About ASCP Membership
Skin care professionals have told us loud and clear what they need: affordable insurance, news on what's happening in the field, networking resources, business advice and marketing materials, continuing education, and a voice in the profession. We are the largest association devoted solely to skin care practitioners.
Who can join?
To join ASCP, if you practice in a state that regulates esthetics or skin care, you must have a valid, current license from that state. If you practice in a state that does not regulate esthetics or skin care, you must have a cosmetology license or certificate of skin care training from a state-approved program. See our State Regulation Guide.
What does it cost?
Annual membership at the Skin Care Professional level costs $259. Estheticians who also practice massage therapy can join both ASCP and ABMP for a single cost of $259 and receive benefits from both associations. For skin care students, two levels of student membership ($59 and $39) are available.
