Advanced skin care has moved far beyond the traditional beauty therapy education, resulting in a new breed of evidence-based courses suitable for medical and non-medical based practitioners.
Since the JCCP (Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners) launched in the UK in partnership with the CPSA (Cosmetic Standards Practice Authority), we have a new set of guidelines for the delivering of training. It is voluntary, so not all awarding bodies or training providers will adhere to the new standard in education. When performing your research look for courses that mention adhering to the JCCP & CPSA or the HEE Qualification Requirements for Delivery of Cosmetic Procedures.
Regardless if you are a Doctor, Nurse or Therapist you want to be at the forefront of practical skills, developments in medical devices and the training to support your career. ATAI provide an expanding course offering developed from the new standards. Current medical device technology for practical based training plus blended learning to maximise flexibility in education.

Level 4 Certificate in Skin Rejuvenation
Our new flagship course on Skin Rejuvenation is the first of its type in Ireland. It represents a fundamental shift in training providing a well-rounded foundation in dermal science. Also new in the course format is psychology for aesthetic practice. This critical module addresses “at risk groups” and body dysmorphia, an unfortunate growing concern. The theory is delivered through our eLearning system, which provides flexibility for you while allows us to concentrate more on skills in the practical classes.
Another shift in the new course design is to move away from ‘modular learning” which always leaves knowledge gaps. Our focus is on delivering a broad understanding of all techniques and the required knowledge to carry out the treatment the client needs rather than a procedure the person was taught. Once you have completed the level 4 course you can progress to level 5, the course goes through to level 7. Details on levels 5, 6 and 7 will be released in 2019, it is, however a requirement to complete the level 4 course before proceeding.
ITEC Level 4 Certificate in Skin Peels
While many brands exist we concentrate on the active ingredients Beta hydroxy acids (BHA) and (AHA) or alpha hydroxy Acids. Teaching the science behind the products allows learners to understand better the products they are using and aids in brand selection.
ITEC Level 4 Certificate in Skin Needling
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) or also known as Microneedling or Dermal Rolling can be a safe and effective treatment for a broad list of skin conditions. It is also an effective therapy for fine lines and wrinkles and in the boosting of collagen production. What is often overlooked is how effective (CIT) is when combined with topical serums. The wound response mechanism is only half the treatment benefit. Vitamin C based serum as an example is often used when treating scar tissue or for skin rejuvenation. It plays a vital role in the fight against skin ageing, both in photo ageing and chronological.
