Cosmetic Laser Safety

Laser safety is an important part of cosmetic laser training. In order to properly learn laser aesthetics, you must be trained on risk management, standards, and overall safety of cosmetic laser equipment. This ensures the safety of your client and liability toward you and your laser practice.

National Laser Institute is the leading laser school in the nation, offering hands-on laser training courses that include laser safety training. We provide you with the clinical applications in the industry and promote an understanding of cosmetic laser safety. This includes in-depth instruction on equipment, settings, the Fitzpatrick scale, and how to effectively and safely treat different skin types.

Laser Safety Applications

In order to create informed, well-trained laser technicians, laser training at National Laser Institute covers the following in laser safety:

1. Initial Consultation: Attendees will learn what questions need to be asked before applying any type of laser treatment. This includes current medical history, if they have recently had sun exposure, if they are expecting, if they have a history of scarring, and other important pre-existing medical conditions.

2. Skin Safety: There are certain lasers can only be applied to certain skin types. Attendees will become knowledgeable as to what laser treatments can and cannot be performed on multiple skin types.

3. Patch Testing: If this is a client’s first time receiving a laser treatment or first time with a certain laser, it is best to provide a patch test. In clinical training, attendees learn what ares are best for patch tests and how to tell if the skin is providing a good or bad reaction.
