Why should I offer Level 3 Peels?
Chemical peels offer aestheticians and advanced skin therapists a truly effective non surgical approach to treating a wide variety of skin conditions and concerns. The popularity of superficial to medium depth in clinic and salon peeling treatments have risen considerably over the last decade. Clients expected to see advanced skin peeling approaches on skincare treatment menus. When understood and used correctly chemical peels can effectively treat a number of skin conditions and concerns over time including:
- Premature Ageing
- Sun Damage
- Uneven Skin Texture
- Enlarged Pores
- Acne Scarring
Progressing to a Level 3 peel allows the practitioner to treat the skin on a deeper level. However thanks to CosMedix’s use of Chirally Correct Acids and encapsulated Retinols, it allows for a medium depth peel to be applied in a safe and controlled manner. Ensuring they are suitable for both non-medical and medical practitioners alike.
Note: Level 3 indicates the depth of peel, ranging from moderate to medium depth peel. It does not indicate a level of qualification.
The cost of training is included when you open a CosMedix account. There is no additional charge for training. However we do have minimum spend on opening orders to qualify for complimentary training.
