Where are Medical Aestheticians* Employed?
There are many opportunities for well-trained medical aestheticians*. The medical spa industry, which is growing in leaps and
bounds, is a major source of employment for medical aestheticians*. Dermatologists offices and plastic surgery practices offer
employment opportunities as well, providing a built-in clientele who are focused on skin health and anti-aging treatments and
regimes. Medical aestheticians are an integral part of the circle of care these facilities strive to provide. Medical aesthetics is such a
booming industry that even primary care practices and dentist’s offices are providing these services as a way to attract more
patients and increase revenue that is not dependent on insurance reimbursement.
Medical aestheticians* who have an entrepreneurial spirit can create their own opportunities by contracting themselves out to
medical practices that don’t yet have a skincare practice and partner with a physician to build a mutually beneficial skincare practice.
*Note: There is no legal designation for medical aesthetician in the U.S. at this time.
