But in the last decade, there has been a new kid on the block that’s risen with technological advancements. Laser technicians and medical estheticians are dedicated to providing you with safe and effective cosmetic laser treatments or cosmetic injectable treatments. With the proper training, you can become a laser technician or medical esthetician in less than a month.

Step 1: Choosing a Medical Aesthetic School

Before jumping into the first enrollment application you see, you really need to consider your options. There are many important questions you need to ask in order not to get scammed, which unfortunately does happen with smaller, lesser known schools.

For one, does your choice of school meet state licensing requirements and regulations? Is this school accredited? Will they offer you grants/financial aid/military grants? How long has this school been open? Does the curriculum meet state requirements?

National Laser Institute, the leading medical esthetic school in the nation, meets all of the above and has been up and running for close to a decade. We also offer multiple courses and classes in order to meet students needs, as discussed below.

Step 2: Choosing the Right Course

If you’re a medical professional who wants to offer a wide range of services, you’re best off attending a comprehensive cosmetic injectable and laser course. If you’re an esthetician just wanting to perform laser hair reduction, then make sure the laser hair reduction class meets your needs.

Most legitimate medical esthetic courses revolve around benefiting the student. This means they offer both classroom training taught by expert instructors as well as hands-on training course with scheduled clients. National Laser Institute offers dozens of medical esthetic courses that include hands-on training so students feel comfortable and confident with advanced laser technology and advanced injection techniques.
