Project Description

COURSE INTRODUCTION

Low Level Laser Therapy (also known as Laser Lipo) utilises that part of the light spectrum ­where visible red laser diodes give off light penetrating into the subcutaneous layer where the fat cells are, changing the chemical balance within the fat cells which opens the pores in the cell walls to allow the content of the fat cells to “leak” out into the surrounding interstitial space from where it is transported by the lymphatic system to be naturally metabolised by the body and used as energy.

This process is non-invasive and safe. It uses an aspect of the body’s natural mechanisms to release stored fat for the body to turn into energy, which, when the client makes the minor lifestyle changes required (diet and exercise) to complete the fat elimination process, provide the “inch loss” from the treatment area.

The LLLT course includes:

Safe and effective methods of working when carrying out treatments:

  • Health and safety
  • Data Protection Act
  • Client modesty, privacy and confidentiality
  • Hygiene
  • Sterilisation methods
  • Equipment set up and Maintenance

Anatomy and Physiology, and other science relevant to the treatment:

  • What is Low Level Laser Therapy
  • How Laser Lipo stimulates the release of lipids stored in adipocytes
  • The role of exercise and a healthy lifestyle

Planning, preparing and consulting client before treatment and understanding the organisational and legal obligations of performing treatments:

  • Client consultation
  • Contra indications
  • Client suitability
  • Risk and side effects
  • Realistic expectations
  • Areas suitable for treatment

Carrying out treatments:

  • Live Demo
  • Step-by-step
  • Treatment techniques

Handling equipment and electrical safety:

  • Importance of wearing goggles throughout treatment
  • Importance of checking laser pads throughout the treatment

Providing aftercare to the client:

  • Returning clients and treatment maintenance
  • Combination treatments

NB: We expect the delegates to have read the course materials fully prior to attending the onsite course at the Academy of Advanced Aesthetics

In order to graduate from all of our courses, delegates will need to pass a final written examination to assess their knowledge and understanding, and to pass a practical observation performing the treatment in full, including client consultation and aftercare. For Level 4 courses, after having completed the practical session at the Academy, delegates will be asked to complete four case studies and a 5,000-word assignment in order to complete the course

Level 4 Accredited Course certificates will be issued externally. For our Short Courses, we will provide an Academy of Advanced Aesthetics Diploma

The Low Level Laser Therapy Level 4 accredited course carries 7 credits and will qualify you for insurance cover. Some of these credits can be transferred to other courses if the subject matter overlaps. For example, if you have studied the necessary Health and Safety legislation in the Aesthetics sector, you will not need to cover this in the same amount of detail for any additional course which covers this same material

Our Level 4 is suitable for Medical professionals and Aesthetic practitioners and includes a substantial theory component and a two-day practical training session where you will be asked to demonstrate your competence in the treatment through a series of assessments and exams

We also offer short courses for those wish to learn more about the treatments without gaining an accredited Level 4 course. Please contact us for more information
