What Does an Esthetician Do?

An esthetician, also called a facial specialist in Florida, is a skincare specialist who can examine the condition of your skin and perform treatments like facials, hair removal, and makeup application. Facial services include massaging and treating the face with lotions, creams, and oils. But, they can do more than just facials! Estheticians can work on the body as well, providing services like waxing and back treatments.

An esthetician can learn about:

  • Proper sterilization and sanitation procedures
  • Customized facial treatments, peels, and masks
  • Facial massage
  • Back treatments
  • Microdermabrasion treatments
  • Hair removal techniques
  • Waxing and tweezing techniques
  • Makeup artistry
  • And more

What Do You Need To Become an Esthetician?

If you want to become a licensed esthetician, you’ll first need to obtain training at a qualified school. While each state has different requirements, the state of Florida requires you to complete at least 260 hours of training. These hours ensure that you’ll receive all of the training you need to becoming an esthetician. Find out more about how you can become an esthetician in Florida!

Is a Cosmetologist an Esthetician?

A cosmetologist is different than an esthetician, because an esthetician can specialize in skincare. They can learn skincare services such as makeup, facials, waxing and exfoliation. A cosmetologist can learn about skin care too, but it’s not their main focus. A cosmetologist can also learn about hair and nail services.

Esthetician vs. Aesthetician

We see the word esthetician and aesthetician used to refer to skincare specialists. So what is the difference between an esthetician and an aesthetician?

The two terms are interchangeable and are both commonly used today. The spelling can be associated with culture and language. You might want to find out how your state spells it for the licensure.

Can Estheticians Do Nails?

Base esthetician programs in Florida typically don’t include nail training, but there is a program for those interested in learning nails. At Artistic Nails & Beauty Academy, our students have the unique opportunity of pursuing a career as a Nail Technician or as a Full Specialist. Our Full Specialist Program is a combination of nails and skincare! It covers knowledge of nail care such as pedicures, manicures, and nail art.
