Esthetician vs. dermatology rn, which should i see?

Depends on need...: ...are you looking for a cosmetic procedure, or a dermatology exam for a diagnosis? Esthetician is restricted to cosmetic procedures, but is specifically trained that field. A dermatology registered nurse may or may not have experience or training in cosmetic procedures, but would be able to handle dermatology examinations and treatments almost at level of a dermatologist.

Estheticians are: great for cleaning your skin but not for prescription medications or medical condition diagnosis
