While knowing the answers to these questions is just a starting place, developing a relationship with your esthetician is key. The esthetician is there to improve the quality of your skin and make you feel comfortable and happy about how your skin looks. Make sure you check your estheticians credentials before scheduling an appointment. Different states require a certain amount of hours the esthetician needs to complete to be licensed; for example, florida requires 260 hours to be completed. You can also go to https://www.myfloridalicense.com/wl11.asp?mode=0&SID= and search the estheticians name to make sure thier license is still active.
Kaitlynn Morgan, the Medical Esthetician at Aguiar Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa has far exceeded the amount of hours needed for the state of florida with 1200 hours of education.

This is important to know so the client will be in good hands.
