Why Choose the Esthetic Sciences Program?
Esthetic Sciences is a field devoted to health and beauty. Specialists provide clients with specialized skin care treatments and recommendations, and that requires a tremendous level of knowledge, as well as a positive and engaging personality and devoted work ethic.
Esthetic Sciences students work with each other in class and real-world patients in CPTC's student-operated Esthetics Salon, offering the opportunity to see and treat a diverse set of skin types, preparing for careers in spas, salons, medical offices, medi-spas, and dermatology and plastic surgery offices.
This award-winning program ranks among the top in the state for its training, hands-on learning opportunities and one of the highest pass rates at state boards. If you have a passion for health and beauty and a strong work ethic, consider esthetic sciences.
