Don’t just take our word for it; here is what NIMA Graduates and Clients are saying:

Ashley LyonsI went to NIMA for the first time yesterday, I was surprised at how much I loved it! It was my first time getting a facial and it was above and beyond what I expected. Felicia was great!”
Joyce KaronikaI just discovered NIMA yesterday, I am almost done with my RN and want to take classes at NIMA!!!!”
Amber ReedI was pleasantly surprised by how friendly and professional the NIMA staff are. I have been in for two Dermapen treatments and am looking forward to a spray tan before a trip to Hawaii. You cannot beat the prices for services, either!”
Stephanie Runyan MoultonI had the Botox and filler injections. The students did a great job and made sure I was comfortable the whole time. I had a lot less bruising than when I went to the dermatologist too.”
Sara JessenI just discovered Nima’s awesome services a few months ago, and everything I’ve tried has been awesome! I’ve had facials, eyebrows done, and chemical peels. They are wonderful, and very well priced! :)”
Ron Mishelle ThomasI am so proud to be a graduate of NIMA!! I toured several schools before I came to NIMA and as soon as I walked in the front door I knew this was were I wanted to come. It is an amazing school and spa and I recommend it to everyone either interested in this industry or wanting spa treatments.”
Melynn StephensonI recently had my fourth laser hair removal treatment done at NIMA. Each time I have been impressed with how well each student is trained, and the results of my treatments have been really fantastic. I am really excited to finish my treatments and be hair free!”
Shalyse Lopez “I went for a basic facial and was very impressed w the facility as well as the student/ staff. I’ve visited a lot of esthetics schools and this is w out a doubt the most professional. PLUS they do a bunch of great discounts and giveaways (like this Latisse one). I can’t wait to start their program.”
London Rupp “I am a proud graduate of the National Institute Of Medical Aesthetics. I started school in July of 2010, One of my best friends started esthetic school around the same time as I did at a different school in the down town SLC area. When we would compare what we were learning her school didn’t even matching up. She was shocked as to what I was learning, and what we were able to do. Especially when it came down to the Laser training. At her school they were able to watch the laser treatments but they never did any hands on. I had her come and get a treatment from me and she is in AWW when she saw our beautiful school. She said “this doesn’t even look like a school, it’s so nice”. I feel so knowledgeable in the field I was trained in, and very confident that I learned from the BEST. I am now employed in the field that I love. I LOVED GOING TO SCHOOL AT NIMA!! It’s the best around, amazing instructors and staff, beautiful training center, they are professional in every way. Hands down I know i made the best choice by going to NIMA.”
Susan CrivacBeautiful facility and friendly staff. Great place to have wonderful services at wonderful prices”
Hailey HardingI highly recommend NIMA to all. From the first steps of walking in, you can tell just by the atmosphere, cleanliness, and warmth from the staff and students, that you will walk out feeling the same way. NIMA has the highest grade of machines, services, and techniques used for all services. I am still amazed every time I go in there of the great atmosphere around me! Thank you NIMA”
Brittney SanchezNIMA is simply AMAZING! :)”
Joanna Hudson OldhamI have had so many different services done at NIMA and have never been disappointed! The staff is profesional, the environment is clean and calming, and the treatments have all been well worth the investment! I’ve had CO2 Laser Treatments, mani-pedis, wraps… loved them all. So fun to pamper yourself every now and then, and at such an affordable price. Would highly recommend.”
Kelsey ReynoldsI have had a ton of different services at NIMA over the years… permanent cosmetics (eyebrows), lip injections, eyelash extensions, C02 Laser Treatments, Facials, pedicures and manicures, and even a little teeny tiny bit of Botox. I have to say that I LOVE every service I’ve had. I love that everyone just notices that I look good… not that I’ve had anything done because it has all been done really, really well. I feel like the work has been done with the highest quality and that the staff and students have always been cheerful, warm, kind, and fun. I plan to go back many more times to relax and to continue to take care of myself. Luckily, its so much more affordable than I expected so I can continue to pamper myself a little!! I love NIMA!”
