Project Description

COURSE INTRODUCTION

LED light therapy is a new, non-invasive treatment that utilises the power of light to renew, repair and heal the skin without invasive procedures or recovery time. The natural process of bio-stimulation helps to reverse or slow the sign of ageing, clear acne or other blemishes, help rosacea or psoriasis sufferers, reduce pigmentation, redness and inflammation, speed up the healing process and much more by utilising a range of different wavelengths of visible light. The skin absorbs the light and uses it as a source of energy to deliver anti-ageing and therapeutic benefits to human skin, both safely and effectively. LED light therapy is gentle but effective, and suitable for any age or skin type. It will heal and rejuvenate whilst not burning or irritating the skin. There are no risks, side effects or recovery time with this treatment.

Our courses are suitable for Beauty Therapists with the suitable pre-requisites (Level 3 Beauty or equivalent) and Aesthetic practitioners

NB: We expect students to have read the course materials fully prior to attending the onsite course at the Academy of Advanced Beauty

In order to graduate from all of our courses, students will need to pass a final written examination to assess their knowledge and understanding, and to pass a practical observation performing the treatment in full, including client consultation and aftercare. For Level 4 courses, after having completed the practical session at the Academy, students will be asked to complete four case studies and a 5,000-word assignment in order to complete the course

Level 4 Accredited Course certificates will be issued externally. For our Short Courses, we will provide an Academy of Advanced Beauty Diploma

The LED Light Therapy Level 4 Course carries 7 credits and will qualify you for insurance cover. Some of these credits can be transferred to other courses if the subject matter overlaps. For example, if you have studied the necessary Health and Safety legislation in the Beauty and Aesthetics sector, you will not need to cover this in the same amount of detail for any additional course which covers this same material.

Our short courses, for those wish to learn more about the treatments without gaining an accredited Level 4 course, are a full day in duration

Our Level 4 course is based on core knowledge taught on the short course but in addition includes a substantial theory component which explores the science behind the treatment further, and and includes a substantial theory component and a two-day practical training session where you will be asked to demonstrate your competence in the treatment through a series of assessments and exams

In the course, we will cover how to prepare for and carry out LED Light Therapy treatments safely, covering necessary legislation, core knowledge and science behind the treatment as well as how best to handle the equipment and maximise treatment results.

In order to graduate from all of our courses, delegates will need to pass a final written examination to assess their knowledge and understanding, and to pass a practical observation performing the treatment in full, including client consultation and aftercare.
