Why Estheticians Are in High Demand?
Estheticians are in high demand. The job outlook for skincare specialists are excellent for the 2020s: The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has said that positions are growing at 17% between 2019 and 2029, a rate much more robust than the average job. So why are estheticians in such high demand?
In short, the population is aging — in less than 20 years, older adults will have children outnumbered for the first time in U.S. history, according to the Census Bureau — but Americans don’t want the effects of aging to show on their faces. To wit, the market for cosmetics and beauty products is projected to grow 5.6% in 2021 alone. Consumer demand for skincare and beauty services is on an uphill climb, and increased job opportunities are expected to follow.

What Is an Esthetician?
First, let’s have the DTR — or “define the responsibilities” — talk about an esthetician’s work. Estheticians are also known as skincare specialists because they have specialized skills in applying beauty treatments to improve the appearance of a client’s skin. Those services might include skin cleansing and toning; facial and spa treatments; hair removal through exfoliation, waxing, chemicals, or threading; face and scalp massage; laser therapy; microdermabrasion; body wraps; and even makeup application.
Estheticians aren’t medical professionals and don’t diagnose or treat skin disorders — that’s a dermatologist’s job — but they do have some knowledge of dermatology in order to best treat their clients’ concerns. In a similar vein, medical estheticians might support a dermatologist’s or plastic surgeon’s work; they often work with clients who have more serious skin concerns, including burns, trauma, or plastic surgery prep and recovery.
