“I’m not sure if you remember me or not, but your school changed my life in the summer of 2011. I was finishing esthetics school, making a life change. After I went to the National Laser Institute Dallas campus. I believe I was in the 2nd class there. Once I completed my training, I was hired to run the Laser and Aesthetic Center for a dermatology practice. Recently, I was recruited to be the director of the Laser Center and MEDspa.

I just wanted to thank you again, from the bottom of my heart. You truly did change my life. I continue to send students to NLI.”

Paul Kraft

“When choosing an institution to learn laser aesthetics, there were few truly accredited institutions available. After a lot of research, I chose to travel to Scottsdale, Arizona to attend National Laser Institute. My training at National Laser Institute has empowered me to start my own successful business, Leah’s Laser Aesthetics and Spa. I now have confidence in my skills and have developed a reputation in my community.
