At Level 2, beauty therapy services include make-up application, hair removal by waxing, manicure and pedicure, manual facial services (without using a machine) and lash and brow services (such as tinting and shaping). With these Level 2 skills, a graduate could seek employment in a beauty salon or as a mobile therapist offering these key beauty skills which although “every day” services, are relied on by many customers as essential to their grooming routine.

At Level 3, beauty therapy services offer a progression from Level 2, including body massage, the use of electrotherapy on face and body, for example facial treatment like microdermabrasion, high frequency or lifting treatments and body treatments for muscle toning or cellulite for example.

The Level 4 Diploma in Advanced Skin Studies and Aesthetic Practice provides learners with the knowledge and skills to carry out professional, ethical, safe non-surgical aesthetic treatments.

The qualification has been designed as a progression pathway from Level 2 and Level 3 Certificates and Diplomas in beauty therapy and for those with medical or other appropriate qualifications. Achievement of the Diploma will also provide progression to Level 5 courses in advanced aesthetic treatments.
