The Advanced Esthetics program consists of 210 hours dedicated to instructing applied sciences and skills. This encompasses a comprehensive range of subjects, including advanced cell histology of the skin, the lymphatic system, wound healing, skin classification systems, dermatological disorders and terminology, advanced practices in skincare treatments, chemistry, biochemistry of product ingredients, modalities, electrical and light energy, client consultations involving skin classifications and medical histories, infection control, and health and safety protocols. An additional 290 hours of planned clinical instruction is an integral part of the program, focusing on practical experiences like skin analysis, client consultations, infection control, safety procedures, electrical energy facial treatments, light energy therapies, lymphatic drainage, advanced extractions, skin needling, dermaplaning, and advanced peels. Upon successful completion of the training, you will have achieved the required 500 hours stipulated by the state of Minnesota for coordinated theory and hands-on experience in applied sciences. This accomplishment qualifies you to take the Minnesota State Licensing Exam, paving the way for your journey to become an Advanced Practice Esthetician.
