Without this skill, you may be limiting your career opportunities. According to Fortune Business Insights, the global laser hair removal market size is projected to reach USD 1,378.4 million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 15.2% during the forecast period. The Australian College of Beauty Therapy (ACBT) offers the Science of Beauty Course, which combines the code Diploma of Beauty Therapy with units in laser hair reduction. Upon successful completion, students achieve a recognised laser safety officer’s certificate and the supervised hours required to apply to the Radiological Counsel of WA to apply for a laser license exemption in hair removal. In WA, you cannot operate a laser with the correct laser licence exemption (Radiological Council of WA). 

The wide availability of advanced hair removal technologies will be one of the top growth drivers for this market, states Fortune Business Insights in its report, titled “Laser Hair Removal Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Product (Diode, Alexandrite, Nd: YAG, and Others), By End User (Hospitals, Medical Spas & Specialty Clinics, and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027”. Laser hair removal treatments are gaining popularity owing to their proven efficacy in preventing hair growth. 

To capture this trend, many companies have developed a portfolio of novel hair removal systems based on laser technology. For instance, Nordlys, a hair removal machine by Ellipse uses both laser (Frax 1550 and Nd: YAG 1064) and Selective Waveband Technology (IPL) to perform hair removal procedures. Similarly, the Thunder MT system from Advanced Esthetics Solutions integrates Nd: YAG and Alexandrite lasers, enabling the machine to perform a wide range of hair treatments. Thus, rising availability of such innovative hair technologies will brighten the prospects for this market in the coming years.
