Process of Licensure
An esthetician needs a license to perform Spa treatments for the skin. The licensing and certification is managed by individual states but for the most part the requirements are generally the same. The Virginia licensure requirements include:
*Completion of a State Approved Esthetics Program or an Apprenticeship
*Taking and Passing the State Esthetics License Examination
*Maintaining Esthetics Licensure
Formal Training vs. Apprenticeships
Most states require formal esthetician training through a licensed esthetic school or a school of cosmetology. However, the state of Virginia allows completion of an apprenticeship as fulfilling the training and education requirements to pursue licensure. Virginia also has a two-tier esthetician license. In addition to the standard esthetician there is a master esthetician license. A master esthetician is permitted to perform additional skincare services, such as:
*Medium-depth Chemical Peels
*Ultrasound and Laser Frequency Procedures
