Job Outlook Increase
Between 2012 - 2022

The beauty industry is growing all over the United States, and a big part of that growth comes from skin care specialists like laser technicians. Between 2012 and 2022, job openings for Arizona skin care specialists may increase 45% (O*Net, 2016). Skin specialists report an average salary of $32,100 per year in Arizona (O*Net, 2016). As you prepare for your career, you have to decide which employment path you would like to follow. Some laser technicians go into business for themselves, renting a room or salon space to provide services. Others become conventionally employed at spas, salons, and hair removal clinics. These are both viable options—you simply have to decide whether or not you are business-minded and if you are able and willing to market yourself.

Working as a Laser Technician

Arizona hair removal and skin care technicians have plenty of job options. A technician can work independently, work in salons, or work in healthcare facilities. There is an optimistic job outlook for Arizona hair removal and skincare technicians. Men and women in Arizona care about maintaining their physical appearance, and hair removal and skincare technicians help them accomplish that.
