Advanced Esthetics Institute: 335 Pearl St., in Eugene, Oregon

They Moved! Advanced Esthetics Institute training center recently relocated to a new location at 355 Pearl St., in Eugene, Oregon, to provide students an even more exceptional environment for their learning experience. The Institute provides expert and affordable training to the next generation of esthetics and advanced esthetics treatments to serve the Pacific Northwest.

Executive director Michele Strobel created the Advanced Esthetics Institute after 30 years of experience in the skincare industry. An advocate of education and safety, Strobel contributed testimony to support Oregon legislation that created oversight and licensure pathways in esthetics and advanced esthetics. However, after the legislation’s passage in 2015, Strobel struggled to staff her own business.

“I was in a position where I needed to hire experienced and competent estheticians with advanced certification to grow my own business, but I had difficulty finding licensed estheticians,” Strobel said. “I love learning and teaching, so the next step for me was to add a school to my own existing business and teach the next generation advanced esthetics.”

Michele Strobel provides advanced esthetics instruction, and the Advanced Esthetics Institute Team also includes director and instructor Kayla Bennett, who brings experience and passion for esthetician education. Michele also hired a local Eugene web design company, Optimize Media Marketing, to optimize its online presence.

“I enjoy being a part of advancing our mission to provide students with a comprehensive education so they can provide outstanding esthetic and aesthetic services,” said Bennett said.

At Advanced Esthetics Institute, aspiring estheticians can pursue a 484-hour estheticians program or the 500-hour advanced estheticians’ program. Upon completion, students will perform treatments within the scope of practice for licensure in esthetics and certified advanced esthetics.

Students interested in starting their journey to an exciting and rewarding career in esthetics and advanced esthetics are invited to apply today.
