Trend: The Lift

There has been an interesting shift in the types of treatments that are in demand since the year 2000.  “Patients have more options than ever, and working closely with their surgeon, they’re able to focus on specific target areas of the body to achieve the look they desire,” says ASPS President, David H. Song.  

In the past, the most popular plastic surgery was for the facelift. But now other types of lifts are booming including lifts in the breast, but also the buttock, lower body and upper arms.  There are more non-invasive treatments to get a “lift”.

At the National Laser Institute, our 2 Week Comprehensive Laser program offers training on non-invasive body contouring treatments like Velashape and Quantashape.  We also offer training on radio frequency skin tightening and microcurrent treatments which provide a visible lift in lax skin.

If you are considering taking our 2 Week Comprehensive Laser program, let Nicole Jouas further persuade you with her experience at the National Laser Institute.

“I loved taking the tattoo removal course so much that I ended up taking the whole 2 Week Comprehensive course! I was SO impressed with the education and staff that I was dying to learn more!” Nicole Jouas

For our CME students, we offer the 5 Day Ultimate Injectables Course to provide training with advanced injection areas (upper, mid, and lower face contouring and mid-level lifting) in order to treat a wide variety of aesthetic concerns.  If you are looking to advance your career with CME training and our 5 Day Ultimate Injectables Course, consider the following CME graduate experience at the National Laser Institute.  

“I absolutely loved my experience at National Laser Institute. I found that the combination of lecture and clinical made the experience most beneficial. The staff were all very welcoming, helpful, and most impressively, were very knowledgeable. As a hands-on learner, the clinical experience was an outstanding learning tool for me. It gave me the confidence that I needed for my everyday practice. Also, I thoroughly enjoyed the exciting and motivational lecture about marketing. It had me on the edge of my seat wanting to learn more! Two big thumbs up for the National Laser Institute Botox® and Dermal filler injectables program and to all of the incredible staff. I would love to come back for further training in the future. Thank you!”  Monica Klumper

“National Laser Institute provides a great classroom and clinical course that fully prepares professionals to administer Botox® and dermal fillers on their own, regardless of their past background. I appreciated the great support from the instructors. The procedures were very well explained and everyone’s questions were answered very well. The instructors are so knowledgeable, kind, and provide informative information. I feel prepared as an RN to inject in a clinical setting with confidence.” Rebekah Daigle

If you are thinking about taking our 10-Day Core Laser Training Course to give you a competitive edge in the aesthetic marketplace, consider the following testimonial by graduate Mary Ellen Genstler:

“I came to the National Laser Institute directly out of esthetics school and with no job lined up after. I knew virtually nothing about lasers in the area of skin care but knew that it was what I wanted to do and that I wanted the best education available. After researching several different schools across the USA, I made my decision to go to the National Laser Institute. All the staff, teachers, laser reps and guest speakers were professional, pleasant and very helpful. The teachers were all far beyond qualified to be teaching and had years of experience in the field of laser esthetics as well. I was very impressed with how available they made themselves for questions and even offered their help for after we left the National Laser Institute and were out on our own. There is no doubt that the National Laser Institute is committed to the success of their students. They have forwarded me multiple emails with job opportunities in the laser industry that were available in my area and have done their best to help me find a job. Since graduating in December, I have been hired as a laser technician in a large medi spa in Anchorage Alaska doing laser hair removal and tattoo removal. Without the great education and support I received I know I would not have found such a great job! I highly recommend the National Laser Institute to anyone interested in the field of lasers and feel strongly that my money was well spent! I hope to be able to take more classes from the National Laser Institute in the future.” Mary Ellen Genstler BBA, CLT, LMT, Esthetician
