What is Advanced Skin Science?
This Award is the first of its kind to be available specifically for skin care clinicians. It is a unique, in-depth study of skin anatomy, histology, physiology and the intrinsic and extrinsic processes of skin ageing. The knowledge obtained on this course will surpass anything covered in standard training.
Advanced Skin Science is suitable for anyone working in the industry and treating the skin, from beginners to those with more experience. It will provide understanding of how the skin is structured, how it functions and how it dysfunctions, all of which is vital when it comes to providing well informed, safe and effective skin treatments and addressing various dermatological issues.
 
What does Advanced Skin Science cover?
The Advanced Skin Science course is made up of the following modules;
  • The History and Physiology of the Epidermis
  • The Natural Barrier Function and Homeostasis of the Skin
  • The Extra Cellular Matrix of the Dermis
  • The Appendages, Specialist Histology and Secretions of The Skin
  • The Defence Mechanisms of the Skin and Other Functions
  • The Physiology of the Skin Ageing Process

This qualification is delivered through an e learning portal along with a supporting manual. The e learning consists of video tutorials which enable you to work at a pace that suits your personal situation. You are able to start and stop your learning at any time, day or night.

You will be asked to answer questions within your course folder and also complete a Course Assessment Workbook that will be emailed to your course tutor when completed.

Your course folder will be an 'evidence portfolio' to be presented at your examination and therefore it is essential that you complete ALL THE SECTIONS AND TASKS.

For those already working in beauty therapy, aesthetic or other clinical environments, this award will cover familiar topics and practices but it is vital that you review, reinforce and update your knowledge to ensure that you are working within the codes of best practice.
