Utah Esthetic is a progressive two tiered licensee, Master Esthetician (1,200 hours) and Esthetician (600 hours). Licensure was signed into law on April 18, 2001 by Governor Michael O. Leavitt, HB 105.  Utah raised the bar by setting a higher standard for the esthetic industry in the United States.

For the two tier Esthetic and Master Esthetic licensing to succeed there were other professionals who attended numerous meetings, made important phone calls, gave suggestions, and met with other licensing boards.  To these individuals,  I give my most sincere Thanks and Gratitude!
Interviewing for this article was a wonderful experience. There are two thoughts needing clarification in the article, as I did not review the final article before it went to print: 

I did outline and write the scope of practice, and the legal draft presented for legislation passage. There were many meetings with other aesthetic professionals who gave of their time and advice.

The exam;  I didn't write the Master Esthetic's exam by myself.  I was given the task to create it. I delegated topics of education to other qualified Master Estheticians who possessed progressive Esthetic knowledge.  I considered their individual strengths and expertise for each area of education. The exam was created and reviewed in committee, then put through the process of making it a legally defensible exam."  ~Ruth Ann Holloway
