What Is Medical Aesthetics?

Broadly speaking, medical aesthetics includes all advanced skin treatments that are focused on improving the cosmetic appearance of patients. Medical aesthetics sits in a niche in between the beauty industry and plastic surgery.

Typically a medical director presides over the medical spa or medical clinic in which these advanced skin care treatments are performed.
Acne, wrinkles, skin tags, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage are just some of the skin concerns that can be treated with medical aesthetic modalities.

Medical aestheticians provide their clients with effective solutions without requiring any surgery.

Prerequisites for the Medical Aesthetics Diploma

  • Personal interview to determine goals and suitability

Testimonial

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!
