Overview

Skincare specialists usually take an approved cosmetology program. Some high schools offer vocational training. Most people, however, receive their training from a postsecondary vocational school. Newly hired specialists sometimes receive on-the-job training, especially when working with chemicals. Those who are employed in a medical environment may also receive on-the-job training, often working alongside an experienced skincare specialist.

After completing an approved cosmetology program, skincare specialists take a written and practical exam to get a license. Licensing requirements vary by jurisdiction, so those interested should contact the appropriate local agency. Many regions offer continuing education seminars and programs designed to keep skincare specialists current on new techniques and products.
