A master aesthetician is a skin care specialist who has endured extensive training, combined with several years of experience in working as an esthetician to provide services such as performing facials, various hair removal procedures, exfoliation treatments, and many other beauty processes. Although the detailed requirements to become esthetics professionals can vary from state to state, there are still some general steps that a person has to take toward that career path. First of all, a person has to possess a high school diploma or GED. Then, it is required that a person completes a certain number of clinical hours and successfully complete a written and a practical test to become licensed in the state where they plan to practice. It usually takes about six months to a year to complete the full certification.


Most aesthetics specialist work in various conditions and locations. Although it is common for a high number of master aestheticians to work in salons and spas, with the correct skills and expertise, they are not just limited to that particular environment. Some skin-care specialists expand their career to practicing in physician's offices or out-patient care centers, demonstrating products in department stores, or traveling to different clientèle locations. The salary can range anywhere from $35,000 to $44,000 per year plus tips and bonuses.

As with settling in any chosen career, there can be advantages as well as disadvantages. There are some great things about becoming a master esthetics specialist, such as building lasting relationships with satisfied customers, having great job options in choices to work at luxury spas, resorts, or beauty boutiques, and having flexible schedules. On the other hand some disadvantages would be working in a competitive beauty industry, lower pay in the beginning, and enduring physical strains on the body, due to the constant use of the hands, combined with long hours of standing.
There are several accredited schools that offer the program at lower costs than traditional universities. If a person enjoys working with his or her hands to make people feel positive and look beautiful, becoming a master of esthetics would be an ideal career choice.
