Indulgence: Why You Need To See A Professional With Medical Aesthetics Training

By: Annelise Vintila

Being an avid film junkie, I love researching backgrounds on famous directors when I came across the wonderful late Nora Ephron’s essays. She was explaining how she keeps it simple when it comes to the manners of self-keeping, “I have cream for my face. I have lotion for my arms and legs. I have oil for my bath. I have Vaseline for my feet.” This quote resonated with me because I feel very similar; apart from a couple of designer lipsticks and foundations, my grooming routine is a very small part of my day. My mother on the other hand, has been fashionable and elegant since birth, regularly going to salons and spas to upkeep her lifestyle. Numerous times she has tried to impart her lifestyle on me, but it has never really stuck, until I got my first grey hair. I had just turned 22 when my mother quickly plucked the grey and told me I’m getting older. It didn’t feel good.

Medical Aesthetics Courses Can Benefit Everyone

Mom kept pestering me to ‘just go to a salon and pamper yourself, you’re obviously stressed’, and I did; I tried a new salon she recommended, and I fell in love. It is one thing to smother yourself in a $2 facemask you got from a drugstore and one thing to have an aesthetician gently stroke your face with the best products on the market. A medical aesthetician must have medical aesthetics training since they must deal with sensitive dermatological issues, all the while ensuring their client is relaxed. In order to get the prestigious medical aesthetics diploma you must complete modules in skin care, manicure and pedicure, botox and dermal fillers, and the most important module, interpersonal skills.

Pampering Yourself is Crucial

An aesthetician must be able to deal with a diverse range of client issues, that is why it is crucial to have the best education through where each student must excel in their medical aesthetics courses before progressing in the industry. A medical aesthetician has the power to change the outlook of a client; just like my aesthetician who did my facemask, everyone should walk out of their appointment feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Every man and woman should feel good about themselves and take the time to invest in their well-being.

Recharge, Renew

I might not be at my mother’s level of expertise in self-pampering, but I have learned to appreciate the indulgence in self-care. A medical aesthetician can help you find the best approaches to skin care, hair and make-up, nutrition and life longevity. They are medically trained to ensure their clients’ best interest, and they act at times as psychiatrists, healers and nurses. As I get older, I understand why my mother continues to see specialists to feel pampered; all things are done better by the experts. It is crucial to indulge once in a while, restoring your body to its best form.

I finished my lash lift and tint course and it was the best 🙂 the staff I spoke with before was super friendly and inviting and she answered all my questions before I decided to take it. The video instructions are more than helpful and I had no questions by the time I left. There’s even a support contact I could have reached out to if I had any questions during the course. If you’re thinking about enrolling I would say go for it!
