Waxing and IPL Hair Removal FASH 9228


Our Waxing and IPL Hair Removal course teaches you waxing and intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal techniques for both the face and the body through a combination of theory and hands-on practice. Examine hair histology, client screening and IPL principles, and acquire the skills used to determine a client's needs and recommend post-care treatments. Also learn how to perform eyebrow and eyelash tinting services. Gain an understanding of the importance of proper hygiene and sanitation in relation to both your work areas and your equipment. Classes occasionally feature industry guest speakers and representatives from skin care product lines who help you become more familiar with the esthetics industry. Practice what you learn by performing services – on classmates, models and clients – in the classroom and in the school spa. Public health standards, personal appearance, professionalism, etiquette and communication are integral parts of this course.
