Basic Esthetics Program

In our Basic Esthetics Course we train our future Estheticians in the application of esthetic techniques which include but are not limited to: full theory of the skin to provide proper facial treatments, skin exfoliation techniques, product selection, extensive waxing techniques, natural nail care, eye enhancements, electrical/machine facial treatments, along with a full makeup course. The importance of relaxation is taught to our students through chakra work, aromatherapies, and advanced massage techniques. In our real world Student Spa students are able to practice and perfect all techniques to prepare themselves to be successful in the esthetics industry.
