The first step in getting your esthetician license is to enroll in an accredited esthetician school such as Skin Science Institute. Our basic esthetician course is 600 hours of classwork and hands-on learning. Here, you master important skills in skin care, hair removal and eyelash extension classes, among many others.
After completing your coursework, you must pass the state exam to receive your esthetician license. Once you do, you are certified to work as an esthetician anywhere in the state of Utah.
Master Esthetician Programs
Many estheticians are interested in furthering their careers by getting their master esthetician license. Master estheticians can perform more advanced procedures that basic estheticians cannot, such as chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing and microneedling.
To become a master esthetician, you must complete an additional 600 hours of classroom and hands-on training. Once you complete your coursework, you must pass a state exam to receive your master esthetician license.
If you are new to the field and just starting out, you may take the basic esthetician course and the master esthetician course consecutively.
If you are a master esthetician and are interested in training others to become estheticians, you should consider Skin Science Institute’s instructor internship program. This program is 300 hours and prepares you to take your state licensing exam to become an esthetician instructor. You may then work as a teacher, training others to perform spa treatments and therapeutic procedures.

Others are more interested in a spa setting. Luckily, northern and southwestern Utah have no shortage of luxury spas. You can find work performing many different types of spa treatments, including applying semipermanent makeup such as lash tint as well as providing facials, hair removal services and so much more.
