SKIN CARE SPECIALTY

600 Training Hours

How would you like to go to work every day and help others look and feel great? How would you like to interact with different types of people from different backgrounds and helping them to rejuvenate not only their skin but their whole attitude?
Increasing demand for people wanting younger-looking skin has turned esthetics into a fast growing and well-respected profession.
A Skin Care Specialist career involves beautifying the skin in a variety of ways, including analyzing the skin, performing facials, doing microdermabrasion treatments, waxing facial and body hair, extractions and exfoliations and recommending skin care regiments to clientele. The esthetics field also often involves luxury spa elements for the rest of the body, including body wraps and polishes, aromatherapy, foot reflexology, eyebrow shaping and eyelash extensions.
