Chemical Peels are the perfect skin treatments to add to your portfolio of aesthetic procedures. Relatively quick and easy to administer, these popular treatments offer excellent solutions to a wide variety of skin conditions – from anti-ageing to scarring. But they are not without risk and it is therefore important that you can assure your clients the highest standards of training and patient care have been trained into your practice.
And not all products and procedures are the same. For severe skin conditions such as extreme pigmentation stronger chemical peels are required and that involves an advanced level of training and qualification. It is essential that you seek the right training to build on your knowledge and experience on the treatments you are keen to offer. At MATA Courses we offer the best chemical skin peel training courses for aesthetic practitioners and health care professionals. The theory component of the course is carried out on our online resource prior to attending.
At MATA we separate chemical peel procedures training into two levels in order to ensure aesthetics professionals administer only the correct type of treatment for the skin condition or objective.
The Foundation Level is the standard training course for milder skin complaints or appearance improvements such as anti-ageing. The Advanced Level is necessary if you wish to offer chemicals peels as a solution for more severe skin conditions such as scarring or deep pigmentation. In order to enrol on the Advanced Level you will need to have a greater understanding of skin anatomy and therefore a medical background with proof of qualifications is needed.
Course content for the Foundation Level Chemical Peels Training includes:
- Anatomy of the skin
- Identifying skin types
- Diagnosing skin complaints
- Different types of chemical peels/selecting the correct peel for the client
- Using superficial and medium depth chemical peels, AHA and TCA peels.
- Pre-peel prep and post-peel care
- How to deal with complications
- Demonstration by trainer
- Practical session on models
Our advanced level skin peel training course is for doctors, dentists and nurse prescribers only and will include administering deeper chemical skin peels for more severe pigmentation and scarring. These peels usually require skin preparation for the patient and down time following the treatment.
You will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of your training day, provided your tutor considers you have clearly shown an understanding of the procedure and demonstrated appropriate competencies throughout the day.
If you already have NVQ Level 3 or equivalent, you can take the course. This is typically aesthetic professionals and beauty therapists. But as many healthcare professionals such as doctors, dentists, nurses and dental nurses are considering a career diversion towards the aesthetics world, the course is also suitable for them. Although qualified to a high level, these professionals will need the depth of knowledge and practice to conduct chemical peel procedures safely and confidently.
