Why You Should Consider a Career in Medical Aesthetics

Career in Medical AestheticsAre you a recent high school graduate or considering a career change? Do you want to choose a career field that you will love? We have a solution: Consider a career in medical aesthetics!

Here are the top four reasons why a career in medical aesthetics should be your next career move:

  • Increased demand for treatments. If you do your research (and we hope you have), you will find that the medical aesthetics marketplace is growing rapidly. In 2016, over $16 billion was spent on cosmetic treatments, ranging from laser hair reduction to Botox. The reason for this popularity? Treatment prices are affordable, and the results are dramatic. As the medical aesthetics industry continues to grow, there’s an increased demand for cosmetic laser techs. (And there are opportunities to earn a little extra money, too.)
  • Tons of growth opportunities. If you are worried about hitting a standstill once you land a job, you can breathe a sigh of relief. There are many opportunities to learn and grow within every position in this industry. You will find that many clinics will offer additional cosmetic laser training to their employees to learn about the newest techniques and devices for different procedures.
  • There is never a dull moment. If you don’t like monotony, then you have found the right career field, because every day is an adventure. Patients consult estheticians and cosmetic laser techs for several reasons: everything from acne and rosacea to wrinkles and scarring. You will combine your people and technical skills by performing a handful of different treatments while educating patients.
  • It is a rewarding experience. As the saying goes: If you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life. This career path is for people who are truly passionate about what they do because they help people look and feel good about themselves. Wouldn’t you want a career where you can inspire confidence and happiness in others?
