Tattoo Removal Laser & Skin Treatment Training

This 1-day manufactures machine operators training course, includes a full day of guided and supported study on underpinning knowledge and practical application of the treatments you can perform with our Tattoo removal machine, at our Training centre in Rotherham.

Alongside this course you should also complete the Grade 4 online core of knowledge which can be provided by us with the purchase of your machine.

Both these courses are required to gain insurance to provide treatments.

Our Tattoo course isn’t CPD accredited, therefore it will only benefit you if you have purchased one of our Tattoo removal machines.

When tattoo ink is injected by the tattooist, this disruption to the tissue is interpreted by the body’s immune system as a “wound”. The foreign material of the large ink particles are first “held” by the fibroblasts and later enmeshed in collagen fibres.

Tattoo ink from a professional tattoo lies deep in the Dermis

The three main layers of the skin.

  • The Epidermis – the outer layer of skin
  • The Dermis – is where the particles of tattoo ink are deposited.
  • The Sub-dermal fat/collagen layer.

Laser tattoo removal breaks down the tattoo by applying intense pulses of light to the ink pigment. As ink absorbs this light energy, pigments break down, becoming smaller. Smaller pigments are then removed by the immune system.

Further treatments possible using your Tattoo removal laser that will be covered on the training day.

  • Carbon Facial treatments –
  • Nail fungal treatments
  • Vascular treatments

Course Content

The purpose of a Q-switch – how it works.

  • A “Q-Switch” is an electronic device for creating very short pulses of light
  • By using a Q-switch the laser energy is delivered in a very short pulse
  • The energy is absorbed so quickly in the tattoo ink that if the energy setting is correct the tattoo ink rapidly expands and “explodes”
  • The ink is mechanically broken down into fragments
  • The small fragments are able to pass between the fibres holding the tattoo
  • These fragments are removed by the body’s immune system

Semi-permanent make up.

  • Removal of lip liner
  • Removal of Semi-permanent brows
