This accredited Level 3 and 4 course provides a deeper understanding of anatomy, physiology and best practice approaches to successful Light Based Hair Reduction and Skin Rejuvenation. The learner will be typically a practitioner or therapist already using laser or intense pulsed light equipment wishing to achieve the minimum recommended educational conditions published by national educational bodies or required by public and professional indemnity insurance providers.
