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, ethnicites and genders. We create community.

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, many of our staff were laid off. We are operating with a smaller staff at this time, and look forward to their return when our school is able to operate fully on-campus with model clients receiving services.
