Skin Esthetician Career
As a skin care specialist, you can look forward to a rewarding career that will bring the day-to-day satisfaction of helping others, whether it’s helping clients alleviate a bothersome skin condition or helping them release tension through a relaxing body treatment. If you’re skilled, you can also expect to grow a steady base of clients — many of whom you’ll get to know on a personal level.
If you work in a salon or spa, you can also expect a flexible work schedule with plenty of opportunities to work evening and weekend hours, times that tend to be busiest for skin care professionals. This flexibility also makes it possible for skin care specialists to branch out into other areas, by working as a part-time educator or examiner, for example.
Skin Esthetician License
After completing the skin care or esthetician school program, Jolie graduates are eligible to take the licensing exam in the state where they wish to work. Licensing exams vary by state, but are generally comprised of both a written and a practical component. Once licensed, esthetics or skin care professionals will work in salons, day spas or medical offices, where they’ll give skin consultations and treatments to patients. Skin care professionals may also apply makeup, give detoxifying body wraps or remove unwanted body hair.
