Our Skin Care 1 course examines skin anatomy and physiology as well as skin types and conditions. Get the skills you need 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 – in the classroom and in the school spa. Public health standards, personal appearance, professionalism, etiquette and communication are integral parts of this course.
