Why take VTCT Level 3 Facial Electrical Course

The VTCT Level 3 Facial Electrotherapy Certificate at our Beauty Aesthetics Academy in London is a fully accredited and officially recognised beauty qualification focusing solely on teaching students facials and facial electrotherapy machines.

Students will expand on their ability to provide facial and skincare treatments that they would have learned in the VTCT Level 2 Facial and Skin Care course, which is also a prerequisite for this course. On Level 3, learners will further their knowledge of Dermatology, Microbiology, and Microdermabrasion.

Being a student for level 4 ( Laser hair removal and skin rejuvenation) also for level 4 ( Chemical peel and Microneedling) was the best experienced ever. I am so proud of learning by this amazing school and got advanced knowledge, because now I am working to one of the famous clinic in Mayfair, London. I will recommend this for all ladies that want a real beauty school for all the treatment from level 2 and up to advance. A big thank you for all the staff and especialy, the director Eleonora that also is the great teacher ever.

I made my level 3 beauty therapy in this school and I was very pleased with our teacher Korrin. She was very open to give a lot of knowledge, very diplomatic and patient, caring and attentive. The school location is very convenient, the course was informative and I enjoyed Sunday attendance as it allowed me to work during the week. The interior rooms are quiet simple but they had everything needed for the course.

I cannot say how grateful I am for this school, especially for two amazing tutors: Maria in facial level 2 and Carmen in level 3. From reception and all the staff involved, everything went smooth and they all make sure you have the best knowledge when completing your course.

Would recommend the school! 5 ⭐️ for their great teachers. Thank you Maria for your great expertise and engaging classes, and Carmen who literally saved a whole class with patience and huge knowledge.
