Module One explains the principle nature of the aesthetic industry and its multi-discipline teams before progressing onto current technology and each treatment modality currently used by aesthetic practitioners of all levels.  The focus switches to introduce key codes of practice, qualification standards, clinical governance and industry regulation.

Module Two is an extensive study of legislation and UK Government guidelines pertinent to clinical aesthetic practice.  It further concentrates on employment law and the rules and regulations within the business environment.

Module Three enables you to define the term microbiology and explain its importance to the aesthetic practitioner along with infections or diseases micro-organisms can cause.  The methods and practices will be covered to enable you to work in full compliance and avoid the spread of infection and disease within your clinic or work place.

Module Four includes essential histology and elementary skin science.  If you are new to the study of skin or have limited knowledge, this section of your course forms a vital basis for all understanding of skin health and dysfunction enabling you to appreciate the implications of a wide variety of skin conditions and know how to treat them.

Module Five deals with the important practice of client consultation, your assessment of their suitability for aesthetic treatment and the gaining of their Informed Consent for each procedure undertaken.  You will gain the ability to carry out a thorough and accurate skin assessment both visually and systematically.

Module Seven will cover establishing and managing a MediSpa Clinic and Business Plan.
