Those who want to be estheticians in Utah must start by entering an accredited program such as one of the esthetician programs at Skin Science Institute. Our basic esthetician program is 600 hours of classwork and practical training, including lash extensions classes, skin care courses and lessons on nail care, facials and more.
Once you complete the course, you must next pass a state exam. After you receive your esthetician license, you will be certified to work as an esthetician anywhere in the state of Utah.
Master Esthetician Programs
Some estheticians seek to take their learning a step further by enrolling in our master esthetician program. A master esthetician is allowed to administer more advanced spa treatments such as laser skin resurfacing, microneedling and chemical peels.
To become a master esthetician, you must take an additional 600 hours of classroom instruction and hands-on learning. Once you pass your state exam, you can receive your master esthetician license. As a master esthetician, you will have many more opportunities open to you, and your base salary will be higher.
If you are a master esthetician in the Bluffdale area and you want to become an esthetician teacher, enroll in Skin Science Institute’s instructor internship program. This program is 300 hours of instruction in how to train prospective estheticians, after which you must pass a state exam to become a certified instructor.
Many of our graduates find this work satisfying and enriching because they can supplement their esthetician work with teaching.
Working as an Esthetician in Bluffdale
When you get your esthetician license, you have a lot of different types of jobs open to you. You may prefer to work in a medical setting, in a dermatologist’s or plastic surgeon’s office. Many students enjoy working in a clinical setting and learning from medical professionals.
Others are more interested in working in a spa environment. Here, you perform some of the same procedures such as facials, peels and extractions, but you also get to practice your makeup skills such as lash perming and tinting. Spa treatments are in demand at ski resorts, vacation spots and all over northern and southwestern Utah.
Student Spa Serving Bluffdale
Our esthetician school operates two student spas — one at our Orem location and one at our Sandy location. Here, our students use the knowledge they learned in skin care, hair removal and lash extensions classes to provide the spa treatments residents of Bluffdale and the nearby communities are looking for.
