NIMA instructors are skilled in assessment and application technique for all areas of the face and for all desired results. You will not find better or more experienced educators than the cosmetic injection trainers at NIMA.

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.
