29 / 07 / 2024 to 28 / 08 / 2024

The Lynton Lasers Training Academy is the UK's leading and dedicated Laser and IPL facility

In the ever-growing and expanding aesthetics industry, being able to show that you have regulated qualifications is a great way to set you apart from other clinics. It also enables you to gain the best knowledge in performing treatments, which helps you to achieve the best results for your clients.

The Lynton Training Academy was one of the first training centres to offer the VTCT Level 5 Tattoo Removal Qualification as we have a range of tattoo removal systems available for you to use to gain practical experience.

About This Course

This in-depth Level 5 Qualification teaches you everything you need to know about laser tattoo removal, including professional tattoos, amateur and semi-permanent makeup removal (eyebrows only).

As well as covering all the theory necessary you will complete practical hands-on training at the state-of-the-art Lynton Clinic. You will treat live models and by the end of the course, you will feel confident to be able to administer treatments safely and effectively at your own premises.

This course is suitable for anyone who has completed a Level 4 Laser & IPL Qualification looking to further their qualifications and knowledge in tattoo removal with a Level 5 Training Qualification accredited by VTCT.

Why Train with Lynton?

Delivered at the UK’s only dedicated training academy specifically for laser & IPL training, our brand-new, state-of-the-art premises offer the perfect environment for in-depth clinical training. Working with our friendly team of experienced lecturers, you will be trained and assisted to help ensure you gain Level 5 accreditation.

Our training centre is equipped with the latest interactive audio-visual technology, which, coupled with treatment rooms housing our industry-leading aesthetic devices, allow delegates to receive excellent educational content together with live demonstrations and hands-on experience with live models.

Uniquely, we are able to offer hands-on experience on a wide range of different systems, unlike many other training providers who generally only have one system at their disposal. For example, at the Lynton Training Academy, we are able to offer tattoo removal training using passive and active lasers (Q-Switched Nd:YAG at 1064 and 532) to treat 10 different tattoos, black and colour on different areas of the body.

What Will You Get Out of It?

  • You will gain a formal VTCT accredited qualification in the use of Lasers for Tattoo Removal.
  • Following completion, you will understand the skin in further detail, including the ageing of the skin. This opens up the opportunity for you to attend a Level 6 course in the future.

Attended Core of Knowledge here last month to learn about lasers and intense light sources. Excellent course with great attention to details and safety. The physics theory was very interesting and the rationale for choosing specific wavelengths and energies for various treatments in different skin types was well explained. I contacted Lynton Lasers again today for advice on hair removal treatment in dark skins (FP V and VI), latest “pain -free “systems and the physics of it all! The physicist who came to my rescue was Jon Exley who answered my questions and really improved my understanding. I find Lynton Lasers to be very helpful and thorough in their approach and extremely supportive. Thank you!

Expansion of Premises to Facilitate Entry into Export Markets

To facilitate its entry into new export markets, Lynton Lasers Ltd required increased manufacturing space, as well as new demonstration and training facilities. To this end, LEADER Funding was applied for, and won, to support the refurbishment of an adjacent business unit (Unit 9d) as well as the re-arrangement and refurbishment of the existing business unit (Unit 6) on Holmes Chapel Business Park.

This Project was part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development
