Why Medical Aesthetics?

The medical aesthetics industry is currently a billion dollar industry. Services such as Botox, dermal fillers, and laser hair removal are the top nonsurgical cosmetic treatments in the nation with over a million treatments performed each year in the U.S. alone. Did you know Allergen (the maker of Botox and Juvederm) was recently acquired for 66 billion dollars? WOW! How is that for a forecast of the potential in this industry? Adding cosmetic medicine as an additional skill set can be beneficial toward capitalizing on this growing market. Medical professionals who provide noninvasive cosmetic services do not have to worry about the hassle of insurance reimbursements since cosmetic treatments are a cash-in-hand service. With the demand of these treatments high and predicted to increase, now is the best time to receive training. Medical professionals have a huge competitive advantage over medical spas. Medical practices already have existing patients they may talk to about treatments versus medical spas that have to spend huge dollars marketing for new clients.

National Laser Institute offers the highest quality and most comprehensive hands-on medical aesthetic training programs in the United States. Any clinician, whether you are a MD, DO, PA, APRN or RN, will benefit from the technical training and practical knowledge for business development delivered by our knowledgeable and experienced dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons, nurses and Cosmetic laser experts.

Medical Professional Testimonials

I’d like to say that the overall experience was an eye-opener for me specifically as it applies to aesthetic nursing. It’s a totally new frontier that I found extremely interesting and educational. The program’s most rewarding aspect was the ability to perform hands-on clinical skills immediately after the didactic portion using real clientele! But that was easily trumped by the quality of diversified and thoroughly educated/skilled, experienced and friendly instructors I had throughout the entire course. I don’t want to leave out the courteous and helpful front desk staff too! And having Louis personally come to visit and say hello to each one of us was most appreciated!
– Denny Joe, RN

All the instructors were very knowledgeable and supportive. Great pieces of wisdom, especially in preventing and treating adverse side effects. I learned it’s super important to evaluate patients to be sure that they are eligible to receive treatments. I was glad to see that there was so much focus on safety.
– Dr. Jill Kirkpatrick

I’ve been looking into this school for two and a half years, and I’m SO glad I finally came! The curriculum and experiences here have opened my eyes to new ways to treat and keep skin healthy and young.
– Marissa White
