Medical Esthetician In Miami
We want you to leave feeling vibrant, confident, and youthful.
A medical esthetician offers specialized treatments for skin, facial, and various other areas of the body. Estheticians provide a combination of spa-level treatments with medical-grade training to help improve and maintain the appearance and health of our patient’s skin.
What Is a Medical Esthetician?
A medical esthetician trains in an academic environment to focus on facial skincare in a medical setting. Working in the context of a dermatologist’s or a plastic surgeon’s office, the medical esthetician can offer a wide range of services to improve the surface, condition, and health of the facial skin. While most patients are typically visiting for cosmetic treatments, these treatments can also be great for burn victims, chemotherapy effects, cancer patients, and people suffering from other skin traumas.
What Does a Medical Esthetician Do?
Medical estheticians provide treatments to patients with skin conditions, trauma, and aging skin to rejuvenate the appearance and health of the skin. Medical estheticians can administer a variety of treatments that a standard esthetician cannot such as chemical peels, laser therapy, Emsculpt NEO, and Botox injections.
Our medical esthetician meets by appointment with patients who are interested in improving the health of their skin. They examine the skin for acne, roughness, dryness, wrinkles, and other troublesome issues. After a skin examination, a medical esthetician can recommend skin treatments that may be beneficial to the patient as well as a skincare regimen to address specific skin concerns.
The Difference Between Estheticians and Cosmetologists
A cosmetologist is also a trained professional that must attend school and earn a license before being able to practice. Their responsibilities typically include cutting hair, scalp treatments, makeup application, hair styling, manicures, and skincare, but not medical treatments. The cosmetologist often cuts hair in a salon and works as a manicurist, hairstylist, or nail technician.
On the other hand, a medical esthetician is a licensed professional who trains specifically in skin care services and skin conditions. Before treating the skin, the medical esthetician must undergo medical esthetician training. Once they pass the certification test, they are qualified to assess and analyze skin conditions and apply facial and body treatments to solve skin problems. Their approach focuses on medical treatments instead of cosmetic solutions.
Medical Esthetician Services
- Emsculpt NEO: Emsculpt NEO is two treatments in one: a non-invasive body shaping procedure for any part of the body that provides muscle definition and fat elimination. The Emsculpt machine emits high-frequency radio waves and electromagnetic technology to cause fat reduction and skin tightening to a particular body location. It works to build muscle, too. The Emsculpt NEO firms and tones the neck, arms, waist, buttocks, thighs, and other body areas.
- DiamondGlow Facial: The DiamondGlow facial treatment is a revolutionary 3-in-1 skin treatment that uses diamond-tipped technology to transform facial skin. The medical esthetician chooses from six diamond tips to exfoliate more than just surface skin. At the same time, the proprietary suction cleans the pores, and the DiamondGlow machine replenishes the moisture and hydrates the skin with soothing serums. This facial treatment is the only skin treatment that stays with your skin for up to six weeks for a more youthful, dewy appearance. After the initial three appointments, you can maintain the results with a DiamondGlow facial treatment every three months.
- Latisse: Get fuller, longer, more lush eyelashes with Latisse eye serum. Latisse is the first treatment to be approved by the FDA to address eyelashes that have grown skimpy and discolored. After you clean the facial area, apply Latisse once per day on the upper eyelashes. Starting at the inside, run the medication along the upper lash line to the outside eye. Clinical studies show that over 70% of Latisse users reported thicker, darker eyelashes after several weeks of use. If you get Botox, dermal fillers, or another dermatology treatment, Latisse eye serum is for you.
- Scar revision: Scar revision is a procedure that aims to blend a scar with the surrounding skin tone and texture. A scar that affects your appearance also affects your self-esteem. Scar revision treatment consists of topical gels that lessen the look and color of the scar, dermal fillers that can plump up a concave scar, collagen injections that cause the scar to produce collagen for skin renewal, and surface treatments.
The following surface treatments produce the best results for scar revision:
- The medical esthetician performs dermabrasion which polishes the skin surface to make the scar less noticeable.
- Chemical peels penetrate the skin’s surface to peel off the top layer of skin for a smoother skin surface underneath.
- Skin bleaching lightens the surface of the skin to make scars less visible.
- Light therapy or laser treatments change the skin surface to let new skin cells grow at the scar site.
- Dermaplaning: Dermaplaning removes the upper layer of skin to reduce acne scars, produce smoother skin, and lessen fine wrinkles. The medical esthetician uses an exfoliating blade to scrape the dead cells and hair from the face for more youthful-looking skin. Dermaplaning removes fine hairs that trap oil and dirt and promotes smoother skin.
- Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers help to restore facial balance by adding volume and contour where volume has been lost. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected into the skin that can address a number of common concerns that patients have such as smoothing of deep under-eye circles, volumization of the lips, lifting of cheekbones, and nasolabial folds.
