Semi permanent Makeup (VTCT L4 Micropigmentation)

Beauty Courses, CPD Courses, Semi-permanent Makeup
from Allen & Walden, Kent College of Beauty Therapy

Micropigmentation and semi-permanent makeup is now a very big market in the UK and there are many pop up training schools offering in house qualifications and often training is carried out in hotels and not a professional licensed clinical training centre.

We are a long established private college with over 30 years’ experience in the industry. All our courses are delivered by highly qualified, talented and experienced lecturers who are passionate about their work.

Included in our Micropigmentation course is the ACTfast training which is a separate VTCT endorsed qualification enabling semi permanent makeup artist to legally use topical adrenaline and numbing agents. Without this training you are not allowed to use any form of topical numbing in the UK.

Relevant First aid is also part of this course.

It is very important to make sure you have the right qualifications and the VTCT Level 4 diploma in Micropigmentation is a recognised qualification, both in the UK and Worldwide and is seen as the highest standard you can reach with certification.

More and more councils and local authorities are tightening up their requirements for their registration, and like with Laser and IPL Qualifications it will soon be mandatory for both licensing and insurance to hold a nationally recognised Level 4 qualification before you are able to practice micropigmentation of any kind.
