The Level 4 Laser Course may be the one to help get your career in laser therapy started. 

Answering why, how, and what next?

With IPL, the skin no longer needs to be subjected to disguised tortures like waxing and epilators or the latest miracle cream. 

Most of these creams can reprogram your skin but fail to do what they promise on the packet. 

Instead, there are many options to help clients, thanks to the latest technology. For example, laser hair removal is an industry that is set to increase by replacing outdated waxing and shaving regimes. 

In addition, laser hair removal offers a permanent solution which means when hair is gone with laser treatment, it is gone for good.

No more factoring in a leg shave or waxing into your routine for going out on those special occasions. With just a few treatments with laser and zap, the unwanted hair is on its way out.

Laser skin rejuvenation is great in cosmetic treatments with visible results that will give your clients confidence to achieve blemish-free skin.

How to get started?

There must be some faster, easy way to get insured and out there taking your share of the beauty laser market?

As of mid-late 2018, laser therapy has started to become very regulated, and many laser technicians’ qualifications are being brought into question. 

This is due to many salons and laser technicians practising their craft but not to a safe standard. This has led to cases of burns and incidents with clients due to inadequate training for the beautician.

With that comes the need for appropriate training and a need for a good quality provider of this training. Aesthetic Beauty Training Academy offer this training in the form of the Level 4 Laser & IPL. 

The Level 4 Laser course is geared as a course for the beginner introducing you to the world of laser hair removal and laser skin rejuvenation.

This includes some advice on employment or opening your own business. When completing the training course, you will leave knowing your trade and the route into Laser Therapy.
