School of Esthetics
In 2008 the cosmetic industry was a $60 billion industry; in 2011 it had increased by 5.3% … in a recession no less! The call for estheticians to work in spas, salons and medical clinics is sounding louder as the industry responds to the increasing demands for skin care services.
Now is a great time to become a licensed esthetician. The number of jobs in this field is increasing at a rate that is much faster than the national average. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics (2011), the number of jobs available for estheticians is expected to increase by 38% within the next 10 years. The rising demand for skin care treatments is one of the many things fueling job growth in this field.
Licensed estheticians in Washington qualify to work performing skin care treatments in salons, spas, and medical offices. They might work at spas located in hotels or at resorts, or even on cruise ships traveling the world. Washington skin care specialists earn an annual average salary of $35,740 before tips, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
At Skin Studio Academy students will learn to perform skin treatments such as body scrubs and wraps, facials, and skin analysis. Students learn to help clients decide on skin care goals and the treatments recommended for meeting those objectives. Skin School Academy graduates will know how to address skin problems such as sun damage, aging, dark spots, and acne.
Skin Studio Academy provides students and alumni with placement assistance services.
