Many of our prospective students ask us: “Can I do laser if I don’t have a degree or an aesthetician license?” After completing a National Laser Institute training course, you will be certified to perform laser and medical aesthetic procedures.
The industry, however, is regulated on a state-by-state basis. In most states, after completing our National Laser Institute training, anyone is qualified to work in a supervised setting. Most states allow anyone with National Laser Institute’s training to perform laser procedures in a qualified med spa or laser center. Please contact us if you have a question about your state.
Cosmetic injections such as BOTOX®, Dermal Fillers, and Sclerotherapy typically must be performed by a registered nurse, physician assistant, or physician. In some states, a licensed vocational nurse or medical assistant is allowed to inject.
