Skin care specialists, also called aestheticians, provide skin care treatments to clients to help them look and feel great. Along with the skills and education you can learn in skin care training, specialists should have people skills and enjoy developing successful client relationships. Skin care is a rewarding industry that can lead to a lucrative career with much personal freedom.

How to Prepare for a Career in Skin Care

Requirements for a skin care license include a high school diploma or equivalent, and completion of a skin care program at a state-licensed cosmetology school. Skin care programs are offered through high schools and trade or vocational schools. Full-time skin care training programs usually last about 6 months, depending on state guidelines for required hours. Coursework often covers:
  • Skin care treatments
  • Science of skin care
  • Massages
  • Waxing
  • Reflexology
A well-rounded education also includes some focus on business-building and interpersonal relationship skills.

Career Outlook for Skin Care Professionals

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual wage for skin care licensees is $32,040, with the top 90 percent earning $52,340 per year. Most work in a salon, spa, hotel, or resort. As the number of full-service spas grows, many job opportunities are being created for skin care specialists. Aestheticians can expect large gains in employment in the skin care industry, growing almost 38 percent. This faster-than-average growth is attributed to the popularity of skin care treatments for relaxation and wellness.
