Esthetics Programs in Arizona

In the dry Arizona heat, it’s tough to keep skin moisturized and healthy. That’s one reason estheticians are found all over the state. From longtime residents, to the tourists who indulge while on vacation, estheticians may enjoy a large base of potential clients in Arizona. From giving anti-aging treatments in Phoenix, to using Ayurveda facial massage in Sedona, your options for working as an esthetician in Arizona could be quite vast.

Of course, the first step to an Arizona esthetician license is the right training—find out more by contacting programs near you.

How Can I Use an Arizona Esthetics License?

Licensed estheticians provide a variety of services, so your career options can focus around what you enjoy and are good at. If you like seeing the same clients month after month and you have a knack for keeping clients calm, you may specialize in waxing and hair removal. If you can mix up the ideal potion for any skin type, you might dedicate your career to anti-aging procedures and masks for high end clients.

With your license, you may work at salons, spas, department store beauty counters, or medical spas. Overall, the average salary for an Arizona skin care specialist is $35,340 per year (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2016).

Esthetic Schools in Arizona

Like other beauty careers, esthetics is based in practical, hands-on experience. It’s important to attend an accredited program that can provide you with the education you need. Esthetic schools in AZ must offer at least 600 hours of training to qualify for licensure, and should include many of the courses below.

Required Subjects at Esthetic Schools

  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Disease recognition
  • Morphology and treatment of skin
  • Product pharmacology and chemistry interaction
  • Client consultation
  • Esthetics machines, tools, and instruments
  • Spa body modalities
  • Exfoliation modalities
  • Body and face massage
  • Body and face manipulations
  • Body and facial hair removal
  • Cosmetic enhancement applications

Requirements for an AZ Esthetician License

The Arizona State Board of Cosmetology verifies your completion of 600 or more hours. However, you also have to pass a written test and a skills exam. The current exam fee in Arizona is $177, and the licensing fee is $70.

Once you are licensed, you can choose whether to join an established spa or open your own. Your imagination and your education are your two greatest allies when it comes to your esthetics career. Since you’ve already dreamt of entering the field, isn’t it time to take the next step, by expanding your education?
