Medical Aesthetics - Program Overview
|Course Name||Course Duration||Tution Fees||Mandatory Ancillary Fees||Admission and Enrolment Fees||Duration of the Course||Duration of the Co-op|
The latest trends in health- and skin- care result in an increased demand for aesthetic services, cosmetic treatments, and consequently skilled practitioners. Patients with clinical skin conditions prefer to receive these services from a trusted, qualified doctor rather than a beautician or cosmetic nurse. Meeting your patients’ aesthetic concerns and helping them regain their healthy appearance and confidence builds long-term loyalty and adds non-medicare based revenue to your practice. This strictly science-based practice as opposed to a company-funded program is delivered by GPs for GPs, and provides training in the evolving field of aesthetic medicine.
The medical aesthetics course allows one to perform elaborate procedures that cannot be performed by an ordinary aesthetician. These jobs include that of a laser technician, cosmetologist, medical aesthetician, skincare technician, and plastic surgeon’s assistant, etc. These jobs are gaining greater prominence by the day due to the rise of the popularity of procedures such as permanent hair removal, botox, microblading, etc. Not only that, but with a whopping average national salary of about $33,896 per annum, the program has immence scope along with good compensation.

Sub-Courses (Certificate Course)
Acne is a skin ailment that happens when oil and dead skin cells build up in your hair follicles and clog them. It most commonly appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back, and shoulders, and can cause whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples. Teenagers are particularly susceptible to acne, but it can affect people of all ages.
Although there are many effective treatments available, acne can be difficult to manage. If you have acne, you may notice that your pimples and bumps heal slowly and that as soon as you get rid of them, new ones appear.
Many people experience emotional distress as a result of severe acne. Scarring is also a possibility. The earlier you begin treatment, the lesser your risk of developing such issues; however, it is important that you get treatment at any stage in your life.
Causes of acne
Acne is caused by four basic factors:
- Overproduction of oil
- Oil and dead skin cells have clogged hair follicles
- Excess hormonal activity (androgens)
ACNE’S DIFFERENT TYPES
What Are Comedones?
A comedo, also known as a basic acne lesion, is a clogged hair follicle containing oil and dead skin cells.
What Are Blackheads?
Comedones that are open at the skin’s surface are known as blackheads. They’re also clogged with dead skin cells and excess oil.
What Are Whiteheads?
Whiteheads are comedones that are closed up at the skin’s surface and remain closed. A hair follicle can’t open because of the build-up of oil and skin cells.
What Are Papules?
Comedones that have grown inflamed are known as papules. Small red or pink pimples appear on the skin. The presence of a large number of papules could suggest moderate to severe acne.
What Are Pustules?
Pustules are simply a different type of inflammatory pimple. The bump looks like a whitehead and has a red ring around it. It is usually filled with white or yellow pus.
Treatment for acne
Effective acne treatments assist to avoid scarring by reducing oil production, speeding up skin cell turnover, fighting bacterial infection, and reducing inflammation. It’s possible that progress will be gradual. Most acne treatments take four to eight weeks to show effects, and your skin may temporarily deteriorate before it improves.
How Does 2D Laser Acne Therapy Work?
To treat moderate to severe acne, the 2D Laser Acne therapy uses non-invasive Nd:Yag laser technology. The laser generates a wavelength that passes through the skin and concentrates in the hyperactive sebaceous (oil) glands. As a result, acne outbreaks are significantly reduced. The second laser treatment has been shown to reduce pore size, remove inflamed acne lesions, and fade chronic red blemishes and red acne scars. You’ll be back to your regular activities right away after this painless treatment—no downtime required.
The most popular method for permanently removing extra hair is laser hair removal. Unwanted body and facial hair can be aggravating and uncomfortable. Tweezing, waxing, and shaving are merely temporary fixes, whereas electrolysis takes an eternity and is extremely unpleasant. We can treat men and women of all skin tones and hair types in a safe and effective manner, removing unwanted hair fast, painlessly, and permanently.
How hair grows
To comprehend how laser hair removal works, you must first comprehend how hair develops. In a three-phase cycle, it emerges from deep within the hair follicle. The length of a hair’s growth cycle is determined by its colour, thickness, and location on the body. The active growth phase of hair on your head, for example, can endure for years, whereas the active growth phase of hair on your body may only last a few months. Individuals have different rates of growth.
