Customer Reviews:

“The course content was great, it flowed effortlessly from one machine to the next completing a great facial with electrical equipment. Each machine was introduced with simplified, easy to understand explanations of the machine. The Instructor seems highly knowledgeable and a great communicator. I loved the ending where the Instructor took time to wish her client well and the constant professional attitude towards her client throughout. Thank you” Millissa R.

“The course was very informative and detailed. …Most schools do not go into as much detail with these machines. My school didn’t cover any of this except the mag light and steamer.” Renee K.

“I thought this course was excellent.  I have viewed many videos where Rita is the instructor.  She is easy to understand and very informative.  I have used many videos in the past with Rita as the instructor for my Esthetics students.  This is an excellent refresher video for estheticians and an excellent video for cosmetologists who are thinking about entering the skin care industry.  I would highly recommend this video.” Rhea K.
