What is the aesthetics sector compared to the beauty sector?
Traditionally, beauty therapy was the industry you went into if you had an interest in anything beauty related, be that makeup, tanning, nails or spa treatments. Today the industry is split into multiple sectors. The traditional beauty therapy diplomas still exist; however, many people wish to enter the rapidly expanding aesthetics sector. The aesthetics sector is divided into medical aesthetics and non-medical aesthetics.
ATAI specialise in the medical and non-medical modalities in the industry.
We also offer alternative qualifications to enter the industry directly after leaving school or after finishing your nursing degree. For many people, a traditional beauty therapy qualification does not fit their ambitions in the industry. After spending over €9000 delegates still, do not possess the qualifications needed to enter the aesthetics sector. Also, many delegates do not have an interest in tanning, nails, massage and makeup, taught in traditional beauty therapy qualifications.
