If you would like to be contacted when this application re-opens for adults, please complete this form OR check back to our website at a later date. If you are interested in our Evening Program at the Rockwell and Reno Campuses, you may still apply today. If you are interested in this program at another campus, you may still apply for that campus for any available timeslot.

Facial care is one of the fastest-growing specialties within the beauty profession, with the development of new products and techniques. Specialists in this area can find work in some of the finest salons offering the latest in facial-care technology and products.

Students in this program are exposed to that new technology, as well as the best techniques for esthetics by instructors with professional experience. Students learn facial massage; characteristics and function of the skin; electrical, chemical, and light therapy; facial machine techniques; and skin analysis.

Upon completion, students qualify to take the State Board of Cosmetology and Barbering exam for licensing as an esthetician. Already licensed estheticians can take our Master Educator course and help contribute to this fast-growing field.

About this Occupation

Estheticians perform detained work with their hands and eyes. There is a focus on personal protective equipment that must be used in some circumstances, and high sanitation standards are essential. The work environment can be fast-paced, so self-motivation and strong time management skills are important. In addition, estheticians must be able to communicate in a professional manner, establish rapport with clients and colleagues, and maintain high standards for quality and customer service.
