The top nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments include Botox, dermal fillers, laser hair removal, and more. The cosmetic laser industry has been booming over the past decade, especially since many cosmetic lasers on the market are safe, effective, FDA approved, and show outstanding results. More and more people have been seeking out cosmetic laser treatments, whether it’s for hair removal, tattoo removal, stretch marks, wrinkles, facial impurities, or more. Cosmetic lasers have advanced so much that they are able to treat many of the most common skin concerns.
What most people don’t know is that laser training, in many states, only takes a few weeks. Not months–weeks–to become officially certified. Cosmetic laser training includes learning in depth about the skin and how it reacts to cosmetic lasers, and how to perform many of the top laser treatments offered in medical spas today. The best time to achieve laser training, though, is in the summer. Think about it: the kids are out of school at summer camps or other activities, and by fall you could be working with your own clientele!
Qualifications and State Regulations
In order to qualify to become a laser technician, you must have a high school diploma or GED. There are some states where only medical professionals can attend a laser training course, so be sure and check your states regulations. For more about regulations, you can call 800.982.6817.
