VTCT (ITEC) Level 4 Award in Skin Peeling (chemical peels) is an advanced qualification that has been designed uniquely for level 3 qualified beauty therapists or medical experts who want to add advanced aesthetic treatments to their treatment offerings. 

The Level 4 chemical peels course will not only teach you how to correctly complete skin peeling treatments. Students will also learn the science behind the procedure to develop all the skills required to carry out skin peeling treatments safely. 

In the course, students will learn how to use various chemicals for skin peelings, such as;

  • Glycolic acid

The course will consist of four units:

In the Advanced consultation for non-medical aesthetic therapies unit, training will include: the how-tos of client consultation – explaining procedures, contraindications, and patch testing. Students will learn how to give Post-treatment advice – the need for SPF & UVA sun protectors, preventing infection, and additional treatment plans.

The Principles and practice of non-medical aesthetic therapies unit will focus on the core science behind chemical peels – the whys, the hows, and when. Students will also learn health and safety elements that cover preparing the working area, sterilising equipment, and the correct disposal of equipment.
