Becoming a Laser Therapist, What Will You Learn in your Laseraid Training?

Whether you are already a beauty therapist or new to the industry entirely, the Laseraid training program has you covered. With tailored content to accommodate your level of expertise, our team of industry leading trainers will work to get you up to speed fast with industry technology, terminology and techniques.

So, what will your Laser Hair Removal (LHR) course cover?

We believe that to become an exceptional laser therapist you need to master 3 pillars:

  1. Theoretical Comprehension
  2. Confident Consultation Skills
  3. Technique Proficiency

Here is how you will achieve this with Laseraid…

 

Theoretic Comprehension

Education is everything in the beauty industry. The very best technicians have a well-rounded understanding of laser physics, skin anatomy, hair growth cycles, skin typing, safety hazards and client contraindications. To achieve this level of proficiency, you will work closely with our trainers to master the following content points:

  • Laser Safety
  • Laser Physics
  • Wavelengths
  • Properties of Different Lasers
  • Laser Light and Tissue Interaction
  • Laser Controls – energy, pulse duration, spot sizes etc.
  • Skin Anatomy
  • Skin and Hair Colour Analysis
  • Skin Typing Diagnosis
  • Hair Growth Cycles
  • Types of Hair
  • Client Contraindications
  • Treatment Steps and Procedures
  • Potential Side Effects and Management

You will walk away from the day with a firm comprehension of these theoretical fundamentals, providing you with the tools you need to enact industry best practises and provide market leading treatment outcomes for your clients.

So, you know what a laser is, you know the anatomy of skin and hair, you know safety and best practises, now we can move on to the fun stuff! Interacting with clients!

Confident Consultation Skills

Speaking confidently and professionally with your clients is what separates trained laser technicians for others. Being able to thoroughly explain the treatment process, cover off any questions and concerns your clients may have and accurately detecting suitable candidates is crucial.

During your consultations training you will learn how to provide a snappy and engaging summary to your clients to depict the concept of LHR. This initial interaction with your client will provide them with a realistic set of expectations for their treatment results and also demonstrate that you have an experienced and educated understanding of the treatment.

Once you have mastered this technique you will now move on to health and contraindications questions. There are various contraindications for the treatment of LHR which need to be accurately diagnosed before you provide any treatments to clients. Certain medications, external environmental factors and personal health components can prevent someone from being an eligible candidate for LHR. Capturing this information is essential for your waiver of liability and the health of your client.

Now we move on to skin type diagnosis, which is one of the most crucial skill sets a trained therapist can acquire. Skin type diagnosis requires a complex analysis of observable characteristics as well as an investigation into tanning/sun habits, ethnicity, and skin responses to various stimuli.

To finalise your consultations training you will learn both pre and post care requirements to ensure your clients are adequately prepared for their sessions and also responsibly preventing any post care side effects.

Detailed documentation will be provided to assist you with your liability waiver, skin type questions, contraindications analysis and pre and post care requirements.

In summary, you will confidently master the following skill sets during your consultation training:

  • Treatment Run Through and Explanation
  • Contra-indications Analysis
  • Skin Typing Diagnosis in Action
  • Pre-Care Requirements
  • After Care Advice
  • Documentation

 

Technique Proficiency

At Laseraid, we strongly believe that to cement the theoretical knowledge you have acquired it is imperative that you work one on one with our trainers to practically apply this theory to real life models. With access to the best LHR platforms on the marketing including Cynosure, Candela and Lumenis our trainers will work closely with you to cover the following topics:

  • Treatment Procedure
  • Equipment Inspection, Preparation, and Maintenance
  • Treatment Guidelines and Laser Settings
  • Client Preparation
  • Test Patching
  • Clinical End Point

These skills will ensure you are up to date with industry current techniques using the best devices the market has to offer. This allows you to step into any clinic or set up your own clinic with the practical tools to apply to any laser device.
