What happens when the Medical Community and Professional Beauty Community pair up and come together? You get a win-win for everyone involved and the client or patient that you are serving reaps the benefits.
Both the beauty industry and medical community can learn and gain quite a bit from each respective industry. The medical community brings the insight of respectable healthcare and diagnosed treatments to the patient/client and the professional beauty service provider brings the cosmetic aspect. When both of these services are combined together it allows both communities to better serve the intended patient/client and forms long lasting trusted relationships with the people being serviced.
For instance, a Dermatology office provides medical skincare services and treatments to clients that may only require medical supervision by a trained and licensed physician; but what about those times where you have a client that may have just a simple case of acne that can be managed in-house by a interdependent beauty professional being that of a Licensed Esthetician. Estheticians can provide a host of services to compliment the treatment plan of a Dermatologist. In the instance of the patient having acne, it would be beneficial for this patient to receive ongoing and routine facials to target acneic skin with the discretion of the referring Dermatologist.
Another example of physicians working in harmony to offer targeted treatments and services for the patient would be the Podiatrist and Nail Tech/Pedicurist relationship. Foot and Nail Care is a huge problem for people, especially for seniors and limited mobility populations. Something as simple as toenail clippings can be done by a Licensed Pedicurist or Nail Tech right in the Dr's office. For patients that cannot come physically to the physician office, having a working relationship with a sound and experienced Nail Tech/Pedicurist who is willing to provide at-home services for these types of clients is an invaluable service and offers the patient well-rounded care to their advantage.
Oncology is another department in healthcare that typically deals with patients suffering from sort of cancer. Patients undergoing chemotherapy often display hair loss. The expertise of an advanced Hair Stylist would be able to provide customized aesthetic wig services to enhance the patients physical appearance and restore a sense of normalcy aesthetically for the patient.
At the end of the day the focus is the client and/or patient and working together as a "winning" team will bring forth the best results for all intended.
