In recent years we have seen a lot of people transition from jobs in a variety of medical professions to work in medical aesthetics. We are also seeing more medically qualified graduates choose to go straight into working in aesthetics. There are several reasons aesthetics is becoming a very popular career choice, for example, people are looking for a new challenge or they are not satisfied in their current roles.
These are four of the top reasons to choose a career in medical aesthetics:
A better work-life balance
For many medical-based roles, especially in the recent times of a health pandemic, it is very difficult to achieve a good work-life balance. Long working hours, taking on extra shifts and staying on for longer than your required working hours, are all regular occurrences for a lot of people. A career in medical aesthetics allows for a much better work-life balance, with set opening hours and as a business owner, you might find you have even more freedom to work fewer hours as your business grows.
See immediate results on your patients
One of the most rewarding parts of being an aesthetics clinician is that you get to see the results of your work straight away. While some treatments may take a bit longer to see the full outcome, lots of procedures will deliver immediate results. This means you will usually be able to experience the happy reaction of your clients when you provide a treatment that makes them feel happier about their appearance and you know that you have helped to boost their mental wellbeing.
You can build your own business
As a medical aesthetics clinician, you have the opportunity to set up and grow your own business. If you prefer, you can work for an established company, but many clinicians choose to start their own business, to benefit from the many advantages of being your own boss and the financial opportunities that come with that.
Join a growing industry
Over the last few years, the aesthetics industry has been growing at pace and there are few other industries with this level of recent success. Therefore, a business venture in this industry has a much better chance of being sustainable and profitable.
