In the future, he sees himself continuing to stay on top of the clinical products, equipment and treatments that are available to licensed estheticians. “When something is new, you have to investigate it thoroughly. I challenge many things that are out there to decide which really are useful. Everything in skin care is a gray area, and what works for one person may not for another,” Winer points out.

He recommends taking classes, as well as reading books and journals. “A week should never go by when you are not reading about something new,” he asserts. Winer also urges estheticians to go to medical tradeshows, along with esthetic and spa shows, to keep up with the latest trends.

All in all, Winer persists at being one of the top clinical estheticians in the industry, although he admits that it isn’t always easy. “Not every day is booked solid and not every day is trouble-free, but skin care professionals are doing a great thing to heal people. If you’re passionate about and good at what you do, the money and luck will follow.”
