Take a look at this amazing testimonial from one of our students! This could be you!

“I’m living the dream! I wanted it, I did it, I loved it! I just completed the Comprehensive Laser Course at NLI in Scottsdale Arizona and I am so excited! The course far exceeded my expectations in every way. I already knew that I would be attending the most respected school in the industry, but after completing the course I now know why National Laser Institute has that reputation. The reason is Louis Silberman! Everything about Louis is first class. Everything from his catered Skin Scene Events, to the equipment the students and staff have access to, to the exceptional staff he employs. From the moment you meet Louis, you are inspired by his energy and outgoing personality. He is genuine and cares about every student. His standards are extremely high and his instructors are a reflection of that. They are the absolute best!”

“I had the most amazing time at National Laser Institute. The instructors were amazing–nothing less than phenomenal. I never thought I could learn so much and be comfortable firing a laser in such a short amount of time. I cannot wait to return to Dallas just to visit all the girls. This was the greatest experience for myself and greatest choice for my career! Everyone was just so helpful and encouraging. It was a lot of great information, and I came home feeling extremely accomplished. If there are any more classes I can take from National Laser Institute, I definitely will be signing up!”
