The Laser Hair Institute offers a comprehensive curriculum of laser physics theory along with hands-on laser hair removal training. Included are advanced application methods which make permanent reduction of facial and body hair an interesting and educational experience.Few schools in the U.S. offer programs in laser technology, sometimes also referred to as optics, optical systems technology or photonics technology. When selecting a laser school, students are likely to consider the type of credential offered, location and career services offered.

The first consideration for most students when evaluating a school for laser technology is the type of credential offered. The most common types of credentials offered for laser technology are associate’s degrees and certificates. An Associate of Applied Science program in laser technology would be appropriate for a student with no postsecondary education, while a student who already holds a degree in a field like electronics might choose to pursue a post-baccalaureate certificate program in laser or optical technology.
