Our esthetician programs are perfect for anyone interested in starting a new career providing clinical and spa treatments to clients from Pleasant Grove and all over northern Utah.
In order to get your esthetician license in the state of Utah, you must first enroll in an accredited program. Skin Science Institute’s basic esthetician program provides the necessary 600 hours of classroom instruction and hands-on training. Here, you take facial, hair removal and eyelash extension classes, among many others. Once you have completed your coursework, you must pass a state exam before you can receive your esthetician license. Once you do, you are certified to work as an esthetician providing spa treatments anywhere in the state of Utah.
Master Esthetician Programs
As an esthetician, if you find you become interested in furthering your education and career, you may want to apply for our master esthetician program. Master estheticians can perform more complex and advanced procedures such as laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels and microneedling. To become a master esthetician, you must complete another 600 hours of classwork and hands-on training. After that, you must pass another state exam, and then you may obtain your license to work as a master esthetician. Master estheticians have more opportunities open to them because they can perform a wider variety of spa treatments. If you are new to the field of esthetics, you may enroll in the basic esthetician and master esthetician courses consecutively, for a total of 1,200 hours of instruction.
Some master estheticians enjoy teaching. It’s fun and rewarding, and a great way to supplement your income. You can work performing spa treatments and also teach aspiring estheticians on the side. Skin Science Institute offers a 300-hour instructor internship to prepare students to take the state licensing exam. Once you pass the test, you are certified to teach esthetics in the state of Utah.
