We offer training independent of all machine suppliers and do not link with any particular supplier.

Our machines are used in our salon on clients and they produce excellent results for clients.

The course is designed to help develop an understanding of being able to identify and control hazards in your aesthetic clinic and to be able to identify skin and hair conditions during laser hair removal and skin rejuvenation treatments and who is suitable to undergo treatments.
