What Is a Medical Esthetician? The Importance of Guided Skincare

When you receive treatment of any kind, it is important that you only receive the best of services, by the best providers. Let’s dive into what training our estheticians have.



You should always get skin care treatments from a licensed medical esthetician. It is important to know that licensure requirements are regulated on a State by State basis, and do vary by State. Many estheticians go above and beyond basic training to become more highly educated toward a job in the medical aesthetics field.

What Is a Licensed Medical Esthetician (LME)?

To understand what a licensed medical esthetician is, you first need to know what makes someone an Esthetician. A general esthetician has training focused on cosmetic treatments and general skincare and often works in a salon, spa, or skincare clinic. The esthetician offers various low-impact services like waxing, body treatments, or facials. However, medical estheticians generally receive additional training and education beyond a general license in products, advanced facial treatments, and minor medical procedures like chemical peels or microneedling. 

How Services Are Provided

Medical estheticians offer their services at a Medical Spa or a medical office. Depending on the experience and training they receive, LME’s can offer a wide range of services to improve the condition of your skin. A medical esthetician typically works under the guidance of a physician.  A medical esthetician can also help with various skin conditions like trauma or rosacea. They can also help treat hormonal acne or other health conditions that would be seen in a doctor’s office.

At Azul® Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa, we are proud to share that our providers are medical estheticians and have undergone advanced training. 


Why Choose Guided Skincare? 

Guided skincare with a professional esthetician offers a holistic and individualized approach to maintaining and improving skin health. Regular appointments can contribute to long-term skin benefits and enhance your overall well-being. Here are some of the benefits of opting for guided skincare from a medical esthetician:

1. Training and Knowledge for Customized Skincare

Guided skincare from an LME allows you to enjoy services from a highly trained professional. Medical estheticians have deep knowledge of various skin concerns and what causes them, allowing them to create a customized treatment course. 

2. Access to Medical-Grade Skincare

Very often, recurring skin issues like rosacea, acne, or hyperpigmentation do not go away with a simple facial. While there are many over-the-counter products to help your condition, they are rarely able to offer permanent results. Mticians at Azul have the ability to provide medical-grade skincare carried at a doctor’s office.

3. Long-Term Treatment Results

Licensed medical professionals are looking to fix the cause of your problem rather than just touch the surface. They are dedicated to providing a skincare routine that offers the longest-lasting results in the most effective way possible. Regular sessions with a medical esthetician allow for ongoing monitoring of your skin’s condition. They can assess the effectiveness of your current skincare routine, make adjustments as needed, and provide guidance on seasonal changes or lifestyle factors affecting the health of your skin.
