Whether graduates are looking to become a skincare specialist, or an Aveda educator, they can rely on the training they received at Aveda Institute Maryland. Our esthetics program can prepare students, from day one, to be a trained skincare professional.

We use Aveda brand skin products to encourage overall wellness during our treatments. These products use the power of plants and modern science to allow our students to create a custom experience for every guest. A skincare line that caters to individuals’ uniqueness.

About Our Program

Our program includes in-depth instruction on theory, practice, and a variety of clinical studies on skin care. We give all students instruction using Aveda products, so clients can receive the full Aveda Spa Experience. We offer each student hands-on work, reading assignments, quizzes, live demonstrations, and practice in the lab. Our goal is for students to be 100 percent knowledgeable on all-things skin care and be well-practiced in the spa.

The Path of an Esthetician

While our training can make a student an ideal candidate to practice under the Aveda brand salons and spas, students can specialize. Here are a few careers that esthetics graduates may consider:

  • Facial/Skin Care Specialist
  • Waxing Specialist
