Someday I plan to own my own spa and thanks to the ACC Esthetics program, I am equipped with the knowledge, skills, and confidence that I need to make it happen!
Esthetician Program (non-credit)
Estheticians provide skin treatments, hair removal, and other processes that help men and women maintain their personal appearance. Estheticians have extensive knowledge of skin types, potential allergies, chemical exfoliation, microdermabrasion, lash and eyebrow lifting and tinting, sunless tanning and other complications that may arise from treatments so they can make expert recommendations for each client. The work environment can vary from medical to spa-like and plush resorts to home-based businesses.
The course curriculum will provide students the hands-on experience in facials, waxing, makeup application, chemical exfoliation, microdermabrasion, ultrasonic and hot stone facials, advanced waxing, body treatments, camouflage and airbrush makeup, basic aromatherapy, advanced facial massage, medical terminology, working in a medical environment, holistic and alternative skin care using other exfoliation techniques.
