Laser Hair Removal Course Overview

laser hair removal trainingIn this 8-day laser hair removal training course, students will learn everything they need to know about the skills and techniques to perform laser hair removal. Our laser hair removal training course includes 40 hours of classroom education that prepares students in the fundamentals of laser and IPL education.

This course also provides 24 hours (3 days) of clinical observations and treatments with laser hair removal. Treatments are performed on live models in a retail med spa. We utilize laser and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology and are the only school in country that trains you on both technologies. Laser Safety Officer Training is included in this course.

The first 5 days are spent in the classroom preparing students for laser hair removal treatments and training. At the end of the 5 days, students will have earned the required 40 hours they need in order to receive their Laser Safety Officer Training. Once this portion of class is complete, students will feel at ease with their newly acquired in-depth knowledge of laser safety and procedures.

The last 3 days of laser hair removal training include clinical observations and hands-on experience. By this point, students will feel comfortable enough to take on this clinical portion of class. Students will have 24 hours of hands-on experience with real clients at National Laser Institute’s retail medical spa in order to gain real-world laser hair removal experience. A course instructor will be with students at all times to guide them and ensure they are conducting the treatment efficiently.

With the use of both lasers and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology, students will gain experience incomparable to any other laser training center in the country. Overall, this laser hair removal training course will prepare students to move forward in their careers as laser hair removal technicians.

Why Become a Laser Hair Removal Technician?

Because laser hair removal is reigning as one of the most popular skin care treatments today, the industry is constantly in need of laser technicians. In fact, the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons reported that there were over 1 million laser hair removal treatments performed in the U.S. last year. Laser hair removal treatments take between 15-45 minutes to perform (depending on the area or areas treated) with sessions that cost clients anywhere from $100 – $250 per area. Since laser hair removal is a series treatment (meaning clients need more than one to see results), laser hair removal technicians have the potential to make thousands of dollars off just one client.

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.
