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.
