How to Prepare for New Look Laser College

How to Prepare for New Look Laser College (Plus More Answers During FREE Webinar!)

New Look Laser College (NLLC) students ask us all the time: “How do I prepare for this course? What do I bring? What can I wear? Do I have to have tattoos? Will there be breakfast tacos?” and more.  Keep reading for answers to your training preparation questions, and join us September 20th, 2019 for an exclusive webinar answering all of your laser tattoo removal training FAQs! (And yes, there will be breakfast tacos the morning of the course.)

First things first: Registering for a New Look Laser College course is easier than placing an Amazon order.  After you have decided you are ready to learn about tattoo removal, find the course location and date most convenient for you. Add the appropriate course to your shopping cart and complete your purchase like you normally would for any other online order.

For those interested in planning further ahead AND saving money in the process, we highly recommend taking advantage of our Early Bird Registration Discounts.  To save $300 on the cost of your desired course, be sure to register at least 3 months prior to the course date. For example, if the course you’re interested in attending is scheduled for February 7-8, 2020, you would need to register before December 7, 2019 to save $300. After the Early Bird period has passed, the course will return to normal pricing.

If you are a current Astanza Laser client and you’re interested in using training credits from your VIP plan, contact Justin at

Luckily, students can pack light for New Look Laser College courses. Most of the supplies needed for the course will be provided by your training instructors, and students are welcomed to bring anything extra they’d like to have. A few things we recommend bringing include something to take notes in, a phone charger, and business cards.

Each student will receive writing supplies and a binder detailing the entire lecture / curriculum for the weekend that also has space to take notes.  NLLC provides all the necessary materials and equipment used for performing laser tattoo removal treatments, consultations, and aftercare. Breakfast, lunch, coffee, and other beverages are provided both days of the course.

Something comfortable! We recommend that students wear comfortable shoes because they’ll be on their feet for a considerable period of time during hands-on laser training.  We are a-okay as long as students are comfortable and their clothing doesn’t get in their way during hands-on practice. Generally, avoid uncomfortable shoes, bulky jewelry, flowy sleeves and anything else that might hinder your performance with the laser.

Is this course right for me? Answering FAQs during exclusive webinar

Is This Course Right For Me? Tattoo Removal Training Questions Answered During Informative Webinar!

At New Look Laser College, we get the opportunity to train folks with different professional backgrounds and levels of laser experience. We’re often asked: “Is this course right for me?” because potential students are unsure of what prerequisites (if any) we require and whether or not their current profession qualifies them for attending training. Keep reading for your answer, and join us for an exclusive webinar where we’ll answer your laser training FAQs!  

There are no required prerequisites for attending one of New Look Laser College’s tattoo removal training courses. While we approach laser tattoo removal as a medical procedure (for the sake of patient safety, comfort, and adherence to proper techniques and protocols by practitioners), students do not need a medical background or prior experience with aesthetic lasers to become certified through this course.

Students learn all the relevant and necessary information for performing safe and effective laser tattoo removal during our two-day courses. During New Look Laser College, we train students on laser safety, physics, consultations, side effects, aftercare, marketing/operating their tattoo removal business, and more. We also place a special emphasis on hands-on laser training with real tattoo removal patients, ensuring each student gets plenty of practice with the lasers throughout the weekend.

New Look Laser College is open to individuals of any professional background, regardless of their laser or medical background. At any given course, it’s common to have tattoo artists, med spa technicians, doctors, plastic surgeons, and first-time laser users/entrepreneurs training together.

We love having such a wide variety of friendly faces at each of our courses because it enriches our students’ experience!  Medical professionals can dive deeper into laser physics, and side effects, and tattoo artists/shop owners share incredibly helpful first-hand insights into the artwork and business aspects of laser tattoo removal.  These different perspectives, combined with instruction from our team of field experts, allows for engaging discussion and more shared knowledge, further enhancing every student’s learning experience!

Although we accept students of any professional background into our training program to earn their certification in laser tattoo removal, it’s essential to know your own state’s rules and regulations surrounding the procedure before attending a training course.  Some states may only require that you have proof of certification and a functional laser, while others may require that you have a medical director listed on staff or that laser tattoo removal practitioners must be registered nurses. Click here to research your state’s rules and regulations regarding laser tattoo removal.

Get Your Questions Answered During Our Upcoming Webinar!
If you have more burning questions about New Look Laser College, be sure to join us for this exciting and informative webinar! During this livestream, we’ll answer our most popular FAQs surrounding our training course and help you determine if this course is right for you or your team.  This exclusive webinar will stream on September 20th, 2019 at 2:00 PM CST and is free to view.

NTRD advocates for all people who have considered removing a tattoo and encourages them to learn more about their options, the technology, and the procedure.

Lasers You'll Train with during New Look Laser College

What Tattoo Removal Devices Will I Train with at New Look Laser College?

Before attending a tattoo removal training course, students are usually curious about the lasers they’ll train with.  At New Look Laser College, we typically train students how to use the Astanza Duality and Astanza Trinity, but we’re excited to welcome another laser into the mix soon!

We know that not all students who attend the course will perform tattoo removal with Astanza systems after certification, so we try to share as much applicable knowledge about other systems as possible.  Our goal for every course is to help students feel confident performing laser tattoo removal on any tattoo and with any type of laser. Keep reading to learn more about the lasers you’ll train with during New Look Laser College. For a more in-depth look into New Look Laser College, join us for our free FAQ webinar on September 20th!


