Lasers are used in some of the most popular cosmetic treatments; from skin tightening to facial rejuvenation, lasers of varying strengths and intensities are used to accomplish a wide range of aesthetic outcomes. Among the most common uses of this technology in aesthetic procedures is laser hair removal, which can target the pigment in hair to damage the follicle. This kind of hair removal has grown to be the new favorite as it can achieve permanent results with a series of treatments.

How do I get started with laser hair removal?


Laser hair removal is one of the most exciting cosmetic treatments; there are a surplus of clients that have a need for this service, most of whom express their gratitude for a job well-done. With this in mind, it is no surprise that the demand for laser hair removal specialists is high, with a number of training courses available. In order to get started with laser hair removal, you must:

Get Certified — Having a Laser/IPL Safety Certificate is the first essential step to opening your own business as well as operating the machine safely.

Get Organized — After receiving all of the necessary certifications and licensing, you must get setup with insurance and other business prerequisites, such as setting up a bank account for your business.

Choose the Equipment — Once you are legally set up to go, it is time to decide what machine is the best to invest in. It is important to choose wisely as these machines cost tens of thousands of dollars; it is better to find a quality and trusted brand name and buy new than to find a deal only for it to break down or cause worse problems that could leave you liable.

Set Up Your Space — This next step is where personal creativity can really shine! Now that all of the tedious legalities are taken care of, it is time to design your working space, which can set the mood and atmosphere of the practice. Some things you will need include goggles (for yourself and your clients), a laser/IPL safety door sign, block out curtains, good lighting, a sink, a bed and the appropriate covers, consultation forms, an EFT machine and float for your hard-earned cash.

Prepare Your Pricing — Now that you have everything set up and ready to go, you have to determine how much you will charge for your service. Spend a day looking around your local area, pick up price lists, talk to staff and get a feel for the prices in and around your neighborhood.

Maximize Your Marketing — While there is no need to go all fancy, you will have to market your business; opening the doors is not enough to guarantee success.

Topics of study include laser devices, laser safety, physics, regulatory guidelines, hair removal, tattoo removal, and collagen rejuvenation.
