Course overview: Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture using a non-surgical method of mechanical exfoliation. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, hyper-pigmentation and age spots, acne scarring, stretch marks, dull complexion and uneven skin tones and other skin-related concerns and conditions.
Please note, a machine is NOT included in the course price.
The procedure uses a device with a special wand applicator with either crystals or an abrasive surface to gently sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it.
Microdermabrasion is considered a safe procedure for most skin types.

Starter Kit: We do not include any kits within our training courses, however we provide all products and tools required to complete the practical training on the day, at the training centre for you to use. We took this approach following student feedback so that students are not tied into specific kits or brands of products as part of their course fee, before they are trained and able to make an informed choice. Our training courses teach the generic treatment techniques and processes; they are not brand specific. In some cases, your insurance may be invalid if you train with a branded product detailed on your training certificate and you then change to another brand. This also allows us to offer our training courses at a lower cost allowing you to spend what is right for you on the necessary products rather than buying unnecessary and costly equipment.
We recommend attending training where you will gain advice about different brands and suppliers to enable you to purchase products from your chosen supplier directly following your training
