Laser technicians are certified to perform cosmetic laser services and treatments which can include laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal, laser acne reduction, laser wrinkle reduction, and much more. Similar to dermatology, laser technicians are able to help improve a variety of client skin concerns through state-of-the-art laser technology.
Those who want to become a laser technician often do so because they receive a general satisfaction and happiness from helping clients become confident and comfortable within their beautiful skin. Laser technicians must know how to identify certain skin concerns and know the appropriate cosmetic laser treatment that will help them for their skin type.
The best part of becoming a laser technician is that cosmetic laser training doesn’t take a year or even a month. It just takes two whole weeks of your time to become certified!
To be clear: each state’s regulations will vary. Some state’s allow those with a high school diploma/GED to enroll in a laser technician certification program. Others only allow medical professionals to do so. Check with your state’s regulations before enrolling by calling 800.982.6817.
