Tattoo Removal

Laser Tattoo Removal

Over the course of a year, laser tattoo removal treatments increase 32%, reporting that it’s climbing the charts as a more in-demand treatment for removing unwanted tattoos. According to a patient survey, people are getting laser tattoo removal because of “the increased awareness of laser tattoo removal, economic pressure and the explosion in tattoo popularity.” Tattoo removal by laser is a very simple treatment that can be performed in under a lunch hour. Read on to discover how it works and more.

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Laser tattoo removal works by using a cosmetic laser predetermined for your skin type. The cosmetic laser directs energy and heat toward the tattoo’s pigments within your skin. This energy is absorbed by the tattoo, which causes it to break up into microscopic, fractionalized pieces that are flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system. This causes the unwanted tattoo to fade over the course of weeks all the way up until your next treatment.

Types of Lasers
Different types of Q-switched lasers are used for laser tattoo removal because they are poorly absorbed by competing chromophores and have the ability to penetrate deeper into layers of the skin. The ones used in laser tattoo removal are typically the Nd:YAG, Ruby, and Alexandrite. The Ruby laser is better for removing black and blue ink as well as unwanted melanin pigment. The Nd:YAG laser is used on darker skin types in order to avoid epidermal melanin pigmentation and scarring. The Alexandrite laser can also remove black and blue but has been said to be better at removing green ink as well.

Pre and Post Treatment Care
Before receiving laser tattoo removal you must have clean skin that’s been out of the sun recently. Sunburned skin cannot go through the process of laser tattoo removal. After your treatment, avoid hot showers, saunas, or jacuzzis as well as the sun. Intense heat upon the treated area can damage your skin and reduce the effectivity of the laser tattoo removal treatment.

Types of Tattoos
There are many different types of tattoos that can be treated with tattoo removal. Blue and green hues are more difficult to remove than black ink. Also, older tattoos are more easily removed than newer tattoos. Light, olive, and dark skin tones can receive tattoo removal, but there are different laser types for certain skin tones in order to prevent scarring or injury.

Laser Tattoo Removal Training for Tattoo Artists

No, tattoo artists aren’t seeking laser tattoo removal training in order to fix mistakes they’ve made on their clients. In fact, many tattoo artists may seek tattoo removal training because they already have a huge client base. Many people who are addicted to tattoos either get another tattoo to cover an old one up, or use laser tattoo removal to remove it before replacing the clear area of skin with another design. Either way, laser tattoo removal training is a great way for tattoo artists to earn more money with the pipeline they already have!

Before offering laser tattoo removal to your clients, you first have to go through laser tattoo removal training. We highly recommend National Laser Institute, the leader in the medical  aesthetics industry. They offer two courses that include laser tattoo removal: a comprehensive laser course which also covers in-demand services like laser hair removal, laser acne reduction, and laser wrinkle reduction as well as a just tattoo removal course where students will only receive tattoo removal training.

In both of these courses, students receive hands-on laser tattoo removal training on scheduled clients within a luxury medical spa in order to get the feel of how the treatment works. Students also learn from industry experts who teach didactic classroom portions of training.

With these tattoo removal courses, you’ll learn:

• Tissue interaction
• Wavelengths and laser selection
• Pre and post treatments
• Treatment contraindications
• Treatment plans
• Tattoo and skin types

National Laser Institute is recognized as the gold standard of education when it comes to medical aesthetics and has earned many outstanding reviews. If you’re considering higher quality education when seeking tattoo removal training, this is the place for you.

Aspiring Models Seek Out Laser Tattoo Removal Treatments

We all make mistakes when we’re young, but some mistakes are more permanent than others. Like getting a tattoo you’ll later on regret. Many men and women who want to enter the world of modeling are seeking out laser tattoo removal treatments. Not just models, though, but also many aspiring actors–and even Hollywood actors!

“I wanted them to be [removed] by the time I did The Fighter,” Mark Wahlberg told Daily Mail, “because putting make-up on and covering them up has always been a pain in the butt.”

Although it is possible to cover tattoos with makeup for modeling, acting, and professional jobs, many people don’t want to keep buying and applying this cover up–especially when it comes to their career. That’s why laser tattoo removal treatments have been steadily on the rise for the last few years. Hollywood celebrities, like Lea Michele and Kat Von D, have had laser tattoo removal treatments on their unwanted tattoos, feeling great for their fresh start.

Laser tattoo removal treatments work by using a cosmetic laser and directing that laser energy toward the tattoo’s pigment. The pigment of the tattoo absorbs the energy deep within the skin, then breaks the tattoo into fragments. Little by little, these fragments are flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system until the tattoo gradually fades. Typically people tend to need between 4-8 laser tattoo removal treatments to see flawless results.

National Laser Institute, the leader in the medical aesthetics industry, offers laser tattoo removal treatments at a fraction of the retail cost. Clients can receive laser tattoo removal in a luxury medical spa performed by trained laser technicians who will go over your skin care goals and concerns before performing your treatment. National Laser Institute has been around for a decade, has earned an A+ rating at the BBB, and has received many outstanding reviews.

Tattoo Removal Treatments Become Popular in the World of Hollywood

Yes, even Hollywood celebrities make mistakes. But instead of creams and gels, many are outwardly speaking about receiving laser tattoo removal treatments. For instance, Megan Fox already stated that she went through her first laser tattoo removal treatment to remove her Marilyn Monroe portrait off of her arm. Mark Wahlberg told the media that he took his kids to his laser tattoo removal session “so they see how painful it is and what I have to go through.” Even Mark Anthony got JLo’s name removed by laser tattoo removal before their divorce. Because of the growing popularity of laser tattoo removal, many people have sought it out as a better way of ridding their regretted ink. Laser tattoo removal works by emitting laser energy onto the tattoo’s pigment within the skin. That energy is absorbed by the tattoo’s pigment, which allows it to breath into fragments. Then the ink is flushed out by the body’s lymphatic system. It can be uncomfortable without numbing cream, but the entire process lasts only a few minutes. Most people need between 4-8 treatments on average. Because clients need more than one session, this is a great skill set to have if you’ve been wanting to build your area of expertise. Both medical professionals and health and beauty experts can receive laser tattoo removal training.* At National Laser Institute, they offer a customized tattoo removal course as well as a comprehensive laser course, which covers laser tattoo removal. Both of these courses give attendees hands-on training with laser technology, allowing them to practice with scheduled clients within a luxury medical spa. Attendees will also learn about client criteria, skin types, cosmetic laser functions, and much more. National Laser Institute is the leader in the medical aesthetics industry and is recognized as gold standard education. Many people have chosen NLI as their tattoo removal training school in the past and have moved on to perform treatments on their own clientele. National Laser Institute has earned an A+ rating at the BBB as well as many starred reviews.

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.
