Laser Training

Unwanted body hair can be itchy, embarrassing, and difficult to tame.

This is just one of the reasons that permanent hair removal has caught on all over the United States.

State License Requirements

To become a professional laser technologist in Tennessee, you should complete a course or program that is recognized by the National Council on Laser Certification (NCLC) to qualify for work in this state. Although there is not an official license for laser techs in TN, doctors will want to know you are trained and registered to feel confident you can deliver quality care to patients.

Education Details

To work independently with a laser, you must be completely aware of the safety precautions and risks that come with this technology. For that reason, you may spend some time in the classroom studying theory and learning how lasers work. However, you’ll spend much more time gaining practical experience and getting comfortable using a laser. In addition, you may get to watch your instructors perform laser hair removal and assess the work of your peers.

Job Outlook Increase
Between 2012 - 2022

Tennessee has an extremely positive job outlook for skin care specialists, which may be helpful to you when you start working as a laser technician. A 47% increase in jobs is expected to occur between 2015 and 2022 (O*Net, 2012). Skin care specialists in Tennessee earn an average of $33,900 per year (O*Net, 2015).

Working as a Laser Technician

As laser technology has become an increasingly popular part of the beauty industry in Tennessee, more and more salons and spas have started to offer this service. This means that you may enjoy a number of employment options when you graduate. However, if traditional employment isn't quite your speed, laser technology is a great field for self-employment. It can be especially profitable if you have business experience or a network of beauty contacts.
