Luckily, esthetic technology can reverse or at least stop many of these effects. At Oregon spas and salons, you provide in-demand services like microdermabrasion, makeup application, facials, body wraps, and facial massage. Recent growth in the Oregon skin care industry makes this a great time to get started. A 16% increase in job openings is expected by the year 2026 (O*Net, 2019). The average salary for an Oregon esthetician is $37,920 per year (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2020).

Estheticians evaluate a person's skin to determine which treatments and products are best suited for them. They keep on top of the newest advancements, products, and techniques so they can provide clients with the most current information and treatments. They work mostly in spas and salons with a few taking on specialties to treat people in a medical office. Estheticians must be complete training and become licensed to perform their duties.
