CHICAGO, Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Paul Dykstra, CEO of Cosmetologists Chicago - one of the largest associations of salon professionals in the U.S. - and its sub-division the American Association for Esthetics, celebrates the vote of the CIDESCO (Comité International d'Esthétique et de Cosmétologie) General Assembly in granting the American Association for Esthetics the rights to administer CIDESCO Section USA.
Dykstra comments: "CIDESCO provides international recognition of the highest standards and training in skin care service skills, making it possible for estheticians and spa professionals to achieve credentials that are recognized in more than 40 countries. Additionally CIDESCO Section USA will accredit salons and spas with the gold standard of a CIDESCO certificate.
"For the consumer this ensures that professionals with CIDESCO credentials, and salons and spas with CIDESCO accreditation, all follow the highest practices and standards in client care, safety, and product effectiveness while being the most highly skilled and knowledgeable in the world!"
CIDESCO Section USA is committed to providing education to help salon and spa professionals improve and excel in all facets of skin care and cosmetic effectiveness by offering them the opportunity to obtain the CIDESCO Diplomate designation. Therefore, CIDESCO Section USA will offer educational tracks at professional conferences in Florida, California, New York, and Illinois in the coming months.
New opportunities will be announced shortly for salons, spas, manufacturers and distributors in support of esthetics excellence in the USA. Dykstra added, "We will also assist manufacturers to both understand and to embrace the CIDESCO worldwide benchmark and if they are aligned with FDA regulations, they will be eligible to apply as CIDESCO associate members."
An extensive search will be undertaken to connect with all current USA CIDESCO Diplomates -- the highest designation in the salon and spa profession. USA salon and spa professionals who have earned the prestigious CIDESCO Diplomate honor are invited to update their profiles at AmericasBeautyShow.com/CIDESCOUSA.
National sections, as well as leading schools and colleges from around the world in over 40 countries represent CIDESCO across 5 continents, which offer the internationally acclaimed CIDESCO standards and qualifications. CIDESCO schools offer a portfolio of prestigious training programs, standards and qualifications in Beauty and Spa Therapy and Management, Aromatherapy, Epilation and Media Make-up to produce graduates and professionals of the highest level.
