Esthetics, also known as aesthetics, from the Greek word aesthetikos (meaning “perceptible to the senses”), is a branch of anatomical science that deals with the overall health and well-being of the skin, the largest organ of the human body. An esthetician is a specialist in the cleansing, beautification, and preservation of the health of skin on the entire body, including face and neck. Estheticians provide preventive care for the skin and offer treatments to keep the skin healthy and attractive. Estheticians may also manufacture, sell, or apply cosmetics. They are trained to detect skin problems that may require medical attention.
