What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal removes unwanted hair by using concentrated light (laser) to heat the hair follicle, impairing future growth. It’s undoubtedly the most effective, longest-term hair removal solution available. When performed by a fully trained practitioner, the treatment is completely safe, effective and non-invasive. Read patient reviews from Bianco Beauty’s laser hair removal clients to hear what they have to say about it.

The equipment used during laser hair removal is designed only to target the follicles, causing no damage to the surrounding skin. When properly conducted, sessions are safe for all hair colours and skin tones, though results do vary, as the laser targets the melanin in the hair. For example, those with fair skin and dark hair will achieve quicker results than those with fair skin and light hair, as lasers can easily recognise the contrast.

As both trainers and laser practitioners, our team has provided laser hair removal for many years. Having treated all areas of the face and body, from the upper lip and chin to the arms, legs, back and bikini line, we recognise what it takes to deliver the highest standard of client care. These trialled and tested tips will be shared with you throughout your course.

How To Train In Laser Hair Removal UK

Due to the risks associated with lasers, there are prerequisite courses that you must pass before beginning your Level 4 Laser Hair Removal Training. If you are starting from scratch, we will create a tailored package to allow you to complete all required courses with our trainers. These can be completed on consecutive days or spread out based on your schedule.

Step 1: Level 3 & 4 Anatomy and Physiology Training

If you are beginning your journey from scratch with no previous training, you will always start with Levels 3 & 4, Anatomy and Physiology training. This is a mandatory requirement and is a one-day course led by one of our experienced trainers. Before your classroom session, you will be given a pre-course learning pack to begin understanding the theory.

During Level 3 & 4 Anatomy and Physiology Training, the focus will be on exploring the human body’s inner workings. We will cover topics including cells and tissues, skeletal and muscular systems, ageing processes, and more.

If you have a medical or beauty background and already hold a certification in anatomy and physiology equivalent to level 4 or higher, you can skip ahead to step 2, Level 4 Core of Knowledge Training.

Step 2: Level 4 Core of Knowledge Training

Following Level 3 and 4 Anatomy and Physiology training, the next stage will be to complete your Level 4 Core of Knowledge Training.

Level 4 Core of Knowledge will begin to introduce you to lasers and intense pulse light (IPL) equipment, guiding you through their characteristics and their impact on the body. You will discover how light and wavelengths filter through the skin and the potential side effects laser treatments carry.

We will dedicate time to safety management, which will be explained through diagrams and videos, detailing how to manage risks while staying compliant with the latest legislation, laws and safety standards.

You will also be introduced to client consultations, including how to assess their medical history and determine contraindications, as well as the actions to take should accidental exposure to lasers occur.

Step 3: Level 4 Laser Hair Removal Training

Once both prerequisite requirements are complete, you can move on to your Level 4 Laser Hair Removal Training. For those who complete all three courses on consecutive days, we do provide free accommodation for up to two nights, making your experience as stress-free as possible.

What does laser 4 hair removal training involve? During your course, you will learn the theory behind the following:

  • The hair cycle
  • The factors that impact hair growth
  • How pulses of light limit regrowth
  • Mechanisms involved in equipment
  • The anatomy of skin tissue
  • Understanding wavelengths

You’ll also be taught how to:

  • Conduct a client consultation
  • Ensure all necessary paperwork is complete
  • Stay compliant with industry regulations
  • Prepare your clinic and treatment rooms
  • Carry out risk assessments
  • Manage unexpected side effects

As part of your course, you will also be able to practice your new skills on clients provided by Bianco Beauty under the supervision of your trainer. This will all be photographed and documented so you can use these clients for your case studies.

Once all case studies and theory work are complete, you’ll receive your full CPD Group certification. You will come away from your training with all course content to refer back to whenever needed, as well as our full encouragement as you start your new business.
