PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy and Dermaroller (microneedling) are both popular choices when it comes to skin rejuvenation. The remarkable results of the treatments are often seen throughout the beauty world as well as among ‘A listers’. Not only do these treatments create fantastic results on their own but once combined the results from working together are phenomenal. Here we look at each procedure in PRP vs Dermaroller and the benefits of combining the two into your patients treatment plan.

First things first, lets understand them a bit better…

What is PRP and how does it work?

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy otherwise known as PRP is a natural treatment used to rejuvenate the skin. The results show a fresher, brighter appearance.

The treatment uses the bodies own growth factors to promote healthier younger skin. Using the Cellenis system, blood is drawn and then spun in the centrifuge machine which separates the platelet-poor plasma and platelet-rich plasma.

The clear (good) plasma is re-injected back into the skin which stimulates soft tissue rejuvenation. This wakes up the bodies own repair process which stimulates new elastin and collagen.

Platelet rich plasma therapy is suitable for all skin types and recovery time is little. Due to the nature of the treatment,  no chemicals are used, only the bodies own repair system to promote healthier skin with long lasting results.

What is Microneedling and how does it work?

Microneedling therapy is a treatment that stimulates the skin to repair itself safely and naturally. The roller contains clinically proven micro needles which when rolled over the skin cause minimally invasive puncturing and pin point bleeding, The body is then alerted and begins it’s healing process by sending collagen to the surface of the skin to repair the ‘damage’.

This influx of collagen begins to fix certain problems in that area;

  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimising acne scarring
  • Refreshing the skin

The benefits of combining

Kim Kardashian is a big fan of the benefits of combing treatments

Both of the treatments work wonders on the skin by using a natural approach to skin rejuvenation. Although they may sound similar they work in different ways to achieve maximum results. Combining both therapies allows them to work hand in hand together to achieve maximum effect.

Both treatments work by controlled wounding of the skin which in turn stimulates collagen, elastin and fibroblast activity. The added growth factors from the PRP then intensify when combined with Dermaroller.

Dermaroller and PRP also carry great benefits when combined with other skin therapies. Making them a great component in your skin care regime.

Patients undergoing these treatments can see results such as: 

  • Reduction of fine lines & wrinkles
  • Smoother skin appearance
  • Reduction of scars
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Even skin tones
  • Lightening of hyper-pigmentation & skin tone
  • Pore appearance reduction
  • Glowing, fresher skin
  • Younger complexion

Our Leeds clinic is now one of our most popular training locations for Cosmetic Courses. Leeds is a vibrant city and claiming to become the ‘London of the North’. With huge investments being put into the area and convenient travel connections from most UK cities including Sheffield, Manchester and Yorkshire, we knew it would be an ideal training location for our delegates.

With the development of Leeds, there is plenty of demand for new businesses and as a result of this the city has seen a growth in the population of inspiring, dynamic individuals. So with more investment into the city and more money to spend on luxuries, the Northern regions really have become a great place to set up a lucrative aesthetic business.

Our Leeds training facility is based in the skin clinic Skindustry™, which is ideally located in Bingley. There is a direct rail link located less than 1 minute of Skindustry™ Clinic and multiple parking facilities are available. With the growth of this location we are pleased to be able to accommodate many more delegates from other areas such as Scotland, Ireland and Newcastle. Our team will also provide you with useful hotel and travel information to help you plan your stay.

Skindustry Clinic, 113 Main Street, Bingley, West Yorkshire, BD16 2HT

Skindustry™ is a modern, high end skin clinic which is run by an experienced welcoming aesthetic team who can give you all of the support you need. Skindustry™ is a fully functioning skin clinic and CQC regulated, ensuring a professional environment for your training.

Which aesthetic training courses are offered in Leeds?

