Debunk Medical-Aesthetic

Medical-aesthetic is practiced by a dermatologist or a doctor who has been duly trained in plastic surgery; or a registered nurse who is supervised by one of these two professionals. An aesthetician without these specific trainings is not allowed to provide medico-aesthetic care.

Medical-aesthetic includes all injectable filling products (Botox®, Restylane®, Juvéderm®, etc.) and chemical peels. When it comes to using devices like IPL, microdermabrasion, and lasers, an aesthetician’s activities are limited: strict rules exist and technicians cannot go beyond their field of expertise.

Cosmetic products using the name “Medical-aesthetic” contain no ingredient with higher concentrations or particular medical qualities. If they do, make sure the DIN (Drug Identification Number) is indicated. It corresponds to a pharmaceutical product.

Reminder

What did you do today? I can almost hear you … 2 facials, 1 waxing, 1 manicure …

But … did you make your phone calls to your clients for follow-up care on treatment and  products you sold to them?

Have you consulted the files of your clients for tomorrow to see where you are on their treatment progression and products you will sell to them?

Did you confirm their appointments 1-2 days in advance?

Have you communicated with a client that you haven’t heard from in a long time just to  reconnect?

No? Add these tasks immediately in your today’s TO DO list.
