YOUR INVESTMENT IN ACTION

“The Vampire Facial® course was really beneficial to me. Being trained previously here at NIMA for microneedling made the procedure and transition into PRP facials that much easier. I personally really enjoy using the PRP as the only serum on the face because it helps glide the Micropen so we give our patients good overlap and cover all the areas. The instructors gave a really thorough theory and demonstration. They showed us a lot of different techniques we could use which gave us aestheticians more confidence in using the Micropen and different ways we could make it our own. This made us feel more comfortable, which gives the clients a better feeling coming in and getting this procedure. I would recommend this course to all students here at NIMA. It gives you a wide rage of procedures to do with the Micropen. That will broaden your scope of practice. Doctors and medical spas are intrigued and interested in the Vampire Facial® procedure. This treatment is becoming more popular, is very beneficial for all students. I really appreciate all the hard work that NIMA put into it. The instructors really took the time to teach us and make us feel comfortable as aestheticians performing this procedure.”

Willow Freer, LME

NIMA is a wonderful place to advance in aesthetics. I have been a labor and delivery nurse for 7 years but I’ve always had a passion for aesthetics and skincare. This past year I decided to step outside my comfort zone and dive into the medical aesthetics but I was completely unsure how to go about it. I googled many different schools and hoped that one would stand out and NIMA definitely did. NIMA is nationally accredited which was reassuring along with all the great reviews from current and previous students. I called and spoke with Sasha and right away I felt very comfortable. She was able to tell me which Master courses I would need to advance my career. I have thus far completed two certifications with NIMA and I can’t say enough good things! The instructors are top notch and really hone in on each student. The class sizes are small enough and you don’t feel like just another number. Everyone I have met in both the Salt Lake City and Las Vegas locations have been amazing and encouraging. I feel confident in what I have learned and I already have an interview in Colorado (where I am currently living). I highly recommend giving NIMA a call as you won’t regret all the amazing hands on experience, which is vital!
