There are several things that can affect an esthetician's salary. If an esthetician works privately, he or she will be paid more than those estheticians working for a spa.

Medical estheticians are also paid more than spa estheticians. Medical estheticians are specialists who work in a medical facility. The salary of an esthetician can also be affected by location. Since there are more people in a city who require the personal services that estheticians provide, estheticians working in a metropolitan area will generally earn more than those working in a rural location.

Furthermore, the cost of living is higher in highly populated areas which also explains the increase in pay. Experience in the industry will further impact salary. More skilled esthetician who have been practicing in the field for several years will command a higher salary than those estheticians who are fresh out of a cosmetology program.

Estheticians often work a varied schedule consisting of long hours depending on their place of employment. If employed at a doctor's office, estheticians are likely to work regular business hours, Monday through Friday. However, if employed at a spa, estheticians could work evening and weekend hours. Similarly, estheticians who are self -employed can potentially work long hours involving nights and weekends. Estheticians can be employed full or part time.
