Advanced Blemish Removal - Level 5 Certificate


About the course

The VTCT (ITEC) Level 5 Certificate in Advanced Blemish Removal is an advanced treatment qualification aimed at level 4 qualified practitioners aged 18 and over, who wish to add this therapy to their repertoire of treatment offerings.

This qualification is one of a new suite of level 5 advanced aesthetic therapies developed as a progression route for level 4 practitioners wishing to add to their repertoire in specific treatment modalities. 

Learners are required to hold a level 4 skin blemish removal qualification to progress onto the level 5 advanced blemish removal qualification. Learners who hold a level 3 beauty therapy qualification or equivalent will be able to access the level 4 skin blemish removal qualification as a natural progression route.

This qualification is informed by employers and national occupational standards for beauty therapy and includes all the required elements to work effectively as a fully commercial advanced blemish removal practitioner. Learners must achieve all mandatory units which include:


•  Principles and practice of non-medical aesthetic therapies


•  Advanced consultation for non-medical aesthetic therapies


•  Advanced skin care for non-medical aesthetic therapies


•  Provide advanced blemish removal treatments


Throughout this qualification, learners will develop their knowledge and understanding of relevant anatomy and physiology and health and safety pertaining to level 5 aesthetic therapies. They will also develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to consult with and analyse clients whilst providing advanced blemish removal treatments. In parallel, learners will develop their communication and customer service skills and widen their knowledge of the principles and practices of level 4 aesthetic therapies, all of which are valued highly by employers.

The primary purpose of this qualification is to prepare learners for employment in the advanced aesthetic industry providing advanced blemish removal techniques. Additionally, learners may choose to further develop their knowledge and skills by completing supplementary specialist qualifications at level 5 in the following:
