What Beauty qualifications means to you. (Beauty Courses)

Every time we have new admissions or our lovely prospective students inquire about our courses, they ask us few questions about the qualification they are going to achieve. What they can or  how their qualification will work for them. Here,we are trying to answer some of those questions.

Beauticians can be trained on the job with no formal qualification or training, however you are advised to at least complete Certificate III in beauty treatments. Beauticians mostly perform beauty services such as spray tanning, waxing, tinting, nails, makeup and lash extensions. They may be allowed to do basic express facials, body treatments and massage but only under supervision.

We mostly use the general term of Beauty Therapist for anyone who is certificate IV or Diploma of Beauty Therapy qualified however, there are differences in what treatments they can perform.
Beauty therapists with a Certificate IV qualification are sometimes known as Estheticians. They can perform all beauty services mentioned above, they are trained in performing various facials and massage and study anatomy & physiology and basic cosmetic chemistry. Estheticians usually work in spas and beauty salons.

Students we have studied and achieved a Diploma in Beauty Therapy as sometimes referred to as Aestheticians and are trained to perform advanced skin treatments that also includes cosmetic equipment such as high frequency, galvanic, microcurrent, sonophoresis, LED, oxygen infusion, radio frequency and ultrasound cavitation. They have had further training in skin anatomy and physiology, skin diseases and disorders and cosmetic chemistry. Some colleges also offer microdermabrasion as part of the diploma training. Sydney college of skincare have this unit in the diploma course.

Dermal Therapists – Bachelor of Health Science (Dermal Therapies)
Dermal Therapists have continued to an Advanced Diploma, a Graduate Diploma or a Degree qualification. Aestheticians and Dermal Therapists have extensive training in skin anatomy & physiology, skin conditions, cosmetic chemistry and are trained to analyze and treat skin through a variety of advanced techniques. They typically work in medical settings such as Medi Spas, Skin Rejuvenation Clinics and Cosmetic Clinics. Working alongside doctors specializing in Cosmetic Surgical and non-surgical treatments, they have advanced training in laser, IPL, skin peels, photo rejuvenation, cosmetic tattooing and micro needling. Dermal Therapists can continue to further studies and training and with advanced qualifications, are able to perform injectables under the supervision of a doctor.

We at Sydney College of Skin care always put every effort to teach our students each and every skill so that they walk out of here as confident graduates. This week was no different as it has been happening for the last 20 years, one of our graduates walking out as confident young lady.

In her own words about her experience with us and we are very happy to share it with you all.

“Thank you to everyone for your time and the training I received while I was at Sydney College of Skin Care. I have lots of happy memories and made some wonderful lifelong friends. The new campus in Hornsby is modern and convenient. The staff are always friendly and very approachable which made my learning lot more easier.

The main thing I loved about SCSC is that they have a very good mix of theory and practical which made me lot more confident and I was so confident even before I saw my first client during the student salon in college.

Thanks Sydney College of Skin Care for such a wonderful experience and I wish them all the best. I am already considering to study further with them.”
