The beauty industry has changed a lot in recent decades, which means there are tons of specialties and career paths that have been created to meet customers' needs and requests. This industry may continue evolving over coming years, giving you even more career opportunities to consider. The field of laser technology is a popular option, considering the growing popularity of permanent hair removal procedures. However, you do need to meet specific education and licensing requirements before you start.

State License Requirements

Currently, New Jersey has some of the strictest laser hair removal licensing requirements in the country. The New Jersey State Board of Medical Examiners does not allow anyone besides a medical doctor to perform this procedure. This prevents estheticians, laser technicians, and other non-medical professionals from offering this service. However, laser hair removal training may still be worth your time. If you live near the New Jersey border, you may be able to work in a neighboring state. Additionally, licensing requirements for laser hair removal are being assessed all over the country. You never know if or when New Jersey may decide to loosen its restrictions.

Education Details

Learning about laser hair removal is a huge part of succeeding in this industry. Schools differ quite a bit in terms of how much education may require and which courses they offer.

To find a school that provides comprehensive training, look for a curriculum that includes the following topics:

  • Hair biology
  • Lasers for hair removal
  • Client selection
  • Sterilization and sanitation
  • Preparation for procedures
  • Specific laser usage
  • Theory of laser hair removal

NJ laser hair removal schools should also require plenty of hands-on practice. Theoretical knowledge can't help you in a beauty career unless you can also develop the hands-on skills.
