Erin Cooper, LME, CLT
Erin is a highly experienced medical aesthetician, AZDHS certified laser technician and trainer, and an advanced medical aesthetics clinical trainer. She is also the founder of Med-Surg Aesthetics and Laser Academy. Erin started Med-Surg Aesthetics and Laser Academy as an intensive hybrid (online/in-person) educational program for licensed aestheticians wishing to obtain laser certification and learn specialized skills specific to medical and surgical environments.
When she began her career as an aesthetician 27 years ago, the professional scope and earning potential in the profession were very limited. The only options for those who wanted to work in the medical space, were to have an "in" through personal connections, "pay their dues" for years until they were experienced enough, or hope to be in the "right place at the right time." That left many feeling deflated, ultimately leading to numerous talented individuals quitting the industry despite their potential.
Erin loved aesthetics, but in search of a more fulfilling role within her career, she enrolled in nursing school. The problem was, she didn't want to be a nurse. Erin quickly realized that she was on the wrong path and needed to pivot. During that time, medical aesthetics and cosmetic lasers started to become more mainstream, and that's where she found her place!
Erin has been determined to change how Aestheticians and medical professionals navigate their career paths and educate themselves to grow as professionals for many years, and in March 2019, she began doing just that! When Covid-19 began ravaging the nation, Erin decided to take her future into her own hands. She started creating curriculum that would fast-track aestheticians and medical professionals into the medical aesthetics industry by providing targeted education.
With the continual introduction of new technologies, cosmetic devices, and treatment protocols, a basic aesthetics education is no longer adequate for work in most medical environments. Med-Surg Aesthetics and Laser Academy will prepare providers to work alongside physicians and surgeons so that we can support and enhance their practices.
Utilizing her education and extensive experience as a spa aesthetician, medical aesthetician, oncology aesthetician, laser technician, and clinical trainer, Erin is bridging the educational gap so that talented, qualified professionals can now enjoy a rewarding career in medical aesthetics.
"I believe that education is paramount to continued success in our industry, and I'm committed to providing the most current and innovative treatment information available!"
