what is a MEDICAL ESTHETICIAN?
Licensed Medical Estheticians (LME) are estheticians with extensive training in skincare. They have a deep knowledge of dermatology and are trained to use advanced skin rejuvenation techniques. Compared to a general esthetician, a medical esthetician has the ability to deliver more dramatic results through treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion.
what can a Medical Esthetician do for you?
Medical Estheticians address all skin concerns but primarily focus on facial skin care. Many patients seek LME care for the following reasons:
- Age spots
- Graceful aging
- Skin analysis
- Eczema (we encourage you to combine treatments with our ND)
- Unwanted hair growth
what DOES IT LOOK LIKE TO WORK WITH AN LME?
Your first session with our Medical Esthetician will leave you in awe of your skin's details. A magnified analysis of your skin's "problem areas" will provide you and your clinician with a foundation. Moving forwards, your esthetician will formulate appropriate treatment steps to help you reach your beauty goals. This may include a variety of techniques including, but not limited to:
- Chemical peels
- Facial treatments
- Hair removal
- Specialty facials
- Makeup application
- LED therapy
- Oxygen treatments
Keep in mind that the skin cycle is about 27 days so be patient, sit back, and enjoy the process!
