Skin Care

The Skin Care program is offered exclusively at our Margate campus, and covers the basic knowledge and skills required to become an entry-level Skin Care technician and prepares students to sit for appropriate licensure exams.

Students receive training from industry professionals specializing in skin care treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, high frequency treatments, as well as eyelash extensions, waxing, and extensive make-up techniques and applications. To enhance the educational process students work with professional lines such as Ofra Cosmetics and Rhonda Allison Skincare for hands on practical support.

Students receive hands-on salon experience in our Student Salon and Spa, which serves the surrounding community with services at discounted rates, and helps ensure graduates are prepared to work in a real world environment upon graduation and licensure.

Nature of the Work

Skin care specialists, or estheticians, cleanse and beautify the skin by giving facials, full-body treatments, and head and neck massages, as well as utilize their creativity to apply and blend makeup. Skin care technicians may also remove hair through waxing. In addition to working with clients, personal appearance workers may keep records of skin care regimens used by their regular clients. Work schedules may include evenings and weekends, the times when beauty salons are busiest. Many workers, especially those who are self-employed, determine their own schedules. Skin care specialists usually work in clean, pleasant surroundings with good lighting and ventilation. Most work in a salon, although some may work in a spa, hotel, or resort.
