Comprehensive Esthetics Program

Skinworks Comprehensive Esthetics Program offers motivated students the opportunity to move through the full 1200 hours without having to graduate from the Basics Program, offering a seamless education without a break in between the two programs.

Our Comprehensive program first starts with our Basic Esthetics education where 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.

Following Basics we move our students throughout our Master Esthetic’s education we prepare our students for the medical side of esthetics. We train on more aggressive treatments such as microdermabrasion and chemical exfoliation with the use of AHAs, BHAs, and Jessner Solutions. Our 3 week Advanced Medical Modalities & Laser class is provided at 900 hours affording the student adequate knowledge on the skin before graduating onto the medical devices. The student will continue to use those medical devices through their remaining education. Being a Master Esthetician opens doors for our students to work on the full body and advanced modalities.
