Employment of skincare specialists is expected to grow 25 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations.
The increase in employment reflects demand for new services being offered, such as mini sessions (quick facials at a lower cost) and mobile facials (making house calls). In addition, the desire among women and a growing number of men to reduce the effects of aging and to lead a healthier lifestyle through better grooming should result in employment growth, including skin treatments for relaxation and well-being.
Job opportunities should be good due to the growing number of beauty salons and spas. Those with experience are expected to have the best job prospects.
