In the growing beauty and aesthetics industry, the demand for professionals with expertise in
advanced aesthetics is growing. If you’ve been contemplating a career change and are passionate about helping others look and feel their best, the field of advanced aesthetics might be the perfect fit for you. This blog post will explore the exciting world of advanced aesthetics and help you determine if it aligns with your career goals. We will also answer common questions such as, “What is an advanced aesthetic?” and “How do I become an Aesthetician in Canada?” But before we dive in, let’s clarify a few terms.

Advanced Aesthetics vs. Esthetician: What’s the Difference?

Before diving into the world of advanced aesthetics, it’s essential to understand the distinction between aesthetics and estheticians. Aesthetics is the British English spelling of the world, whereas esthetics is the American English spelling. Both aesthetics and esthetics can be used interchangeably, and you will find that different schools and spas in the same country will use different spelling. There is no right or wrong answer; we use the British Spelling Aesthetics at International Beauty Institute. 

The definition of aesthetics and esthetics refers to the study or theory of beauty. This definition branches out into all the diplomas and certificates available at the International Beauty Institute.

What Is an Advanced Aesthetician?

An advanced aesthetician is a highly trained beauty professional specializing in advanced medical aesthetics. They deeply understand cosmetic procedures and possess the skills to perform treatments such as laser therapy, chemical peels, and body treatments. Advanced aesthetics professionals aim to enhance their clients’ appearance while prioritizing safety and achieving natural-looking results. The term advanced is not a designation. However, it refers to the experience of an aesthetician.
