Laser/IPL Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal Technician Training

Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the United States. Laser is actually an acronym that stands for “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.” IPL is also commonly used for this type of hair removal treatment and stands for “Intense Pulsed Light.” Laser/IPL treatments are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, chin, back, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas by beaming beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light that destroys the hair.

As a certified laser hair removal technician, you can service all ages and genders to achieve a smoother hairless skin. Laser Hair Removal treatments take 15 to 45 minutes per service, depending on the area or areas treated. Laser sessions range from $50 to $250+ per area, and typically clients need multiple sessions to achieve the best results. Overall, this laser hair removal training course will prepare students to move forward in their careers as laser hair removal technicians.
