Further Education opportunities for the esthetician and spa professional

 

The field of esthetics is evolving, with a projected growth of almost 12% by 2028. Estheticians are becoming more in demand as medical spa and skincare becomes more and more specified. Esthetic training programs range from 600-1000 hours with a mixture of clinical didactics and hands-on learning. The majority of programs cover basic skin physiology and histology while focusing on the information and skills need to pass the final exam and state boards. So, what is there after school? What further education is there for estheticians? The list may be larger than you think, and that list is ever-growing.

DEFINING YOUR IDEAL ROLE

One of the first decisions one needs to make, is what type of esthetician do you want to be? Do you want to be more spa minded, cosmetic focused, or clinical oriented? Esthetician’s that work in the spa tend to have skills more focused on relaxation, restorative, and/ or self-care-based treatments. The cosmetic side does more make-up, eyelash services, and permanent make-up techniques. While the clinical esthetician tends to more in a doctor’s office setting or medical spa, providing more advanced procedures with different modalities. Narrowing down your ideal setting and what procedures interest you can make finding programs to further your knowledge a little easier. You must also take into consideration what limitations the state board has for the esthetician’s scope of practice. Here are some further education opportunities worth exploring.

Estheticians have ample opportunity for advancing their education with procedural certifications.
