One day professional training course in Chemical Skin Peeling.
The chemical skin peel training includes teaching using re-surfacing peels at 30% and 50% glycolic/lactic & salicylic peel.
The combination of glycolic acid, lactic acid and salicylic acid within a superficial chemical peel provides a skin exfoliant to chemically remove keratinised structures of the epidermis, restoring a radiant complexion. Safe and easy to use with no downtime.
Open to experienced therapists only please see entry requirements below.
Glycolic acid is a type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid derived from sugar cane (it can also be made synthetically). Due to its smaller molecular size, glycolic acid is more effective than other alpha hydroxy acids and when used correctly can improve the look and feel of the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.
Glycolic acid works in a number of ways, primarily through its exfoliation properties. On application the glycolic acid penetrates the upper layer of the epidermis, weakening the binding properties of the lipids that hold dead skin cells together. This action allows the layer of dead skin cells to dissolve revealing the underlying skin.
Open to experienced therapists only with one or more of the following qualifications:
NVQ Level 3 Beauty or equivalent
Dentist – or dental practitioner with a GDC number
Level 4 Micropigmentation with Level 3 A&P
Please note - We are sorry you CANNOT apply for this course if you only have a massage qualification or if you only have an Anatomy and Physiology as the accrediting bodies for insurance purposes will NOT accept these unless you also have one of the above requirements as well.
Starter kits are available to purchase on the day and thereafter. Full details of how and where to purchase the products required to carry out the treatments are explained on the training course.
You do not need to take a model with you as you will work with another student on the day of training. The class runs with 2 or more people booked on and you can book 24 hours before the start date if you wish. If you do not wish to be worked on due to medical reasons, sometimes the tutor can provide one if advised beforehand.

Why is our course so popular?
This is because the certification we give you allows a student to work with which ever particular brand they choose to purchase later and use with their clients.
Importantly as we teach effective and safe methods with products our tutors love to use but do not insist on the students who attend to have to continue with any one given brand afterwards to gain insurance and use what they have learned with us professionally.
This then allows students to make their own choice of brand and also means that they are not tied by any particular brand when it comes to their insurance, so should they ever have a problem and if a claim is made and they have changed brand, they would still be covered (please check this with your insurance provider) giving you a lot more flexibility.
This also means you are not tied into buying brands from us which is very restrictive which only makes the school you are buying them from money but does not benefit you. This means the certificate you gain with us gives you the freedom to use what ever brand you wish, the tutors can guide you to good products but ultimately it is your choice!
