I am a Salon Professional Academy Student!

It is official. I signed all documentation on Monday to become a student at The Salon Professional Academy.

Beginning September 14th, I will be an Esthetics Student. My class will then graduate July 16, 2010.

So do you want to know what Esthetics is? From A Career in Esthetics-

Esthetics is one of those careers that require you know a lot about a lot of different subjects. Because esthetics is primarily a hands-on business, the majority of your education will be devoted to technique. This covers all components of the facial process. These components include, but are not limited to: Skin Analysis, Cleansing, Exfoliation, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Facial Massage, Deep Pore Cleansing, Use of Various Equipment, Masks, Specialized Treatments for specific skin problems, and Product Knowledge. In addition to facials, practical classes also cover waxing and various other treatments for eyes, backs, and hands.

Modules of study are also devoted to Makeup Artistry and to the theoretical principals that the practice of esthetics is based on. Theory classes include Anatomy and Physiology of the Human Body, an in-depth study of the skin, Basic Chemistry as applied to Product Ingredients and Composition, Nutrition, Sales, Salon Business, Microbiology, Sanitation, and Disorders of the Skin. Although many students enjoy the hands-on aspect of esthetic study, the fundamentals that support the practice are essential.

The depth and detail of these areas of study may vary greatly from school to school.
