Why I Chose to Become an Esthetician

I had recently undergone surgery that treated a long standing medical condition. This surgery left me with some rather severe scarring that greatly affected my appearance. My surgeon had a medical esthetician working on her team and I began treatments a week after surgery. Without her I don't know if I would have healed to the extent I have. She did facial massages as well as makeup application to cover the scarring. After one month the swelling had receded and all that was left was the scarring. She had taught me how to apply the makeup so it created a natural look. I was impacted so much that I decided I wanted to be a medical esthetician too. I looked up and was even more determined once I found out how much money they can make. I started a search for programs in my area and enrolled for the next semester. There is no better feeling than knowing you made a difference in another persons life.
