My passion for the skin care industry has spanned over 30 years, and as I take a moment to reflect on the technological and scientific advancements that have occurred, I can only say… what a an incredible journey! The available cosmeceuticals and equipment that the esthetician has in his/her armentarium is far beyond what I ever imagined there would be.

Industry rallies, Indiana bill withdrawn as battle continues
Modern Salon    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In light of the overwhelming response to a rallying cry from the professional beauty industry, Indiana Representative Dave Wolkins killed a state bill that would have eliminated licenses for cosmetologists and a handful of other professions. Wolkins, R-Winona Lake, says the stylists, estheticians and others who came to testify on the bill were so persuasive that their industry should be licensed and regulated, that he would not even ask for a vote on the legislation. Wolkin's decision came after professional beauty associations, including the National Coalition of Estheticians, Manufacturers/Distributors and Associations, the Professional Beauty Association, the American Association of Cosmetology Schools and Cosmetologists Chicago, rallied their members to speak out against the pending legislation.

Continuing education: What you need to know
NCEA Commission on Accreditation    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As a licensed professional it is your professional responsibility to know the laws, rules and regulations governing the practice of esthetics, and to be alert to changes in those requirements, and to be aware of how these apply to your practice. It is NCEA's position that all states that regulate esthetician licensees should mandate a minimum of 12-hours of continuing education credits before an esthetician can renew their license. Further, the NCEA Certified Professional also is required to maintain 12-COA-approved CEs to renew their credential every three years. Learn how these positions will affect your future. More

Presented by Pamela Matheny, MBA/HCM, CMPE, MoPM, CPC

How does the skincare specialist balance the competing needs of patients, employer and other staff, in today's busy medical practice in challenging economic times? Sometimes, meeting the needs of everyone involved can be frustrating and may affect patient satisfaction.

At the end of the webinar the SkinCare Specialist will be able to:
