Estheticians are skin care specialists who perform treatments such as facials, sugar scrubs, chemical peels and waxing. They are licensed only to work on the epidermis layer of the skin.
In recent years, many estheticians have sought out medical aesthetics training to perform treatments like laser hair removal, radiofrequency wrinkle reduction, acne reduction and much more!
If you are an esthetician considering a career change, here are four reasons why you should continue your education and enter this $16 billion marketplace.
Reasons To Continue Your Education
- More job opportunities
Medical spas and businesses that offer medical aesthetic services are always seeking new talent to add to their staff. By having additional training and certificates, you separate yourself from the competition and show potential employers that you have a thirst for the industry.
- Gain more confidence
The more hands-on training and experience you have in medical aesthetics, the more confidence you will gain in your skills as a cosmetic laser tech. And that confidence will show whether you are with a client or interviewing for your next full-time gig!
- Expand your professional network
It’s important to surround yourself with like-minded people. Training at a medical aesthetics school provides you the opportunity to meet new people who share the same passion for the industry. These new connections can be beneficial as you can ask questions and brainstorm ideas.
- Learn from the best
Seeking out additional training allows you to learn from some of the industry’s brightest. After all, don’t you want to have the opportunity to learn from the best?
One of the things that makes National Laser Institute unique is students have the opportunity to learn from up to 15 different expert instructors during our 2-week courses. Our instructors are some of the industry’s leading nurses, doctors, skincare specialists and cosmetic laser techs with 5 – 20 years of experience in the field.
Medical Aesthetics Training
At National Laser Institute, we offer a variety of courses to fit your learning goals! The best part: Courses can be completed in just 2 weeks.
If you are considering a career as a cosmetic laser technician, we offer a Comprehensive Laser Course that will teach you the most in-demand laser treatments, including laser hair removal, laser wrinkle reduction and tattoo removal.
The first half of the course is spent in the classroom where you will learn things like facial anatomy, tissue interaction and pre- and post-patient care. The remaining days will be spent doing clinical hands-on training in our educational setting. We have a dedicated team that schedules clients for you to work on in order to gain real world experience. During hands-on training, you will watch live demonstrations and get the chance to perform these treatments yourself.
By the end of the course, you will feel prepared to confidently administer laser treatments for any skin type in a variety of medical aesthetic setting, including medical spas, doctor’s offices and other medical practices.
