“Esthetics” is actually a term used to describe a philosophical approach to appreciating things of beauty, reverence and artistry. It’s quite fitting, then, that the practice of skin beautification in the health and wellness industry is also referred to as esthetics- sometimes even going by its original spelling, “aesthetics.”
Depending on their work setting or job title, estheticians may perform a wide spectrum of services, from simple facials, depilatory hair removal and even makeup application.
Estheticians are skincare specialists responsible for performing a variety of facial treatments designed to increase, improve, or maintain the health and appearance of the skin.
Estheticians are trained in skin wellness, most often helping their clients combat complexion problems through a number of therapies and practices.
Waxing, threading, or using depilatories to remove unwanted hair is a common practice for estheticians.
Estheticians often perform procedures and treatments that focus not only on the body, but on the mind & spirit as well – therapies such as hot stone massage, mud baths, and aromatherapy. These are popular additions to the repertoire of many estheticians and fall into our Spa Therapy category. This option requires additional training, however, combining our Esthetics program with our Spa Therapy program will allow you to offer the absolute best possible service to your clients.
