IPL Light Therapy

Course Description

Hair removal is always in highest demand in both the spa and medical cosmetic industries. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is considered the best alternative to laser hair removal. This light therapy is quickly growing in popularity thanks to its proven fast results at affordable prices. In this treatment, a focused pulsing light is skillfully applied to the surface of the skin. The light travels down the hair shaft to the root. At this point, the IPL reacts with the hair and skin’s melanin, causing a scientific light to heat energy conversion that vaporizes the hair and its root, and often destroys the hair follicle. Pain is quick and targeted, and recovery is immediate. The heat generated from an IPL treatment does not damage the epidermis in any way. In fact, IPL is often used to clear up and heal a variety of skin conditions.

This extensive course provides estheticians, nurses, and electrologists with theoretical and practical methods of how to safely optimize treatment when using devices such as the IPL. Didactic and photo-light lectures combined with hands-on training ensure a thorough understanding of the use of aesthetic lasers. Attendees will provide and receive treatments during hands-on.

Microneedling is trending, and for good reason. Everyone is falling in love with the results! With proper training it’s, minimally invasive with little to no downtime. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, serums and stem cell technology to help maximize client’s results.

The benefits of micro-needling are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin, scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation and dark spots. The outcome is beautiful, youthful looking skin.

Advanced Waxing featuring Love Beauty Wax

Knowing basic waxing does not mean you are qualified to confidently and efficiently perform advanced waxing techniques that today’s clients are looking for.

This class includes topics and hands on techniques such as: Brazilian, Bikini, Body, Face and Brows.

Class sizes are kept small so that your instructor can customize the training and focus on the areas of the face and/or body that you are looking to increase your skills.

Brazilian Waxing – This popular bikini wax requires special technique and care to avoid damaging the extremely sensitive skin. Brazilian waxing is being watched more closely by officials lately and has even been in current events due to serious infections caused by inexperienced technicians. This course will ensure you are certified for Brazilian waxing, giving your clients confidence and keeping you out of the news.

Brazilian bikini waxes were introduced to New York in 1987 by seven Brazilian-born sisters and have since become more popular than regular bikini waxes. A Brazilian wax removes most or all of the hair in the genital area, including the delicate inner labia, anus, and testicles. (That’s right, men get them too!)

In this class you expand on your basic knowledge of waxing to learn how to perform safe and professional waxes on all areas of the body for both both men and women using hard and/or soft wax. You gain an understanding of proper positioning, draping, and waxing technique as well as the best pre- and post-care instructions and products.

Wax class teaches hard wax and strip wax. In our classes, we use a wonderful high quality wax line with a great price point. However our course is designed for generalized education so that you can take the education and work with any line of your choice.

Please Note: Class may be dismissed early due to small class sizes.

IMPORTANT MODEL INFO:

Attendees are required to arrange 1-2 models to arrive at 1:00 and 1:30pm in order to receive hands on experience. Models should grow hair out for 2-3 weeks and be willing to be waxed on the area that you’re looking to focus on. For example, if your goal is to increase your skills on Brazilian then your model should be willing to have this area waxed. In addition, attendees will pair up and work on each other for hands on. Please grow your hair out and be prepared to pair up with another professional in class.

Can I still take the class if I don’t have a model?

Yes. In the case you cannot find a model we will do our best to help arrange a model for you as long as you notify us 2 weeks prior to class. Although we cannot always guarantee a model we will do our best to accommodate. It is best for attendees to arrange their own models to maximize their class experience. Or you can register with another professional and work on each other. Please arrive to class with your hair grown out 2-3 weeks. In addition, the instructor does a great job helping attendees pair up and work on each other so that everyone in the class has an opportunity for hands on.
