We do not rely on industry sales reps and field trips to train our students. After just a few weeks of essential orientation, you will begin providing services to the public in our medical day spa. You will provide all day-spa services as well as laser hair removal, laser skin rejuvenation, vascular therapy, skin lightening, body contouring, and be able to assist our physician with cosmetic injection services on-site.

750 Hour Master Aesthetics
For those students that transfer to NIMA with an existing Basic Esthetics license, a Cosmetology license or a license from a state other than UT, we offer the 750 hour Master Aesthetics program. This program is longer than the traditional 600 hour program offered by other schools because we feel it is in the best interest of our students to ensure you adequate time to become experts in all areas of NIMAs curriculum. Our curriculum is more in-depth and offers more hands-on; therefore our transfer or continuing education students are with us a little bit longer. Our focus is on your education, and we know that the time you invest with us will offer exponential returns.
