The Esthetics Program includes business practices, facial massage, electrical facial treatments, hair removal, make-up, and body wraps and other related subjects necessary to pass the State Board examination and for competency in job entry-level positions in Esthetics or a related career field.

Your time at VskiCosmetology School for the esthetics program consists of classroom curriculum instruction, advanced classroom and clinic learning, clinic service learning experience, and where dreams come true found in your syllabus provided in your welcome packet.


VskiCosmetology School’s Esthetics Program, fully accredited, unique 12 week “quick paced” program, is currently offered as an out of pocket program or apply for Financial Aid for the the SC required 450 hours as opposed to the 600 hours to make a long term program that every other program typically is. 


This in high demand course has been a huge success and the feedback from graduates loving the 3 months, 450 hrs, and done method has us maxing out enrollment each start date!  Don't wait as this is the only esthetics program around not making you attend and pay for an extra 150 hours that aren't SC required.


If you decide to do cosmetology, you get all 3 licenses, now for that, something to consider.  I always say if you even remotely have interest in hair and nails then consider getting the full monty!!! Or even if you plan to be a business owner and do esthetics but hire others for hair and nails, it’s so important from a business perspective to know what is required of your employees and how to help them as well as it opens up so many more doors for you in the industry as it is always evolving and the elite like professionals with a lot of versatility. Just a thought. If you hate hair and skin though, totally go with esthetics.
