Certified Laser and IPL Treatments Course

Now is the best time to study a laser and IPL treatments course! The Advanced Aesthetics field is growing in popularity each year as technology advances. Client’s are looking for long-lasting results with limited downtime. 

As a part of advanced aesthetic procedures, you will find Laser and IPL treatments. As of 2020, the laser hair removal industry estimates at £313 Million. Market research accredits this growth to the technological advancements in aesthetic laser. Laser treatments are not only used to treat hair removal but also for skin treatments. These laser treatments can help the skin by resurfacing to reveal the younger and brighter skin underneath. Clients can use laser rejuvenation to treat sunspots, wrinkles, and scars.

It is no surprise in the growth of popularity for pursuing laser and IPL treatments as a career. In this blog, we will talk you through everything you need to know about becoming a laser therapist!

What Are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?

  • The laser hair removal procedure is quick
  • When the client’s assigned treatment course has finished, results are long-lasting.
  • Not as uncomfortable as waxing!
  • Laser hair removal doesn’t leave ingrown hair or razor bumps like shaving.
  • Procedures are non-invasive, which ensures little to no down-time.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Skin Rejuvenation?

  • The clients will see an improvement in skin texture and tone.
  • Skin resurfacing reverses the effect of long-term sun damage.
  • After the treatments, the skin is tighter and firmer. 
  • The treatments don’t take long at all – clients can even get them done in their lunch breaks!
  • Again, these treatments are minimally invasive.

Now we’ve explained why laser treatments are an excellent choice for your clients. We can move on to who can train to become a laser technician.