  • At Cosmetic Courses we understand the busy schedules of our delegates and pride ourselves in being as flexible as possible to accommodate all training needs. We currently offer a variety of training courses in our Leeds location including our Foundation Botox and Dermal Filler courses, which we currently offer once a month. We also offer 1-2-1 training days for Botox and Dermal Filler, which can be either a full day or a half day and can range from basic to advanced level to suit all abilities.
  • Another popular course we offer is the Non-Surgical Facelift (also known as the 8 Point Facelift) training, a brilliant alternative to surgery that will subtly reshape and redefine the face.
  • Due to popular demand over the last year we have extended our course offering in our Leeds location. Our training repertoire now includes the ever growing skin rejuvenation treatments such as Chemical Peels and Dermaroller. These procedures can often seem more appealing to patients who are new to the world of aesthetics as they are less invasive than Botox and Fillers. Many people interested in non-surgical treatments are now opting for chemical peels as an introduction or as an added benefit to their current treatment plan, depicting a growth in demand for skin rejuvenation. Therefore, it is an excellent way to tempt clients into the world of non-surgical treatments.
  • Another popular course we are offering at Leeds is Platelet Rich Plasma Training, which is becoming increasingly popular due to the fact there is no use of artificial products; it is a popular treatment not only on it’s own,  but it also compliments other treatments such as dermal fillers or the dermaroller.

Which ever stage you are at in your training, there should be something for you at our aesthetic training location in Leeds.

Due to the quality of teaching, and expertise of our trainers Pauline Walton and Nick, we are proud to say that the popularity of our training in Leeds has grown year on year.

As a Beauty Therapist, you’ve put in the hard work to build up a loyal client base.

But while you can help your clients with a lot of their aesthetic issues, there are probably some needs you can’t meet. 

Current beauty therapy training only qualifies you to treat some complaints you’re likely to encounter in your clients. And for an ambitious Beauty Therapist like you, that can be frustrating.

Not only does it mean you can’t provide a truly comprehensive service to your clients, you’re also missing out on the revenue from treatments they’re seeking elsewhere!

So what can you do?

You already have a good understanding of aesthetics and the “science of beauty”. And you already have the client base. 

All you need to do is broaden your repertoire. Extend your beauty salon treatments to include some popular non-surgical aesthetic treatments.

You want to become a ‘one-stop beauty shop’, so there’s every chance your clients won’t need to go anywhere else! And there are a few Beauty Therapist Training Courses that will help you do just that.

Which Beauty Therapist Training Courses are available?

Cosmetic Courses: photo showing Dermaroller training

There are two obvious choices when it comes to adding new treatments to your beauty repertoire. Chemical skin peels and Dermaroller micro-needling.

With proper training you’ll be able to safely offer these advanced aesthetic techniques to your clients – either individually or as part of a beauty package.

Add them to your treatment menu and watch your profits skyrocket.

Both Dermaroller and skin peel treatments are extremely cost-effective to perform. Once you’ve trained, the consumables used for each treatment are very inexpensive.

Genuine Dermaroller treatments use no product on the skin, so the only expense is the disposable roller. Treatments are usually charged at around £225, and a course of at least 3 is usually recommended for best results. 

Skin peels have a broad scope, treating specific skin complaints as well as improving the general condition of the skin, which makes them popular with all ages. Prices vary depending on the product used, but are typically from £75-£150 per treatment – and again, a course of at least 3 is usually recommended to get optimum results.

Training in both means you can provide your customers with proper, comprehensive treatment plans, leading to a significant increase in both your income and your client satisfaction levels.

Our next available Beauty Therapist Training Courses

Would you like to get some more treatments under your belt? We’re always adding new dates for Beauty Therapist Training Courses throughout the year, but these are our next available dates:

  • Chemical Peel training – Buckinghamshire – BOOK NOW

With shocking celebrity photos and a never-ending supply of horror stories on Botched Bodies, as aestheticians we’re up against it. But what can we do to clean up the reputation of the cosmetic industry?

The long-awaited Keogh Report, published in 2013, found what most of us in the industry already know. Non-surgical cosmetic treatments are grossly under-regulated.

