LASER HAIR REMOVAL SCHOOL
Just prior to undergrad school I opened a laser hair removal clinic. After that, I founded my laser school, which became wildly successful.
I started out in the hair removal profession at the advent of laser hair removal. Wally Roberts, an associate of Dr. Rox Anderson, trained me in laser use. If the correct chromophore / wavelength combination was employed, Dr. Anderson knew that a laser could remove hair. The problem was, in order to effectively damage the hair, the skin endured collateral damage also. Anderson and his associate found the solution when they devised the first skin cooling accessory to the laser.
Dr. Rox Anderson MD, a joint MIT-Harvard medical program graduate has been an innovator leading the medical laser field for over 20 years. Over 60 national and international patents were awarded to him and he serves as the director of the Wellman Laboratory of Photomedicine.
Wally Roberts an associate of Dr. Anderson, and an amazing mentor, passed at the beginning of my employment with him. His family decided to close his school as Wally was the brains behind the operation. This left a huge void in the field.
Laser Hair Removal School; Filling the Void
Back in central Florida, my personal laser clients loved the comradery of coming in for treatments. I would liken it to a barbershop where everyone goes to catch-up. My laser clients loved the fun we would have and they wanted in on the action. Consequently, I was implored to teach laser hair removal to many of the doctor’s wives that I was treating. Once I agreed, I was committed, although it took them months to convince me.
I began writing articles for Dermatological magazines about the electromagnetic spectrum. Told you I was a nerd! This led to large speaking engagement offers for Dermatologist, Estheticians, Electrologists and the like. I was touted an expert before I knew it.
My Text Book
I spent 3 years studying laser and light based physics and authored a text book on the subject as one did not exist with respect to hair removal at the time. The Florida Board of Medicine and The Florida Electrolysis Association unanimously approved my book. Doctors and other allied health care professionals from all over the world began seeking out training from my school. In addition, I also served as a 30-hour laser and light based hair removal continuing education provider for the state of Florida.