We use a high-end laser machine for our hair removal treatments, allowing us to safely and successfully treat all skin and hair types. All of our lasers can be used on any part of the body and typically do not require anaesthesia. Even sensitive regions like the upper lip, areolas, and bikini line can be readily and comfortably treated.
How it works
The laser emits light pulses that bypass the skin’s pigment and target just the melanin in the hair follicle, inflicting selective damage to the hair root while sparing the skin’s delicate pores and structures. Hairs in the active growth phase, also known as the anagen phase, are predominantly disabled by the laser. Because not all hair follicles in a given place are in the same phase at the same time, several treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles.
Elite Medical Aesthetics Clinic will work with you to create a treatment plan that is unique to you. The number of laser hair removal treatments required by Toronto patients vary depending on factors such as hair thickness, treatment area, and hair growth cycle.
The most popular treatment for glowing, youthful skin!
Microneedling has been dubbed “the next big thing in anti-aging” by Vogue magazine, and with good reason: this treatment is incredible at assisting your skin in producing the collagen and elastin needed for healthy, restored, younger-looking skin. It accomplishes so with none of the downtime or trauma that more intrusive procedures entail.
Microneedling has become a favourite among celebrity A-listers for reducing wrinkles and fine lines, acne or scarring, sun damage and hyperpigmentation, or simply restoring a healthy youthful glow, and it can make a difference for you as well.
What is a medical facial?
Medical facials are targeted to your skin’s specific needs and often follow the same stages as a spa facial—cleansing, exfoliating, extractions, and moisturizing—but on a more intensive level. Medical facials are targeted to your skin’s specific needs and often follow the same stages as a spa facial—cleansing, exfoliating, extractions, and moisturizing—but on a more intensive level.
Medical facials can also be used to support other noninvasive procedures like injectable skin fillers and laser resurfacing. It might help your skin prepare for the treatment and improve the outcomes thereafter. It’s also a plus if your cosmetic doctor and medical aesthetician can work together to establish the optimal game plan.
Who is a medical facial for?
A medical facial may be customised to meet your skin’s needs, whether it’s to treat ageing, dehydrated, sun-damaged, or acne-prone skin, thanks to the wide range of treatments, instruments, and materials available.
Chemical peel treatment history
Chemical peels have been used to improve the appearance of the skin for ages. Ancient Egyptians treated their skin using sour milk, which contains lactic acid, in combination with oils and alabaster. Since the 1880s, phenol and salicylic acid have been used to exfoliate and lighten freckles and melasma. Chemical peel compositions and delivery systems have improved throughout time, allowing them to safely penetrate deeper into the skin for more obvious results.
The chemical peel process
We constantly go above and beyond at Elite Medical Aesthetics. When you choose one of our chemical peels, you can also choose to have your skin prepared with microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion prior to a peel allows the exfoliating acids to penetrate the skin more effectively, resulting in more obvious results.
A paintbrush-like applicator is used to apply the chemical solution to the skin. The chemical peel is neutralised and rinsed when the appropriate time has passed. Our estheticians also provide pampering post-peel treatments that replenish the skin’s hydration and nutrients using dermalogical serums and oils.
Talk to our specialist to determine the best type of Chemical Peel for you.
What To Expect During Chemical Peel Treatment
Chemical peels are a good way to exfoliate and increase cell turnover. A tingling or stinging feeling may occur during treatment, and your skin will whiten. You may notice the following after the treatment:
- Mild swelling
The uppermost layer of new skin may crust and flake as it develops, and the colour may be uneven. The duration of these symptoms is usually less than five days.
Benefits of chemical peels
Chemical peels exfoliate the skin and provide a number of noticeable benefits, including:
- Smoother texture
- More even skin tone, including areas discolored by scars, acne and other hyperpigmentations
- Brighter, clearer complexion
- Smaller pores
Chemical peels remove dullness and leave you looking younger and more radiant.
Chemical Peel Preparations And Contraindications
Chemical peels expose your face to the elements for a short period of time. Before you peel, do the following to reduce the risk of irritation:
- For at least three days, don’t take vitamins A and C (orally).
- For at least one week, avoid utilising products containing vitamins A and C.
- For at least two days, don’t scrub your face.
Any medications you’re taking should be disclosed to your esthetician.
Chemical peels are not available to clients who have had phenol peels and/or isotretinoin (Accutane) therapy within the last six months.
