Performing a facial treatment is an opportunity for you to give your client a relaxing and enjoyable treatment designed to improve and rejuvenate their skin.

It also includes fantastic anatomy and physiology resources with clear diagrams and images. Health and safety guidance is covered as well as skin conditions, skin analysis and advice about different skin types as well as guidance as to which type of product is suitable for use.
Microdermabrasion is a very popular, machine assisted skin exfoliation treatment. It is a painless, noninvasive, skin- rejuvenation procedure using a combination of a fine abrasive tip or crystals and vacuum suction applied to the skin. There are no needles or anaesthetics required for microdermabrasion.
The vacuum pressure and speed are adjusted depending on the sensitivity and tolerance of the skin. Typical microdermabrasion sessions can last anywhere from 10 to 60 minutes. Microdermabrasion works by removing a few of the top layers of the skin called the stratum corneum.
Since human skin typically regenerates at approximately 30-day intervals, skin improvement with microdermabrasion is temporary and needs to be repeated at average intervals of two to four weeks for continued improvement.
Our microdermabrasion course will teach you the most popular diamond-tip microdermabrasion technique, competently offering this service to your clients and helping them achieve resurfaced, rejuvenated skin – the popular alternative to the surgical face lift.
You will need to bring a model with you.
