Project Description

COURSE INTRODUCTION

Ultrasound has been used in medicine since the 1940s. Its safety, precise control and excellent predictable results have made ultrasound an important addition to cosmetic practices. Ultrasound for skin rejuvenation offers excellent results without pain, anaesthesia and down time. Ultrasound not only deeply exfoliates the epidermis, increases penetration effectiveness by up to 4000 times compared to hand application, it increases collagen and elastin production and also repairs damaged cells, breaks down fat and controls pigmentation. Ultrasonic action helps to slow down the signs of the ageing process which cosmetic surgery cannot do. Dramatic results can be observed even after the first treatment. Ultrasound brings important new opportunities to the aesthetic industry, offering many non-invasive new treatments which are safe and suitable for most people including those with sensitive skin.

Ultrasound for skin rejuvenation course includes:

Safe and effective methods of working when carrying out treatments:

  • Health and safety
  • Data Protection Act
  • Client modesty, privacy and confidentiality
  • Hygiene
  • Sterilisation methods
  • Equipment set up and Maintenance

Anatomy and Physiology, and other science relevant to the treatment:

  • What is Ultrasound for Skin Rejuvenation
  • Ultrasound for deep cleansing
  • Ultrasound for product penetration, also known as sonophoresis
  • Ultrasound for healing and repairing at the cellular level
  • Characteristics and layers of the skin

Planning, preparing and consulting client before treatment and understanding the organisational and legal obligations of performing treatments:

  • Client consultation
  • Contra indications
  • Client suitability
  • Risk and side effects
  • Realistic expectations
  • Areas suitable for treatment

Carrying out treatments:

  • Live Demo
  • Step-by-step
  • Treatment techniques

Handling equipment and electrical safety:

  • Importance of using appropriate contact medium throughout the treatment
  • Safely administering ultrasound
  • Appropriate timing and movements during treatment

Providing aftercare to the client:

  • Returning clients and treatment maintenance
  • Combination treatments

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 Ultrasound for Skin Rejuvenation Level 4 Course carries 6 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 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 one 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 comprises of a two-day practical training session (rather than one day for the short course) 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 Ultrasound for Skin Rejuvenation 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.

OUR DELEGATES SAY

I attended several courses in April 2014

These included Ultrasound Lipocavitation, Ultrasound Skin Rejuvenation, Thermotherapy, Cryotherapy and Microdermabrasion, courses which complemented each other.

Barbara is completely trained in the technique of administering ultrasound and her background was involved in the use of ultrasonic techniques in the medical field

She is an accomplished teacher in the use of all the techniques applicable to the advancement of beauty therapy.

Her amazing patience and the enthusiasm she shows is very admirable

I have learnt so much in such a short time

Thank you Barbara

Dr Raymond

I have been looking for an Ultrasonic skin course for a long time, and eventually I found a wonderful trainer! I attended her course and it was like I was studing at home with a private very good tutor-it was relaxing but so intensive, so easy to ask any questions to the trainer which means I could learn a lot. It was so much better than any other course that I have attended in the past. I highly recommend this school to everybody!

Barbara teaches with 100% clarity so I was left feeling completely confident that I can work with ultrasound safely + effectively. Also came away feeling very inspired by the possibilities that ultrasound offers the skin.Very thorough and clear teaching left me in no doubt about how to incorporate it into treatments or why. Barbara’s clear + thorough teaching style is good for student confidence.
