Esthetician Schools and Careers in Tampa

If you’re passionate about skin health, Tampa, St. Petersburg, or Sarasota are great places to make your mark as an esthetician. Florida is known as the Sunshine State for a reason, but that can come at a price. Not only can frequent sun exposure age your skin, but it can also lead to skin cancer, which brings opportunities for estheticians to make a notable difference in Floridians' skin and personal health. While working at a spa or salon is always an option, you can also help dermatologists to promote good skin health or with oncologists to help patients mitigate skin damage from chemotherapy and prevent more harmful skin cancers.

The future prospects for estheticians in Tampa are as bright as the Florida sun. With the fourth highest-level of employment rate of estheticians, also called “skincare specialists,” you can’t go wrong in Florida with this career where CareerOneStop forecasts a 19% growth in the field between 2016 and 2026. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, estheticians in Tampa and St. Petersburg made an average of $35,370 annually, or $17.01 per hour; those in Sarasota earned $35,910, or $15.15 per hour, that same year.
