About ESI


The Elaine Sterling Institute of esthetic excellence was founded to provide sophisticated skincare education. Our curriculum is based on American Scientific technologies, and we hold all of our students to the traditional European standards of skincare by providing the highest quality education and a premiere experience for our spa clients.

Our students receive hands on training in a real-world spa environment as they perform services in our student clinic. Our educators are all licensed esthetic instructors, and all of our educational team members possess real world skills such as medical esthetics, threading, makeup artistry, Eastern Chinese alternative therapies, massage and so much more. These additional skills are embedded into our curriculum to provide a well rounded learning experience for our students. 

 A 20+ year veteran of the skincare industry, Elaine Sterling created her school to transcend the standard esthetic certification that many schools offer. In addition to your state board licensure,we offer post graduation education to advance and update your skills to meet industry standards. We are proud to be the first school in Georgia to offer international ITEC and CIDESCO certifications that allow students to travel with their careers and adhere to the highest standards in the business.
