What is an Esthetician? Estheticians are skincare specialists who administer skin treatments for health and beautification purposes. Customer service skills are essential because these workers rely upon recurring clientele. Business savvy is also important for those who sell skincare products or who own medical spas. Students learn about the history of skincare, sanitation and disinfection practices, skin histology and physiology, skin diseases, cosmetics chemistry, and hair removal.
These skincare professionals work at medical spas, physicians’ offices, cosmetics companies, and manufacturers of skincare products, department stores or beauty schools as educators.
Esthetics is a specialized field of cosmetology that focuses on the study of skincare. A good esthetician is able to work well with their hands, and have a kind and approachable manner. They make the customer feel relaxed and be knowledgeable about their skincare needs and have product knowledge used to treat various skin types.
A licensed esthetician’s job at a spa or salon is to pamper and relax the client with services such as facials, pore cleansing, and exfoliation treatments as well as laser hair removal, waxing, or electrolysis treatments. Since estheticians are trained to recognize and identify skin problems that require a medical professional, some estheticians begin their medical career by working in a medical spa.
