Of the approximately 41 million Americans with tattoos, 11 percent have had at least one removed. Tattoo removal can take several visits for the laser to break ink particles down enough that white blood cells can finish the job. For people committed to distancing themselves from a bad tattoo, the removal process is worth the time and money involved.
Under doctor’s supervision, many states permit medical estheticians to assist with the deeper laser treatments required to lessen or eliminate acne scarring.
Medical estheticians can often manage mild acne through non-laser methods.
Medical estheticians who work in medical spas can treat patients suffering from hyper pigmentation with noninvasive laser treatments. Their role may also include educating patients about the process, providing emotional support, and staying connected with patients who undergo long-term treatment.
