Considerably more cost effective than plastic surgery, Medical Aesthetics is a growing trend in the beauty industry, where now more than ever, women want real results fast with less time off to recover.
Just what is Medical Aesthetics? Read on to learn about this growing field, and whether Medical Aesthetician is the right path for you.
Medical Aesthetics: Defined
Medical Aesthetics is a growing field that focuses on specialized skincare treatments, specifically facial skincare. Although there is overlap with cosmetology, Medical Aestheticians are more closely related with the field of dermatology, and focus on a variety of services that help improve and maintain the appearance and health of their client's skin.
What Do Medical Aestheticians Do?
Depending on training and experience, a Medical Aesthetician will examine a client's skin to determine their needs, recommend a skincare regime along with suitable products, and can provide a wide variety of services and procedures for their clients, including:
- Advanced facials
- Chemical peels
- Laser hair removal
- Skin rejuvenation
- Minor vascular treatments
Medical Aestheticians may also assist physicians with cosmetic injectables, such as Botox or dermal fillers. Not all aestheticians are trained and experienced in the same procedures.
As clients continue to seek faster results with little downtime compared to traditional invasive procedures, the need for trained Medical Aestheticians continues to grow.
Hospitals, medical practices or healthcare facilities may employ a medical aesthetician, as well as salons and spas. It's very common for plastic surgery practices and dermatologists' offices to have a Medical Aesthetician on staff.
