Why Consider Esthetician School Online?

Online Esthetician School Why Consider ItAre you thinking about pursuing a career in beauty? Have you considered attending an esthetician school online? Many people mistakenly believe that online esthetician courses are ineffective. In this blog post, we will discuss why completing esthetician school online may be the right choice for you.

What Do You Learn When Completing Esthetician School Online?

Also known as esthetics schools, esthetician schools prepare students to become licensed beauty professionals. Each state has its own rules and regulations regarding esthetician licensing. However, all good esthetician schools teach their students about anatomy, facial science, safety and sanitation, and skin sciences.

Some esthetician schools may also teach students about customer service, marketing, and salon management. All of these skills and theories can be taught and learned seamlessly online, though some hands-on, applied training may be necessary. programs are a way to get the best of both worlds: learning skills and theories on your own time and practicing with experts when you are ready.

However, esthetician schools do not teach students how to do hair, makeup, and other general cosmetic treatments. Although some cosmetologists may be general estheticians, most estheticians are not cosmetologists. Estheticians are skincare specialists, while cosmetologists are in the business of general beauty.

What Can I Do After Completing Esthetician School Online?

Once certified, estheticians may choose to work in many different settings. Commercial settings like salons and spas are popular, although job openings also exist in clinical settings like plastic surgeons’ offices. More skilled and established estheticians may also open up private practices.

However, estheticians can only work with only the superficial layers of the skin. They cannot conduct any cosmetic laser treatments or inject any cosmetic fillers. This can put a major cap on income potential, especially in a world where medical aesthetics continue to grow in popularity. For this reason, it is not uncommon for estheticians to “upskill” after completing esthetician school.
