A cosmetic laser technician is a certified esthetician who often works in a medical spa under a medical practitioner’s supervision after undergoing preparation to use a cosmetic laser for various skin care applications. Technicians also work in medical clinics and doctor’s offices.

Cosmetic laser technicians are skincare professionals who focus on delivering laser treatments throughout their professions. At IMAj Institute in Scottsdale, treatments include removing and eliminating scars, age spots, and unwanted freckles. Our specialists also deliver similar skin therapies, such as toning, skin resurfacing, and laser therapy. Each one of our technicians is a specialist in laser procedure and safety.

A cosmetic laser technician’s tasks may include determining a customer’s skin care needs and consulting with their supervisors to create an outstanding treatment course and administer a laser therapy.

Training Programs and Education for Cosmetic Technicians

Since laser treatment for cosmetic purposes is a new and emerging career, training opportunities at private schools stress safety and functionality. Also, some hospitals and medical centers are now giving their nurses instructions on beauty laser devices. A few community colleges offer degree programs for cosmetic care medical aestheticians that require courses in laser training. Few can compare with the hands-on training and classroom teaching expertly used at IMAj Institute.

Skills Required for Laser Cosmetic Technicians

Laser therapy is used by a cosmetic laser technician to remove body hair, smooth skin, erase scars, reduce wrinkles, and execute other procedures. As a licensed practitioner, technicians can meet with clients to ascertain their skincare problems, consult with a supervising physician to determine the most appropriate treatment method, and then administer the recommended laser treatment.

Cosmetic students are taught to be excellent technicians, trained to use all therapy techniques to safely change their client’s skin and features, and understand their true desires in any course of treatment.

Technicians can build a good relationship with their clients by taking the time to listen carefully, and then offer treatments, recommending the best options for any of their skin-related issues.

Most clients consider cosmetic laser treatments because they want to make a positive change to their appearance. Technicians can help change their client’s outlook and even their lives by understanding their desires and providing the very treatments that often support substantial improvements to their skin and body shapes.

What other Popular Treatments do Technicians Provide?

While the most popular laser treatment is body hair removal, other therapies include facial tightening, reducing wrinkles and fine lines, cellulite reduction, age spot and dark circle removal, and varicose vein removal.

Also, increasing popularity is tattoo removal, where the IMAj Institute excels explicitly due to the invention of new laser techniques and machines designed by Gary Begley. Begley is not only an inventor and patent holder; he is also President of IMAj Institute and Board Chair of the Arizona State Board of Cosmetology.

His innovative designs have greatly enhanced his cosmetic lasers’ accuracy and efficiency and reduced treatment and healing time.
