What is an Esthetician?

An esthetician is someone that specializes in the health and beautification of skin. If you want to get technical, an esthetician refers to the “application of various techniques to the epidermal layer of the human body. Estheticians are not doctors or dermatologists. Estheticians have to go through completely different schooling than a dermatologist does and give different services than what a dermatologist provides.

Peels do great to help brighten and tighten your skin. If you are noticing that your skin is looking dull, beginning to age, or losing it’s “light” then using a peel can help.
