As someone who wants to build a successful business, you need to be sure your aesthetic training will be a good investment.

Most medical professionals we train start with basic Botox and dermal fillers. And if you’re thinking of making the move to aesthetics, this is absolutely the best place to start.

As the two most popular non-surgical treatments in the UK, Botox and dermal fillers are likely to form the core of your business. Learning how to perform Botox and filler treatments safely is essential if you want to hit the ground running in your aesthetic career.

Some of our delegates decide to stop there. Huge demand for injectable treatments means it’s perfectly possible to make a great income from offering Botox and fillers alone.

But if you want more from your practice, you’ll want to diversify.

Why train in Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion treatment makes a great addition to any aesthetic practice. As a deep exfoliant, it complements injectable treatments (rather than doing the same job), which allows you to provide a more comprehensive service to your existing patients.

You can also use microdermabrasion to attract business from a whole new client base seeking minimally invasive rejuvenation treatments.

Microdermabrasion is also an extremely cost-effective treatment to perform. Once you’ve trained (£350 + VAT) and invested in your microdermabrasion machine (prices vary, but are usually very affordable), the consumables used for each treatment are very inexpensive.

The treatment is usually charged out at around £60 per session, and many patients will want to book a course of three or six treatments with you in order to get the best results.

As an added bonus, at Cosmetic Courses our Medical Microdermabrasion training is offered in combination with Chemical Peel training, so you learn two new techniques in one session!

How often do our Microdermabrasion courses take place?

Our courses usually take place once a month. Our next available date is January 22nd.

Where do we offer Microdermabrasion training?

Medical microdermabrasion is a method used to resurface the skin by peeling away a very fine layer with each treatment received. The procedure is completely non-invasive, simple, and painless and results in the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines that come with age. It is just as effective as more expensive laser resurfacing treatments or chemical peels in getting rid of superficial imperfections on the skin. Microdermabrasion also can help heal mild cases of acne, and can lessen pigmentation issues like age spots. These treatments are also successful at reducing oily skin and shrinking pores.

Microdermabrasion is able to smooth skin and improve its tone by using a small device that can be held easily in the hand to apply a special cream to the skin. This cream contains thousands of tiny crystals. While the crystals are peeling away a layer of dead skin, the device also vacuums away the crystals along with the old skin cells. After a treatment, the next layer of skin that is smoother and softer is revealed. With each microdermabrasion treatment, more dead skin cells are removed and new cells are generated faster than they normally would be without the treatment. While new skin cells are growing so is new collagen, which makes the skin thicker and tighter, thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Another advantage of microdermabrasion is that it also helps the skin produce elastin. Elastin makes skin more supple. These treatments also increase the flow of blood to the dermis, allowing the skin to repair itself more quickly and efficiently.

Results of microdermabrasion can be seen with the initial treatment, leaving your skin looking refreshed and aglow and you feeling better about yourself. If you feel like treating yourself to a day at the spa, add a microdermabrasion treatment to your schedule and walk out feeling like a new you.

More than one treatment with this system may be necessary in order to treat certain issues like light acne scarring and age spots and to get the big results you want when it comes to those fine lines and wrinkles. With each treatment you will see those problem areas fade and your skin will respond better to anti-aging creams and lotions and to acne medications.

Microdermabrasion treatments are greatly successful and can be used on people with just about any skin type. However, those with serious cases of acne should not use microdermabrasion.
