LED Light Therapy Facial Training Course

This 1/2 Day (3 hour) Course Covers:

  • LED light therapy (facial treatment)

Our LED Light Therapy Facial Course gives you the skills and confidence to take your facial skincare treatments to an advanced level.

LED Light Therapy works to soothe the skin, it is a relaxing treatment to receive and also offers hugely rejuvenating benefits to the skin when offered as a standalone treatment. The benefits of LED light therapy for facial treatments include treating acne, regulating natural oil production, stimulating collagen and elastin and minimising redness and wrinkles. LED light therapy has also been used for decades to boost the speed of healing and cell renewal, so is an ideal treatment to follow and finish other advanced aesthetics treatments such as Dermaplaning, Microneedling or Skin Peel.

As part of this course, you will complete online study prior to attending the practical training to cover the essential theory around anatomy, physiology, health and safety and theory of the treatment. Our team will also contact you by phone for a mini-consultation prior to confirming your training place to ensure you are free of contra-indications to fully participate in the training & hold the entry requirement qualifications.

Pre-requirements for this Course: To be able to obtain insurance upon completion of the course and to get the most from the training, you will need to have achieved VTCT Level 3 in Electrical Facials or similar equivalent with a recognised awarding body. This can be booked to be studied alongside this course. Learn more about Level 2 & Level 3 in Electrical Facials.

LED Light Therapy has been used for decades in medical settings to encourage quicker and better healing of the skin from wounds, burns and post-surgery. In recent years, LED Light Therapy has grown in popularity as the treatment becomes more accessible and affordable, for those looking to gain the benefits as part of regular facial skincare. LED Light Therapy is effective at soothing the skin in areas of irritation/sensitivity and encouraging healing by stimulating collagen cell growth. It offers an effective skincare treatment for tackling concerns around acne affected skin or for anti-aging benefits. It is also an excellent treatment to combine with invasive or minimally invasive treatments such as Skin Peels, Microneedling and Dermaplaning to soothe and repair the skin. LED Light Therapy can be offered as a standalone facial skincare treatment to upsell your standard facials or combined with other advanced procedures or as a course of treatments making it a lucrative skill to learn. Following this course, you will be confident to offer LED Light Therapy Facial treatments to your clients and understand how to apply LED when used alongside other advanced facial treatments for maximum effect.

This particular course is suitable only for those who already hold a VTCT Level 3 in Electrical Facials (or equivalent level, recognised qualification) due to the requirements set by insurers of this treatment.
