What is a Medical Aesthetician
Medical Aestheticians, also known as clinical or paramedical aestheticians, are state licensed estheticians working in a clinical setting under the supervision of a medical doctor after completing advanced training to use cosmetic lasers and other medical skincare modalities. Plastic surgeons and dermatologists commonly employ medical aestheticians to perform procedures including medical peels, cosmetic laser and light-based treatments under their supervision.
A Medical Aesthetician is expected to have a deep understanding and knowledge in skin, cosmetic lasers, light therapy and other similar technologies.
The responsibilities of a medical aesthetician include in-depth skin analysis, evaluating the skincare concerns of a client, consulting with a medical doctor to develop the best treatment plan and performing treatments. Laser Hair removal and Photofacials are among the most common services performed, as well as, treating acne, rosacea, fine lines and wrinkles.
Who Can perform medical aesthetic treatments
Each state has different requirements regarding what type of licensed professional can do what type of treatment in a medical spa and medical aesthetics environment. Under Illinois law, a physician may delegate non-ablative laser and medical aesthetic procedures to any professionally trained and qualified individual. Medical aesthetic treatments are often performed in a physician’s office by licensed estheticians, registered nurses, and other medical professionals working under the physicians license.
