As of January 2016, the regulatory body states that all therapists wishing to carry out laser or IPL treatments must have the Level 4 qualification. This is now a mandatory requirement in 2016. The insurance companies also require that laser technicians must hold a level 4 laser and IPL certificate in order to be insured.


The VTCT Level 4 Certificate in Laser and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is an advanced qualification that has been specially designed for beauty therapists who would like to qualify as a laser aesthetic technician.


We will help you to develop all the skills required to perform Laser/IPL hair removal treatments and skin rejuvenation. In addition to this, students will learn the basic health and safety precautions for operating laser technology in the salon. Our training will also cover skills to analyse the hair and skin type, identify any treatment contra-indications, likely contra-actions, and also how to develop a specific course of treatment plan to suit individual client needs.


In skin rejuvenation, we will teach you how to use Laser/IPL to treat the following skin conditions: wrinkles and fine lines, age spots, sun spots and freckles, sun damaged skin, acne breakouts and pigmentation marks, to name a few.


You will learn the ways to manage safe working practices and how to identify and control hazards in an aesthetic clinic or beauty salon environment.
