National Laser Institute Reviews

I attended NLI in April of 2008 and enrolled in the full program. After only three months, I landed a job as a Medical Esthetician at a prominent doctor’s office. Without the training I received at NLI, I never would have had the confidence or the skills to apply for such a position. During my job search, I had the support and encouragement of the NLI staff. They gave me advice on interviewing and stayed in contact thoughout the process. To anyone I come across who is looking for advice on entering the skincare field I highly recommend NLI to them. It is definitely worth every penny and it will always be one of my most memorable experiences! Thanks NLI!

I just wanted to say THANK YOU again for all that the National Laser Institute taught me. The school is exemplary, and I have recommended it to several of my friends and co-workers even to a couple of patients interested in getting into the field. Just wanted to give you an update and let you know that I was hired by BioDerm Skin Care & Laser Center here in Dallas, Texas at the end of September, 2007. At the moment they have two locations, one in Garland, Tx, and the other in Arlington, TX. They are actually wanting to groom me to run the next location that they are planning on opening in Highland Village, about 5 minutes from my house, which is perfect for me!!! Please keep me updated as to when Louis will be opening up the next NLI here in Dallas so that I can direct people to it. Again, my deepest gratitude for giving me a head start at a new and exciting life!– Mary Matera, UpTown Dermatology (Dallas, TX)

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your fantastic level of quality education you have been providing for your Laser and Intense Pulse Light Students at NLI. Over the course of the last year we have had the good fortune of hiring students from your training facility and their foundation of knowledge performing Laser/IPL procedures and safety protocols was exceptional. Our experience with their skill sets and professionalism has been excellent! Your program seems outstanding and I look forward to talking to your future graduates as we grow our business and bring on more laser technicians.– Robert Komishane, Advanced Laser Clinics (Glendale, Arizona)

Dear National Laser Institute,

I graduated National Laser Institute in November of 2006. Let me say that my training there opened many doors for me, most importantly, my own. I interviewed at a med spa and I was hired the minute I walked in the door. Their own technicians had the maximum 3 days training, so my knowledge and understanding of the industry was superior to even my manager. However, I wanted to get inside the day to day business of laser hair removal and skin rejuvenation and so I worked there to absorb as much as I could. Early this year, I started the process of buying a used IPL and new Silk Peel. I added these to my esthetics equipment and opened for business in May. I lease a small suite in a building with many hairdressers, manicurists, and other estheticians they have been so supportive; sending me lots of business to get me off to a great start. As we all know the business of laser hair removal and advanced skin treatments are highly competitive. I get calls all day long from price shoppers. But that is ok. I cannot and do not want to compete for the lowest price. My specialty is a full understanding of the physics of light based skin and hair removal treatments and their reactions with the human body. I provide a luxurious and clean environment, and I am there for my clients at the time of the service and after. By the way I have received only 1 call from a client with a concern in 8 months time. So this is where I stand, I have a little baby laser & advanced skin spa. And like a baby it will have to be nurtured and will need all my attention and creativity to keep it growing. I am proud and happy and I owe this in part to my training at National Laser Institute, I received more than training there… I received a dream.

What a great experience! The amazing instructor was knowledgeable and had a great energy. I’d recommend this course to anyone who had an interest in the aesthetics field. It was worth the time and money (even having to stay at a hotel for a couple of weeks.) The guest speakers were also very informative! Many Thanks!– Mary Wakefield

As a former student of the National Laser Institute, I highly recommend this school for anyone interested in Laser Technology. I am new to the field of esthetics and recently relocated to the Phoenix area. I attempted to find employment as an esthetician but was continuously told I lacked experience. I decided to further my education by becoming laser certified.Within two weeks of completing the courses at the National Laser Institute I found employment as a laser technician and aesthetician. While attending classes at NLI, I was awed with the organization, knowledge and professionalism of the staff. They go above and beyond in regards to hands-on training, clarifying questions and always ensuring that students are comfortable. The curriculum at NLI is phenomenal with a huge emphasis on laser safety. Learning the proper laser skill set is one thing, but it’s equally important to learn how to grow our own business and not depend upon others. The instructor was a marketing guru who had been wildly successful marketing beauty over the years and owned a medical spa. I also liked the variety of instructors at NLI. Students can expect to hear from dermatologists, nurses, laser representatives, entrepreneurs, and a laser safety officer. I feel I owe my career to NLI and I will be forever grateful!

I graduated in Jan. ’06. I am currently working at Oasis CosMedic clinic in Tucson as an Aesthetician and Laser Tech. I love the field and I see nothing but growth as far as this industry is concerned!– Julia Greenspon, Oasis CosMedic Laser Center (Tucson, AZ)

I knew Laser training would cost a decent amount of money which I was hesitant to spend. Then, after researching schools, I discovered that National Laser Institute was the best school in the country for laser. Once in the school, I realized how to take my investment and turn it into ten times more. This was one of the best business decisions I have ever made.– Holly Casarro

National Laser Institute gives an excellent educational experience for anyone.– Jill

This institute is absolutely phenomenal! Everything about this experience was nothing less then superb. The instructors and people involved went way above and beyond. Thank you all, it has been my pleasure and I can’t wait to call you with my success story.– Ashley Markert
