Why take Chemical Peel Training – VTCT (ITEC) Level 4

VTCT (ITEC) Level 4 Certificate in Skin Peeling (chemical peels) is an advanced qualification that has been designed uniquely for level 3 qualified beauty therapists or medical experts who want to add advanced aesthetic treatments to their treatment offerings. 

The Level 4 chemical peels course will not only teach you how to correctly complete skin peeling treatments. Students will also learn the science behind the procedure to develop all the skills required to carry out skin peeling treatments safely.

Compared to other chemical peel training providers, Ray Cochrane will be using aesthetic industry-leading skincare brand TOSKANI  products for training. TOSKANI is a laboratory from Barcelona with 30 years of pharmaceutical experience creating injectables, mesotherapy, cosmetic, and chemical peeling products. Many other beauty schools, use stock products, but at Ray Cochrane, we want students to work with the highest quality products. 

This course is offered by attending part of our Level 4 chemical peels and microneedling combination course, which combined our best sellers VTCT Level 4 Chemical Skin Peel with VTCT Level 4 Microneedling to create the ideal aesthetics training program.

Upon completing the Level 4 Chemical Peeling course, you will reach a very high level of competence at performing chemical skin peeling treatments safely and professionally.
