Level 4 Radio Frequency Course
March 1, 2018 - March 3, 2018
Radio Frequency is one of the safest non-invasive and most effective anti-aging treatment suitable for all skin colours. Radio Frequency can stimulate production of your own natural collagen and tighten the elastic fibres for long lasting natural results. Best results are usually seen on the face, neck and décolletage. It is also good for loose jowls, lines around the eyes and the forehead. Radio Frequency is also capable of tightening and contouring the body, reduce fat and treat cellulite. This results driven technology is suitable for most ages, for men or women, delivering superb results all without the use of needles. The client resumes normal activities immediately after the 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 Radio Frequency for Face and Body Level 4 Course carries 8 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 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 two days 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 three-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 Radio Frequency for Face and Body 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.
