Advanced facial skincare treatments are taking the UK by storm as they become more well known through celebrity endorsement and also become more accessible and affordable. Clients are seeking natural skincare options that are less invasive and require minimal to no downtime, but still provide exceptional results. This package combines two of the most popular skin rejuvenation treatments – dermaplaning and microdermabrasion to allow you to provide your clients with softer, smoother and more refined skin appearance.
Our course package allows you to learn lucrative advanced facial skincare treatments over just 2.5 days of hands-on practical training. This package is suitable for complete beginners to skincare treatments as the Facial Massage & Skincare forms the minimum pre-requirement for these advanced skincare courses. This training is also an ideal refresher for those therapists already trained in skincare but now seeking to refresh their basic skincare knowledge and take their treatments further with aesthetics.
The courses are intensive with a lot to learn but you are given online study to complete prior to your training days to allow you to refresh your knowledge of essential theory around health, safety, anatomy and physiology to ensure you are well prepared for the training days. Training is focused on acquiring the practical skills and demonstrating confidence within these under the careful guidance of your tutor. You have full support from our expert team following your studies and a course e-manual for each course that is yours to keep and refer back to as you put your treatments into practice following training.
Across the 2.5 days of training, you will learn Facial Massage & Skincare, Dermaplaning and Microdermabrasion. Sessions can be booked as you prefer, although Facial Massage & Skincare MUST be booked as day 1! You will learn how to combine these treatments to best effect so that you can tailor a treatment package to address specific concerns for individual clients, but with the option also of offering these as standalone facial skincare treatments. On completion of these courses, you can gain insurance and begin to earn typically £40-£100 per hour offering your aesthetic skincare treatments!
