Chemical Peel Training

Chemical Peel courses with a difference

Chemical Skin peel procedure

Chemical peel training is changing. Traditionally, beauty therapists have been limited to the beauty therapy courses dictated by their progression route while medical professionals are restricted to one-day courses with manufacturers resulting in a limited scope of practice.

However, Harley Academy now offer medical-standard courses in dermatology and skin rejuvenation for doctors, dentist, nurses, qualified beauty therapists,and many allied healthcare professionals.

Our skin rejuvenation courses will allow you to become a real skin expert. As well as chemical skin peels, they include microneedling training, dermatology courses,  and cover wider topics about skin health in general. Show employers and clients that you have the knowledge essential to career progression in aesthetics.

Everyone is different. At Harley Academy, we offer various levels of chemical peel training to suit your background. Offer peels to your current patients, widen your knowledge of clinical dermatology, or gain an internationally recognised qualification in Skin Rejuvenation to improve your employability.

Level 4 training in Skin Rejuvenation

This course offers an internationally recognised qualification for medical practitioners and people with non-medical backgrounds who are looking to advance their careers into aesthetic medicine.Alternatively, if you are looking to achieve a full Level 7 Certificate in Skin Rejuvenation the qualification pathway starts (for everyone) at Level 4.

Level 4 is the “core” qualification. It covers the most of any of our courses because it contains the foundations of good medical practice in aesthetic medicine. You will complete the material at a unique pace depending on your background, but everyone on the course masters the core skills needed to deeply understand how chemical peels and microneedling work.

The Level 4 includes a Skin Foundation Day for Beauty Professionals or a Skin Foundation Day for Medical Professionals.

Level 4 in Chemical Peels & Skin Rejuvenation: Course structure

STEP 1: Foundation Training Day

The first step in earning your qualifications is the Foundation Training day. In this one day course, you will be exposed to the complexities of the skin. Through experienced trainers and hands-on practice, you will gain an understanding of various types of skin conditions, types, and tones in order to be able to administer the appropriate procedures.

If you are not yet sure whether aesthetic medicine is for you, we offer the Foundation Day as a  standalone course for doctors, dentist, nurse, beauty professionals, and healthcare professionals.

STEP 2: Online learning

We offer a next-level digital learning experience, created in collaboration with OCB Media, the largest online learning supplier to the NHS.

Our online learning includes interactive exercises, videos, and quizzes that will help you gain knowledge on skills needed for aesthetic medicine. The units you will cover online include theory about microneedling, mesotherapy and chemical peels but also:

  • Professionalism, Law & Ethics
  • Health & Safety
  • Dermatology, Anatomy & Physiology
  • Psychology
  • Topical Skin Therapy

STEP 3: Clinical Mentoring

At Harley Academy, we realize that hands-on training is an imperative part of developing your practical skills. With this in mind, we make sure that you have at least two mentoring days for each level of the Skin Rejuvenation qualification. The clinical mentoring will consolidate your confidence as a skin expert, allowing you to:

  • Gain experience with carrying out real patient consultations
  • Understand different skin types and how to treat complications
  • Learn how to create personalised treatment plans for your client
  • Get direct feedback on your technique
  • Experience with working in a top cosmetic clinic

STEP 4: Assessment

To achieve your qualification you need to pass some written tests and collect a logbook of 24 treatments that you have performed. Once you’ve been through the online learning and performed 24 treatments you should be more than confident and proficient in both the theory and practice of skin rejuvenation. Passing your assessments will enable you to prove this.
