What Can An Esthetician Help Me With?
There are a variety of reasons why one would seek the professional advice of an esthetician. Anyone suffering from or looking for help with following could use an esthetician:
General anti-aging prevention
Acne or skin breakouts
Acne or surgical scars
Rosacea or skin redness
Loose or sagging skin
Excessively dry, oily or sensitive skin
Estheticians are highly trained in all aspects of skin wellness. They help their patients balance oil and moisture content in order to achieve a healthy, glowing complexion. In additio to performing various facial treatments, they commonly also perform body treatments as well in order to rejuvenate the skin.
A variety of treatments and products are used to protect skin from environmental hazards and combat fine lines, wrinkles, and a dull, uneven skin tone. Estheticians are also skilled in managing conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema, and dry skin, to name just a few. If smooth, healthy skin is your goal, visiting an esthetician can benefit you.
What Is The Difference Between An Esthetician And A Dermatologist?
Both an esthetician and a dermatologist study the skin, but there are some instances where seeing an esthetician may be more beneficial and visa versa. If someone is looking for general skin health and wellness, in most cases you can skip the derm office and head straight your local esthetician for guidance. An esthetician can help you with helping build you a skin care routine based on your skin care goals, and also help you obtain that youthful glow. However, if you are struggling with a very severe skin condition, you may benefit from going straight to the dermatologist’s office. Because estheticians cannot prescribe medications, severe cases are encouraged to make an appointment with a dermatologist rather than an esthetician.
Dermatologists and estheticians often work closely together, and there are often referrals back and forth between the professionals. Given most patients see their estheticians on a more regular basis than a dermatologist, it is common that a patient will first ask their aesthetician for assistance on a skin concern before being referred to the dermatologist.
What To Expect During A Consultation With An Esthetician?
It is always a good idea to schedule a consultation with your provider prior to your first treatment. This gives both you and your esthetican an opportunity to see if this new relationship will be a good “fit”. During the consultation, you can discuss your goals and expectations and treatment options. During a consultation, your esthetician will create a customized treatment plan based on her analysis of your skin concerns and goals. Also during the consultation, a treatment plan and expected costs with be recommended to the patient.
During the initial consultation, don’t hesitate to ask about your esthetician’s background, training, and experience, particularly as it relates to the treatment plan you are considering. At Ellemes Medical Spa, our esthetician’s are highly trained with over 10 years of experience. They are also required to stay up to date with current practices and changes in the aesthetics field annually. Professional aesthetics training is required each year for estheticians in order to meet state-board licensing requirements.
