The Cosmetic Esthetician program is designed to offer esthetics training for entry-level students. Completion of the program prepares students to sit for the Esthetics licensure examination given by the Georgia State Board of Cosmetology and to work in a variety of professions that employ estheticians in beauty salons, spas, health clubs, cosmetics stores as well as plastic surgeons' and dermatologist's offices.
If you love the field of cosmetology, but would like to specialize in the study of skin care, then an esthetician career may be perfect for you. When you've received your esthetician license, your job at a salon is to make the customer feel pampered and relaxed by providing facials, pore cleansing and exfoliation treatments, body wraps and polishes, manicures and/or pedicures, foot reflexology, aromatherapy and spa treatments as well as hair removal (waxing) treatments.
Students who train to become a esthetician learn about beautifying the skin through a variety of means, including facials, skin analysis, makeup artistry, pore cleansing, microdermabrasion techniques, European facial treatments, spa treatments using body polishes and wraps, aromatherapy and skin care regimens, foot reflexology, depilation and waxing, and eyebrow shaping and lash tinting.
Becoming an esthetician can lead to many different career paths, including salon, spa and resort employment, manicurist, pedicurist or manager. Individuals who become estheticians also find rewarding careers in cosmetics marketing, purchasing, or beauty consulting.
If you like pampering your customers, this may be the career for you.