And while the report made several recommendations, so far it hasn’t translated into new legislation.

So in the absence of strong regulations, it’s our responsibility as practitioners to do what we can to reassure patients. And there’s a couple of important ways we can do that.

Cosmetic Training 

UntitledUnfortunately, lax rules have created conditions where unqualified, unscrupulous practitioners have been allowed to flourish. 

It’s hugely disappointing that Botox and fillers can be legally injected by people without any medical training. So if we want to raise standards, those of us who recognise the need for proper training need to make our voices heard.

Pursuing the best, most comprehensive cosmetic training we can, and displaying our credentials, is vital. We need to create a ‘race to the top’, where the best practitioners help decide the new norm. 

Talking to patients about our training, in the form of newsletters and displayed certificates, will help raise awareness – and put clear water between us and unqualified practitioners.

We need to make sure patients expect their practitioners to be medically qualified, and have pursued additional cosmetic training. 

Our patients trust us. So it’s our duty not only to make sure we’ve pursued the best training we can, and are updating it as needed, but to make sure they know how important that is. 

Accreditation

Cosmetic Courses: Save Face Certification LogoAccreditation is voluntary, so by seeking it out you’re sending a powerful message to your patients, and by extension, the industry. The bare minimum is not enough.

The organisation Save Face was founded in 2013 as a direct response to the Keogh Review of the Regulation of Cosmetic Interventions.

Their Save Face Scheme is a voluntary register of cosmetic practitioners who have been thoroughly vetted by doctors.

It gives independent accreditation to practitioners and clinics who complete a rigorous cosmetic training programme and demonstrate that their practice complies with robust standards. 

They check professional credentials, interview practitioners, and visit clinics to ensure they’re fit for purpose, all products are stored correctly and data protection is adhered to. 

Accreditation is a reassuring ‘shorthand’ for patients. A prominent logo lets them know that their practitioner conforms to certain standards, and has nothing to hide.

The more practitioners seek and achieve accreditation, the more patients will start to look for it as a minimum standard.

At Cosmetic Courses, we’ve teamed up with Save Face to promote their enhanced accreditation programme to our delegates. All those who meet the criteria and achieve Save Face accreditation are entitled to a discount on further training with us.

As professionals, the power is in our hands to bring about the changes we want to see in the industry.

Educating ourselves and our patients, and seeking accreditation, are powerful tools to help raise the bar when it comes to patients’ expectations. And in time, those clinics and practitioners who don’t measure up will either have to take steps to improve, or fall by the wayside.

Cosmetic Courses offer cosmetic training to medical professionals looking to move into the aesthetics industry. We have training centres throughout the UK, including Bucks, Birmingham, Leeds, London, Kent and Essex. For information on any of our cosmetic training courses, call the team on 01844 318317 or email us at [email protected].

 

 

With demand for aesthetic treatments growing fast, and more professionals looking to enter the industry, the number of aesthetic training providers is expanding too.

Which means if you’re a medical professional looking to train in aesthetics, you’ve more choice than ever. But given the number of providers out there, it’s important to do your research and find the right provider for you.

If you’ve landed here, we guess you’re considering us (thanks!). So to give you a flavour of what you can expect, here are 5 reasons to consider our Aesthetic Training Courses…

1. Our team 

We think the number one reason to choose us is the thing we’re most proud of – our people. The Cosmetic Courses team, handpicked and led by Consultant Plastic Surgeon Adrian Richards, go the extra mile for our delegates.

2. Our history

We’ve been doing this for a long time. We’re the UK’s most established provider of aesthetic training courses, starting life back in 2002.

Over those 13 years, we’ve continuously refined and developed our courses, and added several new ones, in order to make sure we’re offering the best aesthetic training available in the UK.

To date, we’ve successfully trained and mentored over 3,000 Doctors, Dentists and Nurses, many of whom are now running their own successful businesses – and 72% of whom came back for more training.

