Southeastern Esthetics Institute has added even more elective options for students to take while they are training to become a licensed aesthetician. In addition to the phenomenal program Southeastern Esthetics Institute already has, they have started incorporating different, optional electives that students can take. The electives include a variety of six-hour makeup, microchanneling, eyelash extensions, radio frequency skin tightening classes, and more.
There is one class that students and spa professionals have the option to take that has a positive impact on them and those they treat. Southeastern Esthetics Institute has partnered with Oncology Spa Solutions to provide different, three-day trainings on treating those who have or have had cancer. It is dedicated to educating students to safely, compassionately, and confidently care for their clients while the are experiencing cancer and the side effects of treatments.
Southeastern Esthetics Institute prides itself on consistently challenging students to push their boundaries and expectations of themselves to make them better aestheticians. In the most recent oncology class, Jessica Cooley, oncology trainer, stated that, “Aestheticians, when properly trained, can prepare, protect, and soothe skin conditions that may arise from cancer and its many treatments. No client should ever be turned away due to a cancer diagnosis.” Jessi Waller, a student who took the course was enthralled with the program. “Everyone can relate on the topic of skin care because everyone is either dry, oily, combination, acne prone, and so forth; however, not everyone can relate on the topic of cancer. Without the knowledge that this amazing course gives you, aestheticians would not know how much you can help someone through our power of touch and care. The most significant part of the oncology aesthetics course was how easy we as aestheticians can modify our treatments in order to take care of clients who have gone through such a traumatic experience like a cancer diagnosis, chemo, and radiation therapy. Aestheticians are always taught that cancer is a contraindication and, even though that is true, with this education and certification, I now value that I don’t have to turn anyone away.”
Overall, Southeastern Esthetics Institute strives to create the best, most informed, talented aestheticians in the industry. In doing so, Southeastern Esthetics Institute hopes to send students into the professional world where they too can give back to the community around them, doing their very best in what they are trained in.
