What Estheticians Cannot Do
Although the term “medical esthetics” is often used, esthetics is not a medical practice and estheticians are not allowed to diagnose, prescribe medication and/or treat skin disorders or diseases. Instead, medical skin care services are left strictly up to licensed medical professionals. Estheticians may sometimes be found working in offices of medical practitioners, such as dermatologists and plastic surgeons.
