Have you started thinking about what your 2019 New Year’s resolutions might be?
If you’re like most folks I speak with, your goals might fall into one of these buckets:
- Try to earn more money.
- Fix a mistake you made in the previous year.
- Try to shed some unwanted pounds.
Well, today is your lucky day…
You see, I’m about to introduce you to a company that could help you accomplish all of these New Year’s resolutions at the same time.
Let me explain…
A “Forever Mistake”
Some mistakes are temporary, while others have a more lasting impact. My mother used to call the latter a “forever mistake.”
I made my first “forever mistake” when I was 17-years-old…
That summer, I got it into my head that I had to have a tattoo. It was all I could think about.
As I saved up money for it, I gradually finalized exactly which tattoo to get, and exactly where to put it.
When the day finally came, I told my mother what I was about to do.
“It’s your body,” she said. “You can do what you want. But you’ll probably end up regretting it. And you can’t take it back. If this is a mistake, it’s a forever mistake.”
Her words were reasonable. But I was 17 — so I went ahead and got the tattoo.
And just as my mother had predicted, just a few years later, I regretted the “art” that was now permanently marking my skin.
A Painful Solution
Unfortunately, she was also right about my tattoo being a “forever mistake.” I couldn’t simply wish it away.
As I came to learn, the only way to get a tattoo removed is through ten to fifteen painful laser treatments over the course of two or more years.
These lasers shoot ultra-hot light onto your skin and cause the pigment of the tattoo to break up and disperse. The process can be more traumatizing and painful than the initial tattoo. As one person put it, “It’s like volunteering to give yourself a 2nd degree burn.”
On top of that, it could cost several thousand dollars — which is several times more than I had spent on my tattoo in the first place.
The “Soliton” Solution
But recently, a new solution has become available — a tattoo-removal solution that’s far less expensive, and far less painful.
And as I mentioned earlier, not only could it help you fix past mistakes…
But it could also help you shed some pounds and add some dollars to your bank account!
This solution is being pioneered by a technology start-up called Soliton.
Essentially, Soliton has built a Rapid Acoustic Pulse (RAP) device, where instead of using lasers to remove tattoos, it uses soundwaves.
Thanks to its technology, tattoos can be removed quickly and inexpensively with just a few visits to the doctor.
Fixing Mistakes is a Big Business
This is a big opportunity.
According to the Soliton, in the U.S. alone, approximately 70 million people have at least one tattoo.
And meanwhile, an independent study conducted by iResearch showed that 63% of those people are considering tattoo removal or modification.
That’s a potential market of 44 million people!
Today, just 100,000 tattoo removal treatments are conducted each year. So market demand is being underserved by a wide margin.
Soliton’s solution could potentially capture a large portion of this market, turning it into a multi-billion-dollar company in the process.
But here’s the thing:
Soliton’s revolutionary device could also cater to a number of other markets as well…
The Sound of Weight Loss
During Soliton’s clinical trials, it found that soundwaves from its device could effectively break up tattoo ink…
But it also found that its device could destroy cellulite and body fat, too.
So in addition to targeting the tattoo-removal market, it’s planning to target the even larger (and more lucrative) weight-loss market as well:
To put this in perspective, the market for tattoo removals is expected to be worth roughly $4 billion — but the weight-loss market is already worth a staggering $68.2 billion!
And this is where Soliton becomes the perfect New Year’s investment…
How Soliton Could Make You Money
You see, this tiny start-up is currently raising money from investors like you…
In other words, you now have the chance to claim a stake in its innovative technology.
But keep in mind, this investment comes with certain risks. For example:
- The device has yet to receive FDA approval. While it’s easier to get a device approved than a drug, it’s still a significant hurdle.
- Unlike a software or Internet company, Soliton will require a great deal of capital to build its business — if it fails to raise that capital in the future, it could have a difficult time staying in business…
- The minimum investment for Soliton is $1,000 — not an insignificant sum.
