Estheticians Benefit from Laser Hair Reduction School

lasertechOne of the biggest career advancements that many estheticians have taken is becoming laser certified. As a certified esthetician, you are capable of performing facials, waxing, peels, and other topical skin care treatments within spas, medical spas, resorts and hotels, salons, and more. Licensed estheticians are also capable of performing cosmetic services in the makeup and beauty realm. But when it comes to cosmetic lasers, esthetician school won’t cut it.

Estheticians must attend a laser hair reduction school if they want to become certified to perform laser hair reduction or other cosmetic laser services. This is not included in esthetician school because esthetic training only covers the epidermal layer of skin, whereas cosmetic laser training includes both the epidermal and dermal layer of skin.

Laser hair reduction ranks #3 in the nonsurgical cosmetic treatment category with over 1 million treatments perform just in the last year. In order to make income and career advancements, estheticians can add laser hair reduction training to their skill sets in as little as two weeks!

Requirements and Training

In order to attend a laser school in most states, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You must be 18 years or older
  • You must have your high school diploma or GED

You do not necessarily need to be an esthetician before enrolling in a laser hair reduction course in most states. It’s important to check your state’s regulations, as there are a few that only allow medical professionals to perform cosmetic laser treatments.
