How to Become an Aesthetician

A medical aesthetician specializes in facial skin care and often works closely with dermatologists. They help to improve and maintain the appearance and health of a client’s skin through a variety of procedures, products, and services.

Though they are often confused for cosmetologists, aestheticians are more focused in the medical field and are actively involved in the ongoing healthcare and treatment of each patient. Medical aestheticians may be employed in hospitals, medical practices, healthcare facilities, salons, and plastic surgery practices.

What Services Do Aestheticians Provide?

Aestheticians provide a wide range of services, most commonly chemical peels, facial scrubs, laser treatment, and Botox injections. They will examine the skin of their patients and help determine the best treatment options for their needs and concerns. From acne to aging, aestheticians can help with a variety of skin issues.
