Our entry-level Cosmetic Dermatology Foundation Training provides you with a basic grounding in the fundamentals of cosmetic dermatology, including skin analysis with and without a device, skin science and treatment planning for medical aesthetics practitioners

Skin analysis using an Observ device at the Harley Academy Cosmetic Dermatology Foundation Training


Suitable for beginners, it involves a full day in clinic where you'll learn how to conduct professional skin consultations, perform skin analyses, including using a device, understand treatment planning, active ingredients and further your skin-based learning.

Cosmetic Dermatology usually refers to an aesthetics practitioner with a deep understanding of the skin, especially skin ageing. This usually includes being trained in tailoring targeted skincare and skin treatment plans, and administering advanced skin treatments. These include varying depths of chemical peels, microneedling and injectable skin boosters

Our Cosmetic Dermatology Course is designed for medical professionals who want to develop their knowledge of skin science and broaden their clinical aesthetics skills by delivering a wide range of cosmetic skin treatments. Ideal for doctors, dentists, nurses and clinical pharmacists
