Skin Philosophy Training prides itself on embuing students with an in-depth knowledge of the science of the skin and creating a high standard in the next generation of therapists – whilst creating a welcoming and supportive environment to learn in.
The centre was founded by Annalouise Kenny in 2010, in response to the poor standards she witnessed whilst working as a therapist herself. Laser practice, in particular, was generally taught in an ad-hoc way by the manufacturers of different machines. This meant that that staff were qualified at different times and at varying levels, affecting the standard and consistency of treatments.
Skin Philosophy Training is dedicated to providing high quality, product-neutral education including the latest and most advanced skin treatment techniques. This has spread nationwide and consists of training centres across UK & Ireland, delivering the highest levels of qualification in education of skin available. Graduates praise the small group sizes and the thorough training that gives them confidence to launch into the world of aesthetics.
What really makes us stand out is our focus on the science of the skin. It is our raison d’etre, and we are committed to passing this enthusiasm on to our trainees. Our courses are more challenging than other alternatives out there because of this, but all the more rewarding. We teach people to truly understand the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ behind every treatment, which they can then pass on to their clients.
The practise has recently expanded to create kits that our students can buy, to enhance the services they can provide once graduating. Our vegan, cruelty-free skincare, our skincare tools and Facial Electrics machine will all help elevate their practise when setting up their clinics (as well as letting them practise on lucky friends and family members whilst learning with us).
The last year has been challenging, but we responded by bringing all of our learning online, which in some ways has helped a lot of people study even more flexibly around the demands of childcare and other commitments. By the time they arrive at our training days (lockdown restrictions permitting), we are so proud of how confident our students are in their knowledge and understanding of treatments.
At Skin Philosophy, we are always learning, always teaching, and always looking to share what is at the heart of everything we do: our passion for skin.
