One of the keys to being a successful licensed esthetician is staying on top of the latest skin care treatments by getting additional training. Skin care treatments advance so quickly that you need to be fully committed to continuing your education if you want to be successful.
Some esthetician schools, like Salon Success Academy in California, have advanced training and certifications built directly into its esthetician program curriculum. This means when students graduate and pass their State Board exam, they can add some advanced skin care treatments to their service offerings, which is just what clients want to see!
Among the most popular skincare treatments provided by top-notch estheticians today are LED Light Facials. These facials use light therapy to treat a variety of skin conditions and signs of aging. At Salon Success Academy, we partner with LightStim, one of the most well-known names in LED Light Facials
But what is an LED Light Facial? During a light therapy treatment, licensed estheticians use a device that emits UV-free, beneficial light rays that penetrate the skin and are absorbed by the skin cells. The light rays help increase collagen production, reduce inflammation, speed healing, increase circulation, and destroy acne-causing bacteria.

Esthetician students at Salon Success Academy become fully trained in light therapy as part of their esthetics program. A LightStim handheld device, the leading light therapy equipment for skin care professionals, is even included in the esthetician student kit. LightStim educators also come to the school regularly to teach students about LED light therapy and the latest treatment techniques that ensure clients are getting the best results.
The esthetician kit at Salon Success Academy comes fully loaded with devices and products that licensed estheticians are using out in the field every day. The kit includes Bioelements skin care products, a Satin Smooth waxing kit, a VIP professional makeup kit, various brush sets, an essential oil kit, and much more!
