Chemical peels are the foundation for any effective skin care regiment.  This course teaches you foundation principles for safe and effective chemical peel application. We then move into advanced combination therapy.  Microneedling has long been one of the most effective treatment modalities available to induce collagen production and stimulate overall dermal rejuvenation. When combined with chemical peels, your clients will experience drastic and long-lasting results. Microneedling and peel combination therapies deliver excellent improvement in texture, tone, tightness and pigmentation.  This course is appropriate for those with foundational understanding of skin physiology, skin typing and skin conditions.  NIMA recommends that you check with your state to determine the licenses necessary within your area to perform chemical peels and microneedling treatments.  Common licenses required, include ME, RN, PA, APRN, MD, DO.

The Anatomy Cadaver class was so much more than just getting the chance to sit next to a cadaver! If you think you know everything there is to know about the layers of the skin, its purpose, and the role it takes in the physiology of the body - you don't. Jonathan's excitement for anatomy is contagious. I am really grateful to have been apart of the class.
