Estheticians, also called Esthiologists or skin-care specialists, strive to make their clients look and feel younger and more attractive. They cleanse and beautify skin with facials and full-body treatments; apply makeup; remove facial or body hair with hot wax; give head and neck massages and may, with special training, perform microdermabrasion to remove imperfections and signs of age. Many are required to sell skin care products; those who run their own shops are often entrepreneurs involved in all phases of business management and marketing.
Expected Growth of the Industry
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that the job outlook for estheticians is very favorable, with an expected growth of 38% between 2008 and 2018 (www.bls.gov). This boom in growth is attributed to an increasing population and the rising demand for skin treatments for medical and cosmetic purposes. The BLS added that entry-level licensed workers have good job opportunities because of the need to replace workers who leave the occupation.
The average annual salary for a skincare specialist was $32,030, according to the BLS. The industry that employed the most estheticians was personal care services. The top-paying employers were doctor's offices, which paid estheticians an annual average salary of $39,540.
