Becoming a Medical Esthetician

A Medical Esthetician is a certified professional who provides a wide range of skincare treatments. Medical Estheticians are often viewed as estheticians as well as dermatologists.

Professionals who end up seeking medical esthetician training are already working in a similar industry whether estheticians, skincare specialists or dermatologists.

Starting in Medical Esthetician School

Becoming a licensed medical esthetician starts at a specialized school or with a specialized course. Regardless of their educational backgrounds, students will get a comprehensive training in treatments such as:

  • Laser Wrinkle Reduction
  • Laser Skin Rejuvenation
  • Laser Tattoo Removal
  • Laser Hair Removal

In order to become certified in the administration of cosmetic injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers, the student must be a licensed medical professional beforehand such as an RN, physician’s assistant or other. Since injecting Botox and dermal fillers are not like normal shots, a medical esthetician training and license are necessary. During training, students will learn specific details about Botox, how it affects facial muscles, this history of this type of treatment and proper care pre- and post-treatment.

Regardless of the background, licensed professionals still need to receive medical esthetician training in order to perform laser cosmetic treatment as there are delicate equipment to use and guidelines to follow.

Preparing for Medical Esthetician School

Becoming a certified medical esthetician requires mandatory training and at least a high school diploma or a GED before enrolling in medical esthetician courses. It is important to keep in mind that regulations related to licensing may vary between states therefore the student must do research on current rules and regulations in the area in which they are planning to practice.

Moreover, medical esthetician schools require a number of hands-on training sessions before passing the test and receive the certification.

Career Opportunities

Once the student becomes a certified medical esthetician, they will have plenty of employment opportunities. Receiving certification as a medical esthetician enables the student to find positions at dermatology clinics, medspas, doctors’ offices and laser facilities. This certification also offers the student to expand their current skincare career and boost the potential of their income.
