Eclipse TR™ Tattoo Removal Pen No Match For PicoSure Laser

Eclipse TR™ Tattoo Removal Pen and Eclipse MicroPen can create some horrendous results. I recently had a patient show me the results of a single treatment she had performed by a physician using the Eclipse TR™ Micro-needling device and I was saddened to see that it left her horribly scarred. You can see in the photos that she already had a bad tattoo remnant left behind by a Q-switched laser which uses a decades-old technology. In her desperation to remove the remaining ink she let a doctor perform an Eclipse treatment on her and this was the result. The red dots are where he got her.

I just want to reiterate that there is NO known chemical that can be applied topically, or injected into a tattoo with a needling device, that can safely or effectively remove a tattoo. Currently, the safest, most effective method for tattoo removal is the PicoSure laser. It pulses in the trillionths of seconds – 100 times faster than any Q-switched laser. The lightning fast pulse generates a powerful PressureWave that shatters tattoo ink in to the smallest of particles which can then be easily removed by the body. If you have a tattoo, remnant or otherwise, and are tired of the lack of progress with your current method, or if you just want to safely remove your tattoo with the finest PicoSure laser available, I can be reached  by phone @ 512-479-9997  or just stop by my NEW location in Austin, TX:  Austin Medspa on W. 6th St.

    Is this safe for the lymphatic system? I’ve read that the heavy metals can overload the system since they get released fairly quickly.

      Hi Sara, Thanks for your question. The answer is yes it’s safe for the lymphatic system. Remember that during the tattooing process the excess ink is sent to the lymph nodes, usually without complication because the pigments are generally inert. If the ink itself was dangerous, it would do its damage during the tattooing process, when it’s abundant, and not throughout the removal, where it’s gradually cleared bit by bit. Occasionally, if the client has an ink allergy, it will flare up during removal but the reaction is usually weak and easily treated with an antihistamine. Thanks again for the great question! – Brendan Leigh, MS, RN

    I had three picosure treatments. Unfortunately one section of my tattoo became extremely dark after the third session. It’s been several months now and it has not lightening. It’s very depressing to pay thousands of dollars and have disappointing results

      Hi Sarah, Sorry to hear you’re depressed about your tattoo removal but take heart and don’t give up. Someday that tattoo will be gone. If you send me a pic to: I could probably give you some insight in to what’s happening with your removal. It could be the ink, settings, application of the energy, etc. Additionally, paying thousands for three treatments does seem excessive. Yes it’s an expensive laser but cosmetic procedures must also be reasonably priced and effective – clients deserve the best care and treatment available. Thanks, Brendan
