I get asked this question so many times when telling people what goals I have set for myself or what I am currently doing. Estheticians must have a professional license to provide and perform services such as waxing, facials, skin care, treatments, and more. This is basically a much more advanced profession then being a make up artist. It is detailed, it is informative, and it really goes beyond just creating beauty with products. Estheticians help you cleanse your bare skin and solve issues with acne and blackheads, which many of us struggle to cover with make up. You should know, make up looks better when your natural skin looks better. The less make up you need, the better you are going to appear. Healthy, glowing, and even skin is the most beautiful thing a woman could have.
Here is some more detailed information I have received from visiting:
ESTHETICIANS (sometimes spelled AESTHETICIANS) are licensed Skin Care Specialists who treat the facial skin to maintain and improve its appearance. Estheticians work to achieve their customers’ beautifying goals through the following tasks:
- Analyze customer’s skin care needs.
- Discuss treatments and products with clients.
- Use a magnifying lamp or visor.
- Perform facials to cleanse pores and improve skin tone.
- Apply chemical peels to reduce fine lines and age spots.
- Perform simple extractions to remove blackheads.
- Remove unwanted facial hair using depilatory wax.
- Tint eyebrows.
- Instruct customers on skin care and makeup techniques.
- Sterilize equipment and clean work area.
- Massage the face.
- Select and apply cosmetic products such as creams, lotions, and tonics.
Estheticians who enjoy the instructing aspects of their job could pursue teaching at a beauty college as a licensed instructor. Estheticians may become make-up artists for movies, television, and theatres.
