Estheticians: What They Do and How They Can Benefit You
What Is Esthetics?
Esthetics is the study of aesthetics, which is the science of beauty that involves non-invasive cosmetic and skin treatments. Aesthetics are based on a branch of philosophy exploring the connection between the senses and matters related to art, beauty, and taste. Estheticians are responsible for skin health and appearance. Many estheticians also work with plastic surgeons to provide even more beauty treatments.
What Services Do Estheticians Offer?
The Nima Institute offers advanced facial treatments that go beyond conventional steaming, waxing, extraction, chemical peels, and pore cleansing. Services include laser hair reduction, botox, cool sculpting, and various enhancements for a more youthful appearance.
At our spa, we provide many services to improve not only the look and feel of your skin, but also its overall health. If you’re wanting to focus on anti-aging work specifically, we can tighten and change how your aging skin looks.
Spa estheticians provide a variety of massages including hot or cold stone massages, foot spa reflexology, gua-sha, and medi cupping.
The Difference Between Basic and Master Estheticians
In basic programs, students acquire all of the necessary abilities needed to begin a professional career. You typically start by learning about fundamental anatomy and physiology, histology, and facial devices and methods. Not only will you learn about makeup, but spray tans as well! The Nima Institute wants to make sure our students are ready for any challenge by giving them a wide range of exposure to services and opportunities both on and off campus.
After completing basic courses, master estheticians can choose to enroll in more specialized classes. These focus on laser hair removal, LED therapy, and chemical peels–just to name a few examples. Master Esthetic students with our school work with Professional Estheticians that help hone your craft. By the end of this course, you will know more about botox and cosmetic fillers and how to use them efficiently. Plus, there will be opportunities for hands-on training to solidify your knowledge.
Where Do They Work?
Some esthetician students may also take cosmetology courses in order to offer multiple services in a salon. Estheticians can work in various settings, such as medical spas, dermatology clinics, surgical arts centers, plastic surgery offices and beauty schools.
Estheticians who have been properly trained can work in a variety of settings and may even wish to start their own spas. When choosing an esthetician, find out what sort of license they have and what area of expertise they possess.
Benefits of seeing an esthetician
There are many benefits to seeing an esthetician on a regular basis, some of which include:
- Improved skin health – Estheticians can help improve the overall health of your skin by providing facials and other treatments that cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate the skin.
- Younger-looking skin – Estheticians can help you achieve younger-looking skin by providing treatments that reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging.
- Radiant skin – Estheticians can help you achieve radiant skin by providing treatments that promote circulation and cell turnover.
- Clearer skin – Estheticians can help you achieve clearer skin by providing treatments that unclog pores and remove impurities.
- Relaxation – In addition to improving the appearance of your skin, esthetician treatments can also provide a much-needed sense of relaxation and stress relief.
Are the Professionals Trained and Licensed?
All 50 states in the U.S. require licensure for estheticians, though the training requirements differ from state to state– some may only require 300 hours of accredited learning while others might demand 1,500 hours.
After completing their training, students must pass both physical and written exams. However, even after they have met these educational requirements, estheticians should take post-graduate courses to ensure that they are always up-to-date with the latest skin care developments.
