Choose From Our Three Laser Programs

We offer laser certification in our esthetics schools in Minnesota and Iowa. If you want to be able to offer more services as a licensed esthetician and potentially move toward a more clinical career, consider enrolling in our laser certification program. The owner of MedSpa Institute of America created the laser license under the Office of Higher education back in 2015, and we’ve been able to teach skincare professionals how to successfully use this high-tech equipment for years!

“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 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!”

Learn As Part of Our Two-Phase Program

As part of our laser program, you can expect to work through two phases, no matter which tier package you choose.

First, you learn as part of our student phase and get a basic understanding of how to use the equipment from our experienced instructors. We cover basic theory, show demonstrations, and more. This phase of the program can be completed in two weeks, and classes are held from 10 am to 4 pm.

Then, it’s time to get actual experience through our internship phase! You can practice using professional equipment, as our instructors advise and direct you every step of the way. This part of the program requires at least 120 hours to meet Minnesota’s laser laws. Plus, as part of our student medspa with laser treatments, your clients can get professional services at a discounted cost.
