Laser Training

Hair removal is one of the most diverse specialties in the cosmetology industry. While some clients opt for home hair removal methods, a growing number of people are relying on beauty professionals for services like waxing and laser hair removal. Laser hair removal has become much more affordable in recent years, making it a viable option for a growing customer base. By attending laser training programs in OK, you can master this skill and begin making a name for yourself the cosmetology industry.

There are certain traits we can help you with to succeed as a laser technician. First, you should have excellent focus. This service often requires you to focus on small areas of skin for extended periods of time. Furthermore, you should be able to make people feel comfortable and safe, since laser hair removal is an uncomfortable situation for many people.

State License Requirements

You may have additional training requirements when you begin working. The Oklahoma Medical Board requires all laser facilities to have a medical director that supervises laser technicians. The medical director may or may not be on-site during procedures, so they require you to be extremely experienced. You may train with another laser technician before working on your own. When the medical director observes you and verifies your skill level, they may allow you to begin working with on-site or off-site supervision.

Education Details

The first step in your chosen beauty specialty is getting some training and hands-on experience behind you.

As a student at one of Oklahoma’s laser training programs, you may spend your classroom time learning about the following topics:

  • Skin anatomy and pathophysiology
  • Skin aging process
  • Laser physics
  • Laser equipment safety
  • Laser controlled areas
  • Safety eyewear
  • Laser incidents
  • Laser hair removal
  • Reactions and treatment times
  • Phases of hair growth
  • Types of laser
  • Laser operation standards

Once you have completed the theory portion of your education, it’s time to apply that knowledge to real laser hair removal procedures. From observation and participation to independent work, you should spend lots of time working with clients as a student.

Oklahoma nurses, estheticians, and other practitioners in related fields, often pursue laser tech training to expand their qualifications and opportunities. This can be a good idea; however, you should seek training that is recognized by the National Council on Laser Certification (NCLC). This organization helps ensure professionals deliver quality care to patients. This also helps medical directors gauge your qualifications for employment. If you register with the NCLC, you will need to renew every three years by submitting this application, plus a $95 fee.
