Preparing You for a Career in Cosmetic Therapy

The Cosmetic Therapy Training Center is proud to offer the only licensed cosmetic therapy training program in the state of Ohio.  Under the professional guidance of renowned cosmetic innovator and aesthetician, Vickie Mickey, students receive both didactic and clinical instruction in electrolysis, laser hair removal, and facial massage.

We are dedicated to providing our students with the technical and professional skills necessary to pursue a thriving career or private practice upon graduating from the program. You will be eligible to seek licensure and employment, gain membership in national professional medical organizations, and advance your career through continued education.

Classroom Right Inside the Clinic

The Training Classroom is located inside the Cosmetic Therapy Center in Columbus, Ohio where patients actively receive treatment and services. We believe it’s important for you to learn in a real healthcare environment and work to integrate our advanced students into the patient care processes at the Therapy Center. All instruction takes place in clinical areas designed with a complete professional station, including sterilization and sanitation areas.

The Training Facility is conveniently located off of major bus routes and provides private parking. Our student lounge offers a comfortable place to spend time before and after courses and is situated adjacent to the patient waiting room to encourage students to interact with our patients. Our tools and equipment are all state-of-the-art technologies that our students learn to operate with hands-on practice and guidance.
