Providing delegates with the tools and knowledge needed to carry out the ‘Medico Beauty Method’ of advanced skin consultation and 7-Point Skin Analysis to ensure correct diagnosis of skin concerns and identify their root cause to effectively resolve the problem, instead of treating the symptoms. All of our advances skin protocols combine proven treatment modalities with our advanced Chirally Correct treatment system by CosMedix. Using only ingredients that communicate with the living layer of the skin for a more corrective approach to treating skin conditions using medical skincare without irritation or downtime.
As a Medico Beauty Institute delegate, you will learn the following protocols.
The Medico Beauty Method of Advanced Skin Consultation was created to offer beauty therapists, aestheticians and aesthetic medical practitioners a way of accurately identifying the root cause of their clients / patients skin condition. We take a ‘corrective’ approach to treating skin, rather than masking symptoms we aim to resolve skin concerns at the root.
The Medico Beauty Method teaches delegates how to consult with their client / patient to successfully identify the root cause, using a holistic approach that reviews all aspects that affect skin health, including dietary, lifestyle and emotional factors, as well as topical treatments and homecare.
The 7-Point Skin Analysis is an extension to the advanced skin consultation and used in conjunction to correctly identify skin type and measure contributing factors in the skin that can’t be seen with the naked eye.
Using an ultraviolet lamp we are able to measure levels of oil, hydration, depth of pigmentation in the skin. We also measure skin thickness, vascularity, photo-damage and Fitzpatrick type. All 7 points are considered when designing the bespoke treatment protocols for our clients / patients and ensuring safe application of our metabolic chemical peels.
Our LUNA Fusion Med-Facials are a unique combination of Foreo LUNA Professional ultrasonic cleansing plus medical aesthetics facials using our advanced skin treatment system by CosMedix.
This unique treatment protocol uses LUNA ultrasonic technology and anti-microbial medical-grade silicone to deep cleanse the skin while simultaneously stimulating blood flow and encouraging lymphatic drainage.

CosMedix Metabolic Peels are the new frontier of chemical peels. Unlike traditional peels that rely on acids to exfoliate and cause wounding, a Metabolic Peel uses Chirally Correct acids, purified on a molecular level, plus encapsulated Retinol AGP Complex to stimulate an increase cellular turnover from within. The delivery mechanisms include liposomes, a complex of amino acids and carbon spheres called Fullerenes. Crucially this ensures that active ingredients penetrate effectively so that clients and patients achieve visible improvements to cosmetics skin concerns without experiencing irritation, discomfort and downtime.
CosMedix self-neutralizing formulations, can be left on the skin overnight, and safely applied on the same day in combination with Laser, IPL and Micro Needling.
Treatments vary in strength and can be divided into two categories that are both superficial and medium depth; ‘Today’ treatments requiring no prep and ‘Tomorrow’ peels that require a minimum preparation time of fourteen days using a Home Kit Prior.
Not only does training and certification teach the treatment protocols, attendees also learn how to successful resolve challenging skin problems and get results for Rosacea, Adult Acne and in Premature Aged Skin.
