We work diligently to prepare our students to pass the state board examination after they graduate from our course.

Plus, studying esthetics is fun, since a lot of it is focused on the basics of beauty. Learning how to give clients a beautiful glow from healthier skin gives them confidence. It’s easy to see that the field for esthetics careers is only going to grow in demand, and earning potential.

Working in the field of esthetics and skincare, the median income of Skincare Specialists in May of 2015 is  approximately $16-17 hourly, which averages as  $34,000 or more annually.

Nationwide, the median level wage is $14.42 meaning that most licensed professionals earn more per hour than the national average. This means the difference in your potential earnings.

Why Esthetics?

Being a licensed esthetician opens doors for both a stable earning potential and for continuing education; which in turn makes it possible to continue earning higher wages.

Licensed estheticians also have a bit more variety when it comes to selecting a career path.

Esthetics falls into the category of beauty and lifestyle, referring to salons and day spas. Esthetics also has a place in the medical and healthcare fields, professionals with the proper certifications can work in medical spas performing botox treatments and more aggressive skin services.
