Laser Tattoo Removal Certifications

Laser tattoo removal is one of the fastest growing procedures in the aesthetics world. As this procedure grows wildly more popular each year, the demand for trained practitioners grows with it.

New Look Laser College is the world’s first laser training program dedicated to tattoo removal. Training is offered at select locations worldwide, both in the United States (where the course was founded) and internationally.

Upon completion of training, each New Look Laser College training client will receive three certifications acknowledging their newfound background in laser training and gain authorization to perform laser tattoo removal and other cosmetic laser procedures with Q-switched lasers.

Our training program is taught by leading experts in the tattoo removal industry and will equip you with comprehensive knowledge and hands-on experience to help you succeed in this growing field.

The three wavelengths that you will be trained to use are:

  • 1064 nm (Q-switched Nd:YAG laser)
  • 532 nm (Q-switched Nd:YAG laser)
  • and potentially 694 nm (Q-switched Ruby Laser)

Certification in these laser wavelengths will allow patients to recognize that you have assessed real patient tattoos, know how to determine the best laser setting to use when treating tattoos, and have personally performed treatments under the supervision of tattoo removal training professionals.
