Applause for Atelier Esthetique® Institute of Esthetics

“This Laser Hair Removal 5-Day Course far exceeded my expectations. The Instructor has a really effective teaching style. The hands-on learning portion of the class was incredible. Ms. Hanson was able to join our class to inform us about the laws in NY concerning lasers. It was really great being able to ask her questions on legislation as she serves on the NY Appearance Enhancement Advisory Committee in Albany, as Educator to the Secretary of State. This is the best laser class out there and I recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about our craft.”

I would recommend this course to anyone interested in a career in laser.”

The instructors were excellent and extremely knowledgeable about the topic. I made so many new friends. It was a very professional experience! We were shown various laser machines in the practical setting and had a great deal of “hands on” experience. Ms. Hanson was very friendly and approachable. It was an honor learning from a school so well-known in the field of esthetics.”
