2-Day Laser Therapy Training Utilizing the Latest Technologies for Aesthetic and Dermatologic Applications | Hands-On Training

As part of Empire Medical's vast array of aesthetic training workshops, doctors participating in the Cosmetic Laser & Certification Training learn to understand and evaluate the growing number of aesthetic lasers and other light based energy technologies presently available. If you presently offer aesthetic procedures you will be confronted with the decision to offer laser therapies to patients as a platform for strategic practice growth.

This 2-Day, intensive, hands-on Cosmetic Laser & Certification Training will give a comprehensive overview of how cosmetic lasers and IPL function, including the physics of lasers/IPL. With our laser therapy courses, you will fully grasp all types of cosmetic lasers, their pros and cons, and other types of conditions each laser can treat effectively.

Empire’s aesthetic laser training is designed for attendees to fully understand the latest technologies being offered including body contouring, tattoo removal, scar revision, acne treatments, as well as the most common indications for treatment. The laser training class is designed to inform and educate you on the latest innovations, techniques, insights, and best practices in face & body aesthetic solutions.

We have structured our laser training workshop for you to understand the basics associated with a variety of technologies and treatment options for patients. We offer extensive training on the various non-ablative technologies such as photofacial, hair reduction, facial skin tightening, and body contouring. As part of the program you will receive various protocols and “pearls” associated with giving effective results for patients – not just treatments. These non-ablative technologies will be showcased over the 2-day event and you will have the opportunity to observe live demonstrations as well as performing various non-ablative procedures on patients.
