SKNtech institute launches

Aptcorp has launched SKNtech institute postgraduate education, to provide therapists with the skills and confidence to meet the level required to work with high-end cosmeceuticals.

A quality curriculum of specialised courses is presented by hands-on, passionate and experienced educators.

All courses include the latest trends in ingredients, equipment and cosmeceuticals that are involved in treating skin disorders.

SKNtech institute postgraduate education utilises cosmeceutical products developed by world acclaimed plastic surgeons and dermatologists, namely Marc A. Ronert, M.D., Ph.D., who is a US Board Certified Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeon as well as a Fellow of the European Board of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (EBOPRAS).

Rosa Maranon, Director of Sales & Marketing, Aptcorp, explained the rationale behind the Skntech:

“Our industry has now grown into a high tech, scientific arena which means the skin therapists of today need to be familiar with complex ingredients and be trained to use advanced equipment technology, and possess a clear awareness of the needs of today’s clientele. Skntech institute’s aim is to raise ‘the bar’ in effective skincare, thus increasing the level of knowledge and skill set amongst skincare professionals.”
