What to Look for in an Esthetician December 2023

Updated: February 4, 2022


An esthetician can help improve your skin in ways that no over-the-counter remedy or cream can. By taking into account not just your skin type but also your lifestyle, dietary habits, stress levels and even sleep patterns, they can create a treatment plan that is specifically tailored for you as an individual.

They can also teach you how to better take care of your skin so that you can maintain the improvements long after your last appointment.

What Characteristics Distinguish A Good Esthetician?

So now that we know why esthetics is important, let’s take a look at what you should be looking for in an esthetician.

Here are 5 key characteristics:

1) They should be licensed and insured. This is not only to protect you as the client but also to protect the esthetician themselves.

2) They should have experience and be up to date on the latest skincare treatments and technologies.

3) They should be personable and good with communication. You’ll be spending quite a bit of time with them, so it’s important that you feel comfortable talking them about all aspects of your skin.

4) They should be able to provide a detailed treatment plan that is specific to you.

5) They should be able to offer a range of services, from basic skincare treatments to more advanced procedures.

So now that you know what to look for, how do you go about finding an esthetician that meets these requirements? Ask around for recommendations or do some research online. Once you’ve narrowed it down, schedule a consultation so that you can get to know them better and see if they are the right fit for you.

Trust your gut instinct – if something doesn’t feel right, then it probably isn’t.