3. Our comprehensive service

There are plenty of challenges involved in changing career. So we’re determined to make the training part as easy and hassle-free as possible for our delegates.

We provide all the models and resources you need for your training. All you need to do is turn up on the day, ready to learn.

We also offer a bespoke, tailored service that lets you piece together a comprehensive training plan to suit your specific needs.

4. Our business support

As a medical professional, the practical side to aesthetics should come easily to you. But if you want to work for yourself, you’ll need to know about the ins and outs of running a business too.

So we’ve put measures in place to help you.

Once you’ve completed one of our aesthetic training courses, you’ll get access to the Members area of our website. Rather than having to create patient medical history and consent forms, treatment information sheets and other essential documents yourself, you can simply download them from here.

We’re also partnered with a pharmacy to give you a convenient way to access the products and supplies you need to run your practice – with cost savings too.

5. We’ll help you find new clients – for free

Training is only part of the picture. We know it can take time to build up your client base in the early days. So after you complete a course with us, we’ll automatically give you a free listing on our National Cosmetic Network (NCN) website.

The website is targeted at patients looking for safe, insured and accredited aesthetic practitioners in their local area. You can update your profile as you complete more training with us, so any prospective patients can see your expert credentials at a glance.

We only list practitioners that we’ve personally trained, so a listing on the NCN is a vote of confidence from the most established aesthetic training company in the land. Priceless!

What can you learn as a beauty therapist?

Why train in Chemical Skin Peels?

Chemical Skin Peel training sessionChemical Skin Peels are a popular treatment for anti-ageing, treating specific skin complaints, and improving the general condition of the skin.

The treatment will help treat fine lines, improve skin clarity and reduce visible pores, treat superficial scarring including acne scars, and help improve the appearance of acne, melasma and rosacea.

This broad scope, plus the fact that treatment is very affordable, means it appeals to people of all ages. So there’s great potential for attracting new clients, and introducing the treatment to your existing clients – creating a healthy new revenue stream.

 Why learn Genuine Dermaroller?

Genuine Dermaroller training sessionTraining in Genuine Dermaroller will allow you to treat stretch marks, chicken pox, acne and other depressed scars, as well as improving sun damage, fine lines, uneven skin tone and the general texture and tone of the skin.

The micro-needling treatment is great for anti-ageing and rejuvenation, but particularly popular for treating sun-damaged skin in the décolletage area.

It’s a unique treatment with an excellent safety profile, as it uses no product on the skin. This makes it a very cost-effective treatment to offer your clients, with a very healthy return. Treatments are typically charged at around £225, and a course of at least 3 is usually recommended for best results.

Micro-needling has become a very popular procedure for our clients with Dermaroller recently providing a new innovation in their field of the eDermaStamp ®. The eDermaStamp ® is the newest way to treat skin conditions allowing the professional to focus the treatments to smaller areas of the client’s skin.

The eDermaStamp® consists of six fine needle precisions made of stainless steel micro-needles which create a small penetration of the skin causing collagen to be easily formed through the stimulation of these skin cells. When the eDermaStamp ® treatment is repeated it helps to improve the skin and reduces fine lines and wrinkles to give a younger looking skin.

The eDermaStamp® is an innovative product that provides 50-150 punctures to the skin per second. Therefore the eDermaStamp® can concentrate on specific areas micro-needlingmaking micro-needling more precise to a specific area on the clients skin, giving more effective results. Usually this is performed on certain acne regions, scars, blemishes or sun damage.

This step forward in the Micro-needling industry movement shows each medical advancement and the effect it will have on the aesthetics industry. eDermaStamp® is a step forward to improve the process of micro-needling to enhance your skin quality and give you a more youthful look through the increase of your collagen cycle .

Here at Cosmetic Courses, as well as our ever-popular Botox courses, we offer training in micro-needling, which has a large demand from our delegates and clientele.

Micro-needling is a way of improving the skin’s condition; it has the effect of helping the skin regenerate quickly by repairing itself rapidly. It also creates a smoother look to the skin and gives the effects of a brighter, younger glow.

