We’re continuing our talk about the Full Specialist program offered by AAC. One career option is a Medical Skin Care Specialist. We talked briefly last week about Skin Care Specialists (Estheticians) who work in the medical field, assisting such people as those with damaged skin or burn victims. In this setting you work in a medical office side-by-side with a doctor, preparing patients for surgery which is designed to address skin issues. I once knew an Esthetician who worked with a well-known plastic surgeon in Atlanta. She had her own area in the medical offices and consulted with patients prior to any surgery to answer skin-related questions and to let them know what to expect after surgery. She visited with the out-of-town patients at their hotels to ensure they went back home with the knowledge and products to care for their skin properly.
Upon successful completion of the AAC Full Specialist program, you will be a certified Esthetician. This title sets you apart and lets your clients know that you have completed training successfully, and have demonstrated the skills to participate in advanced skin care procedures.
This title allows you to work in private practice, spas, and medical offices, depending on their preference and the types of services they offer. Some services you may perform include dermal filling, dermabrasion, Botox injections, permanent make-up, pre-surgical skincare, facials, post-surgical skincare, and hair removal. As I’m sure you know, in a medical setting you will be providing services under the supervision of a medical doctor. You won’t be writing prescriptions or offering medical advice. But you will be making a difference in the lives of your clients.
Nail Specialist. Through the Full Specialist program you also become a Nail Specialist. When you think of nails, you automatically think of a manicure/pedicure. A Nail Specialist does much more. A professional Nail Specialist has a loyal clientele that depends on him/her to maintain their nails (hands and toes) in a healthy condition – including selecting the right creams or oils for each particular client’s hands and feet.
Of course, a manicure or pedicure can also bring out the creative side of you. These days many clients are looking for designed nails with small paintings or jewels included. You may also be asked to apply artificial nail tips or acrylics. No matter where you live, you’ll find there is a demand for a professional Nail Specialist.
Beauty Supply Representative is another career option. If you’re vivacious and energetic and looking to use your beauty school education as a foot-in-the-door to a lucrative career selling beauty and skin care supplies. As an Account Manager for a beauty supply company you will work closely with salon owners and hair stylists in your assigned territory.
When you visit a salon or spa, you will be expected to have a professional demeanor and in-depth product knowledge. You will need outstanding interpersonal skills and will need to be comfortable with public speaking. On many occasions you will be called upon to provide in-salon educational seminars about new and existing products. You will also work closely with salon owners to develop and executive strategies to help them grow their business. Really, you become a business partner and resource to your clients to ensure they have access to all of the tools they need to provide complete satisfaction to each and every one of their customers.
You can work anywhere. As I was researching the availability of positions for Nail and Skin Specialists, I ran across an ad for a “Female Beauty Consultant for Bath & Beauty Section in Hyperstore” in Delhi, India. The world is your oyster.
I always want to remind you there are a variety of ways to qualify for financial aid to pay for your beauty school education and our financial aid counselor is available to help you find the one(s) that are right for you. You can also review Financial Aid information on our website.
