Job Description for Licensed Medical Aesthetician

Licensed medical aestheticians are generally hired by clinics that perform plastic surgery, medical spas, and similar institutions. Because facilities vary in what they offer, knowledge of cosmetic surgery techniques needed varies depending on the employer. Licensed medical aestheticians consult with patients about skincare regimens and recommend patients for certain treatments; in some cases, they perform treatments such as skin peels, facial peels, and microdermabrasion. They generally work full time in a clinic setting. These professionals usually report to - and consult with - a physician for patient issues, treatment; they may also assist during certain procedures. The aestheticians may be asked to help keep records of patients or log data into a computer as well.
