Medical estheticians are state-licensed skin care experts who work in healthcare facilities and medical spas. They provide skin care therapies to help clients whose illnesses, injuries, surgeries, or age, have adversely affected their appearance. Medical estheticians also work to help clients look and feel better in their own skin by prescribing treatments for acne, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles.
If you want to become a medical esthetician, a good place to start is by becoming an esthetician. Once you have attended esthetician school, you can get your laser training at National Laser Institute.
How To Become a Medical Esthetician
Estheticians are running to National Laser Institute in droves to get their laser training. Why? Because esthetics and cosmetic laser are a perfect marriage of skills for the following 4 reasons:
1.You Can Have a Higher Earning Potential
Medical estheticians enjoy a higher income. The average facial is $70 compared with a Photofacial which is $300. In the same amount of time it takes to perform a facial, you can earn over 4 times more with the skills of a medical esthetician. Because you are making more money, you can take more time with each client and better your customer service. You can also afford to upgrade their experience with the little things that wow your client. Fresh flowers, luxurious mints for post service, and maybe a complimentary sugar scrub are all things that you will be able to offer because you are making more money.
2.You Can Expand Your Service Offering to Become More Competitive
Speaking of customer service and creating that wow experience for your clients, when you become a medical esthetician you are able to expand your services. By doing this you are not only more competitive in the marketplace, it makes you more well rounded. As an esthetician, chemical peels and microdermabrasion can only do so much for your clients. But with laser training you provide dramatic results including wrinkle reduction, indented acne scar reduction, skin tightening, body contouring, vein reduction, laser tattoo removal, and things that esthetician skill set does not address.
3.You Can Provide More Effective Treatments to Clients
Estheticians normally work with superficial surface layer cosmetic treatments. While these treatments can make an impact on the surface of the skin, imagine how much more dramatic the results can be using laser treatments that go deep below the surface of the skin. Becoming a medical esthetician is highly rewarding because you can make a bigger difference in the lives of your clients with real, lasting, life-changing results. This can be very rewarding for both the client and the medical esthetician providing treatment.
4.You Will Have Greater Opportunities for Career Advancement
When you become a medical esthetician you will find more opportunities for advancement to work in the medical field with doctors and medical spas. As an educated medical esthetician, you are an essential part of the medical team, whether it be in a doctor’s office, a plastic surgery clinic, or a medical spa.
