Our Skin Care Program goes well beyond basic Skin Care training. Students will learn the structure and functions of the skin and how to recognize and identify lesions and diseases of the skin. Students will also learn Skin Care techniques for treating problematic skin conditions such as oiliness, dryness, come domes, acne, discoloration, and scarring.
You will be trained to recognize skin problems that require a Dermatologist or a Medical Professional, and refer your clients for medical treatment if the skin problem is beyond the scope of the esthetician’s job. Many Skin Care professionals also have the opportunity to become medical estheticians or paramedical estheticians and move into the medical field in places like dermatology offices or plastic surgery offices.
The objective of this program is to provide comprehensive training in the field of Skin Care and to successfully complete the State and school requirements to become eligible for registration with the Board of Cosmetology (DBPR).
