Aesthetician Job Description
The skincare industry is becoming one of the in-demand trades in recent years. More and more customers go to spas in order to have their skin pampered. And with the rise of the interest in skincare and spa treatments, also comes the demand for more aestheticians.
But what exactly is an Aesthetician? These are practitioners who take care of the quality and tone of the skin of their customers. They apply methods which include various skincare procedures such as
- sloughing of dead skin cells
- makeup procedures
- reduction of fine lines & age spots
- facial massages
With this, aesthetician’s need skills such as color analysis, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, hair removal, and even facials and makeovers.
Where do Aestheticians Work?
Other than working in spas, aestheticians can also practice their craft (but usually in different work settings) in establishments such as hospitals and medical offices. They assist plastic surgeons and dermatologists in performing certain medical tasks such as providing pre-operation and post-operation skin services, referral to medical personnel for more serious skin issues, and assisting in the administration of medication and treatments.
Another factor that affects the scale of the wage of an aesthetician is the area where he or she would practice his or her skills. Payscale has enumerated in their website some of the states and their respective hourly rates for aestheticians.
How to Become an Aesthetician?
You may be able to become a medical aesthetician by finding a school near you. Once you’ve applied and been accepted, practice requirements generally range from 300 to 750 hours.
