Before becoming a laser technician in Illinois, you should go through a comprehensive training program that gives you lots of hands-on experience with laser equipment. This is considered a medical procedure, so you must be under the direct supervision of a physician while working. There are no specific licensing requirements, since some places provide on-site training to employees. A thorough laser training program can give you the skills you need to work with high-end equipment.

Education Details

The most important part of studying laser technology is learning how to use a laser. It is a very precise skill, as you have to use a laser to stop growth at the base of each hair follicle. By the time you complete your weeks or months of training, you should plan on getting lots of practical experience.

Hands-on practice is the best thing you can do for your career. You should have very strong laser skills when you complete your education, but it takes dozens of clients for you to really perfect your technique. The more quickly you gain practical experience, the more you can develop your reputation as a skilled laser technician in your community.
