Our Esthetician and Medical Spa Therapist Program teaches you everything you must know to become an expert in skin care, manicures, pedicures, body treatments and waxing. Working with professional products and technology, develop the skills you need to perform classic facials, specialized facials and nail treatments. Build on that training by learning to provide advanced treatments, including microdermabrasion, chemical peels, oxygen facials and intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments. Practice what you learn by performing services – on classmates, models and clients – in the classroom and in the school spa. Finally, learn how to create a professional resumé and prepare for a formal interview. This esthetics program gives you the knowledge and techniques you need to be able to work at the highest level of professionalism.
