Esthetician and Medical Spa Therapist Program


Our Esthetician and Medical Spa Therapist Program teaches you everything you need to know to become an expert in skin care, manicures, pedicures, body treatments and waxing. Work with professional products and technology as you 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. Further hone your skills through our advanced clinical component, which gives you the chance to apply the knowledge and techniques gained throughout your studies. Practice working independently and as a productive member of a team as you prepare for the workplace and get the confidence you need. Finally, learn how to create a professional resumé and prepare for a formal interview while also examining what is required to open and run a successful business. This esthetics program gives you the knowledge and techniques you need to be able to work at the highest level of professionalism.
