Medical Esthetician Program

What is a Medical Esthetician?

A Medical Esthetician’s role spans from administrative to procedural activities within a spa setting. A medical aesthetician specializes in skincare, particularly facial skincare. Greeting clients, scheduling and confirming esthetic appointments and communicating messages for co-workers and management is part of the day-to-day responsibilities. Estheticians will also promote treatments, services and sessions as well as programs, promotions and discounts available to clients. Estheticians will have working knowledge and understanding of all services and products while educating and informing the clients in these areas.

The Medical Estheticians’ main duties include performing skin analysis and facial treatments, applying make-up and performing manicures and pedicures. Other responsibilities include hair removal, spa body treatments and various types of cosmetic massage. Estheticians practice and uphold standards of appropriate infection prevention and sanitary control practice in order to prevent the transmission of contamination while performing all treatments. Other duties include performing preparatory work and properly cleaning and restocking rooms and dispensaries as required, as well as controlling and monitoring inventory.
