Thinking About Going to Esthetician School Online?

If you have been considering a career in beauty, you have probably been looking into starting esthetician school online. Thanks to modern technology, you can take control over your career trajectory right from the comfort of your own home. Read on to find out more.

What Can I Learn When Completing Esthetician School Online?

Whether they are online or offline, esthetician schools train students to become licensed beauty professionals. They are also sometimes known as esthetics schools.

Rules and regulations regarding esthetician licensing vary from state to state. However, all good esthetician schools teach their students about anatomy, facial science, safety and sanitation, and skin sciences. Additionally, some schools may also teach their students about customer service, marketing, and salon management.

All of these skills and theories can be taught and learned seamlessly online, though some applied training is also necessary. programs allow modern students to get the best of both worlds: learning on their own time and practicing with experts when they are ready.

It is important to note that esthetician schools do not teach students how to do hair, and makeup, and perform other general cosmetic procedures. These treatments lie more in the domain of cosmetologists. Cosmetologists are general beauty experts, while estheticians are skincare specialists.

What Are My Career Prospects After Completing Esthetician School Online?

Estheticians can work in a variety of different settings. Salons and spas are popular commercial options, while plastic surgeons’ offices are popular clinical options. Opening up private practices is also an option for more skilled and established estheticians.

Estheticians can only work with the superficial layers of the skin, however. In other words, they cannot conduct any cosmetic laser treatments or inject any cosmetic fillers. In a world where the demand for non-invasive procedures is steadily increasing, this can put a major cap on income potential. Unsurprisingly, it is not uncommon for estheticians to choose to “upskill” once they hit a certain point in their career.

Another option is to attend online cosmetic laser training first, then attend esthetician school online. That way, you can work as a laser technician while getting your esthetician’s license.
