As much fun as it is to work as an esthetician, some people seek to broaden their skillsets by becoming master estheticians. The master esthetician program is an additional 600 hours of coursework in advanced skills such as microdermabrasion, laser skin treatments and chemical peels.
If you are new to the field, you may take the basic esthetician and master esthetician programs consecutively, for a total of 1,200 hours. If you are already an esthetician, you may take only the master portion of the esthetician program.
Regardless of which option is right for you, you must take an exam upon completion to obtain your master esthetician license.
