2014 Predicted to be a Great Year for Medical Aesthetic School

Over the last several years, the medical esthetic industry has steadily increased. Botox, dermal fillers, laser hair reduction, and many other forms of skin rejuvenation are just some of the noninvasive treatments that make up this billion dollar medical esthetic marketplace. In fact, according to the ASAPS, noninvasive cosmetic treatments experienced a 10% increase from last year. In the last 16 years, there has been a 250% increase for these types of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments.

Like many others, you’re probably wondering why there is such a high demand for nonsurgical treatments. In this economy, people have become wiser with their dollar. An invasive skin rejuvenation surgery can cost in the high thousands and result in a long recovery time, but a noninvasive cosmetic treatment (such as Botox) can cost in the hundreds and have absolutely no downtime while producing phenomenal results. In fact, many people who received Botox cosmetic said it wiped 10 years off their appearance!

Because the trends over the last several years show a significant increase in nonsurgical treatments, its predicted that 2014 will be a stellar year for medical esthetic school.

Medical Aesthetic School and the Demand for Treatments

Statistics have proved that there is an extremely high demand for these types of noninvasive cosmetic treatments, and many people have been taking advantage of this in order to expand their income.

Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals can become trained in cosmetic injectables and cosmetic laser treatments in two weeks or less, earning certification by attending a medical esthetic school in order to be able to provide these treatments. Because these are cosmetic treatments, they are not covered by insurance by the client. This means you make 100% of the profit when you offer these services. We’ve seen many medical professionals take advantage of this opportunity to increase both their income and clientele.

Do you enjoy working in the skincare industry but aren’t a medical professional? Estheticians, cosmetologists, and even those looking to change careers can become trained in cosmetic laser treatments in most states. (*It is important to check your state’s regulations before enrolling). Those who are interested in providing services such as laser hair reduction, photofacial skin rejuvenation, laser tattoo removal, laser acne reduction, and more can attend a medical esthetic school in order to earn certification to treat their own clients. Training takes two weeks or less, depending on the course provided! This means you can start earning more income and treating new clientele in no time.
