Course Description

The Facial Massage is a very important part of the facial. It is the time in the facial for the client to relax, however, it is also a treatment because stress plays such a huge part of skin health. The esthetician must learn to 'communicate' with their client through their touch and the facial massage must communicate confidence, control and of course, relaxation.

In that time, she researched various skin care product lines, studied Naturopathy, and has been a consultant and aesthetician in private practice and for physicians, as well as a Laser Technician. Ms. Benoit also worked with the University of Connecticut’s Department of Dermatology, the Clearwater Dermatology and Palm Harbor Plastic Surgery in Florida. Always a student, Ms. Benoit trained in Paris, becoming the National Educator for Matis-Paris prior to educating the staff of several National Companies. However, since she believes “there is no end to education” she continues to study, train and share her knowledge and experience.In 1997 there were only two companies holding the patents for manufacturing microdermabrasion equipment in the USA, and there were no educators for the procedures. Ms. Benoit purchased one of the first aesthetician model microdermabrasion machines sold in the United States from Derma Genesis. She assisted them, other companies and aestheticians to develop the protocols for Microdermabrasion treatments for both crystal and diamond methods. The ever changing world of skin care inspired her to evolve and specialize in medical spa consulting, yet because her passion has always been in education and training, she integrated education with her consulting profession. Ms. Benoit has provided training for aestheticians, spa professionals and medical staff. For the past five and a half years, she has worked as the Lead of the Esthetic’s department developing programs for Academy Di Capelli, including a Para-Medical Aesthetician Program. “The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows”….
