It’s very important to do your research before attending a medical aesthetic school so you don’t end up wasting money in a learning environment that isn’t up to par with your and your state’s standards. Over the years we’ve heard many complaints when it comes to medical aesthetic schools, which is why putting a list together may help you choose the absolute best one.
1. Little to no hands-on training
Receiving hands-on training is vital when learning a new skill set, especially when you’re going to be performing cosmetic laser treatments on clients. After all, you can’t be expected to hit home runs if you’ve never even picked up a bat! Practice makes perfect, which is why you need a laser training school that will give you those hands-on clinical hours you need as a new laser technician.
2. Accreditations and regulations
Many people have attended laser schools that are just after the money. Some of these schools don’t follow state regulations and do not have proper accreditations. If you fall victim to these scams, you not only waste your time and money but all of that training you received can’t be counted. This is why it’s very important to attend a medical aesthetics school that will meet the required clinical hours your state requires while maintaining proper accreditations.
3. Instructors and learning environment
Have you ever had a bad teacher who just wasn’t passionate about teaching a subject? No matter how much hands-on time you get, you’re still going to need an expert who’s passionate about the subject to give you the best knowledge possible. This is why it’s important to attend a medical aesthetics school that has experts in the field teaching the subjects they’re passionate about in the right learning environment.
