Employment of skincare specialists is projected to grow 12 percent from 2014 to 2024, faster than the average for all occupations.
The increase in employment reflects demand for new services being offered, such as minisessions (quick facials at a lower cost) and mobile facials (making house calls). In addition, the desire among many women and a growing number of men to reduce the effects of aging and to lead a healthier lifestyle through better grooming, including skin treatments for relaxation and well-being, should result in employment growth.
Job opportunities should be good because of the growing number of beauty salons and spas. Those with related work experience should have the best job opportunities.
