Laser Safety Training

Laser Safety Training is one of the most important factors involved in the laser training process.  One of the biggest reasons why laser training schools have been developed is to teach laser safety.  When observing a laser procedure, to many it seems like a very simple treatment to perform--just point and shoot--unfortunately there are many factors involved in the laser process that allow experienced technicians to deliver safe, effective treatments that get clients positive results.

The number one concern when discussing Laser Safety Training is laser-skin interaction.  Non-invasive aesthetic lasers work on the theory of selective photothermolysis.  This means that the laser light is attracted to pigment.  For laser hair removal procedures, the laser is attracted to the pigment in the hair follicles, for brown spot/age spot removal the laser is attracted to the pigment within the skin.  For vein removal, the laser is attracted to the pigment in the veins. It is important to know that while hair, spots and veins all contain pigment, your skin contains pigment as well.  The melanin or pigment in your skin is what gives it its color.  In order for any of these treatments to be effective, there must be a difference between the pigment in your skin and the pigment in the ailment you are treating.  If the laser parameters are set incorrectly, the laser energy could not only effect the treated ailment, but it could affect the skin as well.

Improper use of the laser can result in several side effects including burning, hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation.  Hyper- and hypo-pigmentation fortunately are not permanent, but bad burns could lead to scarring or even infection.  This is why we believe that Laser Safety Training is so important.  There are more to aesthetic treatments than just pointing and shooting a laser; interested individuals can learn about all of this and more at any one of our laser training programs.  For more information, contact any of our reputable centers today.
