a safe, affordable and effective solution for unwanted tattoos. Eclipse MicroPen TR is the culmination of many years of research that has led to the perfect combination of technology and technique.
Similar to the way a tattoo is applied, MicroPen TR utilizes very fine micro-needles to create precise wounds in the tattooed tissue while simultaneously introducing a proprietary solution to the treatment site. This proprietary solution is designed to ink while causing minimal inflammation to the surrounding tissue. In about two to three weeks after the healing process begins, the ink is lifted out from the epidermis along with a small scab. New skin with natural pigment replaces the old skin and foreign ink.
Our principal developers have refined the technology to deliver a precise amount of solution over an exact amount of time. By treating only a fraction of the skin in each session, the protocol ensures that the patient gets rid of the in while minimizing the risk of side effects.
