Why do I need laser and IPL training?

The answer is quite simple – if you do not understand the basics of the physics of light and the interaction it has with skin and hair, how can you expect to be a best practice therapist.

Whether you are a nurse, a doctor, a sole practitioner, working from a home-based salon or someone wanting to make informed decisions on the purchase of equipment, if you do not understand the basics, you are starting with a disadvantage with your peers.

As a practicing laser therapist since 2004, I have had the privilege of witnessing the growth of this amazing treatment protocol. Unfortunately, I have also seen the damage and poor results that inexperienced and poorly trained therapists can inflict.

Even in states where there is no legislation covering the delivery of laser and light therapies, insurers are now requiring evidence of training and your risk mitigation plan.

So here’s a quiz of just a few questions you need to ask.  Answer any of the questions with an “I don’t know” and you may not be providing your clients with safe, effective treatments!
