    There is no “fluff” in our esthetics program.  Students will need to work hard to learn the skills necessary for a successful career in skin care.  We purposely decided not to cut corners at the expense of our esthetician students. We choose to use the “CIMA” online learning platform provided by Milady / Cengage (the largest beauty school online learning platform in the world) because it is proven to increase student’s knowledge retention and success in the course. CIMA is always up to date with the most current version of the textbook.  CIMA allows our instructors to design the course material to best move you through our program. We have uploaded substantial supplemental learning materials, videos, pdfs etc. all the course material is available at all times, to all students online.

    Your supply kit includes a student membership with the Associated Skin Care Professionals (ASCP) and your student insurance policy.

    Some schools have closed their public clinic for students to practice the various procedures. This is substantially easier for the beauty schools to manage, but we feel it comes at the expense of students.  At those schools students only practice on fellow students. As a result students are likely to only experience a limited number (and repeatedly) the same skin conditions, rather then learning and dealing with the vast variety of clients who come to public student clinics.

    Skin care is a hands on profession and is best taught and learned hands on.  Students start working on each other early in the program.  Our philosophy is to have students study it in the textbook, quiz on the material at the start of each week, reinforce and supplement the theory with the instructor, followed by practice on your fellow students (student trades), finally bringing in your “test out” models to be approved to do the procedure in our public clinic.

    Regardless of where you go to school, the beauty business is an amazing profession that has so many ways a licensed esthetician can grow.  At Accent Beauty Academy we strived to design our program to pack as much into your fundamentals class as possible so you graduate with the skills necessary to succeed.

    Esthetician or Aesthetician? What is the difference?  Spelling only. The British use  “Ae” and Americans use “E”  Some beauty trade schools will also try to say “Ae” is more of a medical esthetician. 


    Students must be 16 years or older to enroll.

    A minimum of 4 students are required to run a class. (Maximum of 12 students per class)

    *Dress Code:  In class / clinic  Black Scrubs and black closed toed shoes.

Students who do not speak English as their primary language may request some additional time to take the written examination).  All students need to understand and have passable skills in English or Spanish depending on the class (reading, writing and speaking).
