Basic Esthetics Program

In our Basic Esthetics Course we train our future estheticians in the application of skincare techniques. These include but are not limited to: theory of the skin, facial treatments, skin exfoliation techniques, product selection, waxing techniques, natural nailcare, eye enhancements, lash extensions, electrical & machine facial treatments, and makeup. The importance of relaxation is taught to our students through aromatherapy, and massage techniques. In our Student Spa, students are able to practice and perfect all techniques to prepare themselves for growth in the esthetics industry.
