The core philosophy behind Erasure Skin Academy is based on the importance of providing quality training from a clinic environment. We believe in the importance of teacher led training from within a real clinical setting that emphasises practical application of skills.
Recently there has been a need for change within the beauty industry, with a move to offering courses to a higher level to insure competency amongst beauty therapists. This has enabled those career minded therapists to move towards non aesthetic industry by enrolling onto courses at level 4 and 5; offering treatments from Ultherapy, Theramage to laser skin rejuvenation.
Erasure skin academy has a team of assessors and internal verifiers with various backgrounds in the Beauty and business area. The school is owned by Mae and David who having recently returned from 6 years overseas having brought invaluable skills back with them.
