Laser Technician Training


If you want to become a certified laser technician, it’s important that you spend a lot of time thinking about the training process. Obviously, in most states, you will need to become certified by attending a special course. However, you need to remember that not all of these courses are “created equal.”

Getting certified shows both clients and potential employers that you are a serious, trained professional who is properly licensed to operate the relevant laser equipment. You should also know that everyone who wants to perform this job must undergo some form of training, whether they are an aesthetician or a practicing dermatologist. In fact, many professionals already operating in the industry see laser tech training as a great way to expand their careers!

Though hair removal is probably the most common form of laser treatment, technicians can also learn how to perform the following services:

  • Stretch mark reduction
  • Photo facial skin rejuvenation
  • Tattoo Removal
  • Acne and Acne scar reduction
  • Radiofrequency skin tightening

Due to dramatic improvements in cosmetic technology, laser treatments are more in-demand than ever before. In fact, photorejuvenation and laser hair removal are among the top non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the United States! As if that wasn’t enticing enough, the medical esthetics industry is currently estimated to be worth over $15 billion a year! All of that taken into account, it’s not difficult to see why so many people are investing in laser tech training.

Understanding How Lasers Work

Lasers might seem like fantastic futuristic devices, but they have actually been around for decades and are perfectly harmless when used properly. The specialized lasers used in cosmetic treatments harness high-intensity light energy in order to resurface the skin. This energy is extremely precise and concentrated, which allows the technician to target damaged skin cells while preserving the healthy cells around them. They are also known to stimulate collagen growth, which can help renew and rejuvenate the skin.

All in all, cosmetic lasers can be used to change skin tone and texture, erase fine lines, remove hair, eradicate unwanted birthmarks, and treat spider veins.

That said, their potential is being evaluated and re-evaluated all the time, and that’s just part of what makes working as a laser technician such an exciting career choice.

Aging and Laser Treatments

Being the subject of some of the most intense research and investments in the world, the anti-aging industry is currently worth tens of billions of dollars. At the forefront of much of this research is laser technology. You see, the production of collagen tends to decrease the older we get, consequently leading to those fine lines, wrinkles, and other troublesome signs of aging.

Utilizing laser resurfacing treatments, we can stimulate the production of new collagen, reducing the appearance of those lines and wrinkles essentially creating a more vibrant youthful look. Moreover, laster treatments have also been shown to target and reduce pigmentation issues in the skin, for example, melasma, red spots, and brown areas that can also be associated with aging. As if that wasn’t enough, patients of all ages can see massive improvements in conditions ranging from vitiligo and eczema to acne and psoriasis.

In short: we’ve only scratched the surface of what can be done with cosmetic lasers. This means it’s highly likely that the industry will continue to grow by leaps and bounds for years to come.
