OUR TAKE ON EDUCATION
Traditionally, education has been a textbook and classroom instruction, with a mass amount of your "on the job" experiences really shaping who you become within your vocation. We embrace the textbook and classroom, but also provide one on one instruction with live demonstrations, hands-on work on models. We share our own experiences, our favorite tips and tricks, trade secrets, and provide lifelong mentoring relationships with our students. We believe that our personal educations are ones to share and that by sharing and educating we lift each other up! Our education doesn't end in the classroom. We provide on-going support for our students as well as discounted prices on other classes. Once you become part of the AMAPCA family, we want you to have access to as much education as affordably as possible!
The difference between Aestheticians and Medical Aestheticians
Aestheticians are licensed professionals who are experts in maintaining and improving skin. An aesthetician's general scope of practice is limited to the epidermis (the outer layer of skin). Aestheticians work in many different environments such as salons, day spas, skin care clinics, med spas and private practices. Aestheticians may also specialize in treatments such as microdermabrasion, microcurrent (also known as non-surgical "face lifts"), cosmetic electrotherapy treatments (galvanic current, high frequency), LED (light emitting diode) treatments, ultrasound/ultrasonic (low level), and mechanical massage (vacuum and g8 vibratory). The medical aesthetician must undergo special advanced training for treatments such as laser hair removal, photo rejuvenation, IPL, microneedling, PRP, injectables and advanced chemical peels. While Medical Aesthetics is not recognized in the state of Idaho with licensing through our state board, there are many Advanced Aesthetics Certifications you can achieve.
