What is this course?

Our Advanced Skin Science course is a unique in-depth study of skin anatomy, histology, physiology and intrinsic and extrinsic processes of skin ageing.

Who is this course suitable for?

If you are already working within aesthetic skin care or looking at a career change or additional skin knowledge, this course is a fundamental 'must have' for any practitioner.  A superior understanding of how the skin is structured, how it functions and how it dysfunctions, is vital if you are to be able to provide well informed, safe and effective remedial treatment of the skin.

As the first qualification of its kind to be available specifically for the skin care clinician, this learning programme extends your knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the skin considerably further than standard training and in unprecedented depth.  It will provide you with a solid basis for further study and better understanding of dermatological issues to enable you to become a true specialist in skin health management.

 

This award 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

Without exception, a full and thorough understanding of the way in which normal skin behaves is essential if we are to effectively promote its day to health and address issues of its dysfunction.  This is not a 'dry' biology study - the concepts of our Advanced Skin Science Unit is referenced specifically to your work in treating the more complex and difficult skin conditions which you will be faced with in an advanced aesthetic skin clinic.

LEARNING OBJECTIVE

On completion, you will have a solid basis on which to build further understanding and the content of our course is referenced specifically to your work in treating the more complex and difficult skin conditions which present themselves in the MediSpa Clinic.  Therefore, as a foundation to all other study of the skin, this element of the Level 4 course portfolio is essential for anyone wishing to specialise in remedial skin care and advanced aesthetic treatments.

This is a distance learning qualification in which knowledge is delivered through audio visual presentations via a bespoke online learning system.  These video tutorials enable you to work at your own pace that suits your personal situation.  You are able to start and stop your learning at any time, day or night.

There will be a multiple choice final exam that will take place at our centre.  Please see AGENDA.
