- Course Description
Our Tattoo Removal prepares you on how to properly assess a tattoo and deliver accurate information and obtainable results to the patient. Client consultation is imperative. This service is in high demand, however, the practitioner MUST be skilled in patient interaction while helping their client reach their desired outcome.
TLATA takes pride in our in-depth curriculum and advanced training techniques. We feel it is crucial for the practitioner to have a thorough understanding of the technology being used. We won’t just show you how to use the machine — we will also teach you the mechanics behind the technology. Unlike most training facilities, we encourage our students to learn machine settings and how to properly clean and maintain the equipment.
What Devices Will I Train On?
Different lasers (wavelengths) are attracted and absorbed into certain colors. The technology behind Tattoo Removal is changing rapidly, however, there is not one wavelength that treats every color at 100% success.
1064nm Nd: YAG
This wavelength of laser light is best suited for dark blue or black ink. It also moderately treats light blue and green ink pigments. This laser is the safest wavelength to use on all skin colors and poses the least risk for tissue damage.
This wavelength of laser light is best suited for red and orange tattoo ink pigments.
1 Day, 8-Hours 10am-6pm
In this course we study how light is absorbed into the tattoos pigmentation, resulting in a gradual removal of the ink. During your training, we will teach you about consulting with your client, delivering realistic expectations, and proper pre- and post-care. Our main focus is the actual lasing of diverse locations and colors of tattoos; hands-on training is imperative to giving proper treatment. This is an intensive and advanced laser course that is not for the faint of heart.

This was due to the time and expense involved in applying for a license, which in some cases includes completing required education and taking an examination. See Section 51.4012 and Chapter 53, Subchapter D, of the Occupations Code, which allow a person to request a criminal history evaluation letter from the Department, prior to actually applying for a license…
