Esthetician Schools and Careers in Phoenix

It’s a great time to become an esthetician in Phoenix, Arizona. The city offers the sixth-highest level of employment for estheticians in the nation, with an estimated 1,400 skin care specialists working in the area.

It’s no wonder that estheticians are in high demand in Phoenix. The city is known for its extreme temperatures, even for Arizona, and reaches at least 100 degrees Fahrenheit more than 100 days each year. The harsh arid climate, combined with the number of high-ozone pollution days the city experiences, can lead to higher instances of sun damage to the skin. In fact, in 2013, Everyday Health rated it the second-worst city in the U.S. for skin care and premature aging.
