Description

This aesthetic therapist course has been developed in collaboration with The Harley Street Skin Clinic with the aim of developing knowledgeable Aesthetic Therapists ready to meet the growing demand from the industry nationwide. This partnership ensures the course content is tailored towards the aesthetic industry's requirements, whilst offering you the opportunity to visit clinics or theatres and see first hand the doctors at work. 

Throughout the course industry experts will give workshops on topics such as radio frequency, stem cell therapy, dermabrasion, IPL, pressotherapy, cosmetic science and cellulite.  

The course will include the equivalent of one full day working in all areas of a skin clinic, including shadowing nurses, receptionists, consultants and other aestheticians. There will also be a second day observing invasive treatments.
