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.
Employment data also supports the exceptionally bright outlook for estheticians in Atlanta. CareerOneStop projects that the number of esthetician jobs in Georgia as a whole will increase by 16% between 2016 and 2026—a rate that is much faster than that for other types of jobs. Salary for skincare specialists in Atlanta is competitive at a median of $27,650 per year.
Georgia requires 1,000 hours of training and 2,000 hours of apprenticeship to qualify for licensure. The Atlanta esthetician programs listed on this page will help you fulfill those requirements. Take a look to see what else these programs have to offer.
