  • Core Knowledge for Aesthetic Practice
  • Chemical Peel
  • Micro-Needling
  • Non-Surgical Blemish Removal

Core of Knowledge underpins all other units of our Level 4 qualification portfolio and represents a mandatory study for every aesthetic practitioner as specified by the Health Education England Report published on January 8th 2016, due to this it is embedded into each of our Certificate and Diploma courses. Core Knowledge is also the perfect course for managers, non-practitioner personnel or anyone involved in the establishment and running of an aesthetic practice.

Chemical peeling module will provide an extensive study of the underpinning knowledge essential for best clinical practice. In both theory and practical elements the course will cover a wide variety of different peeling formulations, procedures and adaptations to protocol to ensure well informed, and therefore safe and effective, treatment of all skin types.

Micro Needling is the use of dermal rollers, stamps and motorised fractional needling that will provide you with the most comprehensive training available in the delivery of this versatile skin treatment. It ensures practical competence and examines the indications for treatment, the inflammatory process and the physiology of the healing response initiated by the treatment for skin regeneration.

Non-surgical blemish removal is a study of elementary dermatology & the clinical removal of minor skin lesions and the practice of blemish removal using short wave diathermy, thermo-coagulation or advanced electrolysis is a treatment required by many clients but offered by very few therapists or aesthetic practitioners. It is non-invasive, effective and safe, low on consumable cost but with a high financial return. An absolute must for any clinical skin care practitioner. This course provides you with knowledge of removable skin lesions and practical training in the procedures required for their effective removal using electrocautery techniques.

Removal of the following blemishes would be covered only:

  • Telangiectasia
  • Spider Naevi
  • Campbell de morgan
  • Milia
  • Skin Tags

My experience at LCBT was eye opening, learning new and existing treatment as well as gaining knowledge on the human anatomy (words I had never heard and didn’t even know existed).
