Laser/IPL training courses are available in the UK for members of the cosmetic and medical profession.

Most Laser/IPL users will require a Core Of Knowledge certificate and manufacturer training to be able to gain insurance for providing treatments with their systems, and some local councils will also have requirements for registration. There are some types of lasers, such as CO2 which are often restricted to doctors, but beauty therapists or advanced skin specialists are able to use high powered laser devices, such as those used for hair removal, along with aesthetic nurses and doctors, if appropriately trained.

Laser/IPL training varies from course to course to allow for the proficient training in the treatment of hair removal, skin rejuvenation as well as pigmented and vascular problems. Once you have received your qualification you will be certified to perform laser and IPL treatment in accordance with UK regulations in your clinic.
