  • Abdomen

  • Love Handles

  • Double Chin

In addition, CoolSculpting® treats tough-to-fight fat areas that don’t budge with diet and exercise. As a result, CoolSculpting® is an exceptional treatment to be able to offer your clients.

Cellulite Reduction

Cellulite is an issue that many people struggle with as they age. This treatment works to smooth the area out and treat the underlying cellulite. The most common areas for clients include:

  • Thighs
  • Stomach
  • Back

VelaShape® is a non-invasive body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction. VelaShape® enables you to successfully achieve a toned, contoured and well shaped body in typically 3 treatment sessions (single treatment protocol is also available); making your clients look and feel more youthful. VelaShape® provides dramatic results without downtime or significant discomfort.

VelaShape® technology combines infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum, which cause deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This type of efficient heating and vacuum stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.

Our students rave about their experience with us. Here’s what some of them have to say:

“Coming here was one of the most stressful, and challenging decisions I have ever made for myself due to personal and financial struggles this year. I was so nervous leaving my comfortable day to day life and being away from home. I am so happy that I finally stepped out and took a leap of faith to believe in myself and come here. Not only do I feel like I received excellent training to be a great laser tech, but I also gained something else that I will forever be so grateful for! Confidence and a true feeling of self-worth! The personal stories shaved from Lou and the trainers made me realize life is challenging and you can get through anything if you believe in yourself. I know that I am leaving here as the woman that I lost years ago, and I am so happy that I found her again. Thank you NLI, I will never forget this life-changing experience!” Samantha S.

“Experience has been amazing! I absolutely LOVED learning from all of my instructors, also thoroughly enjoyed all of the girls in the program. So excited to move forward. Thank you National Laser Institute!” Nicole H.
