Course Overview

Beauty Therapists are experts in therapeutic facial and body care, with a strong understanding of key body systems, skin biology, anatomy and cosmetic chemistry. Using this knowledge, Beauty Therapists provide a range of non-medical face, body and relaxation treatments customised to a client’s needs, and recommend appropriate products and after-care. While Beauty Therapists can perform therapies to address specific conditions such as acne or eczema, they do not diagnose these conditions.

A Beauty Therapist will work with a range of equipment and products, such as performing microdermabrasion or using hot wax, and must be trained in their correct usage and handling to perform these treatments safely. Some Beauty Therapists choose to specialise in a particular stream of treatments, such as spa therapy or permanent hair removal.
