IPL & Laser Hair Removal

This 3 day course focuses on hair removal using IPL or laser. Evidence of previous Laser Safety is a prerequisite to this course, either from another training institute (a copy of your certificate will be needed to show completion) or having attended the IPL & Laser Training Academy.

Course cost: $1600.00 + GST per person.

This is a theory and practical based course, delivered in a precise and personal, non-judgmental way allowing for students to ask any questions they need.

Students gain an in-depth knowledge of the theory of light, wavelength, light interaction with tissue and selective photothermolysis. A detailed study of hair, colour, growth cycles, and causes for hair growth is discussed along with traditional and complimentary treatments available to the clinician. Expected results and treatment programs are also covered at length; Who is the ideal client?  What contraindications you should be aware of? etc.   The Fitzpatrick scale of skin typing is covered as well as the recommended test patch requirement.

At the Academy we believe in practice makes perfect. You cannot gain confidence with this technology if you don’t practically perform treatments. We strive to give you practice on every body area (more than once), common to the cosmetic hair removal industry. Over the past 22 years of working in clinics, and running our own clinics, using both laser and IPL, our tutors are excited to pass onto you our techniques and experience in treating clients with all skin colours and hair conditions. During training we will be working with internationally FDA certified IPL systems and leading industry lasers.

The consultation is critical to selecting the correct client but also in providing the client with the confidence they are in the hands of a professional. A consultation script and suggested international standard documentation; consultation form, after care sheets etc, will be given to you which you can adapt for use in your clinic once you graduate. We can help adapt these to your requirements.
