Academy of Advanced Beauty

Description

The Academy of Advanced Beauty is one of the UK's leading aesthetic and beauty training providers. We teach a selection of accredited and recognised courses, offering a bespoke Beauty Therapy level 3 foundation course as well as eleven level 4 courses in non-invasive aesthetic treatments.

Barbara Freytag, our Principal at the Academy of Advanced Beauty, is a highly trained radiographer, having worked in Poland’s top heart transplant team in the early stages of her career. Now one of the UK’s best-known aesthetic and beauty training practitioners, specializing in treatments utilizing Ultrasound, Radio Frequency and other non-invasive technology, Barbara founded the Academy of Advanced Beauty in 2009 and works closely with leading insurance companies and regulatory bodies. Barbara wrote the first wave of non-invasive treatment courses, and was one of the first people to write courses on Acoustic Wave Therapy and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound.

Barbara is qualified in:

A1 Assessors Award
PTLLS & DTLLS

Microdermabrasion (Crystal, Diamond and Salt)

As most new aesthetic technology has migrated from the medical world, Barbara’s medical experience has given her a considerable edge in writing courses explaining detailed core knowledge behind the treatments, what makes the treatment effective, and how to get the best results, safely. Concentrating on training students to really understand the treatment rather than selling any particular machine, has enabled Barbara to stay independent.

The combination of her medical background and nearly 10 years of experience in the industry makes Barbara one of the best known trainers in the aesthetics sector, having spoken at over 60 events since founding the Academy. Her emphasis and focus on good technique, client consultation and care, correct machine operation and safety are what make Barbara and the Academy of Advanced Beauty unique.

We are a small team, working to the highest standards. We are proud of our achievements and translate this into our training sessions where we take pride in seeing our students thrive when given individual attention and care. For the second year running, the Academy of Advanced Beauty has been nominated for the “Diamond Safety in Beauty” award in the Training, Education and Development category and for LUX International’s Best Aesthetic Training Provider in the UK award.

About the course: I just wanted to write and tell you how pleased I was with my training with you for my ultra-sound and micro-Dermabrasion I found the training excellent with hands on and theory covering all aspects of an intensive day. Most of all I like the after advice that you are always there to answer any questions on the phone. I have got quite a good clientele who are having this treatment and are pleased with the results. So good luck with more training it was great having one to one also as Barbara is very caring and passionate about her courses.

About the course: I have just spent a day training and doing exams in Cryotherapy Induced Lipolysis with Barbara Freytag at the Academy of Advanced Beauty. I learnt so much and am absolutely delighted that I chose to do my training here. The 'beauty room' was very well equipped and I was able to perform the cryotherapy on two clients. Barbara was so knowledgeable, helpful and patient that I was filled with confidence. The atmosphere was relaxed without being lax as there was so much work to cover. It is absolutely essential to read the education brochure beforehand as these too are clear and precise and made the days studies run smoothly. I cannot praise Barbara enough, she was professional yet still made me feel at ease. She is a mine of beauty and wellbeing information that I felt I wanted to spend more time there. Barbara has made it clear that her students can call her at any time for support and with any queries we may have. I wish to do another course and without a doubt, I will return to Barbara Freytag.

About the course: Thank you so much for the knowledge and all the advice I received on your diamond micro¬dermabrasion course. Not only was the course thorough and effective in making me proficient and confident it was a pleasure to learn from such a lovely environment. I came away feeling very pleased I chose The Academy of Advanced Beauty and my business has benefited no end from taking the course. The after-care was excellent and I didn't feel like I was on my own at any time, it gave me confidence knowing there was always help if I needed it. Everything 1 needed to know was covered extensively and I will definitely do further training in the near future with you. I cannot thank you enough for the time and effort you have spent with me and all of my customers are very complimentary of their treatments. It is the only treatment I have ever done where I receive thank you texts days after their treatments expressing their gratitude for how good their skin feels and I know that you have helped me to achieve the exceptional results that they receive. Thank you once again kind regards

Now one of the UK’s best-known aesthetic and beauty training practitioners, specializing in treatments utilizing Ultrasound, Radio Frequency and other non-invasive technology, Barbara founded the Academy of Advanced Beauty in 2009. Barbara works closely with leading insurance companies and regulatory bodies and is proud to have just launched eleven Level 4 accredited courses in non-invasive treatments.

History

Academy of Advanced Beauty, founded by Barbara Freytag in 2009, is one of the UK's leading beauty and aesthetic training providers. Created for aesthetic practitioners and beauty therapists holding Level 3 Beauty Therapy qualifications, or equivalent, the Academy of Advanced Beauty provides high quality and in depth courses in non-invasive aesthetic treatments. Since its conception, our team of highly dedicated and experienced professionals have been committed to providing bespoke training packages in non-invasive aesthetic courses to best suit our students. We are constantly developing courses for treatments we anticipate will grow within the beauty and aesthetics industry, and our medical training and specialisation with Ultrasound has helped us create some of the newest courses for cutting-edge treatments, with special mention to High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) which is steadily growing in popularity across the UK and abroad.

We aim to offer new and innovative courses and have responded to our students’ requests to provide courses for new and emerging treatments. We are very proud of our students and their hard work, and hope to be able to continue to expand our portfolio of courses in the future. We take great care to ensure our students are supported every step of the way through their training programme with us and we look forward to hearing the achievements and successes of our students from all over the world.
