An aesthetician is a skincare specialist recognized for offering treatments and services to enhance the skin's health and appearance.

What Is an Aesthetician?

An Aesthetician, sometimes spelled esthetician, is a licensed professional who specializes in enhancing and maintaining the health of your skin. These experts offer a variety of skincare treatments designed not just to improve your skin's appearance but also to ensure its well-being.

The Evolution of the Aesthetician Profession

The role of an aesthetician has significantly evolved over time. Historically, aestheticians focused on makeup application and basic skincare. Today, they have expanded their roles into advanced fields such as dermatology and medical spas, providing specialized services like laser hair removal, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and more.

Differentiating Between Medical Aestheticians and General Spa Aestheticians

While all aestheticians focus on improving the condition of the skin, there are two main types: medical aestheticians and spa aestheticians.

Medical aestheticians are often associated with healthcare settings such as dermatology offices or medical spas. They provide treatments that address specific skin issues like acne or rosacea and offer procedures that require more advanced training such as chemical peels or dermabrasion.

On the other hand, spa aestheticians work in wellness centers or day spas to administer beauty-focused treatments like facials, masks, body scrubs, etc., aimed at general relaxation and enhancement of natural beauty.
