Aesthetician & Career Changers

My experience at National Laser Institute was phenomenal. As a 20 year old who previously attended esthetics school, this was BY FAR the best learning experience. I will never forget all the teachers–you’re amazing!

I am working in a medical spa in Mesa. I receive medical, dental and 401K benefits. We also receive profit sharing quarterly. I make the good money and I am absolutely happy and love my job so much! I can’t believe how well this career turned out for me. I’ve worked hard to get to this salary but fortunately it is something I absolutely love to do so it makes it worth it 100%.

This has been an amazing experience and encouraged me to go back to school. I want to obtain my nursing degree and come back for the Botox and fillers course. Your instructors are talented, charismatic, and professional. I will definitely recommend this program!

In September, 2010 I completed the comprehensive laser training course and chemical peel session. Since, and within only 2 short months, I opened my own laser business here in Akwesasne, Canada. I truly recommend this course to anyone that has self drive to learn, and take advantage of the hands on training at. I am so happy to have made this career change and still apply my past business experience in finance. It is so gratifying to see how my clients are feeling so good about themselves once they have a treatment. My business name is LaserSmart, “Love your Skin” Please extend my appreciation to all the trainers that inspired me to achieve my goals.

Hi there! I graduated from National Laser Institute in February of 2007. I own my own equipment and work half time as a cosmetologist and half time as a laser technican in White Bear Lake MN. I LOVE my job! I love people and have done hair for 20 years trying to make people feel good about themselves from the inside out. This is the same only tenfold! I LOVE IT!!! Thanks National Laser Institute for rocking my world!

My training at National Laser Institute was great, not just because I was working with top of the line lasers, but with dedicated instructors that LOVED their job! Their passion really rubbed off on me!  I interviewed, I emailed, I called just about everyone in my state. I "planted seeds" so to speak by taking chances & meeting with employers that weren't advertising hiring. By doing so, that's how I landed a job and was hired ON THE SPOT! I don't think neither the employer, nor I could have been so confident in myself if it weren't for me getting the hands on experience with lasers at The National Laser Institute.

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!
