A career as a laser technician means more than just performing laser hair removal. Although laser hair removal may be one of the most well-known laser treatments, there are certainly many more. IPL photofacials, fractional wrinkle reduction, laser tattoo removal, and laser acne reduction are just a few. In fact, many laser technicians have had luck introducing these not-so-well-known services to existing clients.

What makes laser technicians so sure that clients will want other cosmetic laser treatments? Like laser hair removal, many of these laser services are noninvasive. This means quick in and out treatments. There are also minimal risk factors involved with lasers versus plastic surgery. In fact, a new JAMA Dermatology study stated nonsurgical cosmetic treatments such as laser services low adverse side effects and are considered very safe.

Because technology has advanced over the last decade, clients are able to see faster, more youthful results in a shorter amount of time. For instance, fractional wrinkle reduction uses fractional laser technology to stimulate collagen and reduce wrinkles, large pores, acne scars, and more. IPL (intense pulsed light) photofacial treatments use a combination of light and energy to rid dark pigments, age spots, sun damage, and much more. As a society obsessed with achieving perfection, it is easy for laser technicians to introduce these types of laser treatments to clients who want to see phenomenal anti aging results.

There are many different types of laser technician salary depending on where you work, but offering a variety of cosmetic laser treatments can benefit you financially! Services like MicroLaserPeel skin rejuvenation and eMatrix skin tightening can cost anywhere from $400 – $800 per treatment. Other laser treatments show better results as a series treatment, like laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal, and IPL photofacials. These can cost anywhere from $100 – $200 per treatment, but a client may need between 8 – 12 to see dramatic results.

Before you offer these treatments, you’re going to need laser training. There are different regulations in each state, but the bottom line is that you MUST have proper training in order to perform cosmetic lasers.
