NCEA Certified is the professional status awarded to a skin care professional that has met the competency standards as set-forth by NCEA's 1200 Hour Esthetician Job Task Analysis. It represents the highest skin care credential available in the United States and adherence to the code of ethics of the profession.

Those who choose to become NCEA Certified do so for a variety of reasons, including:
  • Commitment to career and the industry.
  • Desire to challenge skill level and knowledge base.
  • Commitment to personal growth and continuous learning.
  • A move to another state where the hours of training are higher than what they received in school.
  • State endorsement/reciprocity requirement to attain advanced licensure.


  • The reasons also vary with a person's age, longevity in the field and future plans. An added benefit is that NCEA Certified estheticians on average, earn more than their noncertified counterparts. Those who are committed to personal growth are more likely to have the self-confidence to seek increasing levels of responsibility and, therefore, higher incomes. Regardless of the reason — it's a good investment in yourself. The NCEA Certified designation could mean the difference between getting or missing out on your next promotion or position. Certification better prepares the skin care professional for today's job market and helps you be better equipped to respond to the constantly changing demands and advances within our profession.

    Are you calling yourself a medical esthetician?
    Skin Inc.
    As attorneys specializing in medical spa law, we dedicate a large part of our practice traveling to different conferences and seminars to educate and inform medical spa professionals about the do's and don'ts of their industry. And it seems that every time the rules and regulations governing medical spas are presented to a group of estheticians, the first thing they tell us is that they are actually "medical estheticians" in order to denote that they work in a medical spa setting. Our response? You may be breaking the law.

    MARKETING 101


    Customer feedback is a pot of gold
    Direct Marketing News
    Are you making it easy for customers to share their opinions about your brand? Are you focusing on channels that patrons can use to voice and share their thoughts? As a retailer, do you welcome feedback and reward your customers in return for their feedback? Because all the hoopla about customer experience and the intense push and pull to create the most engaging interactions, is pointless if you're not tapping into what the customer really thinks about you.

    How to use email marketing to segment customers, generate loyalty
    Small Business Trends
    You may have heard the saying "the money is in the list" and the first place your mind may have went is to thinking that a bigger list is better. While this is mostly true, it isn't completely true. Having a bigger list will definitely yield results, but it's the engagement level of your list; the degree to which they do what you ask them to do — that is even more important and profitable.

    What's the story on learning styles?
    Faculty Focus
    We have this tendency in higher education to throw babies out with bath water. It derives from dualistic thinking. Either something is right or wrong, it's in or out, up or down. As mature thinkers, we disavow these dichotomous perspectives, but then find their simplicity hard to resist. They make complicated things easy.
