Esthetician Schools and Careers in Atlanta

Atlanta is a great place to make an impact as an esthetician. One big reason is the sun: Atlanta sees about 217 days of it per year. Without proper protection, that beautiful beacon in the sky can do quite a lot of harm. WalletHub ranks Atlanta 88th out of the 150 largest cities in the U.S. for skin health. While that's generally the middle of the pack, Atlanta's pollution and smoking ranking is 141, and skin cancer rates clocked in at 103. This translates to ample opportunities for estheticians—not only those who work in beauty but those who work in dermatologists' and oncologists' offices as medical estheticians.
