• Skin Care 1 FASH 9226

    Our Skin Care 1 course examines skin anatomy and physiology as well as skin types and conditions. Acquire the skills needed to perform a variety of procedures and techniques (such as client consultations, cleansing, exfoliation, extractions and proper sterilization). Using a variety of esthetics equipment, learn to perform a full facial (including extractions) and Swedish massage. Classes occasionally feature industry guest speakers and representatives from skin care product lines who help you become more familiar with the esthetics industry. Practice what you learn by performing services on classmates, models and clients both in the classroom and in the school spa. Public health standards, personal appearance, professionalism, etiquette and the importance of communication are integral parts of this course.
