Do you own a skin care business or are you an esthetician wishing for new opportunities? Discover the business, treatments and skills needed to work in a medical setting.
Estheticians have an increased value to the medical profession now more than ever. The role of the esthetician in a clinical setting be it surgical consultation, medi-spa, or general practice office is a fast-growing one. Pre- and post-operative care is oftentimes a secondary concern, despite the fact that it is absolutely crucial to the overall health and well-being of the patient/client and a requisite regimen toward realizing the results desired or promised from the medical procedure. Demand continues to grow for non-surgical services including chemical peels and microdermabrasion. In addition, physicians are offering cosmetic treatments, pre-and post-surgical treatments, and skin care products. For the esthetician and medical professional alike, this book emphasizes a working philosophy that esthetic treatment should benefit the mental and emotional well-being of the patient/client, along with healing the body.
