Certified Laser Technician
Certified laser technicians use cosmetic lasers to effectively treat a variety of problematic skin issues. This includes laser hair removal, radiofrequency skin tightening, IPL photofacial skin rejuvenation, cellulite reduction, stretch mark reduction, and more. It is important for individuals to receive proper laser training and education before treating clients. Gaining certification teaches you the importance of laser and client safety so that you can perform the best services possible.
Become a Certified Laser Technician
Each state has its own rules and regulations for becoming a certified laser technician. There are some states that only allow doctors, nurses, physicians, and other medical professionals to receive training. In most states, individuals with a high school education, GED, or higher can enroll in a laser training course to gain certification.
Unlike esthetics school, laser technician training takes about two weeks to complete. Courses like National Laser Institute’s comprehensive training program include hands-on training with clients to gain real world experience. It’s important to find a laser school that’s accredited and includes clinical experience required, if needed.
