Professional estheticians provide health services at day spas and salons. They specialize in beautifying the skin which includes cosmetic skin treatments, makeup application, permanent makeup, eyelash extensions, aromatherapy, massages, body wraps, and hair removal.
An esthetic specialist can receive training for specific involved treatments such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels. Many of these are supervised by a medical doctor to ensure the process is done with total safety.
Estheticians must be licensed within their working state and must work for a range of two-hundred-sixty to nine-hundred hours of training. At the end of this process, they are given a written and hands-on exam. The most common course of work is treating mild cases of acne.
