Program Overview

Skin Care Curriculum

Students study skin’s biology and physiology as well as the internal and external factors that cause skin cells to degenerate. This knowledge is essential to the development of in-office treatment plans and at-home skincare regimens designed to protect, repair, and rejuvenate skin tissue. The coursework covers theory; however, FAMA’s accent is on clinical training in order to graduate skincare specialists well-qualified to become the professional’s clients turn to improve and maintain their skin’s health.

Electrolysis & Laser Technician Curriculum

The coursework starts with a history of hair removal and goes on to review various hair removal techniques. The curriculum delves into the different methods of electrolysis, including Thermolysis, Galvanic Electrolysis, and the Blend Method. Of equal importance are the classroom sessions covering the physiology of skin tissue and the functions of the endocrine system, as this is where abnormalities cause excessive hair growth. Still, most of your class time will be spent in clinical labs working hands-on with electrolysis and laser equipment in order to develop the highest level of skill possible.
