Michigan Skin Care & Esthetics Schools

Do you want to work on the shores of Lake Michigan, helping tired travelers unwind and detox? Or would you feel more at home in one of the Lower Peninsula’s busy cities, offering the latest in skin care technology, research, and products?

Michigan has these options and more, when you choose to enter the field of esthetics. All you have to bring is your strong hands, your love of beauty, and a willingness to learn.

The first step to licensure is training, so get started by checking out the list of Michigan skin care training programs below.

How Can I Use a Michigan Esthetician License?

If you put the time in to earn a Michigan esthetician license, there are many ways it can pay off for you. Some estheticians focus on specialized facial services in local spas, including microdermabrasion, chemical peels, laser resurfacing, and facials.

Others offer full body skin care services like fat loss wraps, detox mud packs, and whole-body exfoliation. Each spa has its own list of services and its own salon culture, so you can find out what you love most about esthetics and look for employers that can help you make clients feel younger, healthier, and more beautiful.

According to O*Net, demand for skin care specialists may increase 9% by 2024 (2016). The average income for a Michigan esthetician is $29,970 per year (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2016).

In Michigan, licensed esthetics schools have to meet the training and curriculum requirements of the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.

Requirements for an Esthetician License in Michigan
