The difference between all the laser courses

What is the difference between all the laser courses?

I am new to the industry and I don’t know where to start, your website has so many courses! Which one(s) do I need?

Awesome question!

If you are new into the industry and wanting to get into laser/IPL the most common way for our students is to do the beginner and advanced courses together, which covers you from A-Z, that being safety, Australian standards, insurance and all treatment theory.

The beginner course a.k.a. Laser Safety Course will ALWAYS be where you start, think of it as the base and the necessary certificate to move forward. This one will help you understand the science of light, laser and IPL systems, national and state standards and regulation, how light interacts with the skin and hair and the key safety issues you need to be across before you do treatments. This one covers the minimum certification required by the Australian Standards and to help get insurance coverage. 

Once you have your base and understanding about the device and safety protocols, you then move onto learning about how to do the treatments. You can learn about all of them, or just choose some of them.

The advanced course is specific to the common types of things you would be treating including what wavelengths/laser or IPL to use, how to prepare the client, what to look out for, how to determine what and how you'll treat and post care arrangements. It covers hair reduction, vascular conditions, pigmentation disorders, resurfacing and rejuvenation, tattoo removal and PDT. It has information on preventing and managing adverse events.

If you are wanting a specific treatment only, you can do a course specialising in one treatment, we have combined the laser safety certificate with the most popular treatments, they are hair reduction and tattoo removal.

We also offer single courses in skin rejuvenation, vascular conditions, and pigmentation, for any of these single modules you need the beginner as your base, laser safety, always safety first, then you add the module for treatment 😊

We are here to answer all your questions and would love to help you get started, contact us anytime for more information.
