While many of your clients may not know what dermaplaning is, they definitely will love the results from this incredible treatment. Dermaplaning is a technique that uses physical exfoliation to remove excess hair, dead skin and superficial pigmentation. This treatment leaves skin softer, smoother and radiant. Plus, only in the NIMA course, you will learn how to incorporate cryotherapy into each dermaplaning treatment to add a deeper level of rejuvenation and blemish control. NIMA is the only school to incorporate the advanced cryotherapy protocol into a training course. NIMA provides medical supervision for this advanced procedure. This course is open to all students who are licensed within their area to perform these services. NIMA recommends you check with your local agency to ensure you hold the appropriate licensure. Common licenses include ME, RN, PA, APRN and MD.

The Anatomy Cadaver class was so much more than just getting the chance to sit next to a cadaver! If you think you know everything there is to know about the layers of the skin, its purpose, and the role it takes in the physiology of the body - you don't. Jonathan's excitement for anatomy is contagious. I am really grateful to have been apart of the class.

The permanent cosmetics course was by far my favorite course! It is 3 days of all the information and instruction you need to be a permanent makeup artist. The instructor is professional, fun and very helpful. I have been using my skills now for a year with my own clients, making a great extra income.
