If you’re thinking about starting your own aesthetics business, one of the very first questions you’ll ask is:
“How much can I earn as an aesthetic nurse or aesthetic practitioner?”
Before you go through all the training and the set-up, all the effort it takes to build your own successful practice, you’ll want to know if it’s worth your while.
So how much do aesthetic nurses make?
As with any job, it all depends on your qualifications, your experience, your client base and your clinic set up.
Most importantly, the wage you can earn from your aesthetics practice will depend on the treatments you offer.
A Level 4 qualified aesthetic therapist providing laser and microdermabrasion treatments will make less than a Level 7 qualified doctor who has retrained as an aesthetic practitioner and is performing Botox and dermal filler treatments.
As an aesthetic therapist, you could earn between £28,000 and £35,000 per year.
As an aesthetic nurse, expect to earn between £30,000 to £50,000 depending on your qualifications.
As an aesthetic practitioner, with comprehensive qualifications and experiences, you could earn up to £150,000 per year.
What is the average salary for an aesthetics nurse?
The average salary in the aesthetics industry varies greatly around the country. It all comes down to your experience and the treatments you’re offering.
The amount you make as an aesthetics nurse will change depending on whether you’re working for someone else, in their practice, or you’re running your own clinic.
