Great Skin Message Board
I have a 15 year medical background in Nursing and have credentials in skin care
maintenance and consulting. I was a labor and delivery nurse for 10 years and I'm a Certified Childbirth Instructor. I am currently training in the field of Medical Esthetic Nurse Specialist, which is a specialty
in skin care that is quickly becoming a medical entity of it's own. Medispas are popping up
everywhere and women are flocking to them in record numbers. MENS work under the direction of a physician and administer treatments such as Botox, Microdermabrasion, Chemical
Peels, and Dermal fillers. Many Dermatologists offices find it hard to keep up with the demand and hire Esthetic Nurse
Specialists to oversee and administer these treatments. Because Nurses already have a medical background and understanding
of anatomy and physiology of the body and knowledge of medications, Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons work as a team
to deliver the best results safely and effectively.
There are many Estheticians who are certified and completely competent in their field but
as Nursing and Medicine keep up with the fast paced ever changing technology in skin care more pressure is being
put on state legislators to make sure the person that administers these treatments are certified or licensed. Nurses
already have a license to practice within the scope of this medical field so certification assures the patient that they are
in good hands with a competent medical professional.
So when looking for a Board Certified Dermatologist, Plastic Surgeon, or credible Medispa for
these procedures, do your research on the person administering the treatments and ask questions about their credentials
and training. It could make all the difference between a great experience that will keep you coming back or one that
you wish you had done more research on.
