State License Requirements
Required to earn a laser training license
Mississippi does not classify laser hair removal as a beauty procedure. It is considered a medical procedure, and so all laser technicians must work under the supervision of a physician. There are no specific training requirements in this field; you simply have to meet the expectations of your licensing physician. This may include on-the-job training or a laser training program at an approved institution.
To be an effective laser technician, you must know how this technology works and how you can use it on different parts of the body. That's why much of your training should focus on the theory of laser hair removal and the practical skills involved. Practice is very important.
License renewal period
Continuing education required
If you become registered with the NCLC, you will need to renew your license every three years. Just submit this application, along with a $95 fee to maintain in good standing.

This helps you get referrals and may bring clients back to you when they are ready to get laser hair removal on another part of their body.
