Our Dedication to You

We are very proud of offering the best professional environment and course curriculum to our students when preparing them for their New York State Board Exam.

The three major skin care subjects covered are

  • Facials
  • Make up applications
  • Waxing

New York State requires a student successfully passes the 600-hour Esthetic course before taking the State Board Exam.


The word esthetics originates from the Greek word aesthetikos, which means perceptible to the senses. The primary role of an esthetician is to enhance and correct the beauty and health of the skin.

We encourage you to review our course outline and enrollment procedures. We are available for any additional questions and to schedule a visit of our skin care facilities.
