Course Outline
What will you learn?

You will learn the essential practical skills of delivering facial treatments to clients whilst understanding the health and safety needed within a salon environment.

The Level 2 facial and skincare unit will enable you to perform a professional full facial treatment on a client.

The level 3 units expand on the essential skills you will have grasped in the level 2 part of the combined course, encouraging you to incorporate electrotherapy machines with facial and skin care treatments. You will treat clients with decreased facial definition, slower collagen production, and unhealthy and puffy skin.

Facial electrotherapy treatments learnt in the course include: High Frequency, Microcurrent, EMS, and Lymph Drainage. Compared to other beauty schools, we have incorporated the complete Level 3 Facial Electrotherapy qualification so you will also be trained in applying microdermabrasion and advanced skin theory.

As the course is designed to take you from beginner facial enthusiasts to expert facial therapists, you will also complete Level 3 dermatology and microbiology, in which you will gain an in-depth understanding of facial and skin care.

To obtain VTCT Level 2 & 3 Skincare and Facial Electrotherapy qualifications, you will need to complete the following five units:
  • 1 Facial Massage and Skincare
  • 2 Provide Facial Electrotherapy Treatments
  • 3 Apply Micro Dermabrasion
  • 4 Dermatology and Microbiology
  • 5 Health, Safety and Hygiene of the workplace
  • 6 Client Care, Communication and Salon Reception Duties
