acne facial training  


Gina Norton, our Course Director at Advanced Skin Support, mission is to teach students how to perform facials incorporating European techniques she has developed through Bio Jouvance Paris Training!  Gina traveled around the US in 2016 attending courses of many educators to develop techniques to bring to her training courses.  Advanced Skin Support has grown and we now offer a variety of advanced skin courses at our new facility in Bismarck.  We are proud to say that we provide a small class size of 4 students to make sure each student gets hands-on experience and when you leave we offer 4 hours of FREE support after the class, because we realize this is when most questions come up.
