laser technicians earn supplemental incomeLet’s face it, most of us have hectic schedules. We have kids, jobs, commitments, recreational activities, relationships and still have to take the time to take care of ourselves and our home. Life isn’t anything like it was in the 1950’s where families had time to gather around a home-cooked meal every night–especially if you’re working a full time job on top of managing other responsibilities.

That’s why cosmetic laser technicians has been called a great part time job for those who are looking to make good money while still finding time to balance out weekly commitments. Laser technicians have the opportunity to make commission on top of hourly pay, too, which allows them to earn more cash in a shorter-hour week.

“Cosmetic laser technician is a career some people do part time while holding down another full-time job,” says Louis Silberman, president of National Laser Institute. “Cosmetic laser technicians work mostly in med spas. They perform procedures like laser hair reduction and laser skin resurfacing. Some RNs have received their laser certification to increase their earning potential by performing cosmetic procedures.”

Plus, on top of hourly and possibly commission, cosmetic laser technicians also have the opportunity to earn tips from their clients as well. This is definitely beneficial if you enjoy interacting with clients while helping build back their self esteem by providing effective cosmetic laser treatments.
