Do you need an Esthetician or a Dermatologist?
What is the difference between an Esthetician and a Dermatologist?
+ Consult and evaluate your skin, skin type, home care regimen and possible triggers for your skin concerns.
+ Estheticians educate their clients on skin care needs which do change for a number of reasons.
+ Treat skin diseases and prescribe medications to treat a skin disease.
Acne is one of the main reasons people go to a dermatologist. Typically acne is treated with topical, oral antibiotics or birth control as a medical solution. As an Esthetician, I have found that many acne issues can be addressed and possibly eliminated with proper consultation and client compliance, using 21st century philosophies and treatments.
Rosacea is also another reason people go to a dermatologist and it’s treated with topical and oral medications. As an Esthetician, I have found that many clients don’t respond well to medications. Medications taken for many years can disrupt your intestinal flora – which is a very, very delicate balance. Yes, I believe in taking medications to stabilize a situation, however; taking medications for a life time can cause many side effects. All drugs that are FDA approved and need a physician to prescribe them are toxic and can be lethal. Understand LD 50 here.
