I wanted to become a dermatologist, after lookin through a book w/ the disorders i'm scared. Would becoming a medical esthetician be as rewarding?

In brief: Yes

Dermatologists are fully trained md's with post medical school residency of 3-5 years.
They are a respected subdiscipline of medicine. If you have the grades and the drive, by all means choose this pathway. A medical esthetician can have a wonderful career and is a good fall back position.