The Astanza Duality
(AKA a “Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser”)

Training with the Astanza Duality tattoo removal laserThe Astanza Duality is our “workhorse” laser and a crowd favorite at New Look Laser College. This is the primary laser our students learn to use because majority of tattoo removal clinics have at least a dual-wavelength device similar to the Duality.

Known for its reliability, high performance, and consistent results, the Astanza Duality is an easy-to-use Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser that targets a wide range of ink colors, including black, brown, purple, blue, green, red, orange and yellow. The Duality uses 1064 nm and 532 nm wavelengths and has a 5 mm square spot size.   


The Astanza Trinity
(Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser PLUS a Q-Switched Ruby Laser)

Students also train with the Astanza Trinity, a three-wavelength system (1064 nm, 532 nm, and 694 nm) that combines the power of two standalone lasers, the Duality and the Eternity.

The Trinity has all the power and capability of the Duality with the added benefit of the Eternity’s 694 nm wavelength. This wavelength allows practitioners to target brighter, more stubborn tattoo ink colors, including lime green, sky blue, teal, resistant black, etc.  Three-wavelength systems like the Trinity provide the most effective solution for complete, full-spectrum tattoo removal. 


*NEW* Astanza Etherea MX + Acroma Handpiece
Portable Platform System with an Interchangeable Handpiece

The Astanza Etherea MX is the latest laser addition to the New Look Laser College lineup, and students will have the opportunity to train with it during upcoming courses!  The Etherea MX is a unique tool for tattoo removal because it functions as a “platform” system with seven interchangeable handpieces that can perform over 70 different FDA-cleared laser procedures. 

The Etherea MX’s Acroma handpiece is used for tattoo removal and is similar to the Astanza Duality because it features the same 1064 nm and 532 nm wavelengths and is a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. However, unlike the Duality, the Acroma handpiece supports various spot sizes for its 1064 nm wavelength (3, 5, 7, and 9 mm).  Students who train with the Etherea MX’s Acroma handpiece will gain valuable experience using a portable system.


*Note: The Duality is currently used at courses held outside of our Dallas, TX Headquarters. If you are interested in gaining additional training with the Etherea MX or EternityTSR, please attend one of our upcoming Dallas, TX courses. This is subject to change, please contact to determine which laser will be used at your specific course. 



New Look Laser College believes in providing a diverse training experience with various lasers to educate our students. Not only will students gain unparalleled experience working with different lasers, they will also see the many competitive features that each individual laser has to offer and better understand which laser they want to invest in for their practice.

What to Expect at New Look Laser College Training

What to Expect at New Look Laser College Training

One of the questions we’re asked the most is, “What can I expect during New Look Laser College training?” Short answer: a good time with lasers and breakfast tacos. Long answer: keep reading!

The Curriculum
During New Look Laser College, our students learn the relevant concepts they need to be successful and safe with laser tattoo removal. These include laser safety and protocol, laser physics, assessing tattoos, treating patients, operating a clinic, and effectively marketing your clinic to tattoo patients.

It’s important to us that our students leave our training course confident enough in their skills that they could perform laser tattoo removal on their own (of course, we’re only a call away if you need us). Students also learn how to use the DESCRIBE® PDF Patch, a laser accessory used for enhancing tattoo removal treatments. Click here to view the full curriculum.

What About Hands-On Training?
No laser course would be complete without hands-on laser training. That’s why we give each student the opportunity to fire our lasers on real tattoos. New Look Laser College brings in real tattoo removal patients for our students to practice on under the supervision of our team of clinical experts. Each patient can have wildly different tattoos than the next, giving our students experience removing a variety of sleeve tattoos, minimalistic designs, black ink, or full-color artwork located in different areas on the body (face, neck, chest, back, legs, arms, hands, etc.).

What Will the Day Look Like?
All New Look Laser College training courses span two days, and lecture and hands-on training are held from 9:00 AM to roughly 5:00 PM. Day One consists of lecture in the morning until we break for lunch, and the entire afternoon is dedicated to hands-on laser training. Day Two begins with lecture and hands-on training with the DESCRIBE® PFD Patch. The afternoon is spent with more laser-related topics, marketing and clinic operation insights, and the certification exam.

What Do I Need to Bring?
Just YOU! All students will receive a course binder detailing the lecture topics covered during the training course. Note taking materials will be provided, but students are welcome to bring in additional notebooks, iPads or laptops. The use of professional cameras for the sake of recording the lecture is prohibited, but photos and videos of the hands-on training is allowed.

What’s the Dress Code?
Students ask us if they have to wear scrubs to New Look Laser College, especially during the hands-on training. The answer is, no. We want you to be comfortable, whether that means wearing scrubs, jeans, slacks, or hula skirts, for that matter. We do ask that students refrain from wearing anything that may get in their way during treatments (i.e. long, flowing sleeves, bulky jewelry etc.).

I’m Ready! How Do I Sign Up?
Registering for New Look Laser College is easy! We offer courses at our Dallas headquarters, throughout the US and internationally. Registration is entirely online for your convenience (you could probably register for NLLC training faster than you could order a pizza, TBH). Click here to view the full schedule!
