Aesthetician & Career Changers

61 of 1722

I received my education from National Laser Institute and I wanted to let you guys know that I now have a job at a cosmetic laser center in my home town. I started working there last year in August. It has been a wonderful experience and I LOVE my job. My boss has been impressed with my general knowledge and competency with the lasers. I owe that to National Laser Institute. When people ask me where I went to school for this, I’m always proud to say National Laser Institute. It was such a memorable experience. Now, I am making more money than I thought possible as a new aesthetician. I want to thank you and all the staff at The National Laser Institute for helping me with that.

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 in to place.

I can't say enough incredible things about National Laser Institute and everyone there!! I graduated from there recently and my short time there I learned 100 times more than I learned in 6 months of esthetics school! Everyone there made such an effort to work one on one with each student and really made it an awesome experience. We got tons of real life, hands-on experience in the spa. Never a dull moment! That being said, since I have worked in the med spa there I will say that this is THE best place in DFW to get any laser treatment because they have every possible laser you could possibly need while most offices are limited to 1 or 2 and will treat you with the limited lasers they have even if it isn't the best one for that particular treatment on your skin type. They have all the best products, knowledge, resources, they are THE BEST! 😀   Don't take my word for it, go see for yourself!!!

I am so happy I made this decision! I am so excited about adding this to my cosmetology license to give myself and my clients new opportunities. NLI is an intense program but worth every penny!

What made me look into laser is I had hormonal acne after having my son.  I was going to do it as an add-on to my Physical Therapy practice.  It took a different turn when I researched products and treatments and found NLI.

The NLI team was available and helpful after my certification and it helped a lot. Shortly after I started as a Certified Laser Technician, I won my first InStyle Magazine award and the life of an aesthetic expert began!  

Since then I have been invited to the MTV Movie Awards, the NFL Draft, New York Fashion Week, The Oscar’s, and The Grammy’s.  I love what I do! I am excited about the direction and the blueprint I created for anti-aging with the skills from NLI. It changed my life.  Awesome - thank you for being a part of the journey!  National Laser Institute gives you the skills to become famous! Get Ready!

Just wanted to give you an update. NLI forever changed my life. I'm a month into my career now at laser partners NWA and I love love love it. I couldn't be more happy with how much NLI prepared me for this. I also just bought a house, closing on it next Friday. All cause I was educated and found a career.

I loved NLI. It was so much fun. I would go back over and over again. I already miss it. NLI has gone beyond preparing me for my future. Thank you so much for everything.

Going through this two week laser course has been the best experience I’ve had in a very long time! As challenging and scary as it was in the beginning, it all came together as the courses and clinicals progressed. I feel excited and confident that I can go for work and thrive in my exciting new career! I also love all the new friends I’ve made at NLI.

I love you guys!! I always recommend NLI to everyone. I just told someone who was looking at a laser school to go nowhere else but NLI. I am so excited for you that you are all over the place now. The class was awesome.  I just opened a small place in N Andover MA. Your instructors are always the best. It was a great experience.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with NLI. The instructors were experienced, thoughtful, respectable, and knowledgeable.

Excellent hands-on learning experience and excellent exposure to these new skill sets.

First of all the school is great. School is in Scottsdale–a most affluent area–so a lot of medical esthetic procedures are done here (the NLI Med Spa is attached to the school). The class is taught by top notch staff, physician and nurse. And there’s lots of hands on time–which is most important. I highly recommend the class. I feel attending the class was a very worthwhile investment, and I plan to attend other classes there in the future. Originally, I was looking at a different school, but I’m very glad I went to National Laser Institute.

Coming from a different culture (Russia) where I was a dentist, I found the staff here very warm, professional, and knowledgeable. The course taught me the latest techniques along with great opportunities for hands-on practice.
