Level 4 Acoustic Wave Therapy (Shockwave Therapy) Course
February 15, 2018 - February 16, 2018
Acoustic Wave Therapy is a new and effective technology application for success treatment of cellulite, skin tightening, body contouring and other skin imperfections such as stretch marks etc. Acoustic Wave Therapy mechanically vibrates connective tissue in affected areas of the body, improving skin appearance causing the connective tissue to stretch which increases its firmness and elasticity up to 90%. The benefits of Acoustic Wave Therapy are increasing blood flow, stimulating lipolysis, reducing cellulite and improving the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Acoustic Wave Therapy is also an ideal partner to Cryotherapy Induced Lipolysis to accelerate the natural process of elimination of waste products more quickly.
The Acoustic Wave 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 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 Level 4 is suitable for Medical professionals and Aesthetic practitioners 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 Acoustic Wave Therapy treatments, 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.
