Course Curriculum:

Module 1 – Peeling back the layers.

Within this module, we show our students how to analyze the skin precisely and scientifically. Using different techniques, you will be able to analyze the skin in much more depth.

View the skin from different angles, see how your skin is related to what’s going on inside your body and how it reflects on the outside. Through a detailed consultation, you will be able to assess your client’s skin and give the greatest proposed treatment. The skin is the largest organ in the human body and gives us an extremely effective shield against our environment.  It provides a waterproof barrier, stops bacteria and allergens from penetrating, serves as protection from UV light and locks water into itself for hydration.

Become a professional in skin care and equip your clients with the knowledge to select the correct product for their skin. For the skin to function effectively it requires anti-oxidants, vitamins, water and amino acids (among other things).  Whilst we should be getting this from our diet, this is not always the case, educate your clients on the importance of correct skin care product choice. When working optimally your skin will look and feel comfortable, hydrated and will have an even glowing color.

Module 2 – The naked truth.

Within this part of your course, you will learn to perform a facial. Using a variety of techniques. Take a facial to a whole new level with the addition of facial electrical machines.

A Facial incorporates the importance of cleansing and exfoliation. Our skin naturally renews or sheds itself and this process is known as exfoliation, when we are younger this happens every 28 days but as we age it starts to naturally slow down. Many factors can impact the skins ability to renew itself effectively. When used correctly exfoliants should help stimulate cell turnover, brighten skin, help prevent congestion and help with overall cell regeneration playing a key part in your anti-age program.

Have your clients coming back time and time again as they melt away in your hands as you give a very relaxing and warm facial massage. The facial massage encourages detoxification and lymphatic drainage, which in turn reduce inflammation and swelling, creating more optimum skin health.

When the skin is revealed to be naked you can determine which electrical treatment will suit your client’s skin type. While training at The Sharon Leavy College of Hair and Beauty you will work with and learn a variety of facial electrical machines. Tone your client’s muscles with the faradic machine to ensure they have a lift on sagging jowls, remove any blemishes or toxins with the vacuum suction machine, alleviate your client’s breakouts with the use of an anti-bacterial and germicidal high-frequency treatment or add active ingredients such as collagen to their skin with iontophoresis.

Be a skin specialist and study all aspects of the skin and the possible treatments available that will allow you to become an expert in your field.
