ABOUT AESTHETICS INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION

AIA (Aesthetics International Association) was founded in 1972 as the first American aesthetics association. AIA was founded to bring aesthetic professionals together to network, share knowledge, and gather in numbers to establish a presence in the industry. In the early ‘80s, we began our mission to “Raise the standards of education and public awareness of the aesthetics industry.” At that time, there was no separate aesthetic licensing in America. While we don’t take credit for establishing state licensing, our strong membership, leadership, and years of petitioning for such, undoubtedly had an impact.

 

In addition to advocating to raise the standards through separate licensing, we also created an organization dedicated to providing aesthetic professionals with much needed tools and resources for their careers. We have provided education and career growth opportunities for thousands of aestheticians along their journeys. We continue that commitment with even more educational events, classes, workshops, and webinars than ever before!

 

Currently, the AIA membership is made up of industry founders and thousands of experienced, educated aestheticians who constitute the best of professionalism. AIA is of aestheticians, by aestheticians, and for aestheticians. We have pioneered the past and have bold plans for the future. Join AIA today so we can help one another grow, learn, and direct the future of the aesthetics industry. Let’s work together to shape a better tomorrow!
