Absolutely! Yes, we train licensed professionals in advanced skin and body care services, but we are also a Board Licensed Micropigmentation/ Permanent Cosmetics Academy. Please be advised, we are not a beauty school or college and therefore, we do not offer an esthetician or nursing degree. We can however walk you through the entire process to help you become a Licensed Permanent Cosmetic Specialist/ Permanent Makeup Artist which is a separate licensure and is overseen by the county health boards. We can also offer already licensed professionals advanced aesthetic training certifications to further their careers in the beauty and or medical aesthetics industry. In this way we serve career changers or any other individual who is artistic and passionate about learning how to succeed in the $34 billion dollar med spa beauty industry! Permanent makeup artists, estheticians and nurses who attend our training courses go on to work in med spas, doctors offices or in their own private practices along side other aesthetic professionals. Even during a pandemic, the medical spa industry is growing in financial double digits per year! The average hourly wage of a proficient Licensed Permanent Cosmetic Specialist is $100 plus per hour. This is why we train so many nurses and PA's and yes, even doctors, to perform permanent makeup and micro pigmentation services.
Unlike other training providers, we customize all courses to your specific needs and schedule. If you need more information after reading our website, you can book your own in person, telephone or FACETIME academic consultation by clicking Book Now. That will take you to our secure scheduling system where you can view all of our courses, prices and availability. Since many of our course clinicals are 1 day, taught 9am to 3pm, you can simply book by appointment, no long wait times. Some of our course clinicals are 3 day boot camps and are taught on weekends, for example, our Microblading Course Clinical is taught once per month on Friday, Saturday and Sunday 9am to 3pm. You can also book your course and pay the registration deposit by calling us at 513-561-7546 (SKIN). We take a credit card registration payment to reserve your date with us. The registration fee goes toward your tuition and is non-refundable. Your course is not scheduled until the deposit fee is received. Financing is also available up to $5,000 and can be discussed during your in person or telephone consultation or you can click here for details. As soon as you schedule your course with us you will receive an email confirmation and text reminders. Our administrator will also email your training manual and call or email you with any special instructions you may need before class.
Yes! We do provide training supply kits and manuals and they are included in your tuition price. We charge for high quality education that is required for you to practice safely and legally and there are no hidden fees or upcharge for these supplies! When you register for your course and pay the deposit to reserve your class date we will send you an email with reading materials. The reading will need to be read prior to your coming to class and is your virtual portion of the class. The day or days in class are considered your hands-on clinical. We do not mail hard copies of manuals or course materials because many of our students come from out of town and need to get the reading as soon as possible.
Once you register for our courses you will also be given access to our recommended vendor lists to purchase excellent supplies and aesthetic equipment. All equipment, lasers and Coolsculpting, PMU machines etc., orders will be handled by our medical aesthetic supply company partners who can help you resource them for the best price. Details, supply lists and vendor lists will be given during in class. We do not handle supply orders for things like skin and body equipment, permanent makeup machines, needles or replacement machines.
You will be required to arrange a model for your live, hands-on clinical. It is usually easier to perform a service on someone you know. If you are taking a one day class your model should arrive no later than 11am and the model will be expected to stay as late as 2:30pm. For example, our Microblading & Microshading Course is a three day clinical taught over the course of three days. Your model should arrive on the third day by 11am and be expected to stay until 2:30pm. Renew Image will arrange a model for you only if you are coming from out of town and and a $99 scheduling fee will be added to your tuition cost. Model fee is $99 per course and is paid by the model. We charge a fee because it takes time to book models so that our students can have a high quality hands on training experience. Please note our instructors make sure all models leave with good results so they don’t have to worry! They are under the direct supervision of highly trained instructors as well as the best hands! Yours!
You will be working in a clinical setting and we suggest the following: Dress in professional attire or scrubs while in class, and hair tied back. We take photos and videos of our courses and want to project a professional and sanitary image. You will be required to sign a photo release. Bring an ipad or laptop to make notes. Bring a note pad and pen. Please bring snacks and lunch, oftentimes class runs into lunch so we can not guarantee a long break. Beverages and snacks are available. We are conveniently located near many restaurants.
Then you may register in the next up-coming class and bring a list of your questions to that class to ask your instructor. Check for upcoming class dates and call, text or email us a request to be add as a refresher. Our training is so comprehensive and our reading materials are so high quality that our refresher rate is very low. However, we know situations arise that make it necessary, we are here for lifetime support! Our success is your success! Please arrange your own model the day of your refresher. There is no charge to attend a refresher.
You will receive an board recognized certificate of attendance with our instructors endorsement. If you are a licensed professional and your board requires that you receive additional training and certification to perform these services under your own scope of practice, as soon as you leave our course you are legally permitted to perform these services. We recommend you call your insurance company and make sure you are covered before performing services. If you are taking our permanent cosmetics courses, such as microblading or scalp micro pigmentation, you will receive your certificate of training and be able to legally perform the services after you receive a permit from the health board to operate. We provide informantion and details to help you obtain your license. We also provide affordable insurance company recommendations. We do not offer continuing education hours for licensed professionals. Please check with your respective state boards for more information on continuing education requirements.
Our programs are NOT only One Day. Our courses are considered Hybrid Courses. Our in person One Day courses are considered clinicals or hands-on practicals, however, you will be required to read course materials prior to coming to your hands-on clinical (and you must practice after your clinicals to become proficient). The more you practice the faster you will move from a beginner to an expert! If you are already a licensed professional we expect that you have a basic understanding of the skin, wound healing, and bloodborne pathogens etc., that are required to take our courses and practice legally and safely. When you register for any class, we will email you all training materials and other information you must read prior to class, you can print these if you wish but it is not necessary. Remember, no one is expected to do perfect work after one day of hands on clinical training, we expect that you will continue to practice the tools given to you until you master your skills.
All courses are taught at our luxury training facility located in Cincinnati Ohio at 7182 Liberty Centre Drive, Suite O, Liberty Township, Ohio 45069. We recommend the Hilton Home2 Suites which is next door to our professional center, or AC Marriott at The Liberty Center just a 1/2 mile up the street where you can enjoy fine dining, entertainment and shopping.
