If you want a rewarding and in-demand career, medical aesthetics might be the perfect path for you. Medical aesthetics is a booming field, given Service Canada’s highest possible rating for employment outlook. The increasing importance placed in physical appearance is resulting in significant growth for personal care services. If you want to start your career in this exciting occupation then you’ll need to complete some training first. But how do you choose the right beauty college? Flexible options, small class sizes, and quick program completion times are all top concerns, but how does a truly standout beauty school offer an unparalleled education? Read on to find out which signs you should look for:

1. Choose Medical Aesthetics Courses that Combine Theoretical Class Time With Hands-On Learning

Both theory and hands-on learning are important. Without theory, you won’t know how procedures like laser hair removal or body contouring work. That’s why it’s important to choose a beauty college that takes the time to carefully provide students with an in-depth and detailed understanding of aesthetic treatments.

At the same time, though, hands-on training is important too. You’ll need to feel comfortable working with equipment and completing procedures on patients – which is easiest to learn in a hands-on clinic environment. That’s why top beauty schools like IBI have clinics located right on campus. Students get to practice techniques on each other and members of the community. That way, by the time students have completed their 8 month program in medical aesthetics, they’re ready to seamlessly transition into the workforce.

2. Choose Medical Aesthetics Courses That Teach You to Use State-of-the-Art Equipment

To help you get the best possible start for your new career, it’s important that you learn to use the latest and best equipment. At the International Beauty Institute, for example, students learn to use some of the most advanced aesthetic laser equipment in the world! At IBI, you’ll learn how to use the following world-class equipment:
  • Asclepion MedioStar Next
  • Asclepion TattooStar Effect
  • Energist UltraPlus VPL
  • Venus Freeze RF
By becoming familiar and developing hands-on skills with each machine, you’ll develop the cutting-edge know-how you’ll need to stand out to local employers – paving the way to a bright career start.

3. Choose a Supportive Beauty College With Friendly Instructors

Whether you’ve recently graduated from high school or have been out of school for several years, the support of a caring instructor can make all the difference in your education. Kind and friendly instructors can help soothe any back-to-school nerves you might have. They can also help you feel comfortable asking for extra clarification if you feel unsure about a lesson in one of your medical aesthetics courses. And, by providing extra guidance and attention, a caring instructor can help you achieve your true potential.

As International Beauty Institute (IBI) graduate and owner of Surya Med Spa Neha remembers: “I had some of the best teachers, very knowledgeable and willing to go out of their way to help you out. I successfully opened a Med Spa since attending this school, and they helped guide me through the process! Thank you guys for everything you’ve done, couldn’t thank you all enough! Definitely the best choice I made!!”
