The Premier Esthetics course prepares students to work in a med-spa, salon or as a solo esthetician. In this program, students will be taught and held accountable to the CIDESCO standard with advanced esthetics and paramedical treatments.  

Premier Esthetics

This course prepares students to work in a med-spa, salon or as a solo esthetician. In this program, students will be taught and held accountable to the CIDESCO standard with advanced esthetics and paramedical treatments. ICE&M has refined the Premier Esthetics course over three decades by continuously adapting to advancements in the industry and the educational needs of our students. The education provided at ICE&M surpasses the standard set by local and regional benchmarkers. 

The 750-hour Premier Esthetics course is formatted into four sections – Esthetic Essentials, Theory and Advanced Practical, Clinical and 700 Club. Students spend the first three weeks in Esthetic Essentials learning all the steps of a basic facial. From there, students move to Theory and Advanced Practical and spend half of the day learning theory and the other half learning advanced treatments like microcurrent, ultrasound and microdermabrasion. Once students have completed the classroom education, they move to the clinic floor and spend five weeks performing services on clients and fellow students. By 700 hours, students will have completed all tests and required clinic floor credits and will start preparing for graduation. 700 Club at ICE&M is a recognition that a student has met all of the requirements of the Premier Esthetics program and is ready to take their final practical test. ICE&M recognizes this accomplishment with a ceremonial 700 Club pinning. 

Premier Esthetic students are required to complete a portion of their education through our online Distance Learning Fundamentals program. Students can complete the online class at home, on their own time, or on-campus after class hours. 

The Premier Esthetics course also prepares students for the CIDESCO Certificate in Aesthetics or Skin Care. After completing the ICE&M Premier Esthetics course, students may take a CIDESCO prep class and sit for the CIDESCO examination. The certificate sets estheticians up for a highly successful career in skin care, as it is the world standard  recognized at spas across the globe. 

Upon graduation from the Premier Esthetics course, students will not only be prepared to pass the state board examination, but will receive advanced esthetic certificates, an ICE&M diploma and a dermatology device.
