After Esthetician School: Medical Esthetics

medical esthetic schoolWhether you’re fresh out of esthetician school or have been an esthetician for years, we think there’s something you should know. The health and beauty world doesn’t stop at esthetic treatments. Facials, wraps, peels, waxing, and tweezing are all beneficial to skincare, but with the advancements in technology there has been a demand for a new kind of beauty: medical esthetic and cosmetic laser treatments.

What exactly are cosmetic laser treatments? These refer to popular services like laser hair reduction, radiofrequency wrinkle reduction, IPL skin rejuvenation, laser tattoo removal, laser cellulite reduction, laser acne reduction, and much more. While esthetic treatments do help improve skincare, many cosmetic laser treatments can be used in combination with other esthetic treatments (such as peels + IPL photofacials). But adding cosmetic laser treatments also allows you to earn more clientele who prefer one treatment over the other, such as laser hair reduction each month versus waxing each month. This way, as a skincare specialist, you aren’t missing out on clients and therefore aren’t missing out on earning more cash!

Medical esthetic treatments typically refer to Botox, dermal fillers, sclerotherapy, and other noninvasive cosmetic injections that are used to enhance and rejuvenate skin. In order to practice medical esthetic treatments like Botox, however, you must have a background as a medical professional because you are injecting clients. Medical professionals who are also licensed estheticians can truly benefit from this, especially since there is no hassle of insurance on cosmetic treatments!

The best part of medical esthetics and cosmetic laser training is that certification takes two weeks or less to complete! This means you can be on your way to treating clients with these services in no time.
