National Laser Institute School Reviews


Originally from Georgia, I headed out west to attend Arizona State University, where I earned a degree in Communication with an emphasis in public relations. After a few years in business development, I decided to attend the National Laser Institute to pursue my interest in a laser career. I have spent the last six years performing a variety of laser treatments, and three years as a clinical instructor at the National Laser Institute. I am passionate about customizing treatment plans for all of my clients, and seeing the amazing changes it makes in their lives.


Going to National Laser Institute was the best decision I have ever made. I was beginning to feel stuck in a job that was unsatisfying. I first heard about National Laser Institute from a physician I had been in contact with. I decided that I could not put my life on hold anymore and immediately called National Laser Institute and spoke to an admissions representative. I went to a grand opening to a laser center in Chicago and told the owner I had signed up for a comprehensive course at National Laser Institute and he offered me a job then and there, before I even was certified! He hired me based on the well-known reputation of National Laser Institute and knew I would get a great education and be prepared to work as soon as the course was completed. Upon completion of the 2 week course at National Laser Institute, a weight was lifted off my shoulders. I met a lot of incredible people who I made lifelong friendships with, and I finally found a rewarding career that I am passionate about. The instructors are extremely personable and knowledgeable. I left National Laser Institute feeling prepared to go out into the real world and work as an accomplished laser technician. Attending National Laser Institute was an unforgettable experience and I can honestly say that it changed my life. Finally, everything seems to be falling into place.

My experience at National Laser Institute blew my expectations out of the water! The staff is amazingly knowledgeable and truly encouraging. They sincerely want every student to succeed! Along with an amazing two weeks of class and hands-on experiences, I made some of the best memories I will hold near to my heart forever. I am truly blessed to not only have attended the National Laser Institute, but that my education at the facility helped me land a job with a dermatologist only three days after returning home! I will forever be grateful for the knowledge I gained from the National Laser Institute, and the relationships I built while I was there.


I attended the 14 day comprehensive course at National Laser Institute in Dallas, Texas. The first week we learned anatomy, skin types, laser technology, safety hazards and how all this coincide with each other. The remaining of the days we went straight into clinical and was supervised while taking patients. We did hair removal, tattoo removal, fractional, skin rejuvenation and body contouring amongst other services while using a variety of top of the line lasers that is currently used on the market today. The school was very educational, hands-on and is everything you expect to get out of the school. I went back to Hawaii to follow my new path in laser aesthetics and I was offered a position at a laser center in Honolulu 3 and a half weeks later. Now I’m currently working as a full time laser aesthetics technician taking patients in all different services. I love the work I’m doing because it’s not only dealing with modern technology, but it is instant gratification for our patients. I would highly recommend anyone that loves the beauty industry or just needs a career change in their life to attend this school, it’s definitely worth the investment. The team in Dallas, Texas was amazing from instructors to the founder Louis Silberman. If there were any concerns, requests or just more time needed to understand a procedure they were there to find a solution. the National Laser Institute is the way to go!

I decided to leave the declining real estate market for a complete career change towards laser and medical aesthetics! In January 2010, I graduated from National Laser Institute’s comprehensive laser course! I really believe “You get what you pay for!” Other laser schools offered me slightly cheaper classes, but attending National Laser Institute’s program was the best decision I ever made! I received exceptional hands-on training with the most elite laser machines and one-on-one time with their expert instructors. I made so many new friends, and the staff encouraged our success the entire way! They even helped me land my dream job at a very reputable med spa in New York City! Thank You National Laser Institute for such a memorable experience!