Blair SpenceNIMA provides wonderful, quality treatments and a fantastic, relaxing atmosphere. I have been on many occasions throughout the last several years and have yet to be disappointed. Be it a pedicure, laser treatment or facial, everything is done in a professional and enjoyable manner. My husband went for a treatment and he was made to feel completely comfortable even though he had been worried in advance (he thought it might be weird for them to do a facial on a guy with a beard). I would recommend NIMA to anyone and hope to be going back soon! P.S. It’s also great value for money”
Lyndie BarkerI have always enjoyed going to NIMA, formerly ELASE. They are every bit as good as a professional spa, maybe even better because they are trying to learn something the best they can and the advisors are there to help them willingly! And really, the prices can’t be beat.”
Kim BaloI think Latisse is an awesome product. What woman doesn’t want long, thick, beautiful eyelashes. Thank you for caring! Kim Balo, LPN”
Leslie Healey “I love NIMA! I have my lips and around my nose done :) My family & friends tell me I look 5 years younger.. Sara Nielson does my lashes & she is AMAZING!!! Thank you NIMA for making me look & feel beautiful.”
Debbie JoyAfter all the holiday parties, my husband and I decided to do the Mlis cleanse to prepare for a trip to Aruba. In addition, I did the Mlis cellulite wrap treatment, VelaShape treatment, and purchased the at home “It Works” body wraps from NIMA. I cannot believe how amazing I feel! The mental clarity is incredible, and I finally feel my true age. My energy level is back! My clothes fit better and I was actually confident enough to walk down the beach in a bikini with no cover up! Thank you NIMA!!!”
Kimberlie Winebrenner “We just had some fantastic out of state RN’s from Tennessee and also Physicians from Idaho and SLC come down for a two day training with injectables. The models they treated looked amazing. The Advanced Chemical Peel course was a huge success working with Obagi Blue, Jessner, TCA and SkinCeutical product lines. I received the Glycolic peel and loved it!!! Between my Botox treatment and my peel I am feeling great! NIMA is the place for advanced aesthetic treatments.”
Katherine OlsenThe National Institute of Medical Aesthetics is an amazing school. The employees are DEDICATED to ensuring that all students receive the most state of the art training available in the market to date. NIMA educates a variety of students from those who are just starting out in aesthetics, to RN’s, NP’s & MD’s who are looking to enhance their businesses with Advanced Laser and Injection Training. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking to start or enhance their Aesthetics career.”
Christina McGarveyI am writing a review as an employee of NIMA – our incredible training facility. You may think an employee review may not mean as much to the general public, but I feel my review will give you a glimpse of the inner workings, values, and goals of the team that runs NIMA.

We strive to offer the best in all areas by providing excellent support with Financial Aid, staffing Instructors with 5+ years experience in the field of medical aesthetics, by having curriculum that is unsurpassed by any other, by having a facility that is beautiful and clean, with plenty of room for the comfort of our students, and by having top of line, cutting-edge equipment and lasers for students to practice with. Our Spa Clientele is very valuable to us, and we love the loyal clients who are always in the spa visiting us. We are working hard to train students well, so they can give our clients a professional treatment, but at a discounted student price! We have a desire to be the best, and because of this we are constantly looking for areas to improve and make your experience, as a student or client, better. I highly recommend the National Institute of Medical Aesthetics to everyone, stop by soon and see what we can do to help you expand your career, or improve your skin.”
Amy Livsey England “As a graduate of NIMA I feel so lucky to have been trained here in such a beautiful facility. When I came in for a tour before I started school I was immediately impressed with the professionalism and kindness from both the staff and students. NIMA is the place to go if you are looking to start or advance your career in medical aesthetics, you wont regret it!!!!”
Professional Course Graduate Barb Canter: “My success story began when I came upon NIMA for my laser certification training. Shortly after returning to Minnesota,  I landed an exciting opportunity as an M.E. laser technician at a Med Spa. Thank you NIMA and Jennett McKellar for contributing towards my personal success.”
