We’re here to help you pursue an education that you can be passionate about when it works best for you.
We want our students to be successful after completing their esthetics program at Xenon Academy, and that’s why we strive to give the best education possible. Our esthetics program can provide an in-depth understanding of different disciplines and techniques to help students be flexible in their careers. In addition to mastering many kinds of spa facials, students in our program learn waxing practices, body treatments, dermaplaning, and makeup skills.
It’s not only necessary for estheticians to learn about application techniques, but students should also know about the science that goes behind it. This additional knowledge can help you become a beauty professional that people trust. The esthetics program at Xenon Academy provides education in physiology and basic chemistry. These can help students gain a complete understanding of skin treatments, technology, daily care,proper protection, and why they can be important for a successful career in esthetics..
The esthetics training at Xenon Academy begins by providing valuable introductory skin care basics with advanced procedures introduced later to help our students gradually build upon their beauty knowledge. Students spend their first four weeks in a classroom setting learning the core skills needed to become a professional esthetician. Next, in addition to advanced treatment classes, our students practice esthetics treatments on clients in the student spa. Here are some of the topics that we cover during the esthetics program:
- Skin Resurfacing
- Preventive & Corrective Procedures
- The Art of Cosmetics
- Spa Body Treatments
- Spa and Social Media Marketing
- Client Communication
- Income Strategies
We know that financing your dreams can be a big investment. At Xenon Academy, we believe that your goals are worth pursuing and you shouldn’t be stopped from pursuing them because of financial roadblocks. That’s why we offer financial aid to students who qualify. Both unsubsidized and subsidized loans as well as Pell Grants are some of the financial options available. If you want to learn more about what financial aid options could be available to you, then contact us and we’d be happy to answer your questions.
The Business Side of Beauty
Most estheticians have the opportunity to manage their own book of business and grow their client base. This can be intimidating for people who have never learned how to maintain client relationships and grow a business before. This is why we have implemented a strong business curriculum that teaches our students how to grow their business and be savvy entrepreneurs in addition to being talented estheticians!
Pivot Point® Legacy Partner
Xenon Academy is a proud Pivot Point® Legacy Partner School, which means that we have been partnered for over 30 years to provide our students with a curriculum provided by Pivot Point International. This educational curriculum is used by many beauty schools around the world, and for good reason. We’ve been partnered with Pivot Point International for all of these years because we believe in the quality of information they provide and the teaching methods utilized that give our students the tools to become successful. The curriculum is available online, which makes it easy and convenient for students to access the information they need when they need it.
Salon Fundamentals® is a part of the curriculum that includes student-friendly strategies combined with groundbreaking learning tools. This is designed to help students direct their thinking, improve memory, retain what they learn, and manage information. This helps our students build confidence in themselves as they develop their expertise in esthetics.
The Role of Outstanding Educators
The Pivot Point® education would be nothing without passionate educators to drive the principles home. Educators help students bridge what they learn in the classroom and what they do in the spa. Esthetics is an intensively hands-on career field, so our educators help students translate what they learn in their minds to what they do with their hands. Educators working with the Pivot Point® curriculum can help our students gain the academic and practical experience they need to become successful licensed estheticians!
