A Job in Cosmetic Lasers Can Help Financially Support You Post-Divorce

After a tough divorce, you might be ready for a change. New hair, fresh wardrobe . . . new career? Although many people feel anxiety about making such big changes, one of the most rewarding careers is a job in the cosmetic laser industry.

Each year, millions of Americans receive cosmetic laser treatments. From laser hair removal to laser tattoo removal to laser acne reduction–these in-demand services are taking the beauty market to a new level: technology. Because of technological advancement, many Americans now choose to permanently remove unwanted hair with laser hair removal instead of paying for monthly waxings. Why wait for wrinkle creams that may or may not work when cosmetic laser technology can dramatically reduce those fine lines?

Many cosmetic laser technicians have experienced a financially rewarding career in this field. Whereas one waxing service could cost between $20-$40, one treatment of laser hair removal typically costs anywhere from $75 – $200 (depending on the size of the area). There are other higher price point treatments, too. radio frequency and MicroLaserPeels can go anywhere from $400 – $800 and reveal life changing results. These treatments don’t take all day to perform, either. The average is 30 minutes to 1 hour, but others like laser tattoo removal can take as little as ten minutes. This means you’re able to see multiple clients in a day and benefit from the income.

But cosmetic laser technician careers aren’t just financially rewarding. Clients who come in to see you are typically unhappy with the way they look–whether it’s from acne, wrinkles, age spots, or scars. As a laser technician, you’re able to restore confidence in your clients and make them love the person in the mirror.

National Laser Institute, the leading cosmetic laser school in the nation, offers a two week cosmetic laser training program for those considering becoming cosmetic laser technicians.
