What Beauty qualifications means to you. (Beauty Courses)
Beauty Courses Sydney

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.
