Q. What procedures do you offer training on?

A. We specialize in Laser Hair Removal Training as the vast majority of facilities you will work for do their highest percentage of business in Laser Hair Removal. We also offer certificate course on Intense Pulse Light Photorejuvenation (Photofacials), for treating age spots, sun damage, broken capillaries, redness reduction, acne, rosacea, hyper-pigmentation, skin tone & more on both the face, chest, hands and other body parts. We also train on Laser Vein Reduction, Cellulite & Body Contouring Reduction, Laser Tattoo Removal, Microcurrent and LED Technology as well as SilkPeel Dermalinfusion technologies, Advanced Chemical Peels and Microdermabrasion. We spend the greatest amount of our time on the most broadly used procedure, Laser Hair Removal. We want you to be the most proficient in the procedures you will be doing wherever you work. We offer certificate courses separately for all Modalities listed.

Q. Do I have to be an aesthetician or have any medical background to work with lasers?

A. Most states in the U.S. do not require any professional medical training or even an aesthetician’s license to perform some cosmetic laser procedures. California, New Jersey, Georgia, Ohio and Florida do have special requirements for laser certification. Please refer to your state for specific requirements. In Canada, no such licensure exists. Please check our pre-requisites in our curriculum on our courses for acceptance.

Q. How much money can a Laser Hair Removal Technician make?

A. Although laser hair removal is the most common procedure these days, the better-rounded you are in your skills, the more attractive you are to a prospective employer. Most clinics will want you to have some of your own ‘skin’ in the game, by paying a lower hourly rate with some sort of commission. We commonly see $12 to $20 per hour base pay with a 10% commission on your sales, which may include products.

Let us assume $15/hr base pay, a hair removal treatment cost of $150 each, a microdermabrasion/chemical exfoliation treatment cost of $100 each and an IPL skin rejuvenation treatment cost of $300 each.

Depending upon how busy the clinic is, it’s very possible for a single Laser Technician to perform 3 laser hair removal treatments per day, 3 microdermabrasion/chemical exfoliation treatments per day and 2 IPL skin rejuvenation treatments per day. With this assumption and the assumed prices per treatment, and the employee worked 5 days per week, and an 8 hour work day, it would all add up to this:

Sales of hair removal treatments per month
$9,000
Sales of microdermabrasion/chemical exfoliation treatments per month
$6,000
Sales of skin rejuvenation treatments per month
$12,000
Total sales per month
$27,000
Commission of 10%
$2,700
Monthly salary of $15/hour
$2,400
Total salary per month
$5,100
Total gross wages per year
$61,200

Q.Do you offer job placement?

We receive inquiries from locations across surrounding areas seeking individuals with laser experience. As they come in, we distribute these to you. We will do anything in our power to assist you in your job search or help you acquire the tools and information you need to start your own business. While no training clinic in the country can “guarantee” you a job, we are confident our reputation speaks for itself. Our open door policy ensures you are never left without support and encouragement post certification.

Laser Spa Group also works closely with Clarion Medical Technologies and other high profile Laser Companies to bring students and esthetic professionals the highest quality lasers for practicing in training and for laser rentals once the course has been completed. Clarion Medical is a medical distributor of innovative technology solutions. Clarion has been operating in Canada since 1989. Over that time, they have gained a superior reputation for their dedication to the Canadian healthcare community (hospitals and clinics) within the aesthetic, ophthalmic and surgical marketplaces. The LightSheer Diode Laser, distributed by Clarion Medical, is still the gold standard in laser hair removal and the #1 selling hair removal technology in Canada. Clarion will distribute to us, any opening at clinics and doctor’s offices as they become available that are looking for well trained laser technicians that have been trained by us.

 What kind of equipment do you train on?

The best of the best! Clarion Medical Technologies, Lumenis, Sciton, Solta Medical and Silhouete-Tone. Bottom line, we utilize the most reputable, fastest growing and most widely recognized manufacturers in laser/IPL in the country at facility. In addition, we are continuously bringing in a variety of other manufacturers equipment. We believe it is imperative to avoid training on lesser known, smaller company’s equipment. Far more important than the equipment you train on is the skill sets you learn with regards to techniques and safety protocols. In your “laser lifetime” you will most likely use a variety of equipment and its quite simple to shift from one to the next, the key to success is your foundation of knowledge you learn that can be applied universally to all types of equipment. There are many different quality brands of equipment, and that is important but knowledge is the true power.

Do you get a guarantee for hands-on training?

Hands-on laser training is one of the most important criteria you should be evaluating when considering which laser course to attend. Laser Spa Group is widely-regarded as the leader in offering the most hands-on training of any laser course. Our belief is that hours upon hours of classroom training, unless combined with real, practical experience with the laser, is not sufficient for students to go into the clinic with.

We believe in training you to become the very best technicians and to do so we provide a structured, focused learning environment. The Cone Of Learning as described below indicates the retention when simulating the real experience and actually doing the real thing, as in working and practicing in a real medical spa with a real life experience on laser equipment. We go over with you in real time giving your client the proper consultation, laser safety instructions, to performing the treatments, to documenting their charts and giving post treatment instructions. Everything you would be doing in the clinic you will be working in.
