But do you know exactly what an esthetician does? To put it simply, estheticians are a skin’s best friend. If you’re into skincare then you’ve most likely heard of the trend glazed donut skin”. If you are obsessed with this trend as much as the rest of the world, read on to find out more about how you can help others achieve that look!

What Services does an Esthetician Provide?

Estheticians go to school to become skin experts. They’re trained in enhancing the skin through different services and treatments. They know the ins and outs of skin and they actually understand the science behind it. There are so many services an esthetician can provide! Some of these services are:

  • Facial treatments: Facials are a great way to get the glowy, dewy look. There are so many services provided within facial treatments that are relative to your skin type, which is why they’re so popular. Facials are a great option for everyone.
  • Hair removal: Most people find that hair removal on themselves is an inconvenience. And waxing yourself isn’t really an ideal situation. That’s why we leave it to the professionals. Estheticians can wax a variety of areas on your face and body, and it can be a great exfoliant for your skin as well since it also removes dead skin cells.
  • Microdermabrasion: An exfoliating treatment. Microdermabrasion is a great way to renew skin tone and texture. It can improve fine lines/wrinkles, pore size, acne scars, sun damage, and more.
  • Chemical exfoliation: This is used to get rid of dead skin cells. If your skin is feeling dull, this can help give your face that brightening effect.
  • Extractions: Pores get filled with all kinds of gunk and unfortunately, clogged pores can cause acne. Extractions clear out your blackheads. Caution: it may be painful, but it will make your skin look and feel smoother.
  • And more: There are so many other services that estheticians can provide.
