So you may be wondering what is the difference between a dermatologist and esthetician? Dermatologists and estheticians are skin care professionals. Study.com states, “The key distinction is that dermatologists are medical doctors and qualified to diagnose and treat medical conditions that affect the skin. Estheticians concentrate on the skin’s appearance and may use facials or other treatments to improve the skin’s appearance or care for problems such as acne.”
Dermatologists can treat medical conditions of the skin
Estheticians are trained to help treat the appearance of skin
Skinpen.com states, “Estheticians may work in spas, salons or medical settings under the direction of dermatologists.” You get the benefit of receiving a personalized skincare regimen when you visit an esthetician.. Some of the treatments estheticians can perform include extractions, waxing, dermaplaning, microneedling and Intense pulse light/lasers to treat a variety of issues. They also have a variety of facials that can treat many skin concerns such as acne or hyperpigmentation.
