Laser Training

The key to succeeding in the beauty industry is always providing high-quality service, keeping up with trends, and adapting to new techniques and procedures. It doesn't matter if you are just starting to look for options in this field or if you are a successful beauty professional who is ready to keep growing and learning.

If you want to work in one of the fastest growing beauty specialties in the country, laser training programs in Georgia may have exactly what you need.

State License Requirements

Georgia recently changed the licensing process for laser technicians. As a result, there are two laser technician certifications. To become a senior laser practitioner, you must have three or more years of licensure as a medical practitioner (Georgia Medical Composite Board). To become an assistant laser practitioner, you must have been licensed as a doctor at one time or be currently licensed as a physician's assistant, licensed practical nurse, registered nurse, esthetician, or master cosmetologist.

Education Details

Since this specialty utilizes such advanced technology, training expectations are rigorous. To thoroughly prepare for a laser technician career, look for GA laser hair removal schools that include coursework on these topics: Laser concepts and principles Hair and skin anatomy Contraindications for laser hair removal Hair growth phases Energy concepts Pulsing with a laser Laser operation modes and phases Tissue reactions—typical and adverse Safe laser use and storage Endpoints of care It is important to grasp the theory of laser hair removal, but it is just as important to know how to properly use a laser for hair removal. For that reason, you may wish to select a school that prioritizes practical experience and hands-on learning.

Job Outlook Increase
Between 2012 - 2022

The beauty industry is growing in Georgia, especially with beauty hubs like Savannah and Augusta. This may benefit you as you start looking for jobs. O*Net predicts a 38% increase in skin care specialist jobs between 2012 and 2022 in Georgia (2016). Their statistics indicate that GA laser technicians and other skin care professionals earn an average income of $23,400 per year (O*Net, 2016). You may get started in laser therapy in any location that has spas, salons, and medical spas. However, since this is a fairly new beauty procedure, you may find that demand is highest in urban areas. Focusing your job search on large cities may help you find a job more quickly.

Working as a Laser Technician

From the purely cosmetic to the serious medical, the job options for the Georgia hair removal and skin care technician are wide ranging. A technician may work in a salon assisting with make up, waxing, and other skincare services. A technician may work in a medical facility evaluating skincare conditions and recommending care. A technician may also work for himself. Jobs for Georgia hair removal and skin care technicians are growing in number, making for an auspicious job outlook.
