Estheticians Play Key Role in Medical Esthetics

AMWC Miami 2023 was held at the Miami Beach Convention Center, February 23 – February 25, 2023.  The AMWC also hosts shows in Europe, Asia and Latin America. The AMWC Monaco 2023 will be held from March 30 – April 1, 2023. 

The American Debut of AMWC Miami 2023 

The AMWC [Aesthetic + Anti-Aging Medicine World Congress]

For decades, AMWC has built a global reputation for its highly interactive, stimulating, and multi-discipline program, with AMWC Monaco as the flagship event.  AMWC Miami 2023 brings its gold-standard program to the largest and fastest-growing market in the world! The conference had simultaneous translation available in Spanish and Portuguese, and several other languages.

This internationally renowned congress made its long-awaited debut in North America, welcoming more than 140 esteemed speakers from around the world, and more than 100 of the industry’s most trusted companies to engage in a top-tier scientific program and energetic exhibit hall. We were thrilled to be on-site and meet many of these companies.

Estheticians Play A Key Role In Aesthetic / Anti-Aging Spas and Doctors’ Offices

Lipgloss + Aftershave is convinced that the esthetician plays a critical role in the aesthetic / anti-aging industry.  While the advanced, invasive procedures such as injectables, threading, and medical procedures need to be performed by a licensed medical professional, a host of treatments can be performed by certified, licensed estheticians that are supervised by a licensed medical professional, these are all contingent upon local and state laws.

C2S Serum is an ideal antioxidant to have on your back bar and for clients to have in their daily skincare home care plan. It glides onto the skin easily and effectively fuels skin cells to stimulate regeneration, bringing renewed vitality to the skin.

It features Salicylic Acid, an Oil Soluble Vitamin C, and a Water Soluble Vitamin C.

The potent antioxidants in this product bring long-term benefits, along with a clearer, brighter complexion. This makes it a go-to age management product. It also offers clients with congested and acne-prone skin a perfect antioxidant-rich skin-balancing serum.

However, in medical practices that Barry + Jenni worked with – it was estheticians in the offices of physicians and in medical spas that were overseen by physicians who were performing incredibly effective anti-aging procedures. 

Estheticians Support Surgical Procedures 

We love the estheticians in our community who work in this “bridge space” in our industry, where they’re working with patients for pre and post-surgery. They can provide treatments to prep skin to be in optimal health pre-procedure, and then work to ensure the skin health is maximized post-procedure. 

Estheticians Create Cottage Industry In Medical Offices and Medical Spas

Estheticians who are properly trained and certified can work under a medical professional to facilitate procedures that can improve the patient’s skin and body. They can also work to educate patients on available medical services and refer to their medical professional for a consultation. They can use imaging software and expertise to show clients how their skin health can improve with a professional treatment plan.
