Technically, estheticians are skin care professionals who provide dedicated care to their patients’ skin. Their main objective is to ensure that that the appearance of a patient’s skin is maintained appropriately and that any skin related issues or diseases are managed effectively. You need to possess a license in cosmetology to work as an esthetician.
