Level 3 courses build on Level 2 knowledge, which means a Level 2 certificate is required when enrolling on Level 3.
We offer Level 3 Facial Electrotherapy and Level 3 Beauty Therapy and often get asked what the main differences between these two courses are.
Facial electrotherapy is a type of cosmetic treatment involving electrical currents to stimulate facial muscles and improve the appearance of the skin. The Level 3 Facial Electrotherapy course is a professional training program designed to teach individuals the skills and knowledge needed to perform this type of treatment safely and effectively.
The course covers a range of topics, including the science behind facial electrotherapy, the different types of equipment used in the treatment, the principles of electrical safety, and the various techniques and applications of facial electrotherapy. Participants also learn about client consultation and assessment, contraindications and precautions, and how to customise treatment plans to meet individual client needs.
The Level 3 Beauty Therapy Diploma program is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of beauty therapy techniques and practices and the business and customer service skills required to succeed in this industry.
Topics covered in the program include body massage, facial electrotherapy, and body electrotherapy. Participants also learn about client consultation and assessment, contraindications and precautions, and how to customise treatment plans to meet individual client needs.
At the end of each course, students must spend two weeks at the Salon where they practice on real clients.
All our courses are fully accredited and provide globally recognised qualifications. After finishing your Level 3 course, you will gain VTCT qualification, showing your future employers your valuable skillset and setting you apart from the competition.
