Female undergoing skin rejuvenation IPL treatment

This new course is for the advanced learner seeking an independent award certificate at Level 4 in Light Based Hair Reduction and Skin Rejuvenation. The learner will be typically a doctor, dentist, clinic or salon manager or therapist already using laser or intense pulsed light equipment wishing to achieve the minimum recommended educational conditions published by national educational bodies or required by public and professional indemnity insurance providers. The Level 4 candidate in Light Based Hair Reduction and Skin Rejuvenation will therefore have completed ‘Core of Knowledge’ Laser User Level 4 training or have attended a recognised laser safety certificated course as a pre-requisite before taking this advanced course in Laser/ IPL Hair Reduction and Skin Rejuvenation.

Hair reduction on male beard using IPLThis course has similar video presentation content to the OLT Level 3 Light Based Hair Reduction course, but with additional material covering the vascular and pigmented lesions and skin rejuvenation. As this is a Level 4 course, a deeper understanding of the training video and workbooks is required including laser/IPL applications for skin rejuvenation, to answer the series of more challenging multiple-choice assessments. Several elective assignments must be completed and submitted as a Portfolio of Evidence along with documented case studies as evidence of occupational hands-on skills. OLT provides additional study resources to assist the completion of all these portfolio tasks.
