Do you want to wake up in the morning and make a difference in people's lives? If your answer is an ecstatic yes, then becoming an aesthetician might be the perfect career for you! What makes aestheticians unique? Contrary to the traditional esthetician working in a spa or salon atmosphere, aestheticians perform on patients in a clinical setting alongside medical professionals. These medical professionals may recommend non-invasive skincare procedures for medical purposes or for cosmetic reasons. According to EstheticianEDU.org, here are just a few atmospheres an aesthetician working with medical aesthetics can work in below.
Cosmetic surgery practice - Common daily duties performed by an aesthetician working in a cosmetic surgery practice may consist of performing pre- and post-operative care to patients, which may include lymphatic drainage and wound care.
Medical Spa/Dermatologist Office- An aesthetician in a medical spa would
perform specialized treatments designed to reduce scarring and hyperpigmentation.
Specialist clinics and units- Aestheticians working in specialist clinics and units have the opportunity to work with trauma patients, cancer patients, or burn survivors. This type of fulfilling work may involve helping reduce patient anxiety following a traumatic injury or illness.
In these settings, aesthetic treatments often focus on restoring elasticity to damaged tissue.
The skincare industry is constantly advancing so the duties of an aesthetician are endless and exciting! This career choice allows you to be apart of a big and beautiful picture! Whether you choose this career to help people to achieve their everyday beauty goals or help them repair what they have once had, you are making a beautiful change in their lives.
