Ok. Click on "user cp" at upper left corner of yellow bar. Then click on "user options", scroll down to Private Messaging and put a check mark in box next to "enable private messaging". And remember to go to bottom and save changes.
This will allow member to private message you about information that they don't want to be public to all. And you don't have to give out your email address.
If you look at top of screen on far right side, you will notice blue words saying private messages. That tells you when you have one.
See if you can do that
I went to Arizona Esthetics Institute in Glendale. It was around $10,000. There are other schools too, but I checked them out and decided went with my gut feeling and it payed off. I passed state board with no problem and was glad I went there. They also run a school for permanant makeup too, but I couldn't afford that at the time, or now. I am waiting to get surgery for some problems I'm having and am not working yet.
You mentioned a friend having gone for certification for injectables like Botox etc. Where did they go and how much does it cost? Everything seems really expensive from what I can see on internet.
Oh, and it is a flourishing career. Medi spas are cropping up all over and that would be another option for an rn esthetician.
