Taking the step from Beautician training to Aesthetician is a big one and requires a great deal of commitment and skill. Having said that, it is a jump which can be both rewarding and beneficial to your career – allowing you to deliver a high quality service to consumers who are looking for more effective and long-lasting procedures as a means of enhancing and/or retaining their youthful looks and aesthetic appearance.
We are of course, talking about Botox and other such beauty procedures.
What is an Aesthetic Practitioner?
An Aesthetic Practitioner is a specially trained practitioner who specialises in assisting with clinical procedures and patient care. They are able to carry out dermal filler, sculptra, fat dissolving and mesotherapy injections, as well as laser hair removal and other body contouring procedures which are typically regarded as non-invasive.
When compared with the role of a Beautician, the best way to define the role of an Aesthetic Practitioner is to consider the scope of possibility in terms of the procedures that each is allowed to do. To be a Beautician, you must go through the necessary training in order to understand the aesthetic features of the body and face and how to enhance each area through different treatments. An Aesthetic Practitioner takes this one step further and is able to utilise the skills to perform more permanent procedures through injections as well as surface level treatments. This is achieved through Botox training, dermal filler training, and lip filler training.
