Why do I need an esthetician?
As defined by Webster’s dictionary an esthetician or aesthetician is a person who is knowledgeable about the nature and appreciation of beauty, especially in art. So why does that mean you need one? What does that very vague definition actually mean for your skin and body? Let’s break it down and find out!
A person who is knowledgeable. Estheticians undergo training that includes how to understand the types of skin, the selection of proper products, development of individualized protocols for both in spa and home treatment. Good estheticians stay on top of current trends, machines and advancements in products. As well as continuing their education, attending training and industry conventions.
Nature and appreciation of beauty. Our skin in our largest organ and usually one of the first things people notice about us. As an esthetician it is our job to understand the nature of that organ, and how both internal and external factors can affect our skin. The primary goal of any esthetician is to help their client meet their skin care needs, by treating the whole person, talking about diet, exercise, and even stress.
Art. As an esthetician we must understand the art that goes into working with our client’s skin. Skin is constantly changing ever evolving and fluctuating. Customizing each treatment for your clients needs takes an understanding of the client and recognizing changes as they happen. Estheticians have access to professional products that they can customize for each person. An esthetician can put together a home regimen that is easy to follow and will compliment the work that is done in the treatment room.
Finally, having an esthetician that you work with on a regular basis can not only save you time and money, but help make changes to your skin that can keep you from resorting to more aggressive treatments. Estheticians can help you navigate the product world, by making recommendations that keep you from wasting time and money. Many of us buy something that won’t work for our skin. We have products we bought sitting in our bathroom cabinet that we used once and now it sits, never to be used again. But wasn’t the packaging pretty ;)
