With roughly 2 million Instagram posts tagged #dermaplaning, ranging from videos of the procedure to before and after photos, this skincare procedure has gained major popularity among beauty enthusiasts. Dermaplaning thoroughly exfoliates the skin using a No. 10 surgical blade held at a 45-degree angle to gently scrape the outer layer of the skin which consists of dull, dead skin cells. Dermaplaning helps minimize imperfections, removes fine lines while improving texture (think silky smooth skin) and removes vellus hairs! Dermaplaning also increases product penetration, so your results are instantly visible.
This workshop covers all the techniques you need to know to begin offering this treatment as many clients are now opting for brow tinting as opposed to wearing make-up day-to-day, giving definition and creating the appearance of fuller brows.
Gua Sha is a massage technique using a patented white jade tool for facial and neck rejuvenation based on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) healing principles. This treatment is designed to relieve tension in the muscles of the face, boost blood circulation, and encourage lymphatic drainage to banish bloat. It helps break up fascia, the connective tissue that hugs muscles but can sometimes interfere with optimal circulation. The increase in circulation is said to increase hydration for that coveted youthful glow, and it even helps the skin to naturally purge blemish-causing dirt and oils.
A holistic facial is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses various massage techniques using tools and all-natural skincare products to help the skin fight internal and external factors that cause damage. At Atelier we offer advanced training for three types of holistic facial techniques: Facial Manual Sculpting & Toning, Facial Cupping and Cold Copper Spoon Therapy.
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent fibers that are attached to your natural eyelashes in order to make your lash fringe look longer, fuller, and darker. Individual lash extensions are applied to each of your natural eyelashes (one extension per natural eyelash) using a semi-permanent glue.
The Lymphatic System is the bodies’ internal cleanser. Performing Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) therapy increases the rate of detoxification and nourishment of the skin and underlying tissue. These effects continue after treatment because MLD clears congested tissue, vessels and lymph nodes enabling them to process inflammation and toxins more efficiently after treatment. MLD is deeply relaxing, tapping into the parasympathetic nervous system and balancing hormones. The benefits are skin health and rejuvenation, the maintenance of skin elasticity and a youthful appearance. It is helpful in managing acne, rosacea, puffiness, and edema after surgery.
The Brazilian Bikini Wax has remained one of the most popular styles of wax treatment, so much so, it has gained popularity among men and has been coined the “Manzilian.” Waxing has quickly become an essential aspect of the skin care profession demanding an increased need for skin care professionals trained in bikini and Brazilian bikini waxing exclusively for male clientele.
Lip Blush is a technique that gives a natural effect of enhanced lip shape and color. Using a soft application finding the color that best goes with your face shape and skin. This service has no down time as the swelling of the lips will go down within hours.
When it comes to skin rejuvenation, clients want the best. You’ve probably heard a lot about the rejuvenating effect of radio frequency and ultrasound, but did you know that combining these two modalities is safe for all skin types? The combined treatments are safe, and not only do they maximize results for antiaging, clearer, and smoother skin, but it also requires no downtime. These machines are great for use in the treatment room and for mobile services. Being able to provide clients with add-on services and treatments will not only maximize benefits for your clients that they will love, but combing treatments will also help you continue to grow your revenue stream.

I chose Atelier Esthetique because of their rating online. A past employee of mine also attended Atelier Esthetique and graduated and is currently working at a spa. The education at this school is great. Once I complete this program I hope to further my skills in the skin care industry and land my dream job and eventually work for myself and open a business.

Studying esthetics almost 10 years ago was the best decision of my life! I had been practicing law for 12 years, but I was very unhappy. So, I kept my job and started the part-time evening program to pursue my passion for skin care. I am currently in my 8th year of business as the owner of a top laser center in Midtown Manhattan.
