State License Requirements
Nebraska has fairly relaxed laser technician standards. You do not need a specific beauty license to operate a laser during laser hair removal. This process is considered a medical procedure, so you need to work under the supervision of a doctor while working as a laser technician. The supervising doctor determines who can operate the laser and whether or not the physician must remain on-site during each procedure.
To become a laser technician, you have to learn how lasers are used to remove hair from every part of the body. You use a laser beam to direct heat at the base of a single hair follicle, which damages it to the point that growth slows or even stops. It's clear that this can be a time-consuming task, which is why so much practice is needed.
License renewal period
Continuing education required
After you complete your training and become registered, you will renew every three years by submitting this application, along with a $95 fee.
Nebraska Laser Training Careers
Average yearly salary for laser training in Nebraska
Nebraska's need for skin care specialists is on the rise, which benefits you as an aspiring laser technician. Between 2015 and 2022, the demand should swell by 32% (O*Net, 2012). The average salary in Nebraska is $32,800 per year, which is well above the national average (O*Net, 2015).
Flexibility is just as important in laser technology as it is in any other beauty specialty. To meet the needs of your clients, you may need to work evenings, weekends, and even the occasional holiday. If you choose a work setting like a dermatology office, you may have slightly more regular hours than if you choose to work at a salon or spa. When you begin your career, you may only have a few appointments per day. As you become more confident in your laser hair removal skills, you may speed up and be able to see more clients every day.