Graduate Chanelle Flores: “Going to Elase Academy was the best choice I ever made for myself.  From the beginning you are working in a professional setting and learning to understand the esthetics industry.  I was a student who was unable to go full time and found that the flex program allowed me to attend school and still work.  The staff at Elase Academy is so willing to work with you on a personal level that you get a complete understanding of what is needed and wanted from employers today.  With the help of Elase Academy I was able to find a career right after I graduated in a Medical Day Spa.  I can’t think of any other place where you could recieve such a well rounded education in the esthetics industry.”
Graduate Tracy Walton: “I graduated from Elase Academy in March of this year. I knew from the moment I toured the school this is where I wanted to attend.  It is a brand new beautiful facility.  I loved the fact that the laser training was on site and how much hands on training we received.  Elase Academy is the only school I found that required every other Saturday attendance, not every Saturday.  This combined with the flex schedule makes it ideal for moms or people working another job! It was a great experience, education and made great friends in the process.”
Graduate Andrea McBride: “I recently graduated from Elase Academy in Spring 2010. I knew the minute that I walked through the front door at Elase Academy, that was the school that I would be attending.  I already had a career as a teacher and was looking for a change.  Because of this, I expected a lot from my education.  I found the experience absolutely wonderful.  The staff is amazing, willing to listen to your ideas and concerns, so supportive and positive, the instructors are knowledgeable and helpful. They were ready to answer any questions we had.  The Spa, where the students are able to practice on their clients, is beautiful with state of the art equipment;  the gold standard in lasers, along with exceptional skin care tools and products.  I can’t say enough.  When I was finished with school, not only did I pass the state board exams with flying colors, but I was absolutely prepared to join the working force again with confidence and expertise.”
Graduate McKenna Walbeck: “Elase Academy was the best decision I made.  I learned from the best teachers, used the best products, and equipment, and made life time friends! It made me who I am today and gave me a head start on my career. I am now a certified Laser Tech and a Master Esthetician at the age of 19!!  Thank you Elase Academy!!”
Graduate Hannah Hausman: “Elase Academy was a great school for me.  They have a nice, new, and clean facility with everything you would need to take advantage of a great education.  The teachers and administration are all wonderful and ready to assist you in whatever it is you need.  They are accommodating with schedules too, so it’s great for full and part-time interests.  Elase always created opportunities for the students to go to events and practice and learn more in the field; and they encourage students to go to the huge esthetics show in Las Vegas every year, for more hands-on-training.  Also, the sole reason I chose this school over others, was the laser program.  Getting to work with lasers and not just learn about them really puts their students ahead of the curve, and makes sure they can be tossed into any job upon graduation without further training.  This school is very accommodating for any schedule or budget and I’m confident I’m a better esthetician because of the opportunities I had there.”
To the Owners from Graduate Kendra Nelson: “When I found out about Elase Academy, I was so excited and knew that I had to find a way to attend this school.  I love your staff!  You are so lucky to have such an incredible team!  They are some of the hardest working, sophisticated, caring people I’ve ever encountered.  They are driven by the success of the students and it shows.  Thank you for opening up this great school.  I have gained so much from attending here.  I also wanted to thank you for your time and effort you’ve invested in this school and each student.  Thank you for helping me with my resume and editing it and sending it back to me.  That meant a lot that you were willing to take time to work with me when you had a ton of other things on your plate.  I am so excited to use all my newly developed skills to grow and create my own success and hope to lift others up along the way.  THANK YOU!!! ELASE ACADEMY ROCKS!!! :)
To the Instructors & Directors from Graduate Kendra Nelson: “I am so grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to attend Elase Academy.  I feel that I have grown and developed skills that I will use for a lifetime.  This school is AMAZING and the staff truly cares about the success of each student.  Thank you for investing so much of your time and energy in me and providing the tools that I need to succeed.  You were willing to work with me financially and did whatever you could to ensure I was able to attend the school of my choice.”
