What is a Medical Esthetician?

What is a Medical Esthetician?  


Many prospective students apply to Dermal Science International Aesthetics & Nail Academy often ask – what exactly is a medical esthetician and what do they actually do?  Technically speaking, the term ‘medical esthetician’ is actually a misnomer – as the role is really as an esthetician that happens to work in the medical profession.

The esthetician role is in high demand in the medical profession, as they stand at the intersection of beauty, new anti-aging products and technologies and advances in medicine.  For example, estheticians often work in the medical field with Dermatologists.  For example, Alix Strauss, a journalist with Charlotte’s Book highlights the experiences of an esthetician – Jordan Mattioni (“a licensed medical esthetician who works with cosmetic dermatologists Dr. Julie Karen and Dr. Elizabeth Hale” in New York).    “Like many in-office estheticians, Ms. Mattioli gives advanced, noninvasive facials, and incorporates therapies like ultrasound, microcurrent, LED light therapy, peels into her treatments. Ms. Mattioni notes, “I also get to attend medical professional-only conventions, symposiums, meetings, and conferences for continuing education,” she explains, “so there’s an added level of medical understanding I bring to my patients.”” (To read, ‘Why Medical Estheticians Make the Perfect Threesome’ on the Charlotte’s Book web site, click here).
