Help Your Clients Get Smooth, Clear Skin with Your Newfound Knowledge
In esthetician school at Eric Fisher Academy in Wichita, Kansas, you can turn your passion for helping people look and feel great into a career! As you build your skills and learn about skincare products from Dermalogica, the no. 1 skincare brand used by esthetics professionals worldwide, you’ll gain hands-on experience actually performing esthetics services on real clients.
The services you practice are akin to those available in professional spas and salons. By the time you graduate from Eric Fisher Academy, you’ll have performed enough services to feel confident during your first appointments in your new role as a licensed esthetician.
The Science of Skin Care
Before you ever experience what it’s like to apply serums to skin or perform extractions, you’ll first get some very important science lessons. Successful estheticians understand how skin cells die, slough off, and regrow. They know the root causes of certain skin irritations or conditions. And they can select the proper skin treatments to beautify the skin.
The science of skin care really is foundational knowledge for the profession. Without it, you couldn’t serve your clients well.
You’ll Master The Most Well Known Spa Service: The Facial
What, exactly, is a facial? Generally a day spa facial includes cleansing the skin; steaming; exfoliation; extracting blackheads, clogged pores, and pimples; applying a treatment mask, and massaging and moisturizing the face through the application of serums and lotions.
A good facial will also include a skin analysis after cleansing and prior to the rest of the facial, so that you can help your client choose proper skincare products to use at home. Sometimes a facial will include a hand or arm massage to relax the client even more.
You’ll Learn the Difference Between Dermaplaning and Microdermabrasion
Dermaplaning and microdermabrasion are both treatments that exfoliate the skin, but they require the use of different tools and produce different results.
Dermaplaning smooths the surface of the skin with an exfoliating blade held at a specific angle. It removes the top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz to help improve acne scars, fine wrinkles, sun damage, or dull skin.
Microdermabrasion rejuvenates the skin using a special applicator with an abrasive tip that essentially sands down the thick top layer of skin. It works well on most skin types, and can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, age spots, acne scars, enlarged pores, uneven skin texture, and dull complexions.
Get Chemical Resurfacing and Chemical Peel Training
A chemical peel resurfaces the skin by removing old skin and promoting new growth. Peels can minimize acne scars and hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and sun damage.
To perform a clinical peel, estheticians apply a chemical solution to the face to remove the top layers of skin. The skin that grows back is smoother, and the procedure can deliver dramatic results, depending on the strength of the chemical used.
Practice Cold Laser and Light Therapies
Cold Laser Therapy, also known as Low-Level Light Therapy, is a treatment that gently stimulates collagen and elastin production and repairs tissue. It’s ideal for all skin types, so you can use it on a wide range of clients. This treatment is especially beneficial for wrinkles, acne scars, reduction of UV damage, and medically, for the healing of burns.
Perform Eyebrow and Eyelash Techniques
The bread and butter of esthetics services today are ever-popular eyebrow and eyelash services. You’ll be called on to help your clients enhance their beauty by performing:
- Eyelash extensions, in which you add false lashes individually to the lash line to make it appear thicker and fuller.
- Eyelash and eyebrow tinting, to enhance the color of these areas, or to make them match your client’s current hair color.
- Brow sculpting, a semi-permanent treatment that uses a textured gel to define and fill in the brows.
Many people choose to receive these services in the day spa to shorten the amount of time it takes them to get ready in the mornings.
Performing waxing services could be a full-time job by itself, if you’re so inclined. As an Eric Fisher Academy esthetics school student, you’ll learn to perform a variety of waxes, including eyebrows, Brazilians, and everything in between.
