Who We Are & What We Do

Laser and Advanced Aesthetics of the South, or LAATS, brings over 20 years of experience in Lasers and Aesthetic knowledge to educate and train only those in this dedicated industry. Penelope Treece, MD purchased her first laser in 1996 and has been lasering everything ever since. She prides herself on offering only the latest technology that really delivers. Kristen Ruel, LE, has been an aesthetics trainer since 1996 and is well known throughout the area for her excellent training methods and thorough classes. Combined, these two ladies are more than qualified to educate and are seriously dedicated to training.

You have seen other “schools” advertise that “anyone can be a laser technician!” We train ONLY licensed professionals in the aesthetics field: Aestheticians, Cosmetologists, Nurses and Doctors. Our courses are advanced and require a basis of skin knowledge and medical safety. Our courses are intense and allow you to choose exactly what you want to concentrate upon and we accomplish this in two to four days instead of weeks of “fluff”….Why should you spend $10,000 and be forced to learn Fraxel if all you want to do is Laser Hair Removal?! Our unique approach allows you to save considerable time and expense. We provide you the knowledge base to operate any laser system within the modality you choose to train, including hands-on training with live models. Whether you are seeking to advance your career, brush up on your skills or learn about the latest technology available, LAATS is the answer.

UPCOMING SEMINARS INCLUDE:

“Best Ways to Treat Melasma”, Why all IPL’s are not Equal” and “How do Peptides Work”
