AW Skin Institute is all about Esthetics!  We specialize in skin treatments without the distraction of other Cosmetology areas like hair.  The AW Skin Institute is here to teach you the ins and outs of skin beautification—from facials and waxing to eyelash extensions and body treatments and now mani/pedis in the Manicurist or Esty/Mani course! Our techniques for teaching involve simple repetition and simulating situational spa experiences that will prepare you for your exciting new career.  Our goal is to make sure you are confident, prepared and experienced in all aspects of skin.  


At AW Skin Institute we believe that Esthetics school should be affordable.  We’ve taken affordability to a new level by offering a tuition rate that is much lower than other schools and flexible payment plans that are built around you. We know that practice makes perfect, so we keep our students busy with hands-on training at no extra charge.  Students also receive discounted services at the AW Skin Clinic, allowing them to experience professional services in an actual spa to further enrich their learning.


Our school is not intended to create Estheticians—we create Medical Estheticians.  There is a difference!  We do this by teaching advanced skin care techniques, using the best quality supplies available.  We use a hard wax suitable for even the most sensitive skin for our waxing classes and professional quality lashes for eyelash extensions.  Our skin treatments are performed with our own AW Clinicals products that we have formulated with ingredients known for their ability to help change skin, as well as professional acid and enzyme peels. 


AW Skin Institute is owned by Ann Webb, the Medical Esthetician behind the nationally recognized Ann Webb Skin Care line and the successful Ann Webb Skin Clinic in Austin, TX.  If anyone knows the Esthetics field, it’s Ann! She makes it a point to mentor her students, encouraging all aspects of their learning with her extensive knowledge of the industry.  A team of highly experienced Estheticians, Instructors, guest speakers, and managers including her husband, Sam Webb run the school.  


We love seeing our students succeed and our rates are some of the highest!  Our current success rates are:

Graduation Rate:  79.67%

Placement Rate:  70.10%

Licensure Rate: 100%

Meet Ann Webb

Ann Webb is a renowned medical esthetician, product developer, and owner of the Ann Webb Skin Clinic and Institute.


Ann developed a passion for skin care at a young age when she faced her own struggles with severe cystic acne. She grew up small-town poor with limited resources for treating her skin. Ann traveled to nearby cities and began an exhaustive search for skin treatments. This journey led to her own specialized hands-on protocols that brought about a change in many people’s skin.

Ann spent years working for top dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and high-end spas before starting a small Esthetics practice in her home. Her policy was that no one would be turned away based on ability to pay. This mission still holds true today.

In the same way that Ann fought her way out of childhood poverty and severe acne, she began to build a clinic and skin care line. She knew that to survive in business she would need a team built on loyalty, drive, and tremendous work ethic. Joanna Marceaux, her childhood best friend, fit that bill perfectly.

Ann and Joanna created Skin By Ann Webb, one of the cleanest, most effective and affordable skin care lines in the natural products industry. They concurrently grew the Ann Webb Skin Clinic to a clientele of over 15,000. They opened the only Medical Esthetics school in the U.S., and most recently started their second skin care line, Ann Webb Skin Care. It is the culmination of all that they have learned over the years and what we like to call the closest thing to “Medical Esthetics in a Bottle.”
