Facial Gua Sha is the use of a scraping tool, usually Jade to clear out facial tissue, increase blood supply, tone and lift the facial muscles and generate new collagen whilst increasing the luminosity of the skin.

Cosmetic Facial Cupping is the use of a small smooth edged cup, usually silicon to clear out facial tissue, increase blood supply, tone and lift the facial muscles and generate new collagen whilst increasing the luminosity of the skin.

Face lift massage is a strong treatment that uses various techniques to induce collagen, tighten muscles, reduce and relax tight areas as well as shape and sculpt the facial tissues and contours of the face.

Cosmeceutical serums go through all layers of the skin to give the maximum benefit to aid the above treatments and maximise results.

The combined facials course teaches you the knowledge and skills to effective facial treatments, and includes training with modern cosmeceuticals. These techniques are extremely popular and have appeared in Vogue UK and some in Vogue New York more than once. The course consists of theory and practical hands on application learning Facial Gua Sha, Cupping, Face Lift Massage and Cosmeceuticals using the equipment provided on the day.

You will receive a full certificate for the course, which can be upgraded to an optional diploma by submitting 10 Case studies 3 months after course completion. These are assessed by an external examiner (examiner fee applies).
