The Electrolysis and Laser Course
Become an Electrologist and Laser Tech at Florida Medical & Aesthetic International School (FLMAIS), the new name of Florida Medical College. Our Electrologist Program prepares the students to permanently remove the unwanted hair using electrolysis machine or laser devices for permanent hair reduction.
This course is completed in 320 hours divided into 120 theoretical hours and 200 practical hours. Due to COVID restrictions we are temporarily offering 120 hours of theoretical classes in a live virtual classroom. The practices of the electrolysis and laser modalities are being carried out at the school.
The anatomy of the skin and hair, the components of the endocrine, nervous and circulatory systems are important topics for students to learn. Bacteriology and sanitation, business management, and Florida laws are other aspects included in the Electrology curriculum. In addition, the professional aspects of the consultation and clinical application of electrolysis modalities and laser hair removal protocols are topics that are part of the outline course.
Because a new class starts every Monday, applicants can start every week. For those who want to become laser technicians, they will need to enroll in this program the week before the Monday they want to start.
Those who want to enroll in the Electrology Program can apply in person, online or by email. Classes are offered in the morning, afternoon and evening.
The Electrology Program has included a special part of Laser Hair Removal that includes the knowledge and skills necessary to perform laser hair removal safely and with good results. Major topics in this program include laser physics, tissue interaction, laser protocols, laser safety, and practices to develop the skills necessary to use the laser devices.
Laser hair removal tech is an electrologist board certified profesional specializing in laser hair removal procedures commonly performed in laser center, medical spa or ambulatory health care setting. Our student’s goals are to become not only a professional in the health care services, but a renown professional in the latest aesthetic technology.
The medical electrolysis procedure is the only recognized method for permanent hair removal. It is the only method approved by the FDA. Electrolysis involves the application of electricity through a sterile probe (a very fine needle) to cause a chemical or thermal reaction to destroy the hair follicle.
Although most people prefer to use of laser for permanent hair reduction, some parts of the body cannot be laser treated and some hair types cannot be laser treated either, such as gray or blonde hair that requires the use of electrolysis for permanent removal.
Graduates from FLMAIS, also have opportunities to work in Medical spas and dermatology offices among others. In as little as 2 months if you take full time course or between three(3) to six(6) months if you apply for partial time.
