If you don’t believe us, check out our testimonial page or our podcast where graduates tell story after story of how this industry has completely changed their life and the lives of their family members. There’s a reason that this industry is booming – our clients love it and the people who work in this industry love what they do!

In our 2-week comprehensive program, you’ll learn all the most in-demand cosmetic laser treatments to be able to leave our program feeling confident in your ability to get a job and start working on clients. Our program is completely hands-on so don’t worry, your first time working on a real, paying client won’t be on the job, you’ll get to do that right in school! You’ll learn the following how to administer the following treatments:

  • Laser hair removal
  • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacial
  • Laser spider vein reduction
  • Laser acne treatments
  • CoolSculpting body contouring
  • Cellulite reduction
  • Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening
  • Laser wrinkle reduction
  • Laser skin tightening
  • Laser tattoo removal

All of these treatments are in high demand in the medical aesthetic industry. Depending on where you work and what you do, you’ll be treating clients with all of these procedures or you’ll specialize in one such as laser tattoo removal. 

Speaking of where you’ll work, where can you work as a cosmetic laser technician?

Physicians’ offices

These days it is now possible to get all kinds of treatments at your normal primary physician. Many physicians, obstetricians, and OB/GYNs are adding all types of medical aesthetic services to their practice. Because these services are not covered by insurance, there is less of a hassle about the treatment and many physicians make good money out of offering these services.

Day spas and beauty salons

While day spas typically focus on relaxation and rejuvenation, they have recognized the need to add these services to deliver more dramatic results. Some businesses have brought in a physician or nurse to provide cosmetic procedures to their clients who might already get laser hair reduction and Botox elsewhere. This is the perfect place to work if you want to be in a beautiful and relaxing environment while you make people look and feel their best.

Niche boutiques

Small businesses focusing on only one type of treatment can decrease overhead costs while providing excellent service. Niche boutiques have become popular for procedures like laser hair and tattoo removal. While these cosmetic treatments typically require multiple sessions to be effective, this can turn new clients into repeat customers. This is the perfect place to work if you are looking for a smaller, more intimate environment with a lot of repeat clients.

Fitness centers

Recently, some national fitness chains have begun to offer cosmetic laser treatments as part of their in-house spa amenities. Fitness centers are capitalizing on their current member base and expanding to non-members to provide a one-stop-shop. This is a great place to work if you want to be around clients who are healthy and fit individuals that want to optimize how their body looks and feels.

Following the course you’ll be able to:

  • Recognize the unique characteristics of a cosmetic client
  • Understand the fundamentals of how a laser interacts with skin tissue
  • Explain how different types of light-based devices interact with the skin in nonsurgical procedures
  • Identify safety issues and complications as well as recognize contraindications for various cosmetic laser treatments
  • Determine which types of laser treatments will create the desired results for your clients
  • Understand the hazards associated with cosmetic lasers and how to avoid them
  • Demonstrate proper technique and safe operation of laser and pulsed light devices
  • Explain the benefits, expectations, and results associated with several laser devices

Why Do People Love Working In This Industry?

If you read our testimonials and listen to our podcast you will begin to see that the people who work in the medical aesthetic industry truly love what they do every day! They love their clients and they love the flexibility that this career offers. A lot of people get into this field because they love the beauty industry. With laser treatments, you can deeply affect a client’s life. Some people avoid going out or have spent years feeling insecure due to the appearance of their skin. The ability of these treatments to improve the look and feel of their skin does wonders for their overall happiness. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing that you helped a client get through that and now they are living a better life because of you! Beauty gets people into this industry but changing client’s lives is what keeps people in this industry!
