Should I Add Tattoo Removal to My Business?

Should I Add Tattoo Removal to My BusinessHave you ever thought about adding tattoo removal to your business?

In recent years the medical aesthetics industry has seen an influx of clients requesting tattoo removal treatments – and this trend is expected to continue in the future!

Here are three reasons why you should consider this popular medical aesthetics treatment if you are looking to receive your laser tech certification!

Should I Add Tattoo Removal to My Business?

Here is why you should consider laser tattoo removal training:

#1. Overwhelming statistics. Did you know over 45 million Americans have at least one tattoo? Of this group, 45 percent range between the ages of 18 to 25. Over half of the men and women who had a tattoo removed did so because they suffered embarrassment; however, there are several reasons clients get a tattoo removed. As the number of tattoos increases, so will the need for skilled tattoo removal technicians.

#2. Increasing patient base. If you are looking to expand your business and offer more services to your practice, then adding laser tattoo removal to your business is the way to go! Numbers don’t lie – the potential clientele is enormous!

#3. Additional income. The average laser tattoo removal session costs between $200 and $500, and each procedure takes around 15 minutes to perform. As a cosmetic laser tech, if you perform three to four procedures an hour, you could earn an additional $800 an hour. But the potential income does not stop there. Clients often need 10 to 12 laser tattoo removal sessions, which makes the average income per patient around $2,000.
