Online Laser Course Curriculum

Online Course Curriculum 1

This program is the way to get started in this field and see how the various laser modalities are used in the various applications and important considerations to avoid patient injuries. You’ll learn about the types of devices and be better prepared to knowledgeably discuss equipment with manufacturers before you commit to expensive purchases. You’ll learn the types of devices and the basic way they’re used, important energy and dosimetry concepts, and both treatment safety and general laser safety.

The course modules include the following topics:

  • SKIN & HAIR BIOLOGY—As it relates to laser & light based treatments
  • FUNDAMENTALS OF LASER & IPL USE AND ENERGY CONCEPTS
  • TISSUE OPTICS AND LASER EFFECTS
  • LASER HAZARDS & SAFETY
  • LASER & IPL HAIR REMOVAL
  • LIGHT BASED NON-ABLATIVE SKIN REJUVENATION
  • BENIGN PIGMENTED LESIONS
  • LASER TATTOO REMOVAL
  • TREATMENT OF RED VASCULAR LESIONS & AREAS
  • ABLATIVE SKIN RESURFACING INCLUDING FRACTIONAL ABLATIONS
