“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!”

“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.”

Experience the MedSpa Difference

If you want to become a licensed esthetician, our 600-hour esthetics course under the Minnesota Board of Cosmetology can help you gain the knowledge you need to become a licensed skincare professional.

As a student at our esthetics school, you can expect a detailed and hands-on education with small class sizes, as we only allow 12 students per class. We keep class sizes small to give more opportunities for students to work one-on-one with our experienced instructors.

Our students do so much more than just read out of the textbook!

We want to prepare you to be a licensed esthetician or dive deeper into your education with our Advanced Practice Esthetics program and ultimately our Laser Program to help make you stand out from other estheticians and have the freedom to work where you can thrive. Potential careers range from being a makeup artist at your favorite spa to working at a dermatology or plastic surgeon’s office!

Use Professional Equipment

While tools aren’t everything, it is so important to use professional equipment while learning skincare. Understanding the tools and how they can be used to create stunning results on each client can make a huge difference.

Plus, the way we have designed our kits makes it possible to use your tools after graduation after sitting for the state board and becoming a licensed esthetician. The beauty of our skincare products is that you can label them as your personal brand after graduation! We want to make it as easy as possible to help you start your new career.

Start the Enrollment Process

If you’re ready to make a change in your career and your life, the first step is to schedule a tour of our school! See the facilities, get to know the instructors and see if the culture of our school is a good fit for you.

You won’t get the same experience at other esthetics schools!

As part of the tour, you can get a better understanding of what requirements you need to meet, as we require our students to have proof of high school graduation or a GED.

If you are out of state and want to see if MedSpa is right for you, give us a call at 952.681.2167 and may be able to set up a phone consultation.
