VTCT (ITEC) Level 4 Award in Chemical Skin Peeling (1)

The Level 4 Chemical Peel course delves beyond the mere execution of skin peeling treatments. Participants will acquire an in-depth comprehension of the scientific underpinnings behind the procedures, thereby building the skills and knowledge required for the safe administration of skin peeling treatments.

In addition, the course encompasses comprehensive instruction on conducting thorough consultations, devising personalised treatment plans, and delivering thorough post-treatment guidance. Students will learn how to use a range of chemical agents for skin peeling, including but not limited to:

  • Lactic Acid
  • Salicylic Acid
  • Azelaic Acid

Distinguishing itself from competing chemical peel training providers, Cosmetic Courses has aligned with the aesthetic industry’s premier skincare brand. Our commitment is to equip students with the highest calibre products for optimal learning outcomes.

The training will cover the full consultation process, including client engagement, outlining procedures and contraindications. Participants will also learn post-treatment guidance, the importance of sun protection, infection prevention, and supplementary treatment strategies.

The science behind chemical peels, spanning the ‘whys,’ ‘how’s,’ and ‘when’ will be taught in detail. The course will also cover health and safety protocols, this will include areas such as establishing a sterilized workspace, equipment sanitation, and proper equipment disposal.

Attendees will be equipped with extensive knowledge on an array of skin concerns, ranging from acne and dehydrated skin to dull complexion, enlarged pores, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. The course mandates the completion of six case studies integrating various acid treatments.
