The Laser/IPL Physics and Safety ‘Core of Knowledge’ User course is the course that is the vital first step to complete before attempting to work with laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) devices. The course curriculum provides 4 separate units, which details laser and IPL physics, electromagnetic spectrum, key technical terms, major tissue chromophores, tissue interaction with light, and suitability of different wavelengths for cosmetic skin treatments. Also, the safety component covers national and state regulations, non-governmental controls, risk assessments, audits, along with administrative, engineering, and procedural safety policies and controls.
This course provides you with a fundamental understanding of light based hair reduction (LBHR) using laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) technology. The 3 units explore skin & hair anatomy and physiology, hair interaction with light based therapy, hair removal treatment protocols, patient consultation and education.
In addition, the safety component of working with light based hair reduction devices will be reviewed along with attention to risks and post treatment management.
