The 411 on Medical Aesthetician Schools

medical aesthetician schoolMedical aestheticians are defined as health and beauty professionals who perform a variety of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments in order to improve the aesthetic appearance of skin and skin care rejuvenation.

Because the medical aesthetics industry has been steadily increasing over the last decade, many nurses, doctors, medical professionals, and health and beauty experts have been actively seeking out medical aesthetician schools in order to train with cosmetic lasers and injectables.

Medical Aesthetician Schools

Unlike aesthetician schools, medical aesthetician training only takes between 1-3 weeks.

Aspiring medical aestheticians will learn everything they need to know about cosmetic lasers, safety and techniques. Medical professionals have the opportunity to receive Botox injection training and dermal filler training.

Attending an esthetician school may take you 6-12 months to complete, but medical aesthetician schools only take two weeks to complete your training.

According to the ASAPS most recent report, there were over 13 million nonsurgical cosmetic treatments performed in 2012. The top ranking nonsurgical services were:

  • Botox, (#1 with over 6 million treatments)
  • Dermal fillers, (#2 with over 2 million treatments)
  • Laser hair removal (#3 with over 1 million treatments).

As you can see from statistical evidence, more and more people are receiving cosmetic laser and injectable treatments for smooth, flawless skin.
