Laser Certification (by AMMP)

Although Estheticians cannot operate laser in Illinois, we believe that every person practicing skin care needs to have an extensive knowledge on the technologies used in skin care and a medical setting. Laser class for our students is provided by our partners and professionals in Laser technology: AAMP.

Our graduates have an excellent opportunity to also enroll in the Nationally Certified Medical Assisting Program! Our MA students are able to complete their externship at top hospitals and private practices. 

Hands-on Practice

Excellent skills are the foundation of a successful career as a skin care therapist! But it is impossible to become a great esthetician without spending a lot of time practicing. This is why our students spend more than half of their time in the program perfecting every procedure.The hands-on practice starts from week one, and students gradually improve the complexity of tasks they perform. Our instructors supervise each student, to make sure that she develops the best techniques.

The success of our graduates is easy to explain – practice makes perfect, and our students work hard, always striving for perfection!

State licensing

Upon successful completion of the Esthetics Program, graduates are eligible to sign up for the State licensing exams. We are proud that our graduates have a 100% passing rate in Illinois and have some of the highest test scores nationally.
