Advanced Practice Esthiology

Expand your esthetic skills with advanced training on the latest skin condition treatments, technologies and specialized procedures such as dermaplaning and microdermabrasion.

Go beyond the standard facials, waxing and body treatments of traditional esthiology with our Advanced Practice Esthiology certificate program.

AP estheticians are licensed professionals trained in advanced skincare treatments and technologies, products and ingredients, skin anatomy and physiology, and more. They are authorized to perform complex and individualized skincare services and procedures, above and beyond the scope of traditional estheticians.

Our 16-credit program includes instruction on dermaplaning, skin needling, advanced extractions, microdermabrasion, chemical peels and electrical energy treatments. Based on our Wadena campus, it includes classroom-based learning as well as a hands-on salon practicum.

The program is open to licensed estheticians and cosmetologists who wish to offer AP services. An Advanced Practice Esthetician license is a requirement in Minnesota.
