Esthetics Technology Program

Estheticians are specialists in the cleansing, beautification, and preservation of the largest organ of the human body; the skin. This “skin science” program offered by Tri-County Community College teaches students to treat not just the face and neck, but the entire body.

The Esthetics Technology curriculum provides competency-based knowledge, scientific/artistic principles, and hands-on fundamentals associated with the art of skin care. Working in a fully-equipped, simulated salon environment, students will learn about facials, hair removal, body treatments, and proper application of make-up.

Course work also includes instruction in all phases of business/human relations, as well as product knowledge and other related topics. The program will prepare students to take the North Carolina Cosmetology State Board licensing exam, which will qualify them to work as estheticians in beauty and skin-care salons, or as a platform artist.
