Licensed Skin Care Professionals
 
 
 

Aestheticians are a unique breed of skin care specialists. If, you meet an aesthetician within any group of cosmetologists, nurses or medical group, you will find she is likely going to stand out with pride. A major contributing factor behind the pride of an aesthetician is that they know while they are not dermatologists and in 99.9 % of the would not want to be , they are skin care specialists of the face and body as it relates to facial aesthetics.

Aestheticians have had great successes and some setbacks through the past 20 years. One of the major contributing factors for aestheticians becoming a more respectable and an identifiable group of skin care specialists is their growing direct working relationships with physicians.

An aestheticians license work requires each licensee to have outstanding communication, facial aesthetics skills and business savvy. They have completed a specialized course of instruction of a minimum 750 to 1200 hours. They continue their specialized courses in Facials Aesthetics, Chemical Peeling Procedures, Medical Aesthetics, Laser Skills, Clinical Skin Care Management, Permanent Cosmetics and Electrology, only after they have received their basic program.

Licensed Skin Care Professionals are truly a unique group of specialized skin care providers when you compare their numbers to cosmetologists. They are not hairdressers.

They do not perform under an " operators license." Aestheticians practice " Facial Aesthetics" and have strengthened their ability to obtain competive skin care roles through organizations like Aestheticians International Association ( AIA) and obtaining Clinical Skin Care Education .

The aestheticians training is hundreds of hours in comparison to the cosmetologists which is about 2-6-8 hours. Although a cosmetologist may legally perform a " facial" under their license they are not aestheticians nor are they licensed skin care specialists.

Aestheticians have had to bridge their backgrounds from nursing and includes an Facial Aesthetics Instructors License to become better qualified skin care providers in the health care system.

In the State of Texas there are approximately 84 Facial Aesthetics Instructors and approximately 1200 licensed aestheticians and only 16 approved TDLR CEU Providers.

What are the problems?

The number 1 problem is that the aesthetician is still regualted through Cosmetology State Board. If , a cosmetologist instructor teaches an aesthetician " Facial Aesthetics" then that instructor should be an aesthetician and a facial aesthetics instructor . The best aesthetics instructors are finding more opportunity for personal and professional growth through teaching nurses, aestheticians and physicians in  Medical Aesthetics Programs offered in clinics, hospitals and Medical Aesthetics FACE ®Conference.
