The Facialist TRAINING LOGO 2.png


Hi I'm Vicki Hexter, I've been in the beauty industry for over 25 years and have spent most of that training therapists to become the best they can be and go on to have the careers they have worked so hard to achieve.


The Beauty industry has become saturated recently with therapists doing short courses. I believe to stand out from the crowd you need to be following the right path, to be the best in the industry, but with the confusion over what that is, I have put together information to explain the best pathway for you and your clients. 

Where do I come into this?

I work with a top cosmeceutical company delivering their training for equipment and products as well has having courses I provide myself. All these course are post graduate courses, meaning you need to have a professional qualification to do them.


I also give advice to all my students on insurance, licensing and general business, as having my own clinic for 25 years I have experienced all the good, bad and ugly side of the industry and to save you from having to, I can pass that knowledge onto you.

I also have a ecological and holistic way of training giving pointers on how to make the treatment more ecological and how to treat your client in a more holistic way.

All the courses I train are accredited by Centre of CPD Excellence one of the leading center's created by therapists who wanted to bring a standard back into the industry. Due to its high standards they have a wide range of insurance companies that recongise them.

Getting insurance to provide the treatments you train in

Getting insured for your business is the same as getting car insurance. Every insurer has a team of underwriters that look at each business to meet a set of pre-requirements. This could be age, experience, qualifications and treatment risk.


Acceptance by an insurer is always done on a case by case basis and a student accepted by one company, another may be refused even with the same certificate.

Prior to booking a place on a course first check you can get insurance cover your treatment. Ethically students should meet some minimum prerequisites, especially for the more advanced treatments.

Find out about getting insured on my understand qualifications page.

Plasma lift training is ideal for therapists who have clients you are not able to get that skin tighten the clients are looking for with the treatment you provide. This is a great alternative to invasive surgery for lifting the skin. 

Botox Injections


Mesotherapy is a safe, non surgical, natural skin therapy which uses a very fine needle to superficially inject professional skincare serums into the skin at an epidermal level. The training covers different mesotherapy products for different skin conditions.

It is important with regulations and the special treatment license you get this right but there is so much contradicting information, so I have put together a honest pathway to get what you need.​

At the moment you do not need a level 4 qualification to provide laser, you need to be level 3 qualified with the following certification. 

  • core of knowledge

  • Laser hair removal

  • Laser Skin Treatments

  • Tattoo removal

  • Trained paratactically on the machine you will be using

If you are buying a machine with training all this should be included in your training and you should not need to train in it separately.


When would I need to so this training?

  1. If you buy a second hand machine and have no laser training

  2. You want to have the training on your CV to make you more employable for laser clinics

  3. You want to update your skills

  4. You didn't feel confident with the training you had
