I am so happy I found Concepts Institute of Advanced Esthetics. The classes for both the Clinical and Medical Esthetics certification programs are offered separately so they are easy to work around your personal and professional schedules. Michele's teaching style is not only fun and engaging, but her extensive knowledge and experience shine through every class. Even after receiving my certification, I am still calling her with questions! Thanks Michele and Concepts Institute for going beyond the basics and giving me the confidence I need in this fast changing industry.

​Michele Phelan is a teacher with an incredible amount of knowledge pertaining to all aspects of skin care, machines, chemistry, anatomy and physiology. She is truly passionate about teaching and works very hard to make sure no one was left behind in the learning process. She has a gift for making difficult subjects easy to understand, while keeping the classroom environment light and fun. I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from her.

Michele Phelan was my CIDESCO teacher for 9 months and I would have to say because of her teaching methods I was able to not only learn but to also understand every subject she taught us. She is thorough and extremely knowledgeable in her field and she made learning fun and easy. I feel blessed to have had her as my teacher. My education was complete because of Michele. She prepared me for the job of being an esthetician above and beyond what I had imagined. Had I not taken her courses I feel I would not have been truly ready to enter the work force. Thanks for everything Michele!

My two instructors, Michele Phelan and Maria Lorenzi made my learning experience fun and interesting. Michele always incorporated the newest and most advanced techniques and technologies and provided great insight into the business side of esthetics. Maria added an easy to learn edge and artistic flare to all she taught. Both educators are at the top of their profession and I feel incredibly fortune to have learned from the best.
