Why choose Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics?

Consider the words aesthetician and esthetician! While the meanings are exactly the same, your cosmetology education could be exceptionally different, depending on what school you choose to attend. SWINA is not your typical beauty college! We offer the perfect blend of classical training, plus the ‘mind-body-wellness’ focus you find in today’s spas. We offer training in a wide variety of aesthetic techniques, including facials, make-up application, body treatments, and laser treatments. Skin care specialists made the top 100 list for best hiring jobs of 2016!

SWINA is one of very few schools to offer a dual certification focus, combing both massage therapy and aesthetics into our 1100-Hour Master Massage Therapy diploma. (Massage therapy is offered at our main campus, SWIHA, Southwest Institute of Healing Arts.)

If you are already a licensed aesthetician or you complete your aesthetics program with us, you can take your training to the next level by becoming an Aesthetics Master Educator which prepares you to become a state-licensed Aesthetic Educator. You will learn to instruct others in the most current skin care, anti-aging treatments, and holistic perspectives of treating both mind and body for optimal health and wellness! (This diploma also includes a certification in Life Coaching which can deepen your ability to serve the students you teach on an even more profound level.)

Here at Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics, we graduate confident, ‘fully conscious’ aestheticians who are in-tune to the energy of individual clients and extremely well versed in current market trends and technologies.

We are committed to providing high quality, affordable education. Financial aid is available for those who qualify! Make a decision to change your life and secure your future!

Step into a bright, rewarding, and beautiful career in Natural Skincare with

Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics.
