Careers as a Skincare Full Specialist

When you train to become a skincare full specialist, you’ll learn proper skincare techniques and treatments, body wrapping, hair removal, waxing, aromatherapy, makeup artistry and nail artistry – all valuable skills to help people look and feel their best. These skills are in high demand, and there are a number of career options that you can pursue once you have your Full Specialist with Spa Services diploma. You’ll also be able to work in a range of places, including spas, resorts, salons, entertainment venues, wellness centers and medi-spas. Check out some career possibilities below.


Estheticians understand different skin types, recognize common skin issues, and provide a range of treatments for their clients including facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, light treatments and more. These skincare treatments can address different issues such as aging skin, acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and redness. Estheticians help people achieve smoother, softer, more radiant skin.

Salon/Spa Owner

Getting a degree as a full specialist can put you on the path to owning your own spa or salon. You can start by offering your own skin care, makeup and nail services, and grow and hire more people as demand increases to create a full-service salon or spa. If you’ve always dreamed of becoming an entrepreneur and having control over your own business, opportunity awaits!

Skincare Consultant

Help people love the skin they are in by working as a skincare consultant. Whether you work in a retail store, a salon or other location, you can teach people how to care for their skin, recommend what products and treatments should work best for their skin type, and even perform makeovers to transform someone’s look.

Makeup Artist

Makeup artists ensure that people look beautiful for weddings, proms, fashion shows, photography sessions, galas and other special events. They may also be hired to do theatrical or film makeup, sometimes using special effects, prosthetics and more to create special characters or even monsters, aliens, or other creatures.

Skincare Sales Representative

A skincare sales representative works for a specific skincare brand, store or a product manufacturer, and works directly with potential customers to help drive sales. You need to fully understand the products you’re selling, what works best for different skin types, and be able to provide helpful information and answer questions. You may sell products directly to consumers, or to estheticians, dermatologists, and retail stores and salons.
