The absence of such a specialty as a cosmetologist in the classifier of professions causes a lot of problems. One of them, the most important and absurd one, is the presence in the profession of a huge number of “outsiders”, impostors. As such, we call pseudo-specialists who do not have a medical knowledge base behind their backs. After all, cosmetology is a profession that borders on medicine very closely; to perform all the procedures, a specialist needs a fundamental theoretical base.
Why is medical knowledge important in cosmetology?
The work of a cosmetologist is aimed at skincare – a complex body that performs a lot of important functions. Therefore, this care should be as qualified as possible and based on medical theory. Firstly, the cosmetologist should be guided in physiology, anatomy, trichology and dermatology. Secondly, medical education will help in the perception and analysis of professional information. Literature, courses, workshops, advanced training, and elementary communication with colleagues – you can’t avoid the terms. Thirdly, self-confidence, a clear awareness of their actions is an important aspect of any profession, and even more so related to human health. Fourth, the goal of any specialist is professional growth, at least it should be so. Without proper education, a person can hardly count on career growth. After all, both clients and employers are interested in cooperating with qualified specialists. And fifthly, it’s clear that each of us works with the goal of generating income. A specialist who does not have an education behind him should not count on a decent salary. What do they learn in the basics of medical knowledge? A person who is far from his profession may mistakenly believe that for conducting cosmetic procedures a minimal knowledge base regarding the procedures themselves is sufficient. This is not true!
In the framework of the training program “BASIS OF MEDICAL KNOWLEDGE”, students learn:
- The basics of anatomy: cells, tissues, organs and systems of organs, bones, muscle system;
- Digestive system.
- Genitourinary system.
- Endocrine system.
- The cardiovascular system;
- Nervous system.
- Sensory organs;
- First aid.
Such a distribution of the modules is not accidental, because all this knowledge is applied by a qualified specialist in practice.
How can medical knowledge help a beautician in his practice?
In their work, cosmetologists use various cosmetology equipment, professional tools. In addition, they perform various kinds of manipulations. Beauticians not only eliminate symptoms, but also identify the causes of a condition. Within the framework of the procedures, a qualified specialist is entitled to recommend a diet, a certain lifestyle, physical activity, etc. In order for these actions to be effective and all the more so as not to harm the beauty and health of the client, the specialist must understand all the processes taking place in the human body.
