Are Estheticians Skincare Specialists?

Estheticians, unlike cosmetologists, have the chance to delve deep into skin care analysis, treatments, and conditions during their education. There are many elements that go into being a specialist or expert in your craft, and just like many other professionals, estheticians can achieve that, too!

So, Are They Specialists?

Yes! They can be. Depending on where you work and what you do, your title might be, as an esthetician, Skincare Specialist. However, estheticians are not limited to just skincare! You may not know that estheticians are trained in a variety of services and techniques. Here are a few services a licensed esthetician might choose to pursue.

1. Skincare

Estheticians should be well versed in skincare treatments and analysis. Knowing skin types, allergies, and conditions can help estheticians make a better decision when advising clients what treatments to have done. Client consultation is a big part of being a skincare specialist. Additionally, they learn facials that can help relax and rejuvenate the skin, making a client's natural glow brighter.

2. Hair Removal

Waxing is another service that estheticians should know well. Many areas of the body can be waxed, but lately, the most popular area is the eyebrows. Everywhere in the world, women and men want the perfect arched brows they see on the likes of Kylie and Kendall Jenner.

3. Makeup Application

Makeup application is often a skill that estheticians love. Makeup application, unlike skincare, is less scientific and more like art. Freelance makeup artistry, working in a salon, working a spa, or owning your own business can be career options if you decide to become a makeup artist with your esthetics education.
