This Course is ideal for those who wish to study Aesthetic treatments including Facial Electrotherapy to a very high standard. Graduates of this course are immediately employable and highly sought after by Top Salons.

Students can complete further studies in Cosmetic Science as well as extra Practical Protocols, which when combined with salon treatment hours in our College Salon will allow the student to undertake the prestigious CIDESCO Aesthetics Certificate Examination.  It is no longer a requirement to student body therapy to be CIDESCO qualified. This reflects current employment demands, Aesthetics Clinics which specialise in advanced facial treatments do not require Body Therapy.

After completing the CIBTAC Aesthetics diploma course we would recommend that you follow-on from this by taking the, CIBTAC body therapy diploma or CIBTAC massage anatomy & physiology. With these combined beauty therapy qualifications you will acquire all the skills needed to work in a day spa, hotel spa or health resort as a beauty therapist.

Once you have completed the CIBTAC beautician and body therapy qualifications, you will be able to continue to study to achieve CIDESCO beauty therapy diploma qualification. Please ask for more details on the CIDESCO international beauty qualifications.
