Licensed medical aestheticians are generally hired by clinics that perform plastic surgery, medical spas, and similar institutions.

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.
