laser hair removal trainingCosmetic laser technicians are taught through a laser hair reduction training program to perform hair removal and other laser services on clients. Laser hair reduction is part of the billion dollar nonsurgical anti-aging industry, and National Laser Institute can help you obtain the training you need to begin your journey in this exciting field. It doesn’t matter if you’ve worked in the beauty or anti-aging industry before or not–you can become laser trained in two short weeks.

What a Laser Technician Does

A laser technician is qualified to perform laser hair reduction and a variety of other laser treatments on clients. They are capable of working with various state-of-the-art laser equipment and are able to adjust your settings based on your skin type and history. Laser technicians customize your treatment based on your skincare goals and desires in order to give you flawless results.

Training Information

Laser hair reduction training requirements vary from state to state, but in most states you must have previously completed your high school education or earned your GED. You also must attend a training program and meet your state’s required hours for hands-on clinical training. Many people wonder if you need an aesthetic license to attend a laser hair reduction training school. You do not, but if you were thinking of also attending an aesthetician school we recommend completing laser training first. This is because laser training takes two weeks whereas aesthetician school can take 6-12 months.

Career Opportunities

As a laser technician, you have many doors open to you. National Laser Institute’s laser tech graduates have gone on to work for dermatology clinics, medical spas, doctor’s offices, OBGYN clinics, healthcare facilities, salons, and have even opened their own laser centers! In our two week course, we also provide information regarding the business aspect of the laser market with all kinds of advice if you are thinking of starting up your own company.

Making a change to a new career can be scary, and National Laser Institute recognizes that. We have our own Graduate Services Department that sends out 100-200 job leads each month to help you find an opening in your area. We also provide you with access to the largest online medical esthetic library in the nation, which is a helpful resource for articles, books, glossary, products, statistics, reports, and more.