Fantastic Services!‎‎  By Tiffany: “I scheduled a girl’s spa day for my mom’s and sister’s birthdays. There were 5 of us that went. Elase Academy was able to accommodate all of us. We had such a fantastic time. The atmosphere was beautiful and very relaxing even for a school. The girls were very professional. Thank you for such a great relaxing day. I will definitely be back.”‎
Two of my favorite things: Relaxation!  By Kelsey: “I had three services at the Elase Academy… an hour facial, spa pedi, and manicure. I was able to relax and feel pampered but not at the expense of my bank account! The master student that worked with me gave me some great pointers about how to take care of my skin better and I really felt that I was in good hands. I left the spa feeling relaxed and rejuvenated and my skin, feet, and hands have honestly not looked this good for some time! I think that this is something I’m going to add into my regular skincare (and self-care!) regime. :)
GREAT EXPERIENCE!‎‎  By Erin: “Yesterday I went to Elase Academy and had the most amazing experience ever with one of the students. I went for their Signature European Facial. Her consultation was very thorough and I loved that she explained the different steps of my facial and how each part of it would benefit my skin type. Once she began the facial, her pressure and rhythm when applying the products were just right and there was never a pause or moment of hesitation in her massage. The arm, calf, and upper body massage was a nice extra touch to my facial! I went to Elase as a prospective student to check out the school and some of the skills the students have learned. I was definitely impressed, and it’s very obvious that the instructors are providing the students with a lot of knowledge and teaching them great techniques. To top it all off- the facility is so beautiful, and the staff are all very nice and professional. Everything about Elase Academy is wonderful, whether you’re a client of theirs, or a student wanting to go into Esthetics, you will find that this is the perfect place. I am definitely going to finish my Master Esthetics program there.”
Finally!‎‎ By Kim: “I have been looking for a school that mimics the essence of a true spa. Being an esthetician myself I like to support students in their learning process, without clients they are not able to learn. I received my first service the other day. The school is impeccable. The students were able to explain the service with thorough knowledge and confidence. This says a lot about the staff and the expected professionalism. I’m looking forward to my next appointment. Can’t wait. I recommend this school if you are looking for the highest level of professionalism.‎”
BEST SCHOOL EVER!!!!!‎‎ By Tonya: “I was amazed after finding out everything they teach at Elase Academy. Not only do you learn Master Esthetic skills they also offer a phenomenal laser program where you have hands on experience DAILY. You learn the skills to treat numerous skin conditions and disorders. You also learn the theory behind lasers and how the work. Something no other school in Utah is offering. You even become CERTIFIED as a Laser Technician. On top of that they teach you lifelong skills, business, and sales tactics that will only put you ahead in the industry. This really is the best school in Utah.”
Relaxing treatments!‎‎  By Mary: “I am amazed at the wonderful and relaxing atmosphere at Elase Academy; it doesn’t feel like a school at all! I love getting facials and pedicures, but I’ve also enjoyed the medical spa part of it as well. The students make you feel very comfortable and you can tell that they love what they are doing and enjoy being at school.‎”
Amazing Academy! ‎‎ By Kat: “This esthetics academy is amazing. They keep it clean, and the students are very professional and helpful. I have been able to get spa quality treatments for a wonderful price. The students all seem really excited about their master esthetics program and the staff is great too. I highly recommend stopping by.”
So Beautiful!‎‎  By Deb: “I love this place! The facility is so amazingly clean; I can thoroughly enjoy my treatments! So beautiful!! Love the service and the staff! Great experience!‎”
I love Elase Academy!‎‎  By Megan: “I am a student at Elase Academy and LOVE it here. This is by far the best Medical Esthetics School in Utah and the curriculum proves it. I am about to graduate from the 1200 hour Master Esthetics course with 300 hours of experience doing laser skin resurfacing, laser hair removal, spider vein removal, and more. Elase Academy has the best equipment and brand new lasers. Our Board Certified Dr. Jeffrey Ayers is awesome at injections and great to learn from. The instructors are very knowledgeable and make school fun! The Spa is beautiful too, we don’t feel like we are at a school, and neither do our clients. Come in right away and let me give you a facial, cellulite wrap or laser skin resurfacing to show you how great the service is and how cheap the prices are!”
