NVQ Level 4 Beauty Courses

by Debbie

I run my own laser hair removal and laser tattoo removal business. I want to do my Level 4 NVQ in laser and IPL and appreciate that I need to take my Level 2 in Beauty.

While I am interested in skincare and would like to learn more about the anatomy of the skin, I am reluctant to take a course which includes waxing, manicures and pedicures as these are procedures that I will never practice. Is there an alternative level 2 or 3 course that I can take which will enable me to qualify for the Level 4 in laser and IPL ?


Hi Debbie

It is great news that you are already running a laser hair removal and tattoo removal business.

In regards to doing the NVQ level 4 laser and IPL it is not compulsory for you to do the level 2 or level 3 beauty course however if this is something your council require than I would advise you to complete level 2 and 3 before starting the level 4 laser course.

Having a level 2 and 3 in beauty will give you great knowledge even though you may not carry out any of the treatments it is vital to know the basics of beauty. Unfortunately we do not have any courses that focus on skin care only as the anatomy and physiology is covered in level 2 and 3.

An alternative to this can be for you to do individual waxing and facial unit from level 2 as it will give you understanding of skin care and hair growth.

I hope this information was useful however if you have any further questions please feel free to call us on 020 8561 5044 and we will be more than happy to help.