The micro-needling uses microsurgical precision needles mounted around a sterile rolling device. The needles penetrate the skin and create microscopic channels or columns, which soon after heal. This cycle causes the skin to produce new collagen and elastin resulting in an enhanced look to the skin surface.

Micro-needling is mainly used to stimulate your skin which helps combat the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and scarring caused by acne and chicken pox. Therefore micro-needling although primarily used on the face it can also be used on certain areas of the body.

The treatments itself usually takes between 10 and 30 minutes depending on the area being treated. We provide anaesthetic cream which is to be applied around 30 minutes prior to treatment to keep the pain minimal but you may still experience some discomfort. As it is a gradual enhancement not an instant effect, the results will start to develop around 4-8 weeks into the skin regeneration process.

Micro-needling has become very popular with the effects lasting over several months following a course of treatments, which is why we find it essential to offer our delegates training in micro-needling so they can offer this procedure effectively to their clients. Therefore micro-needling is a successful way to boost your skin and your career in the aesthetic industry.

There was a really interesting LinkedIn Aesthetics & Beauty Group thread recently about how best to deal with clients with rosacea.

We thought this discussion could be of benefit to our delegates at Cosmetic Courses as it is a relatively common ailment presented in clinic and quite tricky to deal with. As a potential contraindication, rosacea impacts upon many skincare / medical aesthetic treatments which you are offering.

Interestingly, one LinkedIn user opened the discussion by wondering how often “Rosacea” is actually misdiagnosed. True rosacea is estimated to effect about 1 in 10 people. It is characterised by:

  • episodes of flushing
  • outbreaks of spots
  • persistent redness of the skin
  • Visibility of small blood vessels
  •  Thickening and enlarging (especially around the nose area), but this is in more severe cases

It is counted as a chronic, long-term condition which is made worse by a number of trigger factors including extreme weather exposure, stress, certain food/drink.

Because there are so many different aspects to these symptoms, Broken Capillaries on the face are often wrongly diagnosed as Rosacea…so are papular / pustular acne break outs with a large degree of redness and even tendencies to flushing may be labelled Rosacea too! On the other extreme, some patients may have been given an official rosacea diagnosis by their GP but hide telling you for fear you won’t treat them or due to the connotations with stress / alcohol consumption.

It is good practise (as agreed on the LinkedIn thread) that, when dealing with rosacea only a doctor or dermatologist should make an official diagnosis. If you do have suspicions that your patient is suffering from this condition, you could gently try and persuade them to make an appointment. However, you should never share your own diagnosis with the patient.

Where does that leave you, with treating a potential Rosacea patient?

Lovely as it would be to “fix” every patient’s skin problems, as one LinkedIn thread user admits, it just isn’t possible. Rosacea is a long-term problem without a known cure and certain treatments are actually proven to aggravate and make the condition worse.

If the rosacea presents with active acne, for example, then you should react as with any other active acne case and avoid treatments like Genuine Dermaroller Therapy, botox to the area and microdermabrasion which could spread the acne or cause infection. You will not need to mention rosacea to your patient: you can just cite the active acne as your reason for being unable to pursue this course of treatment and this is an ideal excuse to refer them to their GP who may identify the rosacea at the same time.

For rosacea patients with particularly irritated, red skin and blood vessels very close to the surface, treatments like abrasive peels and microdermabrasion should be avoided.

However, your rosacea patient may still be able to have some treatment. If no active acne is present, use your experience to decide whether a gentle L-absorbic acid type peel might be suitable (for example) and Genuine Dermaroller, too, is fine on non-irritated areas. It is all about really getting to know your patient, doing a very thorough skin history assessment with them and using your professional discretion. If in any doubt, refer to a GP first and remember you are within your right to gently suggest it would be better not to treat – rosacea is a recognised contraindication.

We hope this has been helpful to you. For more advice, please do not hesitate to contact Cosmetic Courses on 0845 230 4110.
