Do students have to be qualified in Beauty Facials prior to attending?

Yes

We want students to have a prerequisite of completing the Beauty Facial course first (or equivalent qualification). This is because students need to have the basic skills and understanding of skin anatomy, products and techniques to enable us to concentrate on perfecting your consultation skills, improve your retail skills, perform an in-depth skin analysis and perform the treatment itself to a high standard.

We will need proof of your qualification for the facial course you have attended, it can be with us or any other school but we do NOT accept an online facial course.

If you do not yet have a facial qualification you can do this course with us, which will be the prerequisite you will need to be able to attend this gold glow facial course:

NO

All products will be provided on the day of your training (within the price of your course) that you use on the day whilst learning.

History of gold:

GOLD – one of the world’s most valued minerals, highly sought after with a resistance to tarnish and the bright shimmering tones of yellows and reds.  Culturally, gold is usually associated with wealth, happiness, success, love, divinity, good luck/fortune, and power.


Why choose the GW Radiance Gold Glow Facial Course:

Gold has a brightening effect on the skin, boosts radiance and luminosity, it is a powerful antioxidant & has healing properties.  It is anti-inflammatory and calming on sensitive skins.  It also improves circulation, rejuvenates and stimulates the regeneration of skin cells.


A gold facial is perfect for any skin type:

  • It is anti-aging due to the antioxidant effects, plus anti-wrinkle/firming, energising and rejuvenation effects.
  • It is good for problematic skin (prone to spots) due to the healing properties of the gold.
  • Safe to use on sensitive skins due to the anti-inflammatory, calming and healing effects.
  • Revitalises dry/dull skin as it brightens and increases cellular turnover and microcirculation.

What makes this treatment different from the Beauty Facial Course?

Gold (and especially the 24k gold leaf used within this facial) does not come cheaply.  Gold is considered one of the most sought-after minerals in the world.  With the added benefits and effects this has on the skin it is no wonder clients love having this treatment.   The benefits and effects of this treatment will last for a couple of days, hence why it is a perfect pre-occasion or pre-party treatment.  Because the GW Radiance Gold Glow Facial is full of opulence, you can give it a price tag to match.

During this course we build on your existing knowledge and really home in on your therapy skills to up your game during the consultation process, treatment and homecare/aftercare procedure, propelling your skills to the next level with tried and tested techniques you can use not just with this treatment but with ALL the treatments that you offer within your business.


More Information About Our GW Radiance Gold Glow Facial Course:

This is a practitioner diploma and has been awarded 10 CPD points, allowing you to get insurance with this certificate and use with the general public, (all professional bodies are different please check with the one you are registered with for confirmation of points they award for one day courses).

Relevant anatomy and physiology are also given in your manual, the manual is included in the price of this course and covers everything you learn on the day.


Do I need to bring a model?

No

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.


Another treatment to follow on from this course is:

The Natural Lift Facial Massage Course - this course is a great addition to your treatment offering and includes techniques such as Japanese Facial Massage, Acupressure and Indian Facial Massage techniques, lymph drainage and facial reflexology.  

This treatment is a holistic facial treatment that helps to lift and rejuvenate the skin and muscle tissue of the head, face, neck and shoulders. 

The Natural Lift Facial Massage is a wonderful stand alone treatment or it can be incorporated into the Beauty Facial or the GW Radiance Gold Glow Facial for a truly relaxing and soothing experience.

When you book with us you have peace of mind we have a proven track record - established in 1998 and accredited by the top professional bodies.


Certificate - Insurance - Brands

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!
