Qualification Glossary - What are the treatments?

Access to Aesthetics – is a bridging qualification for those who want access directly to higher advanced aesthetic qualifications.  This includes: consultation and client care, H&S, Facial therapy at L2, A&P at L3 and electrical science

Advanced Blemish Removal techniques are used to remove skin blemishes such as skin tags, thread veins, warts, milia and age spots.

Dermaplaning is a technique using a surgical blade to shave away the uppermost layers of the skin to improve the appearance of pitting and acne scars, to create a more youthful appearance or for hair removal

Hifu – High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive medical procedure that is increasingly being used in aesthetic medicine for skin tightening and facial rejuvenation. The procedure works by using high-frequency sound waves to heat the deeper layers of skin and cause collagen production, resulting in a more youthful and tightened appearance

IPL and Laser Core of Knowledge is a mandatory certification for anyone planning to step into the vast world of Laser. Apart from covering all the risks and hazards of Class 4 lasers, this also incorporates the health and safety aspects like the laser room layout and risk to the eyes

Laser Tattoo Removal – During laser tattoo removal, laser energy penetrates the skin. The energy from the laser breaks down the tattoo ink into small fragments, which are eventually absorbed into the bloodstream and safely passed through the body naturally.

Microblading is a tattooing technique and form of permanent make-up in which a small handheld tool made of several tiny needles is used to add semi-permanent pigment to the skin

Micropigmentation for Camouflage and Restoration is an advanced tattooing technique utilising the benefits of permanent makeup to achieve the coverage of loss of pigmentation, fading and coverage of scars or the recreation of an areola after breast surgery is achieved.  ​

Radio Frequency is used to heat the fat cells in problem areas, melting and liquefying the fat. It stimulates fibroblasts to replenish and strengthen collagen and elastin, to achieve long-term tightening and smoothing of the skin. A warming sensation can be felt as fine lines are reduced and loose skin tightened. 5 sessions are recommended, depending on individual needs and expectations. A minimum of 1 treatment per week is required for best results.

Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment replicating hair follicles over the scalp to achieve natural results for those wanting a long term solution to hair loss

Skin Needling, in its various forms, will stimulate the production of collagen and this wound healing response will: create smoother skin, reduce the appearance of acne scarring or stretch marks, minimise fine lines and enlarged pores, and improve the appearance of scars.

Skin Peeling – A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing treatment in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the upper layers. Working within the safe parameters of the qualification, the beauty therapist will assess the correct depth or type of peel to suit skin type and personal needs. The skin that grows back after a chemical peel is smoother and younger looking when carried our correctly. Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles, skin discolouration and scars. Deeper chemical peels produce more dramatic results, but also involve longer recovery times and greater risks; additional qualifications and training are required to provide this service.

Ultrasound – During an ultrasound facial, high-level sound wave technology is used to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin. This helps to promote cellular renewal and repair. The treatment tones the facial muscles. It increases blood circulation, which in turn encourages lymphatic drainage, which will combat puffiness and swelling. Skincare product penetration is improved.
