Trends in the cosmetic field are changing rapidly, and the increased popularity of cosmetic medical treatments may cause estheticians to become concerned about losing some of their business.
However, the opposite is true; this is a golden opportunity for increasing your education and broadening your client base. There are many ways that you can assist with cosmetic medical procedures. Patients appreciate the extra attention to detail that can be provided through the expertise of an esthetician, and they often become regular clients of the esthetician who assists them with these treatments.
Skin rejuvenation is a process that helps decrease the visible signs of aging, including photodamage, fine lines, wrinkles, and loose or sagging skin. There are many methods used to provide skin rejuvenation, including surgery, cosmetic fillers, neurotoxin inhibitors and laser rejuvenation. There are several lasers to choose from for skin rejuvenation, such as intense pulsed light (IPL), visible light lasers and ablative lasers. IPL and visible light lasers are more commonly used for removing discolorations on the skin, such as pigmentation or telangectasia. Ablative laser treatments can be beneficial for all signs of aging, including pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and loose skin caused by a reduction of collagen.
