About this Program

Esthetics is a non-medical treatment of the skin, its disorders and function. Instruction includes the sciences of anatomy, dermatology and chemistry as related to skin care; electricity light therapy; sanitation and safety procedures; Minnesota statutes and laws which pertain to the regulation of the practice of skin care; and elementary service skills. The Board of Barbering and Cosmetologists, which is the cosmetology licensing body, requires 600 hours of clinical time in order to become licensed in the State of Minnesota. Upon completion of 600 hours and passing of the state exam, a license will be issued.
