It’s that time of the year again! DERMASCOPE’s long anticipated special issue has finally arrived. This magazine is where we announce the winners for the 2022 Aestheticians’ Choice Awards of favored products, equipment, and people. Year after year, we are amazed at the industry’s response to these awards (over 112,000 votes!) and couldn’t be more appreciative of our position to give professionals a platform for their voices to be heard. This issue offers valuable content for our trusted readers, including an extensive list of on-demand, educational webinars available on DERMASCOPE.com.
When exploring the P&E Guide, read through the featured articles that dive into the nitty gritty of continuing education within the aesthetic profession. Active skin care professionals’ education is a journey that has no final destination – and the articles included in this issue delve into the many facets of what the journey may bring along.
Scope of practice is one that is open for interpretation and varies by state. With so many stipulations being placed on a practitioner’s services, the next logical step may be to expand that scope of practice. Learn about the options to offer the best treatments possible for clients with Annette Hanson’s article entitled “Diversified Talents.”
Although professionals may be exposed to an abundance of continuing educational opportunities, there may be aspects of the trade for which they are either not prepared or falls within an individual’s shortcomings. For circumstances such as these, a spa owner may consider bringing on a consultant. Discover the many options for professional help with “Optimal Output,” an article by 2022’s Favorite Contributing Writer, Nichelle Mosley.
Actively practicing aesthetics is an endeavor of which many aestheticians never grow tired. However, for the professionals whose talents are destined for the masses, becoming an aesthetics instructor or brand educator may be the next chapter of their careers. To read up on what this transition may entail, look to the article, “Forging Ahead,” by Cathy Wainwright.
Consider DERMASCOPE’s annual P&E Guide as a guide to plan the year ahead. Work from this potential playbook to help make critical decisions involving continuing education, bringing on new products and equipment, or even just looking to level up.
