When it comes to training in the medical aesthetics industry, here at the National Laser Institute we offer a truly unique experience.

With our hands-on training along with our classroom instruction, you’ll leave our program feeling confident about your ability to start a flexible career in the medical aesthetics industry.  Depending on what your professional background is and what your career goals are, we have a few different programs that may work for you. If you are a medical professional such as a nurse or doctor, we have a two week CE/CME course that covers cosmetic lasers and injections. During this course, you’ll learn everything from how to administer in-demand treatments such as Botox injections to performing treatments such as laser hair removal and coolsculpting. If you don’t have a medical background, don’t worry! We have a two-week comprehensive laser cosmetics course where you’ll learn all the most in-demand laser cosmetic treatments in the medical aesthetics industry! You’ll have hands-on practice and classroom learning so that by the end of the program you’ll walk away feeling ready to start a flexible career as a laser technician.   


Our NEW cutting-edge online experience will enable you to continue on your journey towards learning injections and more. During our CE/CME Online Cosmetic Injections Course you will receive a combination of online classroom and clinicals, including demonstrations on Botox, Dermal Fillers, Off Label Botox & Filler Injections, PRP, Sclerotherapy, Kybella & PDO Threads. 

This course gives you a comprehensive overview of everything that the medical aesthetics industry offers. You’ll leave the course feeling confident in your ability to administer Botox and filler injections. This is a great option if you are looking to transition fully into the medical aesthetics field and want to work at a medical spa or other places of employment focusing on administering medical aesthetic treatments.   

If you’re someone who doesn’t come from a medical background, don’t worry we have courses that are perfect for you as well! Anyone can perform cosmetic laser treatments with the proper training and certification. Here at the National Laser Institute, we also offer a Online Comprehensive Laser Course where you will receive a combination of online classroom laser training and clinicals with a variety of instructors and live demonstrations with several hours on each modality. Modalities include Laser Hair Removal, Photofacial, Laser Skin Rejuvenation, Radiofrequency Skin Rejuvenation, Coolsculpting, Cellulite Reduction, Tattoo Removal, Radiofrequency Skin Tightening, and Microneedling.
