Microdermabrasion add on Course

This is for students who are already qualified in facials. Proof of certificate will be requested before acceptance on course.

You will learn to carry out this Microdermabrasion qualification. This is a non surgical method of skin rejuvenation by means of mechanical skin exfoliation. This is a pain free procedure that can be combined with other skin care treatments, facials and peels. Microdermabrasion is a simple effective process removing the stratum corneum with a diamond or plastic tip, and removes the dead cells with a vacuum suction machine.

It is non -invasive treatment designed to improve the overall texture, tone and clarity of the skin. The microdermabrasion will smooth out the skin leaving it fresh and regenerating new skin cells. The process also encourages the production of collagen and helps treat early signs of ageing. You can combine the treatment with other skin care enhancing the penetration of post products.
