Out of sheer passion for skin care, and by way of advanced knowledge in the medical spa industry, Southeastern Esthetics Institute was founded. Because of a serious lack in advanced education for Estheticians and the changing trends in the industry, our owner, Courtney G. Sykes, observed a niche that needed to be filled.


Students will experience a level of teaching style and hands-on training that is unmatched in South Carolina. Students will come to class excited to learn - and leave class wanting to learn more!

Our modern learning facilities are located at: 501 Spears Creek Church Road, Elgin, SC 29045.
