Laser Esthetics Course

An esthetics course is beneficial to have in your back pocket if you want to set yourself up for success in the beauty industry. In most esthetics courses, you will learn how to do facials, apply make-up, give massages, and do other treatments to the skin. However, there are other key skills that will set you apart from other estheticians which will make you the clear choice when it comes to attracting clients. These key skills are obtained through cosmetic laser training. Esthetics training with a specialty in cosmetic lasers is important because it will teach you how to perform laser treatments safely, correctly, and effectively. At the National Laser Institute, we will provide you with an education on the following skills so you can be confident to offer cosmetic lasers to your clients.

Skills Beneficial to the Esthetics Course

Time Management

Time management is an essential skill in esthetic medicine. According to, “organizing each day helps you to complete work on time, stay engaged during important meetings, and give you space to be creative and proactive in your tasks.” In esthetic medicine, it is important to manage your day with forethought and intelligent planning. Throughout the day, laser technicians manage multiple clients with different skin care plans for each.

As well as that, organizational skills will assist in keeping stations clean and ready for use. In addition, prioritizing tasks is important to schedule out what responsibility needs to be handled in what order.


A few examples of communication in the workplace are active listening, sharing feedback, nonverbal cues, confidence, and empathy. Although there are many communication skills that are used in the workplace, these are just a few commonly used in esthetic medicine. For example, when you are actively listening to your coworkers and clients, you are engaging with the conversation and asking questions. As well as that, a strong communicator will share constructive feedback. In contrast, a strong communicator is also able to accept constructive criticism.

In esthetic medicine, you are constantly learning and improving in the workplace. A strong communicator can use feedback to improve their laser techniques, as well as their ability to interact and empathize with clients in a professional, yet genuine manner. Communication in esthetic medicine is crucial in building connections within the industry. In addition, a confident communicator has a greater chance of presenting ideas in the workplace that are well-received.


Furthermore, problem-solving skills will be essential in your career as a cosmetic laser technician and in your laser esthetics course. As well as that, problem-solving skills will help you to find the most effective solution. In addition, problem-solving skills will catch issues before they occur.

A few examples of problem-solving skills that are beneficial in the esthetics course are active listening, research, creativity, and decision making. A good problem-solver will utilize their research to isolate the problem and gather more information on how to move forward. For example, you can gather information from your other team members, instructors, and/or mentors. In addition, a good problem-solver will use their analytical and knowledge skills to make decisions as questions may occur.
