BRIEF OVERVIEW

Although many types of lasers are used in the beauty and medical aesthetic industry, along with pulsed light devices commonly called IPL or intense pulsed light; there are very few regulations to control who can use these devices on the public. Incorrect use of lasers and IPL can cause nasty burns, accidentally remove skin cancers and early melanoma warning signs as well as damage your natural skin colouring. Hair removal may seem like an easy treatment however in the wrong hands your treatment can leave you with unsightly patches of mottled skin, burns, scarring and worse still, all the hair could simply grow back again like it’s never been treated due to low powered and inferior technology that is readily available on the internet. There are hundreds of ways IPL and Lasers can improve your skin however learning this technology properly required thorough training and practice under supervision. It all starts with a solid education in the skin and an understanding of the science of lasers and how they work. This learning journey can take upwards of two years, NZ Laser Training can get you started on the technical topic of Laser / IPL after you have completed some beauty basics such as skin anatomy, and hygiene for beauty practices. Please talk to your closest beauty school for foundation learning and return to us when you are ready to move into the higher level learning topics of IPL and Laser.
