In Illinois, Medical Assistants can be delegated by a Physician to perform Laser and Injections!
Although Estheticians cannot operate laser in Illinois, we believe that every person practicing skin care needs to have an extensive knowledge of the technologies used in skin care and a medical setting. The laser class we offer for our students is provided by our partners and professionals in Laser technology: AAMP.
Academy’s relation to Dermatology, unique curriculum and advanced training build up our reputation of the best Skin Care and Spa school.
The 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 issues as needed. 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.
When used in the cosmetic industry lasers offer a wide range of treatments for nearly all skin types, and a variety of skin issues, including:
Wrinkles and age spots
Skin tone and texture
