Eric Fisher Academy Teaches More Than Cosmetology!

What is esthetics if not the beautification of the skin? If you enjoy helping people look and feel their best and achieve the healthiest possible skin, a career in esthetics may be right for you.

You can learn all about it at Eric Fisher Academy in Wichita, one of the leading esthetician schools near you.

Knowledge of these five categories of techniques will help prepare you to pass the Kansas state board exam and help you prepare for a career in esthetics.

Advanced Facial Skincare Treatments

Advanced facial skincare treatments include traditional or specialized facials, microderm treatments, chemical resurfacing, power peels, cold laser treatments, electrotherapy treatments, and light therapy treatments.

You’ll start every skin treatment with an analysis to learn more about your client’s skin type and determine the best way to treat their skin issues, including acne, dryness, sun damage, blemishes, wrinkles, and sensitive skin. You’ll even be able to recommend an at-home skin care regimen to your clients, or advise them to see a dermatologist for a more serious skin condition.

Facials encompass a variety of treatments that can include cleansing, toning, exfoliating, and facial massage. Knowing how to perform a range of these services means you can customize a client’s experience and keep them coming back.

And yes, technology aids in your esthetics services! Cold laser, electrotherapy, and light therapy are all ways you can help your client’s care for their skin and see results, including fewer fine lines, reduced blemishes, and more.

Body Treatments

The skin is the body’s largest organ, so clients visit estheticians to take care of it all – not just what’s on their face! Treatments like body masks, scrubs, and wraps keep skin all over the body healthy and nourished. Incorporating aromatherapy can create a more relaxing atmosphere and experience for your clients – and leave them smelling great, too.

Makeup Artistry

You’ll learn the basics of makeup artistry in cosmetology school, but if you’re looking for more in-depth knowledge, you’ll want to attend esthetician school instead.

Hands-on instruction in the latest makeup techniques and trends, including corrective makeup, highlighting, and contouring, will include teaching you how to match your client’s skin tone, blending, and color correcting.

Special effects makeup, a subspecialty of makeup artistry, is a valuable skill if you want to work in the entertainment industry, or you can specialize in wedding makeup, a specialty that requires a vision for helping someone look like the best version of themselves for the most important day of their life.

Eyebrow and Eyelash Techniques

They say eyes are the window to the soul – and that’s why people are flocking to get eyelash extensions and tinting, and are taking care of their brows, too.

Eyelash extensions, band eyelashes, and individual lashes create a lush look around the eye and are much-desired by people wanting to up the ante with the amount of glam they emanate. Eyelash tinting eliminates the need for heavy coats of mascara, while brow sculpting and tinting help frame your face and make lighter, thinner brows more noticeable.


There are many hair removal methods, and you’ll learn one of the most common ones in esthetician school: waxing.

Learn to remove hair from everything from brows to Brazilians at Eric Fisher Academy. You’ll also learn how to properly wield tweezers and perform threading, plus the right way to shape a client’s eyebrows.

Hot wax, sugaring, and other hair removal techniques are commonplace; your clients will grow to trust you for your expertise and the way you put them at ease during their service.

Don’t Forget About Hygiene in Esthetician School

While you’re up close and personal with all your clients, don’t forget about proper hygiene! In our school, you’ll learn proper sanitation protocol to keep you and your clients safe and healthy.

Becoming an esthetician lets you help people feel beautiful, but also requires knowledge of chemistry and cleanliness.
