Tattoo Removal School

The cosmetic laser industry is so highly in-demand by clients wanting to improve their skin care concerns with treatments that include laser tattoo removal. Unlike creams and gels, laser tattoo removal is able to remove unwanted tattoos by using a different method. The laser targets the pigment, which is then broken up and flushed out of the body through the lymphatic system. Within a couple of treatments recommended by a laser technician, the tattoo is diminished dramatically.

Many people interested in tattoo removal school have a lot of questions about their future and their career, which is definitely understandable. That’s why we’re here to help answer some of the most common FAQs as seen below.

How long do I have to go to school for?

Not very long, actually. National Laser Institute offers a 3-day tattoo removal course, or a 2-week comprehensive laser course that covers tattoo removal and a series of other in-demand laser treatments.

What can I expect from my education?

With National Laser Institute’s tattoo removal training course, attendees can expect to learn the logistics of cosmetic lasers, how to use and fire them, how to treat different skin types and tattoo types, and receive hands-on training with scheduled clients in order to gain real world exposure to lasers.

When can I start treating my own clients?

We recommend checking with your state’s regulations or speaking with an admission’s advisor at National Laser Institute, but once you meet your required hours you’re free to start treating your own clients!

What’s a typical tattoo removal technician salary?

As someone who’s been in the medical aesthetics industry for a decade, we tend to see that laser technician salaries range from $15-$25 an hour with a possible 3-20% commission rate. However, we have also seen salaries positions as well as strictly commission positions as well. The hourly + commission is the most common.

We recommend attending National Laser Institute if you’re interested in tattoo removal school. They combine hands-on with classroom training within a small class size for a more personal teaching experience. They have been in the medical aesthetics industry for years and in that time have earned an number of excellent reviews as well as an A+ rating at the BBB.

Tattoo Removal Technician Salary

Laser tattoo removal has become a more highly popularized way to get rid of unwanted tattoos, especially since big celebrities, like Miley Cyrus, have been spotted coming out of treatment clinics. If you’ve been thinking about receiving laser training for tattoo removal but aren’t quite sure if you can financially make the change, consider checking into tattoo removal technician salaries. As someone who’s been in the medical aesthetics and cosmetic laser industry for a while, I can break it down pretty easily.

First of all, many laser technicians either rent their own laser equipment or work for a clinic that already provides this equipment. This is because cosmetic laser equipment is always advancing and changing for the better. It also is very, very expensive, and you don’t want to be in debt because you bought a machine a year ago now it’s time to upgrade or else lose clients to someone offering a better and more effective machine.

Secondly, many laser tattoo removal technicians charge anywhere between $100-$1000 for a single, high quality treatment. Also, one laser tattoo removal treatment is not enough to make a tattoo disappear in one session. Clients typically need between 4-12 sessions to completely fade a tattoo.

So let’s say you run your own tattoo removal shop and treat 5 clients per day. If you charge clients $250 per treatment, that’s $1,250 cash you made in just one day. Let’s say you treat 5 clients a day for 5 days. That’s $6,250 in your pocket at the end of the week!

Are people willing to pay good money to remove their tattoos with a cosmetic laser? Absolutely. Laser tattoo removal penetrates deep into the tattoo’s pigment in order to break it up into fragments and flush it out through the body’s lymphatic system. It’s a unique type of treatment that you can’t find with over the counter remedies.

National Laser Institute offers hands-on tattoo removal training for clients interested in adding tattoo removal to their skill set. They are the leader in the medical aesthetic industry and are recognized as gold standard education. Students are trained in their luxury medical spa by experts in the field of laser for the best possible medical aesthetics education.

Laser Tattoo Removal FAQ

Laser tattoo removal isn’t an uncommon process nowadays. Many clients like this type of tattoo removal treatment because it’s an effective, safe way to eliminate unwanted tattoos. However, because the details of this type of treatment can be a little hazy, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions when it comes to laser tattoo removal treatments.

Does laser tattoo removal hurt?

This depends. Some medical spas offer numbing cream to prevent clients who are more sensitive to pain. However, some people who’ve experienced laser tattoo removal without numbing cream state that the treatment is uncomfortable, but bearable. It’s not the most relaxing cosmetic treatment, but the intensity of the laser has the ability to get the job complete.

How long does it take?

The treatment process is fairly short compared to other cosmetic laser treatments. Depending on the size of the tattoo, laser tattoo removal can take anywhere between 5-20 minutes.

How long will it take to completely disappear?

Again, this also depends. Clients who have a dark or black tattoo tend to find that cosmetic laser treatments remove their tattoo in only a few months. However, some colors, like aquas and greens, are little tougher to remove and can take longer. A good estimate is anywhere between 4-10 months, but consulting with your laser technician will give you a better estimate on your specific tattoo treatment plan.

Does laser tattoo removal work for all skin types?

It does because there are different types of lasers for different skin types. This prevents clients from getting blistered or burned from cosmetic lasers that are not appropriate for their skin.

How much is laser tattoo removal?

Every medical spa or doctor’s office will depend, but at National Laser Institute, a leading medical spa, laser tattoo removal starts at just $50!

National Laser Institute is the leader in the medical aesthetics industry and is committed to finding each and every client a treatment plan dedicated to providing results based on their skincare goals and desires.

Tattoo Removal Courses

Laser tattoo removal has become a popular option for those looking to remove tattoos quicker and more effectively than some of the creams that are advertised. This is because the cosmetic laser is able to penetrate deeply into the dermis layers of the skin, breaking the tattoo’s pigments into fragments which are flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system.

For those looking for specific tattoo removal training, National Laser Institute offers a specific tattoo removal course. Attendees can learn about the logistics of how lasers work, how to treat different colors of tattoos and skin tones, and hands-on clinical training with scheduled clients.

If you’re looking for a more general cosmetic laser course with many in-demand treatments added, National Laser Institute also offers a comprehensive laser course. This course trains students on treatments such as laser hair removal, laser acne reduction, IPL photofacials, laser wrinkle reduction, and many more. Students will also receive hands-on training with clients in a luxury medical spa setting.

National Laser Institute also offers courses for medical professionals looking to earn CM/CME credits, too. As the leader in the medical aesthetics industry, they have earned an A+ rating at the BBB as well as a number of outstanding reviews. They train hundreds of students every month between their Dallas and Arizona location.

Did you know?

There is less probability for infection with Laser Liposuction because a smaller incision is required for the procedure. Also blood loss, a common complication with traditional liposuction, is minimal since the procedure is more accurate at targeting fat, and, therefore, does less damage to surrounding blood vessels. Any blood that does leak from a damaged vessel will evaporate from the heat of the laser.
