Founded in 2012, Spectrum Advanced Aesthetics offers comprehensive standard and advanced medical aesthetic training for those who want to work in the field of aesthetics. Students begin with classroom instruction. They work on each other, then family and friends, while advancing in their knowledge and abilities to perform services in our clinic floor and med spa at a significantly discounted rate to the public.

Students’ experience is enhanced because they are working with real-life situations, consultation plans, and treatment strategies. Students pass state certification exams to verify their knowledge. Students are better estheticians and laser technicians when they leave Spectrum and the consumer is safer as well.

Our Values: We practice integrity, doing the right thing for our clients, students and staff. We believe in social responsibility, contributing more. We believe in equality and inclusivity for all races, religions, ethnicities and genders. We create community.

Mission and Values Statement:

Spectrum Advanced Aesthetics’ mission is to elevate the esthetics industry and its future leaders through a comprehensive, inclusive, industry acclaimed education and hands-on training experience. We achieve this through our commitment to prepare unlicensed students for state exam utilizing the real world experience of our educators, state-of-the-art equipment and in-depth skincare product knowledge, trending and consumer demanded skincare treatments, ensuring a successful start in the industry. We continue our support well into graduates’ careers with access to advanced study courses, resources and mentorship.

Our Vision is to exceed the criteria for Oregon’s esthetic licensure offering the hours of theory and practical fundamental skills, in a competency based standard esthetics program and a 500 hour advanced esthetics program. Our plan includes offering training on additional career skills that will be of value to the graduate on completion of the program while also preparing the professional for advanced education, job placement and industry leadership.

Our Culture is developed with an education team of instructors, administration and support staff that embrace people and technology, are flexible with change, have high standards for quality and like to find the positive side to life.

Spectrum is the foremost Advanced Medical Aesthetics school for Aestheticians in the Pacific Northwest. Contact us a call to arrange a tour or for more aesthetics training courses information.

Due to COVID-19, we are NOT seeing the public in our medspa. When Washington County has been determined to be at LOW RISK for COVID infection, we will reopen our medspa to clients. Until then, students get their hands-on experience by working on each other in our small classes and on bringing in a model from home. Our Client Services Manager will begin calling people to make appointments and we will post on social media. Until then, stay healthy and safe. We look forward to seeing you again!
