Who Should Consider Aesthetics Schools?

aesthetics schools who should considerAre you wondering if aesthetics schools are right for you? The beauty industry is one of the most glamorous fields to work in (after all, it’s in the name!). You get to work directly with clients and help make their dreams a reality. If you are thinking about a career in beauty, you may be considering a wide variety of career options. Read on to find out more.

What Are Aesthetics Schools?

Aesthetics schools, also known as esthetician schools, train students to become licensed beauty professionals. However, aesthetics schools and cosmetology schools are not the same things.

Cosmetologists may be general aestheticians, but aestheticians are generally not cosmetologists. Rather, aestheticians tend to be more focused on skincare. It is important to keep this distinction in mind when choosing your career path.

Furthermore, cosmetologists perform beauty services in a broader sense. For example, they may do hair, nails, and makeup. Aestheticians, on the other hand, may offer services such as facials, skin analysis, microdermabrasion, and sometimes makeup application.

What Is the Next Step From Aesthetics Schools?

Once students have graduated from aesthetics schools, they may work as aestheticians in a variety of different settings. For example, they may work in salons and spas or more clinical facilities, such as plastic surgeons’ offices. Some may even choose to open up private practices.

Some aestheticians, however, may want to “skill up.” Medical aesthetics courses, such as cosmetic laser technician certification and aesthetic injector certification, are perfect ways to do this. Medical professionals can complete our Botox certification over just one weekend, and anyone can complete our cosmetic laser technician program in as little as two weeks.
