The aim of this unit is to develop learners’ knowledge, understanding and practical skills when using
skin peeling techniques to enhance appearance. The unit covers environmental and safety
considerations, the skills involved in providing a thorough consultation to establish client suitability
for treatment, alongside the knowledge of how to formulate a specific treatment plan, tailored to
suit individual client needs and requirements.
Learners will deepen their understanding of the various chemical peels and their use, alongside the
skills to perform superficial peels to the mid-epidermis in Fitzpatrick type 1-6.
Additionally, learners will develop the knowledge required to provide pre and post-treatment advice
and post care as well as recognising potential complications or adverse reactions, to ensure the
client receives the full benefit of the treatment and to maximise results.

LO1 Appraise the safety considerations when providing superficial skin peeling treatments
LO2 Appraise accepted protocols and guidelines for providing superficial skin peeling treatments
LO3 Analyse the uses, limitations, benefits and effects of superficial skin peeling products
