Master Esthetics and Marketability
Guest Blogger Olga Filatova, Internationally Certified Aesthetics Educator at Bellus Academy
Skin care is one of the fastest growing segments of the beauty industry. Historically there have not been multiple levels of certification and training offered through beauty school education. Some beauty professionals choose to apprentice under more experienced, licensed beauty therapists, while others opt for continuing education through professional associations and annual trade shows.
Because of expanding technologies and the advancement of products and procedures, the industry has recognized a need to provide esthetics professionals with advanced training.
Master estheticians typically absorb an in-depth esthetics curriculum focused on a variety of advanced procedures and spend twice the time training and studying. They receive training on equipment and modalities not covered in a basic esthetics program. Though each curriculum varies by school, topics may include:
Advanced general sciences: Infection control and sanitation; anatomy, physiology, and histology of the skin; chemistry and biochemistry; hormones.
Advanced skin sciences: Botanicals and aromatherapy; pharmacology for estheticians; skin care products; skin typing and analysis; advanced skin disorders.
Esthetics: Advanced facial techniques and massage, chemical rejuvenation, microdermabrasion, LED treatments.
Spa therapies: Body treatments including masks and wraps; alternative therapies, light therapy, and Ayurveda.
Medical: Terminology; pre- and post-medical treatments; plastic surgery procedures.
Business skills: Financial literacy; marketing, retailing.
