Ann made it a goal early on to own every type of laser system that would treat acne due to her own personal struggles. However, what she didn’t foresee was how she could change the life of those suffering from severe ingrown hairs in the bikini line or give back confidence to a women that was growing hair on her face. After seeing the community respond so well to the AW Institute, the natural progression was to add on the laser certification component, held at our Clinic where we house all of our lasers. Both Ann and her husband Sam take an active role in teaching the advanced treatments and courses. We look forward to speaking to you about any questions that you may have.
Laser Hair Removal Technician Certification:
In 2010 the Texas Legislature passed a law requiring anyone who performs laser hair removal procedures with a class IV laser device to be licensed through a Texas DSHS approved program.
Below is the list of courses for LHR certification that we offer along with our prices:
Apprentice-in-Training $995 (plus $50 fee paid to DSHS)
40 hour didactic course (8 credit hours can be given with a valid CPR certificate)
Laser Technician $1,200 (plus $70 fee paid to DSHS)
You must perform 100 body sites after completing the Apprentice (Didactic) stage. This will allow you to perform treatments unsupervised (though still under the guidance of a Medical Director) once your license arrives in the mail.
Senior Technician $500 (plus $100 fee paid to DSHS)
You must observe 100 body sites after receiving your Laser Hair Removal Technician certification.
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A SENIOR TECHNICIAN TO PERFORM LHR TREATMENTS
Call for additional discounts on bundled classes!
Students actually get to see live demos during the 40 hour didactic.
