Have you been looking into Esthetician programs? Do you love beauty and skincare? You may want to consider getting into the medical aesthetic industry. This is a sixteen billion dollar industry. The focus is still on skincare and beauty. Treatments are just more advanced and effective. There is no better compliment to becoming an esthetician than becoming a laser technician as well.
Most esthetician programs take about four to six months to complete if you are a full-time student. During that time you will learn how to perform a variety of skin care treatments. Important things like how to give a facial massage and treatments such as microdermabrasion. After you have completed an esthetician program you’ll have a greater understanding of the skin. As an esthetician you can go on to open your own business or work for a spa or salon. You can also specialize in one area such as waxing. Many of our students at the National Laser Institute are estheticians. Many estheticians find that getting certified to become a laser technician opens up many possibilities for them.
What does a laser technician do?
A laser technician is someone who performs cosmetic laser treatments. These treatments range from treating acne scarring to diminishing the appearance of stretch marks. Depending on the skin issue as a laser technician you will decide which treatment is right for their client. After finishing an esthetician program, getting a laser technician certification is the perfect complement. You will be able to provide your clients with a wide range of treatments! They can come to you for all their skincare needs from facials to an IPL treatment, When it comes to the job market you will have many options. People who are skilled as both an esthetician and are able to perform cosmetic laser treatments are in high demand! As a laser technician, you can perform treatments such as:
- Laser Hair Removal
- Cellulite reduction
- Laser Tattoo Removal
- And many more!
