Academy of Advanced Beauty

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

Advanced Level in Nutrients and Stress Management
Microdermabrasion (Crystal, Diamond and Salt)
Diode Light Therapy and Dermaphoresis

Level 4 High Intensity Focused Ultrasound
Level 4 Ultrasound for Skin Rejuvenation
Level 4 Low Level Laser Therapy
Level 4 LED Light Therapy

Level 4 Pressotherapy for Lymphatic Drainage and Cellulite Reduction
Level 4 Ultrasonic Lipo-cavitation
Level 4 Cryotherapy Induced Lipolysis
Level 4 Acoustic Wave Therapy (also known as Shockwave Therapy)
Level 4 Transdermal Electroporation

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.

Level 4 Ultrasound for Skin Rejuvenation Course

N
Norah
5.0 21/09/2017
What I would highlight: I've never taken extra formation in Ultrasound because I had my NVQ3 in Electrical Facials and thought I could easily pick it up from a machine manual. I'm happy I've done this course because Barbara is pretty thorough and insists on 100% accuracy but she still manages to keep it enjoyable.

What I would highlight: I’m truly grateful for Barbara’s support during this course. if you are looking to take short cuts this training will probably not be for because is extremely detailed and you are tested on everything. Manuals are sent in advance and you really need to put in the work since Barbara is going to be demanding on you. No my clients feel they’re in good hands since I had the best mentor, passionate and knowledgeable. I’ve signed up for other six course with Barbara, it’s definitely a great investment of time and money.

What I would highlight: I’m writing this to say I’ve enjoyed a lot taking my course on cavitation and radio frequency. Barbara is truly passionate about beauty teaching and clear on every subject. I feel knowledgeable and confident; could easily sell these treatments to my clients. A big “thank you” for the trust you gave to take my business to the next level.

5.0 20/09/2017
What I would highlight: I have only taken one class and currently doing the exams in Cryotherapy Induced Lipolysis but I’ve learnt a lot and I’m happy I’ve chosen this centre. The ‘beauty room’ was totally implemented and I was able to practice cryotherapy on two people. The instructor, Barbara, is helpful, full of patience and with deep knowledge of the subject. The environment was relaxed but with many things to do. It is a must to read the educational brochure before starting the course because it’s clear and allow you to follow the lesson smoothly. I cannot thank Barbara enough, her professionalism made me feel confident. She also gives support to her students anytime they required it. I hope I could do another course, definitely come back with Barbara Freytag.

What I would highlight: A really appreciated the amazing Ultrasonic Lipo-Cavitation Course that I took recently with Barbara, it will help me with my own business. I’ve done other courses but were poorly structured, just to earn money. A good therapy teaching is rare in my experience. Now I must say that this course has been the best I’ve ever taken. Barbara’s technical knowledge is remarkable and her teaching method is great. She has done so much that just imparting us a course to get a certificate. Thank you very much Barbara for such a good course and an unforgettable experience! I would totally recommend this course to everyone.

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.
