What to expect from this course

This course is packed with pertinent information and hours of hands-on training. Students learn how to treat a client from start to finish.

We want our students to receive the finest education in Medical Aesthetics. Our hands-on training program is featured in three parts to facilitate learning in a progressive and enjoyable fashion that leads our students to successful completion of the course.

Part 1 Classroom- This is the theory portion of the class. Students learn all the laser and medical aesthetics course objectives.

Part 2 Watch a pro- Students observe a technician performing treatments from start to finish.

Part 3 Your Turn- is the Experience portion and is hands-on in class. Students are able to practice techniques, hand movement, spacing and more.
