School Accreditation

You must attend a school that is approved by your state to provide training in the discipline you want to practice. Check with the school and the state board to be sure that your program of study will prepare you for any applicable state licensure.

Esthetician training teaches students to perform various facial treatments, skin analysis, chemical peels, spa treatments for hair removal or waxing, spray tanning, make up application including spray-on cosmetics, and microdermabrasion therapy. Students take courses in ethics, salon practices, hygiene, and safety. After training is completed, students take written and practical exams. They may then receive their esthetician license from the Illinois State Board of Cosmetology.
