The health and beauty industry has grown significantly in the past decade leading to the creation of specialties and procedures that better serve the needs of its clients. Esthetics is one of the most popular areas of cosmetology that focuses on skin health and appearance. This growing filed allows qualified and licensed estheticians to work in a wide variety of beauty settings including spas, salons, resorts, and cruise lines. You may also find employment at skin care clinics working with clients who need therapeutic skin care. Students enrolling in this course will benefit from the instruction provided by a teacher who possesses both knowledge and experience about the field, and is passionate about sharing both with her students. Students will understand not only the basic science of skin, but also the art of skin analysis. Our program teaches you not just how to give a facial but how to assess what type of facial is best for each person. In addition to skincare theory, waxing, the science of product ingredients, makeup choices and application techniques, you’ll be introduced to the all-important art of client communication. Students who successfully complete this comprehensive 660-hour program of curriculum, theory, and clinical experiences will be prepared to sit for any certifying state-board written and practical examination that is aligned with national testing standards endorsed by the Aesthetics International Association (AIA).
