As a new government report urgently calls for more “skilled practitioners and responsible providers” in a booming aesthetic market, the time is now for beauticians and aesthetic therapists to invest in specialist training to hone their skills.

London College of Fashion’s Aesthetic Therapist short course has been designed to arm existing beauty practitioners with the skills to specialise in aesthetic treatments, which chimes particularly timely as the Department of Health’s Review of Cosmetic Interventions seeks to protect consumers from inadequately qualified practitioners.

Add to this the findings of a 2013 Mintel report that showed a booming aesthetic therapies market, with non-surgical treatments set to grow to £3.6 billion by 2015, and it becomes clear that highly trained therapists are perfectly poised to benefit from a lucrative and growing sector.

The first of its kind in the UK and now in its second year, the intensive 10-week Aesthetic Therapist course at LCF has been developed in consultation with stem cell specialists, Harley Street Skin.

It combines essential knowledge of human anatomy, physiology and skin biology with education on the latest treatments and procedures, to provide the beauty industry with unrivaled practitioners that will provide excellent patient care and support to aesthetic doctors and professionals.

As course leader, Yvonne Mills, explains, “We have utilized our ever expanding industry contacts and knowledge to create the short course, incorporating in-depth theory and hands-on workshops, delivered by industry leaders, to equip the next generation with the tools and techniques required to meet the growing demand from the aesthetic industry nationwide.”
