Level 4 LED Light Therapy Course
February 4, 2019 - February 5, 2019
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 photo 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. Skin absorbs the light and uses it as a source of energy to deliver anti-ageing and therapeutic benefits to human skin safely and effectively. LED light therapy is gentle but effective, suitable for any age or skin type. It will heal, rejuvenate, will not burn or irritate the skin. There are no risks, side effects or recover time with this treatment.
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 courses are suitable for Beauty Therapists with the suitable pre-requisites (Level 3 Beauty or equivalent) and Aesthetic practitioners
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.
