Newly Divorced and Seeking a New Career?

new career after divorce

Although divorce is often associated with sadness, it’s also often a time of renewal. People coming out of a divorce are more apt to explore new paths in their lives–even new careers. But if going back to school for years on end isn’t your cup of tea, we have great news for you. You’re capable of entering a new, thriving, and successful industry in as little as two weeks of training.

The cosmetic laser industry has been widely successful over the last decade. Treatments like laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal, and laser skin rejuvenation have been received by millions–including Hollywood celebrities. Most states allow those who have earned a high school diploma or GED to enroll in cosmetic laser training. So if you’re interested in a new career where you’re able to help people look and feel their best, then this might be for you!

People who often come out of a divorce want to be surrounded by positivity. But that’s just what this field has to offer. Your clients come to you to help rid their cosmetic skin care problems. In return, you’re able to give them that boost of confidence they need when they look in the mirror. It’s a very rewarding career! In fact, many laser technicians establish a great rapport with clients and always look forward to getting caught up when they return.

We know what you’re thinking. But how much will I make? Laser treatments can cost anywhere from $50 to $800+. This depends on a number of factors: the size of the area being treated, the type of laser, etc. In many cases, clients will need a recurring treatment plan to see ideal results. For example, if you charge someone $200 for laser hair removal and they need 10 treatments to see ideal results, that’s $2,000 you make off of just one client.

Laser training only takes two weeks, as we mentioned before. National Laser Institute’s hands-on comprehensive laser training program trains future laser technicians in a variety of in-demand laser treatments. These include laser hair removal, IPL photofacial skin rejuvenation, laser tattoo removal, radiofrequency skin tightening, laser skin rejuvenation, laser acne reduction, and many more. This course is led by leading laser experts who teach you all about laser safety, the Fitzpatrick scale, laser techniques, and more.

At the end of this comprehensive laser training course, you will have the knowledge and skills you need toward understanding the world of cosmetic lasers. National Laser Institute is the leading cosmetic laser school in the nation and has been around for the last decade. They have trained countless attendees from across the globe.
