Mississippi

When hair removal first became popular, options were limited to shaving and eventually waxing. Now, you never have to worry about razors again if you are willing to go through permanent hair removal.

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular procedures in Mississippi, since it’s highly trusted and established.

State License Requirements

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.

Education Details

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.

Working as a Laser Technician

When you finish your training, you can start looking for laser technician jobs in Mississippi. Of course, both spas and salons employ laser technicians.

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.
