Take Your Esthetics Education a Step Further

If you’re already a licensed esthetician and want to learn more advanced techniques in the clinical side of skincare, you may want to consider our Advanced Practice esthetics program. Our 500 Advanced Practice course is filled with advanced modalities! Who better to learn it from then the team that has the most experience and relationships from being the pioneers of advanced esthetics?

We have been teaching microneedling and medical grade chemical peels for 5 years! We have exclusive relationships with companies that have only partnered with our school.

“I attended Medspa Institute of America for both my esthetician and AP license. Both programs are hands on which I loved! I also loved how the class sizes are small! The staff is wonderful! They are always there for you during your time at school and even after you graduate! You also get the opportunity to use some really nice products and technology that you wouldn't get to use at other schools!”

Megan L.

“I started the Esthetician program in August 2021 and will soon be graduating from the Advanced Esthetics program. The faculty here (Ly, Bre, Brittney) are so insanely knowledgeable and talented- I feel so lucky to have had the pleasure to learn from them. If you have the opportunity to learn from successful practitioners, you will be sure to follow in their footsteps and become a success yourself.”

Learn Clinical Skincare

As part of our Advanced Practice Esthetics program, students can expect to build on their current foundation of skincare with more clinical techniques.

We have exclusive relationships with Glytone, Allergan and needling devices, meaning that many of the products and equipment used at our school aren’t available at most esthetics schools! You can expect to learn Glytone, which is one of the most common chemical peels used in dermatologist clinics.

In your student kit you will receive Minnesota’s most clinical skincare kit designed by Dr. Tholen!

Other key features of an education at MedSpa Institute of America is that we keep the curriculum hands-on and class sizes small. This means as you practice more advanced techniques in our student spa, you can get more personalized experience from our passionate instructors who want to set you up for success.
