Lasers are the number one area where physicians and nurses overspend because they don't know the business. It is critical that you understand what each laser can do, and more importantly, what it cannot do. Sales people tend to take advantage of naive medical professionals. Beware of the education that comes from them! This course will include an introduction to the concept of medical lasers including working with them safely, broadband light (BBL), Nd:YAG, diode hair removal, radio frequency skin tightening, resurfacing lasers and microdermabrasion.

Students will learn how to differentiate between skin types, assess needs, set treatment parameters, determine phases of hair growth, and how to present treatment outcomes to your clients while maintaining safety standards.

This course will provide you with so much practical information about what lasers are and how they can fit into your Medical Aesthetics practice!
