As a laser technician, there are many ways that you can help your clients look better and improve their skin. Sometimes, your patients need more than a treatment to address their future skin health; they need one that can erase their past. That’s where laser tattoo removal comes in. At Texas Laser and Aesthetics in Austin, TX, we want to help you add another skill to your repertoire, which is why we offer tattoo removal training.
Laser tattoo removal has become increasingly popular in recent years because it’s effective. Not only does it deliver results, but it gives patients a way to erase a tattoo that they may have once loved but now regret, for whatever reason. This treatment is more than just laser treatment. It can help your patients be free of a tattoo that may bring about some unpleasant emotions or memories or just remind them of what may not have been their greatest moment.
How Do You Get Certified for Laser Tattoo Removal?
If you want to add laser tattoo removal to your list skills so that you can improve the quality of your patients’ lives by helping them remove their tattoos permanently, we can help you do just that. At Texas Laser and Aesthetics, we offer a tattoo removal training course that will give you everything you need to get certified to perform this treatment. You can complete most of this course from the comfort of your home and then finish with in-depth, hands-on training.
Texas Laser & Aesthetics Training Academy: Laser Tattoo Removal Certification

Using the Devices
During this course, you’ll have the opportunity to get some hands-on training with some of the most advanced technology in this industry. You’ll practice on these devices so that you can become familiar with how they work and how effective they are on certain colors. You’ll also learn different techniques to use during treatment to get optimal results, regardless of what kind of tattoo you’re removing.
Our course will prepare you to effectively remove everything from a small tattoo to a full sleeve if necessary. Hands-on experience will give you the confidence you need not only to begin a new career but to perform each and every treatment that’s presented to you.
Learning Different Wavelengths
During this course, you will learn about different wavelengths emitted by lasers and the different colors they are attracted to, and how they are absorbed into the skin with those colors. Not every laser can effectively remove every color in a tattoo. You’ll learn which lasers work best with certain colors so that you can achieve optimal results in every treatment you perform.
1064nm Nd: YAG
1064nm Nd: YAG is a wavelength of laser light the works best on dark ink, like navy blues and blacks. It also produces moderate results on light blue and green pigments. This laser is well-known in the industry for its ability to safely treat all skin colors without resulting in significant tissue damage.
The 532nm KTP wavelength of laser light works best on red and orange pigments in tattoos.
