FALL 2021 Graduate Testimonials

“I am a Bachelors of Health Sciences graduate from Stockton University who was very curious and trying to figure what was my next move. I then attended the Cosmetology course at Rizzieri Aveda School. Once that was completing, I decided to try aesthetics. It was the best decision I ever made. The Integrative Medical Aesthetics Program of NJ made me truly realize how much joy Aesthetics brings me. I recently decided I want to be an Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. This program really taught me that this is what I truly look forward to and would like my career to be. The main educator Laurie had taught us so many great lectures that went into depth and detail. She was super sweet. It was so reassuring having her watch you and teach you multiple techniques. Helene’s guidance was extremely helpful, setting up models, assisting in my future endeavors and overall very supportive. I would definitely recommend this program further to those who are looking for their next big step. I am really excited to start my BSN journey next year and fulfill my future goal of becoming an Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner.”

“I just completed the integrative medical aesthetic program at the Rizzieiri Aveda Institute and I couldn’t be happier! It was worth every penny! Helene, the director of the program, worked so hard to make sure everyone and everything was taken care of.  Doctor Wilcox and the instructors, Laurie and Nikki, were extremely knowledgeable and answered every single question we had in full detail.  The curriculum was extremely effective as well, we had lectures in the morning then the hands on portion followed.  I cannot wait to start applying at medical spas and use the skills I learned! Whether you’re a beginner in the aesthetic field or experienced, this program is for you.  I 100% recommended it!” -Ivana Puglise

“Since enrolling in esthetics school, it’s been my goal to become a medical aesthetician focusing on corrective skincare. Through research, I came across A Medical Spa at Rizzieri ’s Medical Aesthetics Program and was immediately excited to enroll. I recently completed the Fall 2021 course and was extremely pleased with the structure of the program. Each topic discussed included class lectures along with hands-on experience, which I found most valuable. Having the opportunity to practice each corrective medical treatment on a live model was a game changer for me. All of the instructors were great with answering everyone’s questions and providing one on one guidance when asked. This program has not only increased my knowledge of corrective medical treatments, but also my confidence as an aesthetician. I would recommend this program to anyone looking to advance their career in aesthetics.”

“I have been a cosmetologist for the past 17 years. The one thing I love about this industry is that there are always opportunities to further your learning and education. When I made the decision to take the Integrative Medical Aesthetic Program at the Rizzieri Aveda School, it was another step to strengthen my education and enhance my career trajectory. I was initially nervous going into the Medical aesthetic program, as my background for the past 17 years is a hair stylist, but Dr. Wilcox, Helene and Laurie put my mind at ease and any nerves I felt were gone after the first day. They provide in-depth information and answered any questions I had. Laurie demonstrated how to dermaplane, perform chemical peels, and micro-needling on a client. Not only did they show you how to do it, you also have the opportunity to practice on models. Another positive part of the class is that you get the service done on yourself so you can experience what your client feels. I am proud to have just completed the Fall 2021 Medical Aesthetic program, and I highly recommend this class to anyone looking to further their career. This program has created many more career opportunities for me that I never thought were possible.” – Sara Zeeman

“When I reflect on my education at Rizzieri Aveda School esthetic and medical program, I conclude that the experience not only made me a better esthetician, but also prepared me in unpredictable ways for my career. Through classes with incredibly supportive doctors, teachers and classmates, we discover that we advance by learning from one another, and we create our own touch. These personal experiences played a central role in my work. I will carry this knowledge throughout life. As we advance in esthetics we are vital to think, plan, communicate, and engage. I have learned to treat and pamper my peers and guests while educating them along the way. It was a wonderful time in my life, and the best educational experience I’ve had.” ~ Kayla Montgomery

”As a Registered Nurse, I have always wanted to venture off in to the glamorous side of nursing but never had the means or the time to complete a course.  Once Covid hit and I was furloughed for the year of 2020, I decided I wanted to make a change in my life.  So not only did I decide to complete my BSN but I said time to enroll in the Medical Aesthetics program at Rizzeri.  It was the best decision I made in my life.  Transitioning at first was scary but in the end it’s all worth it.”

Syreeta Turner RN, BSN, Class of 2021

FALL 2020 Graduate Testimonials

“I just completed the Medical Aesthetician Program for the 2020 Fall class.  While the pandemic made everything difficult this year, the women in charge of this class did their best to make sure we had the best education and experience.  I admire the hard work that went  into this program to ensure we had a safe and effective learning experience. I would recommend every aesthetician take this class.  It can be scary jumping into the beauty industry but this class explains in depth the most intimidating medical procedures an esthetician can do.  Not only do you get to preform these treatments on models, you also get to experience them for yourself.  This gives you a better understanding of how each procedure feels so you have the experience to explain to your clients and make them feel as comfortable as possible.  The instructors provided so much advice for the industry that will stay with me and help me be the best aesthetician I can possibly be. The instructors were amazing teachers and role models. I am so grateful for this class. If you are thinking about taking it, do it!! You will not regret all the wonderful people you meet and the things you learn.”

I found the program while searching online and through word of mouth.

FALL 2018 Graduate Testimonials

“I was enrolled in the Integrative Medical Aesthetics Program during the fall of 2018. My instructors were Dr. Wilcox, Helene Geigelman and Laurie Steele. During this time I was able to learn many things about advanced medical skincare procedures, causes of skincare problems and how to remediate them. I was immensely impressed by the knowledge and professionalism of my mentors. I was struck by the intensity of the curriculum and how comprehensive it was. It truly enabled me to improve my skills and passion for addressing skincare routines. I had the opportunity to practice the techniques we were taught, which gave me the confidence I was looking for. I now possess hands on experience that I need to be successful in this industry. This program is very thorough and educational. You will not receive this kind of extensive training anywhere else. I would recommend this program to anyone that is serious and interested in Medical Aesthetics. I cannot begin to express how thankful I am for having the opportunity to take this program. Overall, it was a great opportunity to explore and challenge myself to expand my options.”

“I would absolutely recommend the Integrative Medical Aesthetics Program. There was so much information given that was useful, current and pertinent to finding a job in this field. I specifically enjoyed Dr. Wilcox’s “pearls” of important information that are so useful in treating clients. Laurie’s client care, charting and product recommendation tips were fantastic as well. The entire program was well run, organized and geared for the maximum learning and practice time of the students. It was very beneficial to both give and receive the services so we experienced what they felt like and could make recommendations to clients. They went above and beyond to be sure we were the most educated in the field. We even received training on advanced anatomy, injectables and lasers so we can better assist the doctors and nurses at our practice. I only graduated less than a month ago and have already been on two very promising interviews at different facilities. Both were impressed with my training and were eager to hear more about the program. If you are thinking of advancing your skincare career, this is the program for you!”
