Although Estheticians cannot operate laser in Illinois, we believe that every person practicing Skin Care needs to have an extensive knowledge on the technologies used in skin care and a medical setting.

LASER is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.  

Laser is one of today’s most popular and versatile beauty tools. These exciting beams of light energy come in many forms and provide doctors with both “cool” and “hot” options for improving or eliminating issue as needed.

Lasers are classified into four broad areas depending on the potential for causing biological damage.

When used in cosmetic industry it offers a wide range of treatments for nearly all skin types, and a variety of skin issues, including:

  • Wrinkles
  • Age Spots
  • Sun Damage
  • Acne
  • Redness
  • Unwanted Hair
  • Unwanted Tattoos
  • Skin Tone/Texture
  • Spider Veins

The beams of light energy can help eliminate wrinkles, acne scars, brown spots and other skin imperfections to reveal a more youthful, healthier complexion. They can also remove unwanted facial hair and tattoos.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal has been around for a number of years and still ranks as one of the most popular beauty treatments. The treatment takes minutes to perform and the results it offers last much longer than any other type of hair removal method.  The non-invasive lasers used in laser hair removal beam highly-concentrated light into the hair follicles. The pigment in the hair absorbs the light, which destroys the hair.

There are a number of devices available for laser hair removal, including YAG, diode and alexandrite lasers. A cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist may use one laser or a combination, depending on the skin type, the thickness and color of the hair, and the location of the area being treated.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

The lasers used in skin resurfacing are hardworking devices that use rapid pulses of high-intensity light to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin and stimulate collagen growth.  The procedure may magically improve the skin condition and make one look younger.  

There are two kinds of lasers that surgeons can choose from when performing the procedure: ablative and nonablative. Ablative lasers actually remove thin layers of skin, while the less-aggressive nonablative lasers penetrate the skin without breaking the surface. Within these two groups there are several types of lasers, including high-intensity carbon dioxide (CO2) and erbium lasers; medium-strength lasers such as the nonablative fractional laser, and lighter-strength lasers such as the diode nonablative fractional laser.

Laser class for our students is provided by our partners and professionals in Laser technology-AAMP.

We want our students to learn from the best! AMMP are laser distributors and train physicians to operate laser.  They come to our school with all the equipment to provide hands on training at our facility. Upon completion each student receives  Laser Certificate of Attendance from AAMP.

Because AAMP equips medical offices with lasers, they help our students stay abreast of all the new devices and trends. No dermatologist or plastic surgeon knows lasers better than people who train physicians on the subject. Instructors make sure that the students become familiar with the types of cosmetic laser treatments used in today’s’ market.

All lasers have the same concept and are easy to operate when you understand it.

During one day training our students learn variety of laser modalities, laser concepts, procedures at medical setting, indications, contraindications, skin types on Fitzpatrick scale and are able to apply it to the practices.

Everybody leaves the workshop with understanding how laser works, what procedures could be performed with the use of laser. The main focus of the class is on the hair removal techniques but Depigmentation,  Acne scars and condition reduction,  Laser peels, Skin tightening, Laser wrinkle reduction and Spider veins removal are targeted, as well.
