Who is a good candidate for the laser training boot camp?
This program is for any physician, nurse, aesthetician, or technician who wants to learn the basics of laser aesthetics. It gives you the background needed to knowledgeably talk about laser, IPL, and LED platforms with manufacturers before committing to a purchase.
If you’re a medical professional, or you’re interested in entering the aesthetics field as a medical professional, this course could be ideal.

What topics does the Laser Training Boot Camp cover?
Our Laser course includes everything you need to gain a solid foundation in the field of energy and light-based aesthetic treatments. You’ll learn about the different uses for light-based skin treatments, including:
Laser hair removal and IPL hair removalLasers remove hair using a single concentrated beam of light, while IPL hair removal uses scattered light pulses at multiple wavelengths. Both can be effective for hair removal, but the best choice for each patient can depend on their hair color and skin tone.
Vascular lesion and vein treatmentBoth lasers and IPL are used in vascular lesion and vein treatment. In general, IPL is good for general skin redness while the laser is ideal for targeted spider vein or vascular lesion reduction. Light-based treatments can minimize vascular lesions and veins in as little as a single session, depending on the situation. The heat forces vein closure, so the blood is rerouted and the patient gradually disposes of the vein tissue naturally.
Non-ablative skin rejuvenationNon-ablative skin rejuvenation treats a wide range of skin concerns like hyperpigmentation and rough texture by stimulating collagen growth under the skin. It doesn’t remove the skin, and is thus considered a mild skin rejuvenation treatment. There are non-ablative skin lasers, as well as IPL devices.
Ablative skin resurfacingAblative skin resurfacing removes the top layer of skin to expose new undamaged skin. An ablative laser also stimulates collagen growth to help with wrinkles, acne scars, and general skin smoothing. Ablative skin resurfacing is a laser procedure that often requires some amount of downtime afterward.
Benign pigmented lesions (hyperpigmentation) treatmentHyperpigmentation, such as age spots, can be treated with either IPL or lasers, as the imperfection lies in the top layer of skin. The light sources can rapidly destroy the accumulated pigment, which will then gradually grow flaky and fall off in the coming weeks.
Laser tattoo removalLaser tattoo removal can be complex because there are so many variables. The ink color, depth of the ink, the size of the tattoo, and other factors all play a role in laser tattoo removal. In most cases, laser tattoo removal requires multiple sessions over a period of months to provide ideal results.
How much does the course cost?
The online course costs $1500. An in-person course is available for $2500 in Denver Colorado. Please contact Dr. Ciocchetti to see when the next in-person course will be offered. Additional, in-person hands on training is also available.
