Program Overview

Our Understanding IPL & Heat Based Therapies course is an ideal and basic refresher for those that are already qualified in IPL or a good introduction for those new to IPL. Learn about the science behind IPL, how it works in the skin and what it can target, how it compares to other light-based therapies and how to make it work effectively for you in clinic.

This course is delivered by a qualified IPL Practitioner who holds a Laser Safety Officer Certification. On completion of this course, you will receive a 30min “one on one” Q&A session with Ainslie or one of other IPL technicians to ensure you are feeling confident with the information you’ve learnt.

It is recommended to follow on with our IPL Practical Training for further knowledge on treating specific skin conditions and to learn the treatment methods.

We hope you enjoy the training!
