Module 1-5 Complete Package.

This innovative and progressive course is essential for all qualified Beauty Therapists, Licensed Aestheticians and Medical Aesthetics Practitioners serious about a professional career in skin treatment therapy.
This course will not only expand your knowledge of the skin by reviewing skin Anatomy, Histology, Morphology and Physiology, but give you a new respect for the largest organ of the body.

You will learn how to analyse and determine the causes of skin conditions effecting texture, colour and secretions by exploring skin structure and function and relating it to extrinsic and intrinsic causes.

The core of the method focuses on determining the CAUSES of skin conditions experienced, in order for the appropriate targeted interventions. This is in contrast to the more simplistic approach of treating the SYMPTOMS of the conditions that is often employed by many individuals.

The course consists of 52 units of learning over 5 modules. Individual modules are listed to the left. The entire course is approx 64 contact hours and is awarded 3.5 CEU's, 22 CPD's and 37 CE's.
Our participants from around the world have gained insight and  career changing knowledge from our courses, and the word is spreading...
