6 Most Popular Places Laser Techs Are Employed

6 Most Popular Places Laser Techs Are Employed

1.Medical Spas

Cosmetic lasers at medical spas go hand-in-hand with non-laser treatments including chemical peels, microdermabrasion, oxygen facials, Botox and dermal fillers.  While non-laser services can give clients beautiful skin on a surface level, cosmetic lasers take beautification to a much deeper level.  It is often said, the more invasive the procedure, the greater and better the results.

2.Dermatology Clinics

Like medical spas, dermatology clinics offer cosmetic lasers to assist with the skin care needs of their patients.  Because most laser treatments are not medically necessary and are not covered by insurance, cosmetic lasers offer a coveted cash-based income opportunity for dermatologists.

3.Plastic Surgeon Offices

Plastic surgeons offer laser treatments as a non-surgical service to compliment their cosmetic surgery services. For example, if there is scarring from surgery, laser treatments are offered as a complimentary service post op once the skin has healed.  

4.Primary Care Physicians

Primary care physicians are new providers of cosmetic lasers and represent a rapidly growing trend in the beauty industry. Primary care physicians are always looking for new ways to serve their patients better. They are adding cosmetic lasers and enjoying increased profits by marketing laser treatments to their current patients.


An increasing number of salons are adding cosmetic lasers to their service offering.  This unorthodox concept is truly groundbreaking.  Salons are bringing all aspects of the beauty industry under one roof.  It’s convenient, affordable, and provides clients with a state-of-the-art full-service menu.  Clients can get their hair cut and styled, their nails done, a facial, Botox and fillers, and laser treatments.  

6.Fitness Centers

Big box fitness chains are now offering cosmetic lasers as part of their in-house spa amenities to differentiate themselves from their competition. Just like primary care doctors and salons, fitness centers are capitalizing on their existing membership base and offering cosmetic lasers to become a convenient one-stop-shop for their members. Fitness centers offering cosmetic lasers cater to the well-being of the active, athletic fitness enthusiast.  They often welcome non-members who can make use of club amenities, including child care, on the day of their appointment.
