Beyond Skin-Deep: Why Becoming an Esthetician in 2023 Is the Hottest Ticket in Town

Becoming an esthetician is a great career choice for anyone, whether you are pursuing your passion after years of waiting, fresh out of high school, or looking for a high-paying job that will not land you in a ridiculous amount of debt. There are many benefits to starting a career in esthetics. Being an esthetician helps you form close relationships with your clients, and this makes it a very rewarding career. You will quickly build your own client base which opens the doors to the potential of starting your own business. Here are eight reasons pursuing your esthetician certification is an excellent plan for 2023.

  1. Skincare is always in style. Beauty trends may come and go in this world, but the basis for all of them is excellent skin care. Having soft, smooth, radiant skin will never fall out of fashion, and this equals job security for skincare specialists like estheticians.
  2. The demand for estheticians is currently skyrocketing. More and more people are making skincare a priority these days with anti-aging treatments, acne treatment, waxing services, and facials and that means that licensed estheticians are in high demand and will continue to be.
  3. It is a flexible career choice. You will find estheticians in many walks of life from working in a posh spa to working as a freelance celebrity makeup artist or even as a medical esthetician working alongside dermatologists in their practice. You can choose to work for someone else or start your own business. There are just so many options for a good esthetician.
  4. Estheticians have superpowers! Well, not really, but working in the field of skin care you do have the power to help people feel good about themselves by improving the appearance of their skin with various spa services such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermaplaning.  When you love the skin you are in it is hard to not feel terrific. That is a pretty special power to have.
  5. It is an outlet for creativity. You may not realize it but esthetics is a creative field. As a licensed esthetician you will be able to use your skills and knowledge to create custom skincare regimens for your clients that address their unique issues and needs. You will no doubt face some challenges where this creativity will be quite useful. All of this makes the job more enjoyable and fulfilling.
  6. Become an entrepreneur. Rather than working for someone else many newly licensed estheticians are choosing to start their own business by opening their own salon, spa, or clinic. This allows you to maximize your earning potential as well as gives you the flexibility of setting your own schedule.
  7. There are countless continuing education opportunities. With all of the advancements in skincare technologies and products there is always something new to learn in the field of esthetics, and the more you learn the more you will earn. Offering the latest products and treatments is a great way to bring new clients to you to build your business.
  8. It is a fast-tracked and focused education. Students at our Academy focus on acquiring the knowledge and learning the skills they will need to perform their job, operate a business, and communicate effectively with their clients. There is no money or time spent studying subjects that are not directly related to the career of an esthetician which allows you to complete your education in as little as 8 months.

As you can see, becoming an esthetician in 2023 is the hottest ticket in town! By providing your clients with high-quality products like the Dermalogica skincare line to use at home in a customized skincare routine, you can earn even more and help your clients maintain healthier, more beautiful skin between visits – that’s just good for business. There is no better advertising than word of mouth, and happy clients will not be able to stop themselves from sharing the joy you have brought to their life with others.
