On a Budget? Consider Getting Skin Treatments at an Esthetics School


As an esthetician and someone who has performed thousands of facials and skin treatments for over 25 years now, I’m a huge believer that using skin care products at home can only do so much to give your skin a desired result. Particularly with conditions like brown spotswrinkles`, large poresacne scarringclogged pores and blemishes, you really must consider getting a professional treatment such as a chemical peel or facial with an esthetician to help improve the look and feel of your skin. 

There are many places you can go to get these types of procedures. Examples include skin care spas (like Renée Rouleau in Dallas), medical spas, doctors offices and salons. However, the cost of most treatments will be upward of $100. So does that mean that you can’t benefit from getting extra help with your skin if it’s not in the budget? Nope. Not at all.

Consider having a skin treatment at your local esthetics school. While the students aren’t licensed estheticians just yet, they are closely supervised by their instructors who should have plenty of experience regarding the services being offered.

Here are a few examples of skin care services available at an esthetics school.

Express Facial (30 min.) $25.00
Classic European Facial (60 min.) $40.00
MicroCurrent Skin Firming Treatment (60 min.) $40.00
MicroCurrent Skin Firming Express (30 min.) $30.00
Microdermabrasion (60 min.) $50.00
Glycolic Acid Treatment (30 min.) $45.00

Salicylic Acid Peel (30 min.) $45.00
Jessner Application (30 min.) $45.00
Customized Peel (30 min.) $45.00
Microdermabrasion (1 hr.) $50.00

As you can see, all treatments are $50 or less. So if you’re not getting the results you desire at home and money is tight, you might want to contact your local esthetics school to see what services they can offer to help with your skin.

Regardless of where you go to get your skin treated, be sure to schedule a consultation beforehand to determine if that facility is the best fit for you.
