Students in Penrose Academy's Esthetics Program use theory and clinical practice to learn what they need to succeed as an esthetician. From scientific concepts about cells, metabolism, bacteriology, human anatomy and physiology, to best practices in medical esthetics, customized skin therapies, hair removal, and facial treatments, Penrose Academy stresses the basics as well as advanced education.

Penrose Esthetics graduates will leave the program with a deep knowledge of medical esthetics, dermaplaning, peels, waxing, makeup techniques, facials and spa business.

All Penrose Academy Esthetics students spend time in one of two Student Spas, interacting with and servicing guests in a real-world setting. The Student Spa is open to the public, and includes a professional setting with 22 treatment beds, a makeup studio and skin bar.
