Our 3 or 4-day Skin and Laser Applications Course is run in conjunction with Manchester University and includes the Core of Knowledge.
It’s a great course for you to start with to get a good understanding of what you can treat and what lasers you would need to do so, and you will be able to observe and get hands-on experience of a range of Laser and IPL systems. You can optionally stay on for the 4th day of more practical or you could then attend one of our Level 4* courses which are recognised by all insurance companies and provide full comprehensive training. Note that the 3 or 4-day Skin and Laser Applications Course is not a formal qualification.

We offer one-day introduction courses in hair removal, tattoo removal or vascular & pigment conditions.

For all our Lynton customers we run clinical update workshops to refresh your knowledge and to help you to keep up to date with the latest technology.
If you attend any of our courses you will receive a certificate of attendance. This is often requested by insurance companies as evidence of the training that you have received.
For our Level 4 and 5 courses you will achieve a ‘qualification’ that is easily recognisable by insurance companies and employers.
Be aware that you should attend a Core of Knowledge every 3-5 years, as most insurance companies specify this.
