Level 4 Ultrasound for Skin Rejuvenation Course
January 31, 2019 - February 1, 2019
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 and rosacea.
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.
