I am a new grad BSN and my career has started me in a derm office doing laser phototherapy and I am enjoying it! I would like to further my education in aesthetics but I'm unsure of what direction to take as far as certification or licensing. There is a college of medical aesthetics in newport, ca that offers an 18 week course that covers all lasers, facials and injectables and you get a certificate, or they offer a 4 day workshop. I am wondering though if getting an esthetician license through Bellus and then becoming licensed for the state board is better? Both directions are expensive and I want to make sure I go the route that will benefit me the most and is legitimate! Any suggestions would be appreciated!
