Advanced Skin Analysis Course

The complete ASA (Advanced Skin Analysis) course modules are detailed below:

Skin analysis courseThe Advanced Skin Analysis course (ASA) is an innovative and progressive course that is essential knowledge for all qualified Beauty Therapists, Licensed Aestheticians and Medical Aesthetics Practitioners serious about a professional career in skin treatment therapy.
The learning outcome of this course is the complete understanding the causes of a variety of skin conditions from a cellular perspective, along with learning how to use a detailed consultation to determine the contributing factors to conditions, allowing the formulation of a priority solution plan.
By understanding how and why the cells and systems of the skin have been compromised, more targeted and effective interventions and treatments can be prescribed.

This course will not only expand your knowledge of the skin by reviewing skin Anatomy, Histology, Morphology and Physiology, but give you a new respect for the largest organ of the body.
You will learn how to analyse and determine the causes of skin conditions effecting texture, colour and secretions by exploring skin structure and function and relating it to extrinsic and intrinsic causes.

The core of the method focuses on determining the CAUSES of skin conditions experienced, in order for the appropriate targeted interventions. This is in contrast to the more simplistic approach of treating the SYMPTOMS of the conditions that is often employed by many individuals. Read more here.

The Learning Path of the course consists of 56 units of learning (lessons) over 7 modules . Individual modules are listed to the left.

The entire course is approx 65 contact hours and is independently awarded 65 CPD points.  Typical completion time is between 3-4 months, with a maximum duration of 18 months.

The 7 modules in the learning path are completed sequentially to obtain certification as a Pastiche Skin Diagnostic Technician.


Our participants from around the world have gained insight and  career changing knowledge from our courses, and the word is spreading... read what they have to say!
