Steps to Becoming a Licensed Medical Esthetician
A medical esthetician is a certified and state-licensed skincare expert who is trained to provide a wide variety of treatments that include facials, waxing, wraps and peels. A medical esthetician also uses special laser technologies to provide services such as hair removal, acne and wrinkle reduction as well as injectable treatments.
To become a medical esthetician, follow these four steps:
1. Check Local Requirements:
Almost all states require the student to have a high school diploma or GED equivalent to perform laser treatments. Most states will require students to become an RN if they want to administer cosmetic injections such as Botox and dermal fillers.
Therefore, it is important for the student to evaluate their state’s specific requirements for medical estheticians before jumping ahead.
2. Research Medical Esthetician Programs and Schools
It is advised for students not to limit themselves to local programs and schools; on the contrary it is better for them to consider getting the best education they can in order to maximize their employment opportunities.
In order to evaluate schools, one of the questions that need to be asked is if the school is regulated by their state, if the school offer hands-on training and what sort of equipment students will have access to during their courses.p>
3. Signing Up for a Program that Fits Students’ Needs
Once the student chooses the medical esthetician school, they need to figure out what sort of program is going to suit their needs best. Students need to consider these questions to be able to know that they have taken the best decision; will there be advisors to help with this decision? What are the programs like? What are the schedules like? And so on.
4. Getting Certified and Starting the Job Search
The most important step is for students to attend all classes, pay attention and graduate.
Once graduated, students will be rewarded with a state-approved certificate that will enable them to be hirable candidates and find jobs.
One thing to keep in mind is the more hands-on training the courses offer, the more employable the graduate is.
