Why study this course?
You’ll help your clients get the most from their skincare
Wanting to reduce the first signs of ageing is a common goal that many clients have when they come for treatments.
Regular facials promote cell renewal, boost collagen, and keep the skin healthy and balanced, all of which have an anti-aging effect on the skin.
Facials relieve stress! Many of your clients will have busy lives, so they might not often get the chance to do something relaxing, just for themselves. Spending a relaxing hour getting a treatment is great for the mind too.
