Combining Medical and Esthetic Treatments to Help Build Client Retention

This presentation will explore the most important roles the esthetician will play in a medical setting, including patient education on care of their skin before, during and after medical treatments. Combining medical and esthetic treatments to build client retention may include: pre- and postoperative skin care; skin disease intervention; lymphatic drainage to assist with ecchymosis and edema; camouflaging cosmetics to cover scars postoperatively; permanent cosmetics or micropigmentation for reconstructive purposes; or laser and light therapy for hair removal and facial rejuvenation.
