“The best and only Medspa school in the state ranging from Esthetics, AP esthetics, injections, laser and microblading courses! One stop shop for all your licensure goals. Definitely would not have been able to find my dream job without this school and the hands on training. Thank you Carly and team you guys are truly THE best!”

Jalyn E.

“I attended Medspa Institute of America for both my esthetician and AP license. Both programs are hands on which I loved! I also loved how the class sizes are small! The staff is wonderful! They are always there for you during your time at school and even after you graduate! You also get the opportunity to use some really nice products and technology that you wouldn't get to use at other schools!”

Megan L.

“This school is very good at teaching you so much in such a short amount of time. We were always learning hands on and I never felt like I misunderstood anything. Everyone here is really nice and helpful. I really enjoyed it and was so excited to come to school everyday and learn something new. I would definitely recommend coming to school here for any of their classes!!”

Jamie E.

“From the first day here at Medspa, the atmosphere was very inviting and all of the instructors and students were very nice and welcoming. I feel as though I got a quality education In Laser treatments and I am confident to take clients and educate them as well.”

Clarisse T.

“I started the Esthetician program in August 2021 and will soon be graduating from the Advanced Esthetics program. The faculty here (Ly, Bre, Brittney) are so insanely knowledgeable and talented- I feel so lucky to have had the pleasure to learn from them. If you have the opportunity to learn from successful practitioners, you will be sure to follow in their footsteps and become a success yourself.”

Allie H.

“I attended Medspa Institute of America in 2019 for the laser course. It was an awesome experience being able to learn hands on and get the best education. I was able to get a job at a medspa shortly after graduating. A lot has changed since 2019 with new classes and new treatments being taught. I would highly recommend!”
