VTCT LEVEL 4 BLEMISH REMOVAL Course

VTCT LEVEL 4 BLEMISH REMOVAL

Course Objectives

Blemish Removal is done using a technique known as of Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (ACP or Advanced Electrolysis). Electrolysis was first invented in 1875 for its use on an in-growing eyelash by a Dr Charles Michel (an ophthalmologist from Missouri USA), electrolysis is achieved by applying a tiny probe (size of any eyelash) which directs a small current, which then removes/treats and cauterises the blemish.

As Advanced Cosmetic Procedures (ACP) uses electrolysis for cauterisation, this makes it suitable for removal or treatment of a wide diversity of skin lesions and blemishes, which can be done quickly, easily, some immediately or a others in a few sessions without cutting, stitching or leaving any marks or scars. Therefore, offering immediate and effective results which are permanent.

These blemishes are not instantaneously recognisable by the public and as a professional ACP practitioner it is expected that you are be able to recognise what each imperfection is and how to treat it. As well as understanding the causes of most imperfections (see each individual blemish)

The practitioner must also be able to distinguish blemishes and other non-treatable skin abnormalities such as chloasma (butterfly mask of pregnancy – disappears post pregnancy), vertigo (no pigmentation at all – white patch/area) or ephilides (freckles).
