That's right...you can go to any salon and spa in BC and be treated by an esthetician who has NO formal training. Education is not required to perform waxing, lash lifts, lash extensions, manicures, chemical peels or operate a laser. How scary is that?! It's on the client to investigate and find out if the esthetician is qualified and/or has received formal training.
What can clients do to make sure they are being treated by a trained esthetician?
Certification is not mandatory to work as an esthetician so do your due diligence and your own research when choosing where to get your esthetics services - this is your body and you don't want to ruin it!
