Elevating natural aesthetics. Enhancing medical careers.

Our Mission

Since 2016, Pacific Northwest Aesthetics Academy (PNAA) has supported hundreds of students as they take the next step in their medical careers. Our purpose is simple: we lend our industry experience to help licensed medical professionals find more fulfillment and joy in their work. Yes, we teach tried-and-tested methods and techniques—but we’re also your biggest cheerleaders. When you choose PNAA, you get career support and guidance each step of the way.

Working closely with small groups, we seek to connect with students on a deeply personal level. Our students walk away from our aesthetics courses with all the skills, knowledge, and confidence to begin their new careers because of our intimate, hands-on approach. Above all else, we’re devoted to making sure our aesthetic injectors have the potential to become the best in the industry.
