Do You Need An Aesthetician Diploma To Offer Facial Treatments?

Practicing beauty treatment is my passion. While I was in high school, I voluntarily went to the Sylvie Hennessy Academy of Esthetics & Spa Therapies after school and on weekends. I eagerly started manicuring nails when I was 16 years old and began working in spas when I was 17. 

You would probably expect me to attend an aesthetician school right after high school and get a college certificate. However, I went to college for Business Administration. After my graduation, I ended up with a traditional office jobI from 9 to 5. Fortunately, in an extremely short time, I made a huge manoeuvre and went back to my true passion in the beauty industry. 

My personal story is solid proof that you don’t need an aesthetician certificate to start a beauty business. Please don’t get me wrong! I’m not saying it’s not worth having an aesthetics degree. No doubt a degree can increase your opportunities and make you get there faster. What I’m saying is, it is okay if you aren’t holding an aesthetician diploma but still want to grow in the beauty industry. In this case you can learn the recent beauty application techniques from private training facilities and dedicated instructors.

What Aesthetic Schools Can Give You? 

If you are interested in skincare, you can plan your career in spa facilities or simply become an entrepreneur. Performing what you are passionate about as a job is the smartest decision you can make. Plus, when you are interested in skincare, you should be ready to enjoy flexibility and satisfying income.

There is no doubt that you need to get a specialized education on the treatment you want to offer. Assisting people on their beauty routine sounds so exciting and pleasing. However it is intimidating if you don’t feel comfortable with your technique. An aesthetician diploma will give you extensive knowledge of skincare, various aspects of health and safety and vocational experience. On the other hand there are some cons you need to consider. 


Pros of Getting An Aesthetician Diploma

First thing first you will get a certificate or a diploma from an accredited cosmetology program. Most of the programs include skincare, nail care, waxing and spa management. These course will give you comprehensive theoretical and practical education. Some schools have their own spa under the college facility. This is a great opportunity for students to gain experience in a real spa setup.


Cons of Getting An Aesthetician Diploma

Majority of the college programs in aesthetics are 2 academic years long. Typically students are required to complete all courses in four semesters. Spending two full years might be downside for most of the people. College programs are quite expensive than the certificate programs. You will typically pay 10.000 to 15.000 CAD for the diploma program. If you recently checked the course schedule of the aesthetician programs, you should notice that they don’t teach the most popular beauty treatments like eyelash extension, microblading, microshading, and bb glow. This means you have to spend more money learning about these facial care trends.


Know Your Options: Aesthetician Diploma Or Certificate

Getting an aesthetician diploma is not your only option. You can always go with private beauty training facilities. If you want to specialize in skin treatments or simply want to add new services to your business our BB Glow, Microneedling and Mesotherapy course is for you.

Once you are certified as BB Glow, Microneedling and Mesotherapy Technician from Cosmopolitan Academy you will be able to work with dull skin textures, fine or deep wrinkles, acne scars and more.


What is BBGlow? 

BB glow is an intensive semi-permanent skin treatment. The facial involves microneedling a pigmented vitamin serum into your skin. Most people got confused by the one-year foundation. This facial is not compared to the one-year foundation treatment since it isn’t Health Canada Approved. 

BB Glow performs amazing things to the skin. First of all it brightens and balances the skin tone. Also, it is a very safe treatment since the serum doesn’t go deep under the epidermis. People with dull and uneven skin texture, can obtain enormous benefits from this facial. Also BB Glow is working great on the skin problems like freckles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, age spots, sun spots, early aging and lax skin.

Our BB Glow/Glass Skin course is both for beginners or advanced aestheticians. With our one-day course you gain in-depth knowledge about BB Glow and practical experience to start offering a BB Glow/Glass Skin treatment. 

If taking away with one technique is not satisfying enough, you should check our BB Glow/ Microneedling /Mesotherapy course. 

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy. This treatment involves the use of tiny needles to prick the skin. It is very effective in generating a new collagen and skin tissue for smoother and younger looking skin. Application can be done on the face and neck. It works well on deep and fine wrinkles, acne scars and any aging symptoms.

One of the advantages of this trio course that, you will learn three different facial techniques to fulfill different expectations of your clients.


What is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a technique that uses a series of superfine injections of vitamins, plant extracts and acids cocktails. The infusion of various nutritions rejuvenates the skin and stimulates the collagen production. It is a very effective treatment to support skin elasticity. 

Likewise microneedling, superfine needles work on the skin’s subcutaneous layer to correct the skin problems related with aging and damage. Mesotherapy can instantly improve the dull and tired skin look. This treatment fades acne scars, tightens and lifts the skin immediately. Also it reduces cellulite, improves wrinkles, treats alopecia, pigmentation issues by brightening and hydrating the skin.
