The beauty industry is evolving quickly. Specialists and doctors discover new treatments that produce better results almost every year. These developments do not only elevate the industry, but also raise the bar for estheticians.
For instance, basic estheticians can perform general beauty treatments. In Utah, they may acquire licenses to perform skin care treatments, hair, makeup, and color treatments.
If they wish to perform new procedures that are outside the scope of practice for a basic esthetician license, however, they need to pursue further studies. It is only after they finish training and acquire a license that they may earn the title of Master Esthetician and all the perks that go with it.
Science-Based Specialization on Skin Care and Beauty Treatments
The Master Esthetician program is a 1200-hour course. Those who wish to progress as a Master Esthetician in Utah should enroll in a state-certified esthetician certification school to meet licensing requirements.
The program provides estheticians with hands-on training for advanced skin care treatments like chemical peeling, LASER therapy, and light therapy. It also educates students on a range of cosmetic treatments, such as cellulite reduction, plastic and reconstructive surgery, and full-body lymphatic drainage.
The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) also says that the program includes lectures on advanced anatomy, physiology, chemistry, and skin care. This is why upon being certified, Master Estheticians can work with dermatologists and plastic surgeons.
It is important to note that Master Estheticians cannot and should not perform surgery or diagnose on behalf of these doctors, but they can offer supplementary treatment to patients.
Master Estheticians Do What Basic Estheticians Can’t Legally Perform
Licenses are in place to make sure that only qualified persons perform skin and cosmetic treatments. Without Master Estheticians, clinics, spas, and salons won’t have the capacity to offer new treatments that are not included in a 600-hour basic esthetician course.
It’s safe to assume that as the industry keeps developing new anti-aging therapies, the education and certification standards for a Master Esthetician certification will also increase accordingly.
