Wellness Training

Students learn about the water principle, internal skincare, and Murad inclusive health and wellness. As a student, you go through a wellness training program that focuses on the water principle Dr. Murad created to get a more holistic sense of the skin processes. Students come away with knowledge about what is going on internally that effects skin externally.

All of the products and services that the students learn are practiced on each other. They are in a hands-on environment and have three months of classroom spa experience. As professionals, the Estheticians are able to more fully explain the treatments, as they have been through them before. The practice while in the classes is essential to refine performance skills and build confidence. The Bellus Academy Estheticians have everything they need for the real world after they leave.

Business Training

The Bellus Best in Business program is geared toward helping students to understanding business, personal, and marketing skills. Students focus on the importance of client retention, homecare, upselling, social media and other marketing strategies, on both the professional and personal level. Students learn goal-setting skills to manage these aspects of their personal and professional lives.
