Comprehensive Laser Course Overview

laser trainingOur comprehensive laser course is our most popular and sought-after program. It encompasses a wide range of treatments, equipment, and the ultimate learning experience! Students who complete this training are prepared to work with cosmetic lasers in any type of medical aesthetics setting, including medical spas, dermatologist’s offices, plastic surgeon’s offices, and other medical practices.

The first 5 days of this laser training course are spent in the classroom learning from experienced and professional expert instructors. You will also receive Laser Safety Officer training. Almost all offices nationwide require 1 individual on their staff to be a Laser Safety Officer. This prepares you to handle the laser equipment in a safe and effective manner as well as provide you with in-depth knowledge on how to provide efficient treatments.

The remaining days in our comprehensive laser course covers hands-on clinical training within a retail medical spa where students will treat a large amount of scheduled clients in order to gain real world experience. Students learn how to perform laser hair removal, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) photofacial skin rejuvenation, laser spider vein reduction, laser acne treatments, body contouring/fat reduction, cellulite reduction, radiofrequency skin tightening, laser wrinkle reduction, laser fractionalized & RF skin rejuvenation, laser skin tightening using the 1064/755 platform (known for the laser facial peel), laser tattoo removal, and the latest medical aesthetics treatments such as Microcurrent, Lamprobe, dermal infusion, vibration non-crystal advanced Microderm technologies, laser teeth whitening and more.

At the end of our comprehensive laser training course, students will be prepared to confidently provide these treatments to their own clientele in a safe, professional, and efficient manner. This comprehensive class is ideal for those who want to learn the industry’s most in-demand cosmetic laser treatments in order to treat multiple skincare needs.

Why Become a Laser Technician?

laser technicianThe medical aesthetics industry has rapidly grown. In fact, laser hair removal and photo skin rejuvenation were two of the top nonsurgical cosmetic treatments performed last year. Over 1 million laser hair removal treatments were performed in the United States alone just in the last year. The medical aesthetics industry is a billion dollar industry and isn’t expected to slow down anytime soon. This is the best time to become a laser technician.

If you’re looking to become a laser technician, now is the right time. In this booming and ever-changing industry, there are new and exciting technologies coming out every year. The more well-rounded that you are in your skill set, the more attractive you are in the marketplace. Remember that even though laser hair removal is the most sought after procedure, if your prospective employer knows you are proficient in photofacials, wrinkle reduction and acne scar reduction, skin tightening and tattoo removal etc. you are a far more valuable employee, thus your potential for salary will be much higher. If you want to learn more, you can also watch our quick news segment video to see why laser technicians are one of the hottest careers right now!

Career Advancement

Our comprehensive laser course includes a marketing seminar presented by National Laser Institute founder, Louis Silberman, who built one of the largest medical spas in the country seeing 3,000+ clients per month. Silberman was also nominated as a semi-finalist for Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year. During this seminar, attendees will gain tools and advice on how to market themselves to potential employers as well as how to market services. There will also be tips on opening up your own business and attracting clientele. Many National Laser Institute graduates have gone on to open their own laser clinics or work for others in a medical office or medical spa environment.

We also offer graduates access to our online medical aesthetics library, a resource for those who want to expand their knowledge. Our comprehensive online library includes thousands of pages of information, from clinical studies, informative videos, treatment information, career tools, medical aesthetic news, business development, equipment information, marketing materials, and much more.

During our comprehensive course, we also videotape all of our students during their clinical training. This allows our instructors to sit with you one-on-one after the filming to show you your technique and help you improve within any areas (just like professional sports teams do) before you step foot into the working world. It’s just another way we help you become successful in this industry!

Laser Training Testimonials

I had an amazing learning experience at National Laser Institute and a fabulous time. The education was AAA+ and really exceeded all my expectations. It’s very apparent why National Laser Institute is the nation’s more reputable school for laser training. I graduated from National Laser Institute on March 25th and I am proud to say on my first interview I was hired and will now be working for a beautiful spa doing laser as of April 20th! Yes, that’s right. I got a job in less than 30 days!! Thank you, National Laser Institute!
– Cindy Cullen

I received my education from National Laser Institute and I wanted to let you guys know that I now have a job at a cosmetic laser center in my home town. I started working there last year in August. It has been a wonderful experience and I LOVE my job. My boss has been impressed with my general knowledge and competency with the lasers. I owe that to National Laser Institute. When people ask me where I went to school for this, I’m always proud to say National Laser Institute. It was such a memorable experience. Now, I am making more money than I thought possible as a new aesthetician. I want to thank you and all the staff at The National Laser Institute for helping me with that.
– Lacy Randall

Thank you for the amazing experience I gained at National Laser Institute! It has been a YEAR since completing my studies and while at National Laser Institute, I not only gained a wealth of knowledge in my chosen laser career but also gained lifelong friends! With the knowledge gained at National Laser Institute I was able to secure a laser specialist position at a top notch upscale med spa. There I excelled and went on to now manage an upcoming med spa and from all of the knowledge in lasers, marketing and more I am proud to say we are surpassing our greatest expectations! National Laser Institute gave me the opportunities to be able to do what I love every day! Thank you so much!
