“I am a huge fan of sharing good experiences. I respect knowledgeable people that know their stuff. Kris Groop and staff are excellent educators. I am so pleased with my decision to pursue a career in medical aesthetics. I really feel that I put my career in fast forward when I advanced my education in laser and additional courses such as microneedling and chemical peels at Esthetic Advisor Laser Academy. The course was flexible with my schedule and I didn’t feel like I was just another student in the large herd. They keep the courses very small so that you can receive the one and one attention and direction needed to feel confident. I received hands on education with the freedom to ask any questions that crossed my mind. The didactic portion of the course is just as amazing as the hands on portion of the course. I was intrigued by all the science behind modalities such as laser and microneedling. The classroom setting is super comfortable and clean. They are kind enough to offer snacks, movie theater seating, blankets and whatever you need to focus and learn. I can honestly say I looked forward to my courses every week because it was FUN! I was very bummed out to graduate because I wanted to stay and hang out with the wonderful staff of Kris Groop, Tara Steinseifer and Tori Flodin. It’s hard to say goodbye when you are excited to learn and feel supported by mentors. If you are looking for a quality education then you should consider Esthetic Advisor Laser Academy. I completed my course feeling confident explaining laser to patients as well as practicing laser and microneedling at my own offices. I currently work for a medical device company as well as perform procedures at dermatology and plastic surgery offices. It truly did not take me time to find employment in the field I enjoy. Good luck to you in your future endeavors! My Best,”
“Love, love, love this school! Being a former student from another local school, this school is the best hands down. Kris is….well, how should I word this….AWESOME! There are other choices out there, but there is something to be said for smaller class sizes, more personal hands on training and I can’t leave out the comfy classroom itself! Recliners? Are you kidding me?! Yes, recliners and even a blanket if you get chilly from the AC. Oh, and the snacks and fridge with drinks. No vending machines! Larry is really great himself. Very knowledgeable and great at research. Thank you for opening up this wonderful school and looking forward to new classes!”
“Wonderful amazing awesome school. Such great and intelligent teachers. So patient and willing to help you in whatever way they can. Such a comfortable learning environment and a great support system. So grateful I ended up finding them for my education. Worth every penny!”
“Esthetic Advisor Laser Academy is hands down the best laser school in the valley. They offer training on advanced machines, small class sizes and knowledge that can’t be found anywhere else. The training environment is a unique theater style setting with reclining chairs and a full snack bar to help you survive through the long days of training. The staff is incredible and everyone is super friendly. I am so thankful to have found EALA and would not go anywhere else!!”
The 88 Hour Comprehensive Laser Course (Live, block schedule)
Format: In person (all practitioners)
Location: Scottsdale, AZ (all practitioners)
This ARRA approved course combines the 40 Hour Basic Didactic Laser Course together with the 48 Hour Clinical Laser Course to provide start to finish AZ license eligible training in less than two weeks.

Those who have successfully passed the assessment will be awarded a certificate of completion and will be prepared to successfully complete the 48 Hour hands-on clinical course component.
