Level 4 Low Level Laser Therapy (Laser Lipo) Course
February 26, 2018 - February 27, 2018
Low Level Laser utilises that part of the light spectrum where visible red laser diodes give off light penetrating into the subcutaneous layer where the fat cells are, changing the chemical balance within the fat cells which opens the pores in the cell walls to allow the content of the fat cells to “leak” out into the surrounding interstitial space from where it is transported by the lymphatic system to be naturally metabolised by the body and used as energy.
NOTE: this treatment does not use laser or IPL.
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 Low Level Laser Therapy Level 4 accredited 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 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 the 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.
