Skills and Confidence
“Since graduating from Versailles Academy’s professional esthetician and cosmetician program in 2003, I’ve been able to explore various avenues in the field of wellness, skin care and medical esthetics. Versailles provided me with the skills and confidence I needed to pursue a career in an industry I love and successfully own and operate the Ottawa Laser Clinic."
- Alison Watson, Professional Esthetician & Cosmetician Graduate, June 2003
“I am a full-time Medical Aesthetician and Professional Make-up Artist with 10+ years working in the industry. After graduating with honours from Versailles’ Medical Esthetician Program in 2012, I promptly gained full time employment with one of Ottawa’s top cosmetic and plastic surgeons, Dr. Van Wyck at The Best You – Carling and feel that Versailles Academy played a big part in my advancing career. Versailles Academy gave me not only the knowledge and training but the confidence to go after my dream career. This is why I wanted to come back and teach here; to pass along my experience and passion for advanced skin care. I am so grateful I chose Versailles Academy for my continued education. The best is yet to come!!”

Versailles has opened so many doors for me and my future.”
