7 Month* Esthetics Career Training Program in Williamsville, NY
If you enjoy maintaining and enhancing the look of peoples’ skin and would enjoy working in a sociable environment such as a salon or health spa, consider becoming a licensed Esthetician.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Esthetics profession is projected to grow at 14% from 2016-2026, faster than the national average. The expected growth for this occupation may be due to the fact that many women and an increasing number of men are turning to skin care specialists to beautify their skin and reduce the effects of aging.
Becoming a Skilled Professional Esthetician

Those could include makeup, depilatories, tonics, lotions, waxes, sanding, tweezing and more. These procedures and/or compounds can be performed and/or applied manually, mechanically, chemically or electrically. Clearly, it takes a trained expert to perform esthetics techniques.
