[Video] Survey Says: Med Spas Value Estheticians


Estheticians bring a lot of value to medical spas. In fact, esthetician services are the second highest source of revenue in the medical spa industry, according to the 2017 Medical Spa State of the Industry Report, released this week by the American Med Spa Association (AmSpa). 

The report also revealed that estheticians are the most common staff member in the industry, ahead of nurses, physicians and front desk staff.

According to the report, the medical spa industry is approaching $4 billion, and estheticians are clearly a big part of that. This is due to the high value they can add in regards to retention, skin care services and retail sales at a more affordable salary point than nurses or physicians.
