laser training classes

In order to become fully certified as a Laser Hair Removal Technician, the Texas Department of Licensing and Registration requires a 40 hour classroom session, plus a hands-on component requiring students to complete 100 laser hair removal treatments under the direction of a Senior Laser Hair Removal Technician or Certified Laser Hair Removal Professional (CLHRP).


Seminar Courses:



Vein Reduction/ Pigmented Lesion Removal/Laser Facial (8 Hours)



This seminar provides classroom theory and clinical hands-on practice with small vessel/telangiectasia reduction. Students will also learn laser facial techniques and isolated pigmented lesion removal. These procedures will enhance a spa/clinic’s ability to meet the demands of reversing the signs of aging.



Intense Pulse Light for PhotoFacial and Skin Tightening (8 Hours)



This seminar will teach students to perform Photo Rejuvenation and Skin Tightening treatments using the latest techniques in IPL. IPL theory, treatment endpoints and safety guidelines are just a few topics that will be addressed. Erasing the signs of sun damage is one of the leading treatments in the cosmetic laser industry.


Tattoo Removal (8 Hours)



Tattoo removal is one of the fastest growing desired treatments in the cosmetic laser industry. Students will learn the theory and technique using a Q-Switched laser for Tattoo Removal. This seminar will include Q-Switched photoacoustic theory, hands-on treatments and safety guidelines.


Body Contouring and Cellulite Reduction (8 Hours)



The Body Contouring and Cellulite Reduction seminar will focus on treatments to reduce cellulite and reshape body areas using the latest technology in body contouring. Students will be exposed to non-invasive cellulite reduction, treatment guidelines and hands-on treatments.


Fractional Skin Resurfacing (8 Hours)



This seminar will include theory, demonstration, and hands-on procedures using fractionated laser devices. Students will learn to use the latest laser equipment safely while offering an efficacious treatment. Use this knowledge to meet the demand of a growing anti-aging treatment market.


Aesthetic Injectables



These courses include in-depth education and hands-on injection training with the Botox and Dysport products, along with the latest Hyaluronic fillers. The courses are designed for students wishing to incorporate these services immediately into their new or existing business.


  • Botox/Dysport Course (8 hours)
  • Dermal Fillers Course (8 hours)

Microdermabrasion (4 Hours)



This seminar provides classroom theory and clinical hands-on practice. Microdermabrasion is a technique which consists of manual exfoliation of the skin's outer surface. The tip of the wand used in Microdermabrasion is made of natural diamond chips, which polish the skin and remove dead cells. The result is smooth, shiny and healthy looking skin. The natural diamond tip is new technology that is easier to control than prior methods and it doesn't irritate the skin. These procedures will enhance a spa/clinic’s ability to meet the demands of reversing the signs of aging.



Microneedling (SkinPen) (4 Hours)



This seminar will teach students to perform microneedling treatments that use multiple micro needles that vertically pierce the skin. This enhances rejuvenation results and is far safer for the client because there is much less epidermal damage. The automatic vibrating function of the Dermapen increases the effectiveness of treatment by increasing absorption of products, while reducing pain and discomfort.

 

Dermaplaning (4 Hours)



Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair . This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin. Students will learn the theory and technique that is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance.

 


Chemical Peels (4 Hours)



This seminar gives the foundation of chemical peels with an emphasis on: ingredients, strength, how they affect the skin, and anticipated results. This seminar also addresses how chemical peels are administered; what precautions must be taken; and contraindications are discussed as well. A greater emphasis on light peels, including Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) peels and Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) peels will be presented. There will also be a discussion of the skin, including anatomy, physiology, and skin conditions - as well as discussion regarding antioxidants and free radicals of the skin and body; and various vitamins, extracts, and chemical peel acids that can treat the skin.

 

Lash Lifting (5 hours)



A 1-day intensive class designed to help students become working Lash Lifting artists. A Lash Lift is the ‘curling’ of the eyelashes, achieved using a series of gentle treatments to attain a natural looking curl and lift of the lashes.

The key benefits are more prominent, curled and defined lashes. This treatment is an excellent alternative to the high maintenance that comes with lash extensions. This entry level class teaches all aspects of Lash Lifting, from profiling to drawing to touchups even completing the consent forms. Students will leave this class confident and eager to master their craft.



MicroBlading (16 hours)



MicroBlading is a form of tattooing. However, unlike a regular tattoo MicroBlading is a form of tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine. This allows you mimic realistic hair strokes creating a 3D illusion. It is also known under other names such as Eyebrow embroidery, Microstroking, FeatherTouch, Hair like strokes and more. Students will also cover proper sterilization and sanitation techniques required in this service.

Laser Hair Removal Theory & Practicum

To achieve the State of Texas Laser Hair Removal Technician Certification, one must fulfill 2 parts. First part is classroom training in which participants will receive 40 hours of theory training. The second part (Practicum) is the hands-on training where one must complete the required 100 laser hair removal treatments.


In addition to bestowing the most modern in health related aesthetic instruction, Avante Laser Training Institute is certified by the Texas Department of Licensing and Registration as a certification training institute for Laser Hair Removal candidates. The State of Texas put into law new legal guidelines in 2010 which requires each Laser Hair Removal provider to follow the specifications of Texas Administrative Code 289.302. This regulation determines specifications for radiation safety in the using of lasers and pulsed light devices for hair removal treatments. Specifically in Section 289.302 (i-j), the Texas Department of Licensing and Registration mandates certification for those individuals handling a laser hair removal equipment in Texas.

In order for any student taking any Avante Laser Training Institute class to be able to practice the skill learned, you must be aware of the following Texas State Medical Board Rulings governing the practices and classes we teach:

Registration and Radiation Safety Requirements for Lasers and Intense-Pulsed Light Devices

Nonsurgical Medical Cosmetic Procedures

These rulings state that in order to use a class 2 or higher device, you must either be or under the supervision of a medical doctor, nurse practitioner or a physician’s assistant to perform these practices.

We provide you with the state certification examination for technicians desiring to become Certified Laser Hair Removal Technicians. ALTI is proud to offer State approved CEUs for Laser Hair Removal Specialists who need to satisfy their 8 hour CEU obligation every two years. Please visit our online training website at http://avt.myonlinecampus.org/ to view a menu of web based ongoing education, and to register. New classes are being added throughout the year.
