A Canadian man says he’s using the term cosmetologist to refer to someone who performs a skin-care procedure that involves the use of chemicals and the injection of tiny needles into the skin to remove bacteria and parasites.
In a video uploaded on YouTube by a group called Cosmetology and Skin Care, the video describes what a cosmetician is and how he or she performs a routine to remove the skin of the human body.
“I don’t know why I used to use the term, but now I do,” said the video’s narrator, who also describes himself as a cosmologist.
“And I don’t have a name for it.
I just use the word cosmetological.”
The video, titled “What is a Cosmetologist?” has been viewed more than 2 million times and garnered more than 11,000 comments.
The video is being used as a springboard for conversations about the word and its history, the origins of the term and how to use it in everyday speech.
The term is commonly used by those in the medical profession to describe people who work in medical settings, who specialize in medical treatment, and are required to use chemical substances, including certain chemicals to remove or treat infections, skin conditions or other problems.
The term is also used to refer both to doctors and medical students.
In fact, the National Association of Cosmetologists (NAACP) has said it is “unacceptable to refer directly to medical practitioners as ‘cosmologists.'”
“We believe that the word should be used to describe a person with a specific knowledge of their profession,” the organization said in a statement last year.
“We do not accept that the term refers to a person who is trained or experienced in a particular field or profession.”‘
Cosmetology is not just about skin’A Cosmetological Society of Canada spokesperson told CBC News the association is not calling for a change in the name of the profession, but rather calling for people to be more aware of the word, its history and its use.
“Cosmetologists are not just people who do skin care,” the spokesperson said.
“They are also doctors and other health professionals.”
The Canadian Cosmetologic Association also says it does not want to “delegitimize” the word.
“The association is opposed to the use and misuse of the medical word ‘Cosmetologist,’ as it perpetuates an inaccurate and stigmatizing view of the industry,” the statement read.
“Instead, we encourage people to use our term to describe health care professionals who care for the general public, and who are not trained in any particular field.”
But the association says it is still working to change the term.
“There’s a need for people of all backgrounds to recognize that there are people of colour in the profession who use different practices and techniques than those who are white, and they deserve the same respect,” the association said in the statement.
