What is the benefits of this Level 3 Certificate Course

All qualifications delivered in the UK must be accredited to ensure their quality.  Any qualification which does not have accreditation may not provide the learner with the ability to use that qualification to seek employment, obtain public liability insurance or set up in business.  This qualification will allow the learner to seek employment, set up in business and obtain public liability insurance to treat clients.

What is Blemish Removal

The process of Advanced Blemish Removal ‘dries up’ and destroys the blemished area so that it gradually disappears over a period of time.

The skin blemish removal procedures must only be performed by a qualified and advanced trained Aesthetic practitioner, who can perform this procedure depending on the complexity of skin condition. Not all skin blemishes can be safely removed by the advanced trained Aesthetic practitioner and where there are contraindications i.e if a client has undiagnosed or suspicious skin blemish, then the client must then be referred to a medical practitioner.

The treatment is completely safe as long as guidelines and protocols are followed. It is employed at the superficial level of the skin, and is only used to treat blemishes that are safe to remove. Blemish removal is quick, easy, effective and Inexpensive. After treatment the result is a completely clear and smooth skin without leaving a mark.

It is advised that some blemishes require a GP’s written consent before treatment.
